As you may already know, there is more to planning your wedding’s seating arrangements than choosing which tables and chairs to rent from your local party rental service. To help ensure that everyone can find their seat on your big day, watch this video for some DIY table planning tips.

Start by considering how many guests and tables you will have, as well as how the tables will be arranged in the room. Next, use an app or sticky notes to plan the seating arrangement. Then, so that everyone will be able to find their seat, either arrange escort cards in alphabetical order or create a table plan board organized by table number.

Top Home Maintenance Tasks to Tackle This Fall

Are you ready to break out the toolbox or head to your favorite equipment rental center to stock up on home improvement supplies, but you aren’t sure which projects to start? If so, then read on to learn some of the top home maintenance tasks to tackle in fall.

Clean the Gutters

No one wants to deal with their gutters, but ignoring this part of the home can lead to problems like mold growth, foundation cracks, and roof damage. If you feel comfortable taking on this fall maintenance task yourself, then be sure to use a ladder that is in good condition and mind all ladder-use safety precautions. Otherwise, consider hiring a professional to get the gunk out of your gutters.

Seal Up Cracks

A home that has holes, gaps, or cracks in its exterior can be more at risk for pest infestations than one that doesn’t. You can help ensure that bugs and rodents don’t take up residence in your home as the weather turns cooler by repairing torn vent screens, caulking gaps in siding, sealing up leaky windows, and installing door sweeps. Besides keeping pests outside, taking steps like these can help insulate your home and reduce your heating costs this season.

Fertilize the Lawn

Did you know that grass that gets cared for in autumn can be healthier and more beautiful the following summer? Many people agree that fall is the best time to feed your lawn because the roots keep growing even as the leaf growth slows down. Besides fertilizing your yard, now can be a good time to fill in bare spots with seed, aerate your soil, and take care of any weed problems. So you can look forward to a lush, green lawn once warm weather returns, take time now to fertilize and care for your lawn.

From garden equipment and generators to drills and dollies, A-1 Equipment Rental Center has what you need to tackle your fall projects. For more information about our equipment rentals near Oakland, call (650) 369-2992.


What to Consider When Choosing a Saw for Your DIY Project

The right equipment rentals can make all the difference, especially when you’re doing construction work. Whether you’re renovating your kitchen or building a shed, you need the right tools to get the job done right. Learn what to consider when choosing a saw for your DIY project by reading ahead.

What You’re Working With

Start by assessing the materials you’re going to be working with. If you need to cut through tougher materials like metal or stone pavers, you will need a heavy-duty saw to get the job done. If you’re only cutting through flimsy wood, on the other hand, you might not need such a high-powered tool.

Hand Versus Power

When you head to the equipment rental center to find the right saw, remember that there are two basic categories: Handsaws and power saws. Handsaws don’t require any kind of fuel or electricity. Instead, you operate them manually, so they’re better for smaller projects and quick cuts. If you find it difficult to work with a handsaw or need heavier duty equipment, you need a power saw. Power saws do require a power source, which may be a grounded plug or a rechargeable battery pack.

Equipment Rentals

You don’t need to purchase a saw to use one for your DIY project. If you don’t often have any need for a saw, then you might be better off with an equipment rental. You won’t pay full price when you go with a rental, and you’ll have a large selection to choose from. Equipment rentals are easy to upgrade, you don’t have to maintain them, and you will never worry about them depreciating in value. By renting your saw, you stand to save money and use only the highest quality equipment without even having to maintain it.

Preparing Your Home for Painting by Pressure Washing

A new coat of paint can make a huge difference, but you must get your house ready. If you don’t already have a pressure washer and painting supplies, talk to your equipment rental professionals. Watch this video for tips.

Pressure washers can be dangerous, but you can stay safe if you know how to use them. Once you hook up your machine to a water supply, make sure water is moving through it before you start the engine. Start off standing away from your target and gradually move closer as you get a feel for the pressurized stream, and choose the right nozzle for the task at hand.
