I try my best, but sometimes it’s better for everyone to get a fresh perspective on a task so that’s where the contributors come in. Find out about them and what makes them tick right here 🙂 Thanks, Mick

Hi I’m Ava and I’m an enthusiastic DIY novice determined to nail (gettit?!) the most important home improvement tasks out there. Having recently become a first time home owner, I realised that I wanted to be able to fix and improve my own home myself, so I’ve enrolled in short DIY courses and  I am slowly but steadily adding to my home improvement knowledge. You can read about my experiences and mistakes here at DIY HQ, or check me out over on my Twitter page.

I’m Jimmy and I’m a plumber with over 20 years of experience in the industry. With particular expertise in heating systems and radiators, I’m there to help make you more confident in the everyday maintenance of these systems and aware of the things that can go wrong with them if you don’t! Check out my ‘How to Bleed a Radiator’ video above for an example of my work 🙂
