Hardware Store Terminology for Beginning Handymen

Given the current economic condition in most American households, it's not surprising that more and more people are taking on home improvement projects themselves. But even simple tasks like replacing the hardware on kitchen cabinetry or putting in a new door can be very challenging for beginners. You not only need the right tools, you need to know how to use them. And, oftentimes, going to the hardware store or other retail outlet can only add to the confusion when the clerk starts speaking in home repair jargon. If you're a beginning handyman, you'll want to learn the following commonly used home design and construction terms.

  • Framing - The wood elements used in the construction of a home. When a real estate agent refers to a home as having "good bones" this is what they are talking about.
  • Mill Works - This term refers to pre-made wood products like doors and kitchen cabinets. Wood flooring, however, is generally kept in a different department at most retail outlets.
  • Plumb - This term has a few different meanings in the world of home repair and tools. It can be the vertical version of level, or it can refer to plumbing equipment.
  • Primer - A paint like substance that is applied to a fence or wall before the actual paint is put on. Primer helps keep the paint from getting absorbed into the surface of whatever is being painted.
  • Sheet Rock - Sometimes called "drywall" these slabs of gypsum rock are the core of almost every wall in most homes. They are normally painted or covered with paneling.
  • Studs - These are the wood pieces of framing that are covered with drywall. Because drywall is not strong enough to be hit with a hammer, any nails driven into a wall should be driven into the studs.
