DIY How To Guides

Hey guys

As some of you know I'm currently putting together a DIY site called

In my view there are three major flaws with most contractor boards.
First, most of them are designed poorly.
Second, they become infested by people who cause trouble and have nothing good to say.
Last, they become a place for homeowners to ask contractors questions instead of a place for contractors to share business and trade knowledge. is an attempt to solve that last problem. Any homeowners who have questions about any given topic can do so on this site.

I need your help!

I'm trying to put together a few DIY Guides to home improvement. They will be a resource the site will offer.

These guides need to provide basic steps for homeowners to complete home improvement tasks.
How to hang wallpaper
How to Install laminate flooring
How to build a deck

These guides are not for advertising any certain product over another or for telling a homeowner they should hire a contractor to do this task instead of doing it themselves.

If you choose to write a guide it will be read for quality and used only if it’s clear and accurate. (Some editing may be done as well)

I'm not paying anyone for these but if you do decide to write one you may ad a short paragraph to the end of the guide telling people who you are, where you are located, your company name, as well as a website or phone number where they can reach you.

I'm not sure if anyone will be interested in this or not but if you are let me know.
