The Beginner’s Guide to Home Improvements – By Kens Yard

DIY can be quite intimidating, can’t it!? Even if you think you’re quite handy with a spirit level and power drill (or not, as the case may be), projects don’t always go to plan. It can cause some pretty major fall-outs among couples, or just frustrate you to the point where you give up!

But, it doesn’t have to be that bad. The trick is just to ease yourself into DIY, starting with some of the easiest home improvements you can make, gradually stepping up the level of difficulty until you’re able to do absolutely any DIY project without a hitch.

That’s where this beginner’s guide comes in handy. Whether you need to know how to put up a pair of curtains, fit your TV to the wall or simply fix a dripping tap, you’ll find everything you need to know in here. And best of all? Each section contains a high quality video, with a bullet point breakdown of the tools you’ll need, plus a handy step by step guide. Take a look for yourself and get stuck in to a DIY project!

Painter and decorator based in Southend on Sea

Having lived and worked in the Southend area and working as a painter and decorator since 1993 I have over this time covered a variety of decorating and home improvement and handyman projects. Covering mainly residential work but not exclusively as I have done some commercial projects also. Some of the areas covered are Great Wakering, Barling, Southchurch, Rochford, Southend, Thorpe Bay and surrounding areas.

I find sticking to this area I can keep a good reputation and my name is seen and known around the area, I used to travel further afield but rarely do these days.

Having started my business before the internet became popular I have grown with the web and have websites, blogs, social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as doing some videos on YouTube. I have also been asked to do reviews for several decorating items and paints. I have also created and coded myself some calculators to help you work out the quantity of materials required for your job. I can work these out for you on an onsite visit and source them if you require.

If you would like me to do your decorating, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 0845 0037 508 or use our online estimate form to arrange an onsite visit. I will visit your property and discuss your requirements, materials and answer any questions you may have, you can also be rest assured that I will be the person who will be doing your job, we do not sub-contract out work, this gives both parties an excellent working relationship. I do not give prices over the phone or without looking at the job, once I have seen and discussed with you your requirements, you will receive an estimate from me, either via email or post.
