DIY Works is a website that's designed, developed and run by a group of enthusiastic DIY'ers. All of our team started as beginners but have got to the point where they can pretty much take on any DIY challenge. From putting up a shower curtain to demolishing a wall, our experience and expertise in all areas of DIY is very comprehensive.
Unlike other websites that claim to be "DIY Experts" but have probably never picked up a drill before, we are the complete opposite. All of our content is based upon real-world experience, which is made possible by the many property renovations we carry out along with our ongoing rental property and Airbnb maintenance. The renovations and maintenance allow us to truly test out the products or tools we use and display our expertise with real-world examples of the products or tools in use as well as informative guides and tutorials. You can read more about how we test here.

We're thrilled to announce that we have also expanded our presence to YouTube. Our channel features a wide range of videos, including tutorials and product testing. As passionate DIY enthusiasts, we make it our mission to thoroughly test out the products you see in our videos. We believe in providing you with authentic and reliable information to enhance your DIY experience. Join us on our YouTube channel as we explore and test all things DIY.
All of the DIY tasks that we carry out are completed within our own properties, which include our personal homes, property renovations that we take on as well as a number of rental/Airbnb properties that we manage. Due to the fact that we carry out regular property renovations and maintenance, we are able to thoroughly test products and tools as well as create unique tutorials and guides.
Although we are often located in multiple places due to the nature of our DIY tasks, we do have a main office. We have an office because we come together as a team to create content and make the website what it is today. If you need to get in touch or even visit our office, we are located at 89 Cathedral Road, Cardiff, CF11 9PG.
If you ever need to get in touch with our team, you can do so by post or e-mail. By post, please address your letter to DIY Works and use 89 Cathedral Road, Cardiff, CF11 9PG as the sending address. However, if you want a response within two working days, you can use our contact form or email us directly at [email protected].
DIY Works is reader supported, which means that products and tools that we recommend on the site may earn us an affiliate commission through links that we provide. This comes at no extra cost to you at all but it's a means by which we keep the website up and running. You can find out more on our Earnings Disclaimer page.
