On our last post we ended with a little subject that is very important and should be talked about in more detail (click here if you missed it). If you are in the process of selling your home, or any home owner for the matter, it is very important that you don’t try to take on any tasks that might be a little over your capabilities. We can’t tell you how many people we have seen over the years begin a home renovation project and within a week there has been more damage than when they began.
When in Doubt, Call
Maybe there are some ladies out there reading this who have found themselves stuck with a stubborn and confident husband, believing they are able to build a house from scratch with his bare hands.
While there very well may be a lot out there who are more than capable of doing so, more often than not there will be a home inspection agency who would be able to write a book on missed steps or things that are not up to code, eventually costing you more money than you anticipated.
In order to avoid these situations, you should always call and get a second opinion from a licensed contractor who specializes in the work that you are trying to do. The majority of them are willing to come and give you a free quote and inspection on the job so there really is nothing to lose.
