design • build • maintain



DIY-SOS is a family business, based in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, which began in 2005. Set up by Mike and Dean (father & son) to provide customers with a new approach to having work done in their homes and businesses.

Originally from a design background, during the pre computer era when you still had to be “good with your hands”, we both possess both the manual skills needed to ‘create’, along with the designer’s flair to ‘think outside the box’ when conceiving of ways to deal with a space, much like an architect.

The difference we bring to your home and your project is untypical of your ‘average builder’… we understand that it’s your home and you’re careful about who you let in it. Too many builders have a crash-bang-wallop attitude and are more concerned about getting the job done as fast as they can with no regard about how it might differ to make it unique for the customer. It’s pretty much ‘same job, different house’ to them. We know, we’ve had them in ourselves!

We’re different. We consult with our customers and give them ideas and solutions they had not had the slightest notion of. This comes from our creative background, paired with the things we’ve seen and done, since starting this business.
