Welcome to the DIY Home Center Blog


DIY Home CenterHere at DIY Home Center we wanted to better connect with our customers, so we are writing a blog to open communication about our products and services.  This blog will focus on the following:

  • Further educate the public in detail about our product lines (underdeck, hidden deck fasteners, uv bulbs, polywood, etc..)
  • Answer FAQ’s we receive about products
  • Share recent news & statistics about any of the products we carry
  • Share insight into our industry and possible future product lines

We will writing blog posts to continue the education of the public and our customers about the products we live, eat, & breathe, on a daily basis. We at DIY Home Center look forward to creating an open dialogue with you. In fact, here are some of the ideas we have to write on in the future:

– The difference in misting fan systems

– What types of hidden deck fasteners are there, & what’s best for my deck project

– What makes Polywood unique compared to other outdoor furniture

– How can you think green when making recreational equipment for the snow (toboggans, sleds, flyers, wagons)

– What is the easiest way to find & buy a replacement uv bulb for my burnt out or busted one

– Best safe technique to clean up broken uv bulbs

– more to come…
