DIY Tool Videos
We are currently focusing on creating videos about all sorts of different tools and how to use them and which tool is the right one for which job. We think that it is much easier to watch a quick DIY video clip of someone using a particular tool to get the idea.
All the tools featured in each clip will be available for you to purchase from our shop. The idea is that we stock "trade" tools at DIY prices – these are tools that tradesman will use but wont break the bank. Best of all you’ll be able to watch a quick video clip about how to get the best from the tool, how to use it safely and any trade tips to make the job a little easier.
Here’s a few tool video clips to get you started:
If there is a particular tool that you want us to feature or you would like to request a ‘how to’ video, please let us know and we’ll try and get it filmed as soon as possible for you.
Home Improvement Videos
We are also working to create videos for ever single project that we have in our projects section. This is no easy task as there are nearly 1,000 projects and we are adding more all the time. If you haven’t already you might want to check out our DIY videos YouTube channel and if you subscribe you will be able to see all the videos that we have and any new ones as we make them.
As part of our drive to improve your understanding of major building works and more demanding DIY projects, we are also producing a number of videos that feature new builds and extensions. This will allow you to see first hand what happens and get a feel for the work and disruption involved. This will help you to plan your project, and if you are thinking of doing it yourself, it will allow you to see where you think you might need help.
These videos will feature every aspect of the build and therefore will give you a great overview of what has to be done. You can then use the more specific videos to understand the specific DIY jobs that you will need to do to move the whole project along.
Working with Tradesmen Instructional Videos
