Now that Spring has sprung many homeowners will be looking to embark on their DIY or home improvement tasks over the weekend. UniBond have recently released some new research that might be surprising to some. This research reveals that nearly half (48%) of UK homeowners enjoy doing their own home improvements! However, many are still put off due to the time it takes to do the job (48%) and lack confidence in achieving a perfect finish or making a mistake (44%).
The most common “disaster” is putting a nail or screw through concealed water pipes or cables whilst tackling the tasks of putting up shelves and pictures, and confidence still lacks in achieving the perfect finish with sealing baths or sinks. Despite this it seems that there are some tasks that we are willing to tackle, with painting walls and filling in holes being the least daunting.
Interestingly, the DIY gender gap appears to be closing as 50% of men typically enjoy doing their own home improvements, compared to 45% of women. Controversially, less women (7%) have also experienced a “DIY disaster” in comparison to men (11%)!
Commenting on the survey findings, Sinead Rogers from UniBond, who has launched the new innovative ergonomic applicator for their sealant and No More Nails range, said: “Whilst there are a number of home improvement tasks that can seem daunting, it is encouraging to see that people are still willing to do DIY”.
“Many tasks may seem difficult and take a long time to do, but they don’t have to be if you have the right tools! Our exciting new applicator is so easy to use that it takes the fear out of sealing and gluing tasks and empowers you to improve your skills to get the best job done, just “Twist, Click and GO!”. This allows you to complete tasks much quicker and to a high standard freeing up your weekend!
“UniBond’s overall aim is to “Make DIY easier”. This is achieved with our innovative products, online resources and our handy and very helpful technical team that are only a call away for help and assistance…step by step if need be!”
