diy advice With the weekend fast approaching, many of you may be itching to do some DIY. If you have any 'how to' questions, don't be shy about getting advice. Rather than getting in over your head, much better to be over prepared before making home improvements. If you're looking for some home improvement help, try posting a question on 'Ask A Tradesman' - a handy new tool from our friends at that makes it possible for you to get fast, friendly advice directly from the trade experts who know best.

How does it work? Well, it's pretty simple - you just post your question detailing what you need to know. In a flash reputable trades people will start responding and you'll get email alerts containing the answers. You can even view the tradesman's profiles and read reviews left by people who've hired them, which is cool because you get a better idea of precisely who the responses are coming from.

We're well aware there are tons of trade forums out there, the main problem with forums is that they're largely anonymous. And who really wants to spend hours sifting through tiling, plumbing or sparky forums? has over 45,000 trade members and knew their community could provide a much better solution.

If you've got a pressing DIY or home improvement question that you need answering - why not post it and ask the experts at MyBuilder?
