Do-It-Yourself or Not

 

If you are handy, you can probably do home improvements or repairs yourself, but should you?  The answer, of course, depends on many factors.  To avoid a botched job, consider these issues before tackling a good-sized or challenging project:

 

  • Check you local building codes and ordinances.  Some or part of your project may require the work to be done by a licensed professional.
  • Some jobs require special tools, some of which can be rented; but a professional already owns them and knows how to use them.  He does not have to spend time learning, as you would.  What mistakes might take place during that leaning process?
  • It can take a lot of study and practice to become comfortable working with some materials.  Do you have the time that is required to complete the project and would you want to spend it that way?
  • What is your timeframe for the project to be done?  If you can only work on weekends, how long are you and your family willing to live in “under construction”?

 

The decision to do it yourself versus hire a professional does not have to be all or nothing.  Talk to a contractor about your project.  Get the contractor’s price to do everything, plus discuss with the contractor the option of you performing a portion of the work and then compare.  Consider a contractor that will work with you as well as working for you. Remember that the contractor does this for a living and his expertise may be worthwhile to you.
