TOWSON, Md., Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DIYZ, LLC recently launched a unique mobile app which helps homeowners tackle do-it-yourself (DIY) projects better and wiser. DIYZ, a play on "DIY" and "wise" (pronounced "dee-eye-wise"), is the first DIY app to combine step-by-step instructions accompanied by segmented tutorial videos, curated suggestions for tools which can be purchased in the app, as well as the option to video chat to get professional advice from one of many expert contractors who can see your project and provide help. The DIYZ mobile app is now available for free download in the Apple App Store for iPhone and Google Play for Android.
DIYZ was designed as a one-stop, go-to resource for DIYers and fulfills two of their most pressing needs: reliable content and expert advice. The app provides user-friendly content in the form of step-by-step tutorials for the 88% of DIYers who watch how-to videos for home improvement projects.* Considering that 41% of DIYers consider certain home renovations beyond their skill level, they stand to benefit from trustworthy advice to undertake more projects on their own.*
"By creating the DIYZ app, we are on a mission to evolve how DIYers of all skill levels approach and tackle home improvement projects," said Matt Nestorick, DIYZ Business Leader. "As the only app that features comprehensive content, the know-how of pro advisors and easy shopping for the right tools and materials in the palm of your hand, DIYZ gives the average homeowner what they need most—the added confidence to do it yourself and to do it wise."
Key features of the new app include:
- Real-time Access to Licensed Experts: Whether looking for help to start a project or advice to get back on track after getting stuck in the middle of one, video chat with a Pro Advisor with a tap of a finger. The cost of this service currently free for a limited time but will be $10.00 for the first 10 minutes and $1.00 for each additional minute. Our Pro Advisors are currently available during the peak hours of 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM ET Monday through Friday and from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM ET on Saturday and Sunday. Hours are subject to change and will be modified based on demand.
- Step-by-Step Instructions with Video: Choose from a large library of DIY projects in a variety of the most popular home improvement projects including electrical, exterior, lawn and garden, paint, plumbing, walls and flooring, and windows and doors. The difference with DIYZ is its segmented video and step-by-step instructions. Finally, DIYers no longer have to hit the pause button or miss a step.
- Tools and Materials Suggestions: DIYZ recommends the tools and materials to complete every project and provides the option to easily purchase directly from the app. It also compares the cost to do-it-yourself versus hiring a professional.
DIYZ also allows users to bookmark favorite projects for easy access and see at-a-glance the difficulty level, estimated cost and approximate time to complete a project. To learn more, visit www.DIYZ.com or download the app in the Apple App Store or Google Play.
