About Us

Welcome to Toolbox Advice!

We created Toolbox Advice to help provide the DIYer and professional contractor with the knowledge and complete how-to instructions to improve homes, yards, vehicles and more.

We are here to help those who are looking for only the best how-to’s and DIY resources online. There is a lot out there and it can be tough to find all the right information you need to make that fix or add that next tool to your toolbox.

Our guides, how-to’s, product reviews and editorial pieces seek to help inform and educate you. We take a look at a wide range of projects, topics, and tools so you can trust we will have an article for you.

Our team of more than 5 expert writers have extensive backgrounds and expertise in their topics, including landscapers, professional contractors, roofers, painters and more.

How our website makes money

What this means is that if we review a product and provide a link for it within the article to Amazon, we will receive a small commission if you ultimately go on to purchase the product. You can find out more about this program with a quick search.
