5 Remodeling Jobs That Should Always Be Left to
The Pros

  • Maybe its to save money. Maybe its to save
    time. Maybe its to savour the pride of
    completing a job yourself. Whatever the reason,
    many people like to DIY. But sometimes what saves
    you money leaves you wanting for quality.
    Sometimes what saves you time, in the beginning,
    ends up causing you a lot more time down the
    road. Sometimes that pride turns to
    disappointment when a DIY accomplishment turns
    into a DIY nightmare. You dont want to end up
    spending more time and money fixing your mistakes
    than you were saving in the first place. Some DIY
    should be left to the professionals. Here are our
    most important top 5 definitely
    dont-do-it-yourself jobs.

  • 1. MAJOR STRUCTURAL CHANGES
  • Consulting a professional contractor will ensure
    your job is completed in the right way and
    determine any permits or laws that are associated
    with your renovations. Knocking down walls isnt
    a simple task behind those walls could be
    electrical wiring, plumbing or gas pipes that
    could cause huge (and expensive) problems if
    theyre damaged or tampered with. You dont want
    to knock down a load-bearing wall and the next
    thing you know the ceiling is sagging and youre
    facing huge repair costs. Rather than take an
    unnecessary risk, consult a professional first.

  • 2. ASBESTOS REMOVAL
  • This is a common renovation hazard in older
    homes. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral
    and has been used for years in older homes and
    businesses for its insulating properties. Its
    resistant to heat and electricity and is a good
    sound insulator. But asbestos is also toxic, and
    while its possible to perform DIY asbestos
    removal, its not recommended. Aside from the
    inherent dangers of toxicity, there are laws that
    govern the removal of asbestos because it can
    pose a danger to others in close proximity (like
    your neighbours). Dont gamble with your health
    or risk the wrath of the law. Hire a professional.

  • 3. ELECTRICAL WORK
  • Its one thing to flip a fuse switch on or off,
    but its quite another to attempt to repair
    faulty wiring or any other electrical issues
    without professional help. Working with
    electrical wires can be deadly and being aware of
    the proper precautions and knowledge is crucial.
    Unless youre an electrician dont attempt
    electrical rewiring. Also, many people attempt
    light fixture installation but do so before they
    find out whats behind the wall theyre drilling
    holes into. Big mistake.

  • 4. TREE REMOVAL
  • Cutting down trees should definitely be left to
    the professionals. Period. Attempting to do this
    yourself not only risks the safety of your house
    but the safety of your person. Tree removal
    requires climbing, heights, and working with
    dangerous tools. Saving money means nothing if
    the result is losing a limb. Not convinced yet?
    Go on YouTube and type in tree removal gone
    wrong and youll see what were talking about.

  • 5. ANYTHING INVOLVING GAS
  • Keep hands off with anything to do with gas.
    Installing a new stove, hot water heater or dryer
    may seem straightforward, but natural gas can be
    lethal, so always play it safe. Messing around
    with gas risks a potential explosion or carbon
    monoxide poisoning.

8
  • Knowing when to do it yourself and when to hire a
    professional contractor is something many
    homeowners learn by trial and error. Dont learn
    the hard way know your skills and choose your
    battles. Contact trained and certified
    professionals who are capable and equipped to
    handle these complex and hazardous jobs. Never
    attempt a job that puts your time, money, and,
    most importantly, your personal safety, at risk.
