Do it yourself

"Westhill Insurance – we've got it covered!"

Good old DIY has increased in popularity courtesy of the credit crunch. Home improvements are now being tackled by home owners instead of bringing in qualified trades men who are experts in their field and sure to do a good job.

Taking on little jobs yourself can be cost effective and when complete there is a real feel good factor knowing what you have achieved. The most basic DIY that people are keen to take on is painting as it can really brighten your house up and can't go very wrong.

Minor electrical jobs are also tackled as well as some plumbing but where do you stand if it goes wrong? DIY can go wrong and if you really are unlucky enough to hit a water pipe, DIY can do a lot of damage. The best advice is to check your home insurance before you get your hammer out.
