We can help you out with websites for trades, but when it comes to advising you on how to build an extension or fit the perfect lock, we’re not your guys.

However we know who are we’re delighted to have collaborated with them recently. Skill Builder, is the UK’s go-to resource for trades, self-builders and DIYers.

If you’ve never engaged with Skill Builder before, go explore. You’ll find a treasure trove of products reviews, how-to tutorial videos and building expertise designed to help the building community become better skilled, safer and more productive.

The team behind Skill Builder consists of individuals with plenty of clout. Roger Bisby, journalist and television presenter who’s provided product reviews and insight for Professional Builder magazine for over thirty years and Dylan Garton, the Skill Builder producer and editor with twenty years of experience creating video content for the building industry.

People all learn differently; the great thing about Skill Builder is the range of resources they host, making their content more accessible for anyone who’s trying to nail a skill.

Whether you learn best by watching, listening or reading, Skill Builder has a vast library of content dedicated to answering any and all questions the building industry might have. They even have an ‘ask Skill Builder‘ link, where you can submit your burning questions for expert answers and opinions.

Skill Builder’s product reviews are a valuable resource as well. Under the ‘brands’ section of their website, they work through tools from companies like Bosch, DeWalt and Makita.

If you were thinking about investing in a new product, it’s worth browsing through their archives and seeing whether their team has anything to say about it.

The team offers plenty of ways to stay in touch; whether you subscribe to their newsletter, Youtube series or podcasts, make sure you’re taking advantage of everything that Skill Builder has to offer. They also value your opinion, providing a voting page on their site, so you can help make Skill Builder better.
