As an experienced handyman business with more hundreds of projects under our belt, you can take our word for it when we say that anytime you start a “Do-It-Yourself” home improvement project, you are taking a huge risk.
The risk is that the project will quickly become too big, too complicated, or you will run into issues that are beyond your abilities. And if that happens once you have your kitchen, bathroom, or another critical area of your home halfway ripped apart, it’s going to cause major issues with your everyday life.
The “big box” home improvement chains want you to think that no project is too big for the homeowner. But the truth is that a lot of our business comes from people who have gotten in too far over their heads and need to be bailed out by a professional.
Watch Out for “Worms”
Here’s the thing: No matter how straightforward a home improvement project seems, there inevitably are going to be “worms”, as in “opening a can of worms”. These are unanticipated complications that can throw even the most experienced amateur off his or her game.
Perhaps it’s an electrical or plumbing problem. Or maybe you tore down a wall to find something unexpected behind it such as a structural problem, water damage, or mold. It could simply be that you realize halfway through that you don’t have the proper tools for the job.
This isn’t meant to cast aspersions on your intentions or even your abilities. It’s simply an acknowledgment that most big renovation projects or upgrades are often outside of the skill set of the typical inexperienced homeowner. Fortunately, you have Mr. Kitchen in your corner.
