To DIY or Not to DIY? 4 Home Projects To Call in the Pros

DIY home improvements can seem like a good idea. TV shows and YouTube videos make it look easy to do whatever you need to your home. But how do you know when to Do-it-yourself and when to call in the pros? Here are four home projects you should skip the DIY and call in a professional:

Plumbing. Changing out faucets and showerheads or hooking up your washing machine may be a job that many homeowners can accomplish on their own. However, for adding or moving plumbing, or expanding/modifying your home’s water supply or hot water system, you will want to call a professional. Without the knowledge and experience, these more complex jobs could create a flood or leak that cause damage to your home. A licensed plumber will know how to set your plumbing up safely and without leaks.

Electrical. Electrical work can seem relatively simple. You may replace fixtures around your home if you are familiar with how to do so. Any other complex jobs, including extending existing circuits, adding new ones, or wiring electrical boxes should be done by a trained professional. If you do work on your own and are untrained, you can risk electrical shock or even starting a house fire.

Trees. Cutting down the small tree in your front yard may not seem like a difficult job. But the larger the tree, the more risk is involved. Even with a chainsaw, you should not be removing any trees that are larger than 4” in diameter and over 20’. When you attempt to remove trees that are larger, you risk it falling on your house, car, or even another person.

Removing Walls. An open layout concept is popular for main living spaces, but you shouldn’t go around knocking down walls with a sledgehammer. For one, removing any walls will typically require a permit. To obtain a permit, you’ll need an engineer to review which wall you wish to remove, and if it is load bearing, how to brace the ceiling or roof properly support the house. If you remove a wall without the pros, you could end up having a collapsed roof.

The next important question: How do you find the right professional for the job? HUNT Real Estate now offers The HUNT Homeowner’s Club. The HUNT Homeowners Club offers you direct access to all of our HUNT-approved vendors and is a complete resource for all of your moving and homeownership needs.
