I want to tear down an old shed in the backyard. What should I use?

First, be careful in any demolition project. Wear goggles, gloves and a hardhat. If the structure has insulation, is covered in old paint or the building materials are extremely dry, also wear a respirator. Once you’re ready to begin the process, a wrecking bar or crow bar is probably best as your primary tool. They come in different lengths, and you may want more than one length depending on your project.
