Young Men Lack Confidence with DIY

Research from Screwfix has found that young men lack confidence when it comes to DIY. They believe that this may account for why young men tend to rent properties rather than buy.

Even simple jobs like bleeding a radiator, rewiring a plug or changing a light bulb seem beyond many men, with 6 out of 10 admitting they hate DIY. Duncan Hayes from Build It magazine commented that young people may have simply become used to asking their landlord to fix problems and when renting, they cannot do small things like put up shelves.
