These days, there’s a DIY tutorial online or a YouTube video for any project you want to do in your home. DIY projects are a great way to save money and have a bit of satisfaction in the work you’ve put into your home. However, there are some jobs, due to safety or legal concerns, that are better left to the professionals with proper training.
It should go without saying that larger plumbing jobs, such as installing water heaters, should be left to professionals. But even some smaller can lead to disaster if done improperly. It can lead to leaks or flooding in your home, and water damage can be costly.
Anything that involves running new cables, or working with electrical circuits should be left to a licensed professional. You could possibly cause shock, electrocution, or fires to yourself or in your home. Additionally, for some electrical work, permits are required to be able to legally do the work according to local codes. Professionals know when and how to get those licences and permits to do the work.
The obvious reason to leave roofing to the professionals is the safety risk. Being on the roof is a risk of injury while performing the task. Professionals have the experience and the equipment to do the job correctly while also being safe on the job. They also have teams that are able to complete the job in a much shorter time-frame than an amateur, most likely working alone.
Any sort of major structural work should definitely be left to the professionals. Mistakes or lack of experience when making structural changes, can damage the integrity of the entire house. Even if no ceilings collapse on you, it can be a big issue when it’s time to sell the house. Professionals have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to know what walls are load bearing and the safest way to support the weight and transfer the load.
In the same way that roofing is dangerous from being up on the roof, gutter cleaning can be dangerous for homeowners, especially when there are second story gutters to consider. Professionals have the knowledge and manpower to get to those high places much more safely and efficiently. They can also notice when there are issues with your gutter system and inform you of any repairs that you may need.
