With people staying in their homes longer and longer, nearly everyone will need to do a home remodel at some point. Knowing how expensive it is to remodel a home, many homeowners opt to do much of the work themselves. With this growing interest in DIY, homeowners are looking for good practical advice when performing renovations.
The video offers many practical common sense tips for the DIYer. The first is to place all hardware in a bag after removal. Screws, knobs, and hinges often need to be removed during the remodeling process. By placing these in a bag you can be sure they will not be lost or, maybe even more importantly, stepped on. More than that it saves a tremendous amount of time when you are ready to put things back together.
The best advice to give a DIYer is to recognize when they are over their head. Some things like painting, installation of baseboards, or even resurfacing or replacing cabinets and countertops can often be done by even the most inexperienced homeowner. However, things like plumbing and electrical work can incredibly difficult. Knowing when to call in a professional can save not just time, but frustration and money in the long run.
