New research has revealed that the average British homeowner has seven DIY projects that need doing in their property, and 14% think they will never complete all the maintenance and DIY jobs in their home.
The average British household has seven DIY projects that have been left unfinished or not even started, and the majority of people have begun a project without finishing it. What’s more, over two thirds of Britons say that they have tackled a home-improvement task themselves before having to hire a professional in.
