Do-It-Yourself Home Repairs – Be Careful
How do I put this in the simplest terms to make most do-it-yourself handyman are homeowners understand that there are some things that their not going to be able to tackle by themselves. I don’t advise anyone to mess around with electrical, plumbing, heating or structural framing, if they don’t have any idea what they are working with.
There are however some do-it-yourself home repairs that you can do on your own and if you have any problems, you can always consult with a contractor or even hire at contractor to perform the difficult tasks that you can’t perform on your own, or seriously just don’t have any idea how to make the repair.
One of the most important things that I can tell a do-it-yourself home repair man is that electricity is dangerous. Plumbing pipes that leak water can do more damage than anything else I can think of to a home, besides a roof leak. Heating and air-conditioning repairs can also be difficult and some air conditioning chemicals and gases are more dangerous than electricity.
Now when it comes to structural framing, if you don’t know what you are doing, this could be the most dangerous out of any home repairs and I don’t suggest the amateur home repair man, tackle any structural repair projects. I’m not talking about electric shocks or dangerous air conditioning gases, I’m talking about removing a structural component and having a large section of the home collapse.
I’m writing this to warn people and give them a heads up. I am the person they call after the damage has been done. The do-it-yourself home repair man tried to fix it himself, spent good money and now has to pay double, because the damage they have done is more than the original damage to the home. I’m just asking you to think twice, before tackling some projects and nothing else.
