All of those underappreciated DIYers can now vie for a gold medal thanks to an initiative from Polycell.
The company has opened a competition to all DIY amateurs to win a gold medal for a home project they have completed.
The idea is inspired by the London 2012 Olympic Games and aims to encourage more people to try a DIY project.
"Far from being underappreciated, British DIYers should be recognised, rewarded and celebrated,” Samantha Balloch from Polycell said.
“Hopefully the release of these unique gold medals will help to inspire the next generation of handymen (and women) to take pride in doing a proper job."
The gold medals were commissioned to jewellery designers to create.
The unique medals feature the Polycell logo and a filling knife with a gorgeous ribbon to match.
About 2.4 million British men have never done any DIY jobs and hopefully the lust for a gold medal will push them over the line.
Of those who have tried their hand at a DIY project four out of five say they feel 'underappreciated' by their partners once they have performed the job.
Yet 92 per cent of women say they find men who are good at DIY very attractive.
DIY lovers and even the amateurs can win the affection of the ladies and a gold by entering their project in the competition.
