Are you a budding DIYer?
Do you want to spruce up your home and make some much needed improvements inside and outside?
Are you looking to save money, and do the basic painting, decorating, fixing and tiling yourself?
DIY is one the nation’s favourite pastimes. We all love getting stuck in, making the changes that can transform our rooms or gardens, and bringing a new lease of life to our home. We want to update furnishings, replace peeling paintwork, overhaul the garden, and generally just pick up our brushes and hammers to get busy.
But most of us doing DIY are amateurs, and it’s all too easy for us to make little mistakes or trip up with a careless accident. What was a simple task could become a nightmare!
That’s why it’s important to protect your house before you start!
Dropped hammers, splashed paint and scratches from moving furniture could cost you a fortune in repairs. Suddenly all the hard work you’ve put into your home seems wasted.
But we want to help you avoid some of the common mistakes, and stay clear of the pitfalls you might face.
With a little planning ahead of time, and a few simple pieces of temporary protection, you can protect your floors, walls, and furnishings from careless mistakes.
