Surge in DIY Over Father’s Day Weekend
A survey which has been released in time for Father's Day has discovered that men are unlikely to be indulging in a spot of DIY this weekend, in fact their wives are more likely to be picking up a hammer.
Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance, the UKs leading provider of point of sale credit solutions found that 23% of UK men say that they know DIY basics, but that their wives or girlfriends are more likely to be doing DIY this Father's Day.
It fact it was also found that men are a third more likely to have a DIY disaster than women, who are likely to compare themselves to Linda Barker and Charlie Dimmock. Meanwhile men tend to compare themselves to Nick Knowles, who is more style than substance when it comes to DIY.
Despite these figures, 27% of men questioned admitted that doing DIY is a great way to save money and more than 10% agreed that it could be a way of relieving stress.
Gerald Grimes from Hitachi has commented that it is expected that there will be a surge in DIY over this Father's Day weekend and that Sunday is the perfect day for making home improvements. However it may not be the men who are completing the work.
