Welcome to the About Us page for the UK Tool Advice website. We hope that you find the information on this website, useful and informative, and that it makes your buying decision a great deal easier.
My name is Enda and along with Geoff, we run and mange this website. We are both in the construction trade, but more importantly we are both keen DIY people. The combination of experience, and a genuine love for doing home projects, make us ideally placed to review and recommend a whole range of tools.
Why We Created the Tool Advice Website
There are a lot of tool websites out there on the Internet. You may well ask why build another one? We noticed when we were searching around for tools, or even some basic simple information on DIY projects, that it was all quite disjointed.
We couldn't find a one stop shop that offered simple, clear, independent and honest advice. With our experience, we thought that we could help out with that. One night, sitting in the pub, and talking our usual lot of rubbish, we decided that we could offer something different.
Having solved most of the "world problems" we did eventually get our heads together, and decided to try and build a website, that would answer all of the common questions, and as many of the harder ones as we could.
These questions could be as simple as how do you wire a plug, to as hard as how do you go about planning and building a deck, to converting a roof space or a garage. We also share with you our wide range of picking and using the most useful tools.
Which Tools Should You Buy?
That will depend a lot on what you need to do. Some people will just want a few tools to do the most basic of jobs. Those would include hanging pictures or curtains, putting up a few shelves or to do some basic maintenance.
Other people will be more ambitious and want to be able to lay floors, fix holes in walls, fit skirtings and do some electrical tasks like adding on a socket, installing some lights, or complete renovations.
We cover off all of the different options. Most people will need a few basics like a hammer, saw and a drill. The bigger the job you want to tackle, will mean having more tools such as a jigsaw, hammer drill, a range of screwdrivers, and other electric powered tools.
Don't worry we will not bore you. We did however think you should at least know, who writes all the reviews, and the other information.
As well as our many tool reviews, we have also included a whole range of articles, on how to use them. This will include the many tasks that you may have to do at home. That could include putting up a shelf, drilling through tiles, drilling through concrete, laying carpet, fixing a leaking tap, and just about any other thing that you can think of.
The site is managed and run by myself Enda, an electrician by trade, and by my friend Geoff, a plumber with many years of experience. We have done house renovations, construction builds and extensions, loft and garage conversions, conservatories, fencing, path making and just about any other job in the construction and building industry.
Between us, we have a lot of experience, and we are more than happy to share that with you here.
So that is just a little about us. Thanks for taking the time to visit our website. We hope that you find the information you are looking for. If you have a question you would like to ask us, then pop over to our contact page, and fill in the very short form. We always try to reply within 48 hours.
Thanks again for visiting.
