Features To Look for With an Indoor Outdoor Laser Level

Posted on

If you operate a small home repair and contracting business, you may be asked to handle leveling tasks. These can be tasks as simple as mounting a television or as intense as creating a living space from a garage. Regardless of the reason, you will still need a laser level that is accurate and ready to help you with any leveling job you have. If you are in the market for a new level, here are some features to consider. 

360-Degree Leveling

One of the key features you will need with an indoor-outdoor laser level is 360-degree leveling. This is usually set up as a rotary option with either the use of a setting on your level or with a stand purchased for your level. This feature allows you to level areas throughout an entire room. For example, you can set the level in the middle of a room and ensure that cabinets, countertops, and sinks are all at the same level. You can also use it outside for patio and porch building to ensure all posts are level before moving further with the project. 

Dial-In Slopes

Depending on your project, you may need to adjust the slope. For example, you may be working on rebuilding or adding stairs. These stairs not only need to be level across, but they also need to be level down the slope. By keeping the slope level, as well as each stair, you can ensure the safety and stability of the new stairwell. With a dial-in slope, you can set the level at any given spot and simply adjust the slope with a dial or with the touch of a button on a digital screen. You can also adjust the slope according to a specific measurement. 

Multiple Power Options

You never know what you will encounter when you get to a job site. You may believe you will have the power outlet you need for the job, only to find out that you don't. For this reason, you need to have multiple power options available for your laser level. One feature that will work regardless of your location is a solar power backup. You can also find laser levels for sale with USB charging outlets as well. Having multiple power options will ensure your laser level is charged regardless of the situation. 

When you are ready to purchase your indoor-outdoor laser level, consider visiting your local home improvement store. They will have various types of levels available. Each type will have its own features and some will have specified features for particular jobs. Make sure to look over each type so you can choose the ideal option for your leveling projects and needs.
