I would love to refinish my maple flooring. It was all tore out of an old Door County Inn and then installed into our home about 15 years ago. It desperately needs to be refinished. We have almost 1500 sq. ft of the flooring installed and more sitting in our garage to finish the bedrooms with.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

We want to put a chair rail and wainscoting in our bathroom, so I'd like to rent a Miter Saw. We have a couple of projects we could use it for.

Of course, I could always use a carpet cleaner rental!

I chose a carpet cleaner to clean my carpet, of course.

The people that lived in our house before us put white carpet in our family room. 10 years, a cat, dog and 2 kids later, the carpet is the pits!!! We want to tile it before our little one starts crawling but can't afford a professional install. A tile saw would REALLY help!!!! Suzanne/mmtattoo@yahoo.com

We're in a rental and thus don't have much need for serious tools. But I'd love to have a garden, and I think the mid-tine tiller would be awfully helpful toward that end.

Steph said...

My husband and I were just saying we want to refinish his parent's deck - so the drum sander so we could start the job once the weather gets nice!

Rapunzal said...

We're going to add heating/AC to our covered porch to turn it into our dining room. We need a concrete saw to cut through the brick to bring the pipes in.

A carpet cleaner would be awesome to rent and clean the carpets since we are renting...

I would love tile my bathroom so a tile saw would be great!

Thrifty Living Mom said...

Great giveaway, thanks. I chose the tile saw since we have some ceramic tiles we bought on clearance that need to be laid down in our bathroom.

We're doing some home improvements do sell our home hopefully this fall. So, we could really use this giveaway for paint, new tub and wall surround, and things to pretty the place up. The pressure washer would be great for cleaning the deck and the siding. Thanks for this great offer.

Jennifer said...

We'd like to rent a tiller, since we are gearing up for a summer vegetable garden and my husband is starting his own little vineyard.

Jessy said...

Wow..how great is it that you can rent tools from Home Depot..I really need to redo my floors.

Charity said...

We just bought our first home and the nailer is JUST what we need. Were looking at some "updating" and a cosmetic relift of the home. Ill be tearing down wall paper and painting, updating fixtures and adding flair! All the fun stuff!

Kacie said...

We went to the tool rental department yesterday to get pricing for a power rake and aerator. Our lawn needs some tlc after the long winter.

Liberty said...

A tile saw would be great to do our bathroom project!!! :)

Lori said...

I want to redo the counters in our kitchen in concrete and add a tile backsplash.

Amanda said...

We have horrible grass and I have needed to dethatch it for awhile but haven't had the extra money to get a thatcher or an aerator so this would really come in handy!!

Krista said...

I would like to rent the 2-Man Hole digger to make replacing our fence go much faster than the side we've just done. Digging the holes was by far the longest, hardest, and most back-breaking part of replacing a fence.

APRIL said...

I would love to win so i could clean the carpets. We have carpeting in every room, kitchen and bath included. Maybe I could get linoleum for the kitchen and bath instead.

Daria said...

Our grass needs some serious aeration! This one would definitely come in handy! Thanks.

Would love to rent a wallpaper steamer! Our daughter's room needs updating and we need to remove the wallpaper! She wants us to paint her room Thanks!!

BabeCaddy said...

I would love to be able to rent the carpet cleaner.. My carpets are sooo dirty..

one frugal lady said...

Wow! This could be awesome! Unfortunately, we are STILL waiting on our insurance check from Hurricane Ike that wiped us out! I chose the dumpster rental, because we totally need that much room to haul out all of the nasty stuff that needs to go! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

I WOULD LOVE TO WIN THIS, I HAVE SOOOO MANY PROJECTS TO GET DONE

Penny said...

There are several tools I would like to rent. Have quite the list of jobs to be done when the weather finally permits. I chose the 4 HP Aerator though because hubby really wants to work on our yard after losing our dog this winter. Going to try and get our yard back.

