When to DIY (and When to Bring in a Contractor)

So, you’ve recently decided on a brand-new home improvement project. As you start to plan, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is simple—will you take care of the job yourself, or would it be better to hire a contractor? Depending on the type of project and your skill level, the right answer to this question can vary. You’ll first need to consider the size of the project—it may be possible to paint a wall by yourself, but it’s much more difficult to tear down a wall without professional help. You should also examine your personal skillset—if a project has a big structural impact, you probably shouldn’t handle it yourself without the proper experience.
