Are you starting to feel the DIY itch? You know, that strong feeling that comes over you every spring to start “renewing” things? Before you get carried away and finally start tackling those home improvement projects on your own, consider hiring a pro to get the job done right the first time.
A recent survey of 2,000 people who attempted a DIY project found that 63% regretted at least one of their projects, and one in three had to call in a professional to fix or redo their botched work. Nearly one in five homeowners also said the DIY project cost more and took longer than anticipated.
Some of the most regretted DIY projects include: foundation repair, floor tile installations, room additions, ceiling and wall replacement, cabinet and counter installation and basement finishing. Before you bite off more than you can chew on your next home improvement project, consider hiring a professional.
Less Disruption, Completed on Time
If you’ve ever tackled any DIY project in your home, you know it always takes more time than you initially think. That weekend project quickly turns into six-month unpleasant journey that leaves you bickering with your spouse and wondering if the mess and disruption is ever going to end.
A professional contractor like Central Construction Group knows what can be achieved structurally and its in-house designer brings the design to life in a slick 3D format for easy decision-making on style and materials. A crew of qualified workers then gets the job done according to your schedule.
Less Mess, No Fuss
Ever ripped out floor tile or tried to sand it to a smooth finish? The huge amount of dust that’s generated from this kind of project, alone, can seep into every nook and cranny in your house, despite your best intentions to keep it all contained.
Avoid having to do intensive spring cleaning all summer long by hiring a pro to install floor tile, refinish hardwood floors or add that extra room you’ve always wanted. CCG always use zippered containment doors to keep our mess to a minimum throughout the construction phase, so there’s never any need to clean up after us.
Save Time, Energy and Money
On average, people in the survey hoped to save at least 60% of what they would have to pay a professional for the same work. But 17% say their DIY project cost more than anticipated. In addition, 55% said it didn’t look good, 24% said it didn’t function well and 21% said it didn’t hold up over time.
