What level of accuracy can the best laser tools achieve compared to a tape measurer?

Most laser measuring tools will be accurate to 1/16 or ⅛ of an inch. If you are using the tool for basic measurements around the house, the accuracy of ⅛ of an inch should be perfect. 

However, you might need to use a model with 1/16-inch accuracy if you are trying to take intricate measurements. Longer range options are also easily available online today.
