About Us

Howells DIY was founded in 1981, making us one of the best-established DIY stores serving residents of the Wirral and Liverpool. Our shop in Rake Lane, Wallasey is a landmark in the town, well-regarded by domestic and trade customers alike as their one-stop solution for all their painting, decorating, bathroom, plumbing, tools, and hardware needs.

Experienced and Knowledgeable Staff

Our team of DIY professionals are available in-store to assist you in finding the perfect tools and materials for your home improvement projects. We have decades of experience in the trade between us and will do what we can to answer any queries you might have. We can also offer our professional advice about a range of DIY projects if you’re not quite sure where to begin.

Private Customers and Trade Clients

Howell’s DIY is recognised as the leading DIY suppliers on the Wirral. Whether you are a home DIYer, a local tradesman, or a contractor, you receive the same high standard of service at our Wallasey store. We can normally fulfil any order with what we have in stock. If you need building materials or tools that we do not have, we can order them from our suppliers to arrive the following day.

Howell’s Home Services

When the nation first went into lockdown in March 2020, we understood that not all our customers were going to be able to visit our store in person, or be able to ask friends or family over to help them with their larger DIY projects. We decided to do what we could to help, by introducing our home services. Our DIY experts helped hundreds of customers across the local area with their bathroom and kitchen installations, painting and decorating, guttering replacements, and more. The service proved so popular that we decided to continue offering it, even after restrictions started to be lifted.
