If you are considering a home improvement project, it’s important to know what jobs you can do
yourself and which ones should be left to the pros. A good rule of thumb is that If the job
requires a permit, it more than likely needs a professional. Here are some examples:
* Electric Work– There are serious risks involved with performing electrical repairs… so consider hiring a pro.
* Plumbing– While you might be able to easily repair a faucet or unplug a drain yourself, major repairs require a licensed plumber.
* Heating & Air Conditioning– When it comes to heating and air conditioning, if you want to keep your warranties valid, always use a licensed professional for any repairs.
* Tree Trimming– Trimming small trees is fine, but when it comes to removing a tall tree… hire a professional.
If you plan on making any structural changes to your home like moving a load bearing wall, or
adding a porch or deck, always consult a professional.
