5 Reasons You Shouldn’t DIY Everything At Your Home

You may have seen the DIY or home improvement shows on tv and thought to yourself I can do that, it looks so easy. Well I am here to say not everything online is as easy as it looks. For many DIY applications hiring a trusted contractor will save you money and time.

1.) It Is Never As Easy As It Looks

Going into a “simple” project may not always be as simple or safe as just hiring the right guy for the job. From a personal experience building a treehouse when I was younger and inspired from the popular TV show Treehouse Masters I understood this very good. Well the treehouse turned out great for a 13 year old, it didn’t stand the time of Mother Nature. It was much harder than I could have every imagined, it looked so easy on tv.      There will always be problems you run into and parts of the job you just can’t get right. That’s why I put this at the top spot because it is very frustrating when you spend so much time and money into something you wish you have have just hired out to be done right.

2.) Is Hiring A Contractor Cheaper And More Time Efficient

A lot of people know hiring the guy for the job will save you time. What most people don’t understand is hiring a contractor will save you money as well. The old saying “time is money” is prefect in these situations with the price of materials and time you put into your DIY projects it’s cheaper to just hire it out. Contractors build trust with suppliers allowing them to get special rates and faster delivery’s on materials for your home improvements. They will have every tool and get the job done correctly the first time.

3.) A Licensed Contractor Understands Time Is Valuable.

A contractor spends 100% of their time on your projects. Whereas you might only be able to put 30% of your time into thinking and working on it. The right contractor with the right team can get quality work done fast and efficient. Which is another reason it is better to hire a contractor.

4.) A Contractor Has All The Tools Necessary For Any Job Or Problem In The Way.

I bet you have been in a situation before where you didn’t have the right tool for the job. That feeling will never happen when you hire the job out. Contractors have job trailer filled with tools to make sure no project can go sideways. I know personally the feeling of not having the correct tool and it sucks. Then you find yourself at the big box stores spending hundreds of dollars on something you may only use once. No one wants to go through that.

5.) A Contractor Will Get It Done Right The First Time

You never want to be in a spot where you spend all this money and time then have to hire a contractor at the end of the day because something went sideways. Contractors understand things aren’t always as easy as it looks and they are prepared for that. Don’t put yourself in a bad situation and just hire a trusted contractor.


Hiring a contractor is never a bad option. They will save you a tremendous amount of time and money. No more waiting for special materials, having to running back and forth to the store for unseeable problems or materials and of course your physical and mental time on the project. Hiring a trusted contractor is the way to go if you don’t want the extra stress and time restraints in your life.
