  Are you clueless at DIY?  

Have you got a whole list of DIY jobs around the house that you’d love to get sorted out ?

If you need help with DIY then this site is for you. It’s aimed at the DIY beginner so you don’t need to know anything about DIY.

My name is Steve Venus. I’ve been running a successful property maintenance and handyman service for many years. I know that a lot of people would love to be able to tackle those jobs themselves but lack the knowledge or confidence to do DIY. I often spend time putting right something someone has attempted, messed up, then just given up trying. But it doesn’t have to be like that.

Why not have a go
, you’ll be amazed what you can achieve. Think of the money you’ll save, and of course, how impressed will your family and friends be?

We’ll start with DIY basics. What tools you’ll need. Each section is packed with DIY facts. You’ll get step-by-step instructions for each of the jobs you tackle and what tools you’ll need for each job. To ensure success there is advice on things to avoid, and each section has some great DIY tips.

I recommend you look at the 2 sections on Tools then Drilling&fixing first.