Gina said...

Oh, where to begin. First off, I'd rent the carpet cleaner and deal with the milk stains and everything else in my living room. Then, I'd use the pressure washer to clean off our patio in the backyard. It's a mess! And I rented a tiller from Home Depot last spring to plant my backyard grass; this year, the front needs to be re-done. Thanks for the chance!

My daughter is going to be crawling any day now. Our carpets could definitely use some cleaning before that.

I would love to get rid of the concrete "staircase-to-nowhere" in my back yard. It used to go to the back porch, but the previous owner closed the porch to extend the kitchen and never took out the stairs.

I am in the process of buying a new home and have been at home depot since day 1...the house needs new floors and so I would need to rent a tile saw to oputin my dream kitchen!!

With a 2 yr old, a dog, and 3 cats, I could REALLY use the carpet cleaner!

Theresa said...

This winter has caused a huge rock to heave up from the ground right in the center of our driveway. If a car goes over it, the point will rupture an oil pan or gas tank, so everyone must go to the extreme left or right side to come up the driveway. Home Depot has the answer - their Demolition Hammer for rent. My husband could break up this rock and save big bucks from hiring a contractor. Great giveaway! Thanks for chance!

I could use the tiller to help get our yard in better shape....our yard needs more dirt and I could use the tiller to loosen the existing surface so that the new dirt combines with the other for better planting of the grass seed. I hope I win!

Allison said...

I would like to have a pressure washer to spray down my fence, patio furniture and house. Living in the southeast, everything is covered in pollen this time of year and the vinyl siding on my house is growing mold on it! Yuck!

When you rent a home you are "stuck" with things you would not always have or do in your own home. A professional carpet cleaner is the way to go for spring cleaning those carpets. What a great giveaway!!!

We are still fixing up our floors since Hurricane Gustav damaged our area in 2008. We are putting in ceramic floors to replace wood laminate damaged in the kitchen, breakfastroom, hallway and utility room

I would love to add a path from my back door to my green house. The grass gets so muddy in the rain. I would also like to replace my rtont brick walkway, between tree roots & bricks freezing & crumbling, it's really treacherous to walk on.

Heather J said...

The pressure washer for about 1million reasons -from the fence to the deck to the driveway, to the siding! Those things are amazing!

We have white walls throughout our home and with a toddler it is hard to keep anything clean. Paint is a must have.

Hi and thank you for the opportunity to such a great giveaway. I need the floor maintainer because I just installed new porcelain tile floor in my entire home. They all have a haze on them that needs to be buffed off in order to make them shine. I tried to do it by hand and after only completing two 24X24 inch tiles, I thought my arm was going to fall off!

Shannon said...

Spring is finally here and my yard is screaming
"Till Me!" So I would love to have a tiller to make my yard look beautiful!

We moved to a new house this past winter and the siding desperately needs to be washed! I am excited to get started on outdoor projects now that spring is here!

Regina said...

It was really between the carpet cleaner and the airless paint sprayer. I chose the carpet cleaner because the wonderful people who sold us the house had all white carpeting put right before we bought the house - which we didn't think anything of because I was pregnant at the time and didn't have an almost 2 year old (like I do now!). Boy, do we need these carpets cleaned.

Carpet cleaner carpet express is what I want. We have already rented this time and time again. Good tool.

I need to put in a non grass backyard, We turn are car around back there and have only one water souce ( House water ) so I do not want to use that. I have Ideals but like cost less Ideals ??

Anonymous said...

I saw a picture of a beautiful patio made of brick like stones and this vibratory plate compactor is used to put them into your yard smoothly. I didn't understand the gift certificate would have to be used for a rental. What I REALLY NEED is a new back door. Mine is literally rotting. I have to push stuff up against it to keep it closed. (Also I have a violent Ex-husband and I would feel so much safer if I could actually LOCK MY DOOR!) I would use the money toward a new door.
