Is a project too much for you to handle? Do you need the services of a professional? The first thing a true “do it yourselfer” should admit is that the project will take 2 to 3 times the amount of time that you estimated, and additionally, it will cost double the money you had anticipated. If you identify your limts with each of these items, the entire project will go much smoother.
Knowing the limit of your ability will also allow you to concentrate on finding the best contractor for your situation. A professional builder or remodeler will take the time to listen to your concerns, create a workable plan for everyone, and follow through as promised. Additionally, the professional will see that the entire project is a code-compliant adventure that will serve you for many years to come.
Do-overs are expensive, stressful, and potentially liable. Take the time, know your limits, and select a licensed professional that reduces the hangover of the do-over!
