What is a good project to do yourself and when should you call a professional? If you have a room of your home that is literally falling apart, a new coat of paint may not be all that you need to resolve the issue! On the same note, new flooring wont fix this either! Once you really start to dig in to a project you may find stuff that is outside of the realm of what you can safely handle. Sometimes it may not be better to do that plumbing repair yourself, and have to hire a professional to repair what you have done! We always recommend that unless you are trained in plumbing or electrical you should leave that to the professionals. Many home repairs can be found on YouTube and have an instructional video. Watch the video and see if the project is something that you can handle. If there is any doubt or hesitation, call a professional. We hope that these words of warning help with your future projects!
