Homeowners urged to seek home improvement helpTuesday, 19 April 2011 12:08
myhammer.co.uk has encouraged homeowners to seek professional help rather than carry out complex DIY work themselves this Easter.
As many as 63 per cent of those surveyed by the home improvement website said they planned to give their home an interior facelift with a lick of paint this Easter weekend, 33 per cent have a garden overhaul in mind while over a third said they intend to fit a new bathroom or kitchen.
But with UK homeowners causing an estimated £2.1 billion in damage to their home every year as a result of DIY tasks gone wrong, myhammer COO and General Manager International, Gerrit Mueller, believes homeowners would be better served seeking professional help.
“If you are not terribly skilled it can be more cost effective to pay for work to be done to be sure of a professional job and save money in the long run rather than righting DIY disasters,” he said.
“Tradesmen at My Hammer are reviewed by other customers to give you extra confidence when picking the winning quote.”
