Welcome to DIYManager, your DIY home improvement and DIY support website. Whether you are starting or implementing a DIY project, we can provide you with the support, knowledge and contacts to get the job done.

We are a new company based in London (UK) with a solid support base of tradesmen and professionals. We are constantly refreshing our website with new information and new services, so keep an eye out for the updates and changes.

The site is divided into 6 main tabs, these include: Know.How, Services, Products, Classifieds, Jobs and Green DIY.

Our Know.How pages provide you with information regarding DIY project management, interior and exterior design advice, costs of building materials, costs of building services, building regulations, DIY video instructions, and a glossary of building terms (so you’re in the know when speaking with your contractors and building professionals).
The Project Management section provides you with DIY advice, explanations, links, and information in the following areas: building regulations, environmental impact, building design, pricing a building job, raising finance, timing, building professionals & building contractors, tendering for building work, building quotes & estimates, building contracts, building insurance & warranties, safety & security, payments and the management of works.

The Design section provides you with a list of interior and exterior design companies, and design standards organisations. Whether you are looking for inspiration, ideas or the right design company for your needs the list of designer companies is a great starting point.

Our Pricing section offers a free Excel based pricing tool and indicative building costs for you to start calculating the cost of your DIY project. You can use this as an initial estimation and something to compare against estimates or quotations from those tendering for the work. Our extensive pages of indicative building costs cover everything from the rates of building contractors and professionals, building construction, to interior fit out.

The Building Regulations pages provide a description of Planning Approval, Building Control, Party Wall Act, Electrical Regulations and Plumbing Regulations.

Our How To service will be available soon. You will have access to a library of instruction videos of DIY related projects and tasks. This will cover anything from changing a tap, interior design advice to replacing a broken window.

Our Products and Services pages provide you with a list of DIY related companies based on your search criteria. You have the ability to search for the likes of builders in London, read reviews of these companies and leave feedback once you have used their services.

The Classifieds section enables you to sell or buy DIY materials or DIY products. These could be second hand fittings and fixtures or excess building materials. You can also use these pages for posting ads if you’re looking for specific materials or products.

The Jobs section is similar to the Classifieds section where those in the trade can post for work (such as a builder looking for a labourer), or for those in the trade to look for work (such as a plumber looking for a new job).

We're focused on the environment and we've dedicated a tab on our site solely to Green DIY, providing you with information on: sustainable living, green trusts and associations, organisations and companies, grants for homeowners, and educational materials and sources. The Green DIY section also provides information on environmental building standards, green building certifications, and the green labels you can find on building products. You can also review our recommendations to green building publications and forums

We hope you find the site informative and easy to use. If you have any ideas or feedback for us, please get in touch with us using the feedback form.
