Hi all

Over the years I have seen new trends come and go something new that you can do to your house or buildings.

Do you think that things like DIY laminate flooring and other do it yourself type packs have impacted the industry as a whole?

There so many things you can buy ready to clip together etc, flooring I thought was the best example as its so wide spread.

Im quite a handy guy but I did pay someone else to lay my floor just to save me the hassle.

No, not really. DIY was always an American way of life, less so in Europe where professionals get more respect.

As many said, we come back and fix some of this stuff.
