Tarmac, the UK’s market leader in construction materials has launched a search to find the biggest DIY dodger in the UK – with £1,000 of B&Q vouchers on offer to help him, or her, to tackle those unfinished home improvement jobs.

Guy Maddock, Head of Marketing at Tarmac, said: “We’re urging the people of Britain to name and shame those friends and family who love to dodge DIY. We are looking for those people who lack the skills or confidence to look after all the repair and maintenance jobs around their homes.

“We have just launched U-CAN, a revolutionary new range of DIY repair products that can inspire even the most novice home improver. The innovative U-CAN ‘mix in the bag’ products include easy-to-use mortar and concrete, as well as products designed for specific jobs such as patio repair and floor leveller.

“There really is no excuse now for not tackling all those unfinished home improvement tasks, so we want people to ‘dob in’ all those DIY Dodgers for the chance to win them a fantastic prize.”

To dob in a DIY dodger visit and they could be in with a chance of winning £1k worth of B&Q vouchers. U-CAN is available at B&Q stores nationwide.

Guy continues: “If we took the time to actually learn a few basics and had a bit of patience instead of giving up at the first hurdle or not even starting in the first place, we could actually surprise ourselves with our skill and save money at the same time.”
