Gut & Remodel! Give'r Leather Work Gloves Help Get 'er Done!

Give'r Waterproof Leather Work Gloves Home Remodel

Today’s post comes from Give’r ambassadors JC Conover and Quinn Keller. The couple is in the middle of gutting and remodeling their Portland, Oregon home. We’ll occasionally check in with them throughout the project, watching as they transform a time-tested, rundown casa into a thing of beauty.

 

Thinking about purchasing our first house was intimidating, and considering buying a "gut and remodel" house was even scarier. But this was a dream that had to be fulfilled. 

The home was in an unlivable condition the first day we walked in, but we were proud owners of this masterpiece-to-be.

Any time we were not working at our jobs, we were putting in work on the house. 

It began with demolition: three load-bearing walls, two ceilings and 2,300 sf of flooring. Plus all of the plumbing and all of the electrical had to go.

First thing's first: we made a sound investment in a mini-fridge stocked with cold cruisers to entice our close friends to join us in the demolition. 

Out came all pairs of Give'r gloves – new and old – that we could find. 

Let the demolition begin.

We threw on the 4-Season Gloves since we had no heat, grabbed a claw bar and a five pound maul and punched our first hole of what would be many into the kitchen wall.

The past 27 days have been full of ups and downs, many trips to the hardware store, and a lot of post-work celebrating over the fire-pit with friends; never without sporting the River Runner Neck Coozies (and gloves for whoever is stoking the fire).

We've completed wall, flooring and plumbing demolition, and plumbing installation is almost complete.

The Give'r gloves have formed so well to our hands that it doesn't feel like we're even wearing them anymore.  We understand the phrase fits like a glove better than ever before. 

The gloves have helped us avoid countless blisters, jabs, cuts, scrapes, burns and shocks; we only wish the rest of our bodies could be so comfortable and well-protected.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your question! The leather on the 4 Season Gloves is a thicker cut and will hold up very well with a job like plumbing. We have customers that have welded in the gloves and given us strong feedback.

The 4 Season Gloves are waterproof due to their Hipora membrane. The 3 layers of insulation, plus the leather, make for a great warm work glove.

Please feel free to email me with any more questions, thanks

I purchased two pair of give’r gloves and I’ve put the to the test. I’m a plumber in northeast of Boston on the coast of Beverly Ma.
My next purchase I would like to get a pair of 4 season, but my concern is the leather will tear
Is the leather thicker. ? I have small holes not sure how they got there
Work out doors sometimes in winter repairing water lines and I’m lookin for s pair of waterproof and warm work gloves
Will 4 season be the globe for me ? Rick
