Hi I’m Jon. This website helps those searching for the basics about improving their home. We set it up after struggling to find information on repairing the roof on a house and thought that others may appreciate reading what we learnt in the process. Since then we have kept adding more information about many aspects of improving a home. Our approach is to offer an independent view which balances the interests of homeowners and professional tradesman. My own career background is in the marketing of building products: windows and door hardware, roofline products, bathrooms and showers, fixings and power tools. I also spent one of my early years working on a construction site so I can appreciate the practical challenges facing those in the building industry.
Using industry contacts we research and write articles about home improvements to try and even up the knowledge gap between specialist tradesman who do the job every day and home-owners who are maybe buying building services for the first and only time in their lives. We earn income from paid adverts on the site and also from affiliates who pay us for leads on different building services. We never let our advertisers or affiliates influence editorial content and we trust all our affiliates to provide a professional and high quality service. We have never received an adverse comment about any of our affiliate partners.
I hope the site helps you achieve what you need. If you think anything is missing or not well explained then please feel free to let us know via the comment box on the relevant page or via the contact us page.
