DIY vs Hiring a Contractor

DIY vs hiring a contractor can seem like an easy answer.  Either you are handy or not, right?  Well, sometimes you can be very handy but the project might be out of your league in other manners.

Can I remodel my own bathroom?

It can’t be that hard, right? Well here’s a few questions, if you can answer yes to all of them, then you might be well on your way to your bathroom remodel.

Specialized Trade Knowledge & Tools Needed

First, do you have specialized knowledge in:

  • plumbing
  • electrical
  • carpentry
  • painting
  • tile, and
  • drywall

Second, do you have all the specialized tools to do the work or you may have to rent some.

Time & Patience Needed

Three would be time, how much time can you apply to the job.  Fourth, how much patience do you have enough patience when things aren’t necessarily going your way.


Five, budget. Did you budget accordingly for the thing that you weren’t expecting that might go wrong on your budget.

If you answered yes to any of these then you might be well on your way to doing your own project. If you didn’t answer yes to all of these, then you might want to hire a professional. Please send us in your Burning Questions, and I’ll put them out.
