We at Property Workshop (PWS) sometimes recommend the best home improvement tools & materials for DIY enthusiasts who want to save the time and stress of figuring out what to buy. If DIY is not your thing, we also recommend platforms where you can find top professionals to do the job for you.
Our recommendations are made through lengthy research and practical experience. You can trust our recommendations because we pride ourselves on following rigorous journalistic standards and ethics, and we maintain editorial independence.
Our aim is to make buying great products and hiring top professionals pain-free so you can get on with the project at hand. Our recommendations are always made by our editorial team, and our writers are never made aware of any business relationships before making their top picks.
Frequently Asked Questions
So do you only focus on the best products?
We look for what we think is best for most UK homeowners. We don’t look for the most feature-packed tools or the finest finishes. We simply pick the products that will work best and offer good value for money.
Our choices are backed with weeks research and years of experience with a wide variety of tools and materials. In addition to our own expertise, we include data from reliable sources and subject-matter experts. We also pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to regular home improvement enthusiasts.
Do affiliate commissions make you biased?
With so many products and services out there, many offering affiliate commissions, there’s no incentive for us to pick inferior products or respond to pressure from manufacturers. The most important thing for us is the trust we have from our readers. If we were to provide poor recommendations, readers like you wouldn’t support our work.
It’s important to reiterate that any affiliate commissions earned by us do NOT affect the price you pay. Furthermore, if readers return their purchases because they’re dissatisfied, we make nothing.
