Why NOT to DIY your Kitchen Remodel
July 2, 2018 Kitchen Remodeling
Considering the do-it-yourself approach for your kitchen remodel? We want you to weigh out your options. We aren’t here to tell you that you can’t do it; we just know from experience what it takes!
Let’s face it, you’re a rare person if you have all the skills and tools to be a carpenter, electrician, plumber, flooring/tile installer, and finish carpenter. You will also need the skills of a general contractor to plan and schedule all the steps of a kitchen installation.
Remember that the kitchen is the most complex room in your home to remodel. If you’re considering DIY know that it could save you money but will more than likely add time. But if you make a costly mistake, you could end up spending more money that you would through a professional.
If you’re leaning towards DIY kitchen remodel, ask yourself these questions:
- Do you like research projects?
- Do you have the time and what is your time worth?
- Do you have the installation skills?
- Do you have the tools to complete your kitchen remodel?
- Do you enjoy physical labor?
- Do you have the patience to complete a kitchen remodel?
- Do you have the planning skills to get on track?
If you’re leaning towards hiring a professional, here’s what you need to consider:
- Do you trust the company?
- Do they have good reviews?
- Do they have knowledge and experience?
- Are they certified, licensed, bonded and insured?
