Home improvement tips from you lot

It was National Home Improvement Week recently, so we thought… what better way to celebrate than get some top tips from you wise trades?

You definitely had some interesting suggestions for those over enthusiastic DIY-ers out there!

Here are some of our favourites.

A lot of you said the key was research and preparation…

“Always do your research first. The oldest saying is the wisest – measure twice, cut once!”
–       Jennifer Carroll

“Take your time to do the prepping properly.”
–       Gareth Drake

“Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!”
–       Jake Spicer

While others had some pictures of what *not* to do…

“Don’t do this (disclaimer: this wasn’t me, seen on-site!)”
–       Ross Mcfayden

“Always use an experienced digger driver, not a waller who fancied a go…”
–       Andrew Hartley

But we think that this trade had the best advice of all…

“Get the actual trade for the job!”

We’ve all been there, Ross.
