Must haves as in what? Tools for the job?

Repair youll definitely need:
Hot glue gun 40 watt or better. Preferably with needle tip.
Carpet knife (not the folding type) orcon or roberts.
Wallpaper/linoleum knife (hook knife)
Aluminum straight edge (old gold transition stips work fine)
Seam iron
Mini stretcher (roberts)
Top cutter
Round edge blades. square edge suck.
#1, #2 Philips screwdrivers long handle (row opening)
Wide flat screw driver long handle (row opening)
Tape measure
Plyers
Shears duck bill ok at first.
Seam roller
Duofast staple gun 9/16"
Wide tuck chisel metal or teflon
Kicker
Good seam tape. Xk30 is pretty solid and holds strong doesnt peak seams.
Hammer 20oz straight claw
Wonder bar
Yellow handle tin snips (snap tack strip and cut transition strips.
Pl construction adhesive and caulk gun
.22 ramset
4d bright common nails cleaned off (hold seam tight during repair)

I use electricians husky tool bag. Its small , square, fits on shelf. And holds everything except the large tools. The 16" wide one can hold all small tools w/staple guns and kicker with vecro straps on the handle.

Here's one of my concrete kits. You dont necessarily have to keep all the cubby containers. These make great tool boxes. Just remove a few.

If you need to restretch a basement you'll want one of these.

I like the rigids. Just bought some larger jobsite boxes. Super nice when working with multiple repairs
I have the large rolling base the box(i removed all but 2 contsiners to fit roto hammer and bits. Anchors are in one cubby grease and nails in the other.
And 2 crates. It all works grest if you have a long walk through a building. Crates fit damn near anything. Just pile everything in there.

They’ve held up surprisingly well with our desert temps
