While accuracy is a secondary consideration with the laser measure purchase, it should be a consideration nonetheless. Laser measures are accurate to a fraction to an inch. If you are a dubious individual, a simple comparison on a few jobs will put your mind at ease. The primary consideration however is the time savings. Find any laser measure and you’ll soon become addicted. Try working on inspections with the laser for at least 5-6 inspections and you will want to never use your bulky tape measure again. I still keep my measuring tape in the car, but its collecting dust. Get a laser measure and reward yourself with time.
