Top DIY tips are only a Tweet away

Published:  15 August, 2014

Lafarge Tarmac is offering DIYers the chance to get tips and tricks from an industry expert during an upcoming live Q&A session on Twitter.

Dr Bill Price, national commercial technical manager at Lafarge Tarmac Cement, will be answering questions on Twitter channel @lovecement from 10am - midday on Thursday 21 August. Anyone wishing to submit a question in advance can do so by visiting and filling in the short form, while those who join the discussion on the day can post questions using #askdrbill.

“Bill Price is a hugely experienced construction and DIY expert and we’re excited to have him take part in this Q&A,” said Mike Lomax, marketing communications manager for cement at Lafarge Tarmac.

“We know that lots of people gear up for DIY projects around bank holiday weekends and this is a great opportunity to get tips and advice from someone really in the know.”

Dr Price himself added: “I’d invite any and all DIYers to take part, no matter how straightforward or complicated the DIY question. Almost half of us give up and don’t see DIY tasks through to the end, so hopefully I’ll be able to help people finish what they’ve started!

“While I won’t be there in person to help lay the patio or build a BBQ, I’ll help from afar by providing some advice.”
