DIY Home Repair Articles

As a home owner, it is our responsibility to keep our homes in top shape.

While it would be great if our house and apartment always stayed in the perfect as-new condition we built or bought it in, unfortunately it is a reality that over time things break, get worn out and need repairing.

DIY home maintenance is a scary idea for many people not raised on the idea, but we are here to show you that it is nothing to fear. You don’t have to pay a professional to come and replace your door hinges or install your new barn door. We review the latest products and kits designed to make your DIY home repairs and home improvement jobs easy and stress-free, plus install guides and buying tips to ensure you only pick-up the right product for your needs.

If you’re keen to fix up your kitchen cabinets, doors, windows, walls, furniture or even your car, we explain in easy plain language how to carry out minor cosmetic repairs around your home to make it look and feel like new again.
