Do you enjoy DIY (do it yourself) remodeling? Maybe you’ve declared yourself a DYI master, and along with you buddy YouTube, you’ve been able to pull off many projects just fine. It’s never too late to get a few tips on how to avoid some common DIY remodeling mistakes from your friends at Smart Way Insurance Agency in Sandy, UT.
Mistakes to Avoid
- When remodeling a small space, avoid trapping something large in the room, such as a refrigerator. Measure repeatedly and imagine every possible scenario before changing the area’s layout.
- For some items, it will not pay to go with the cheapest. For example, installing an island range hood is no easy feat, and removing it a year later because you found an amazing deal will not save on cost.
- When doing specialty work, there is no shame in consulting with a specialist before you start the work. For example, electrical work can be tricky, especially when you want something fancy like dimmer switches at both entrances of a room. You don’t want to end up with flickering lights that don’t dim.
- Avoid tackling DIY projects on a holiday. It may seem like the perfect time, but if things go wrong, you have no one to turn to because they are all on holiday. Imagine a DIY plumbing project that goes south over the long Thanksgiving weekend. It’s best to save some projects when a pro you trust is around to help.
