Electrical courses attendees may be needed to handle DIY projects

A home improvement source has suggested a botched DIY project could have a negative effect on a house's value, which could lead to a greater reliance on professionals who have undertaken training, such as electrical courses.

Andrew Leech, director of the National Home Improvement Council, urged people to have a go at tasks around the house, but pointed out that the end result can depend on the "expertise" of the person carrying out the process.

This could lead to more homeowners deciding to hire technicians who have completed training - such as electrical courses - instead of trying to finish a project themselves.

However, Mr Leech stressed that it is not only up to one person in a relationship to handle such matters, saying: "In this day and age, everybody has to share the problem equally, whether it's doing the job or designing. Both partners in a relationship have equal responsibility for it."

Research published by Halifax Home Insurance indicates that some people are naturally better suited to DIY tasks, thanks to their spatial awareness.
