Professional vs. DIY
Whenever a homeowner is doing any sort of remodeling or renovations around the house, there is one question that comes to mind, “Should I do it myself, or get a professional?” For some, tackling a home project is a piece of cake, but for others, it may be a nightmare. So, it is best to weigh the pros and cons of both scenarios.
When you hire a professional for any job, there is an automatic markup on material and labor fee. Many contractors charge three times the cost of the material to cover most of their expenses. In this case, if you are a handy person it may be cheaper to tackle the project on your own – assuming you know what you are doing.
If you do a project yourself it will take away from your time; time you can be using to take on other pressing issues. By hiring a professional, you have the luxury of time – killing two (or more) birds with one stone. So in this case, using a professional is your best bet.
Best of Both Worlds
Of course, you can always buy the materials yourself (make sure to contact a contractor for recommendations as to what to buy) and have a professional do the complicated work, while you put on the finishing touches. This way you can save money and still have a quality project.
