Tacoma, WA, March 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Everyone is watching the pennies plus the dollars these days. As a result, homeowners are taking on some DIY projects which are beyond the scope of most home owners. Better Choice Construction Corporation, LLC says homeowners should carefully look at the pros and cons of more advanced DIY home repair projects.
“I can appreciate the homeowner’s frustration taking care of home repairs himself. And his frustration and disappointment when he has to call in a General Contractor to not only take over the project but sometimes, to correct the homeowner’s mistakes,” said Johnny Garcia, Better Choice Construction Supervisor.
“Some DIY projects are fine; like fixing the leaky faucet or repairing the backyard fence. But some of the larger projects are more difficult than most people’s understanding of their house structure. Some of the equipment is more complex than what our Dads had to repair.”
Better Choice Construction recommends seeking professional advice from a general contractor before you start the project. Most contractors will come to your home, give a project evaluation and a free estimate. “Many times we will see some basic structural or supporting work that needs to be taken care of first. No sense is putting new construction on an area that already has some rotting wood and things like that,” said Johnny Garcia. “Better to find this out before you start your work. It costs more for labor and sometimes material if I have to have the work crews tear out what the homeowner has already done. We salvage what we can in those situations.”
“I’ve also seen homeowner make a mistake that causes more damage and cost than the original repair would have been. That always makes the job more complicated. Tearing something down before you get to start on the initial problem is not great for anyone.”
Better Choice Construction recommends getting quotes from general contractors. Each should provide a written bid for labor and materials. Without asking, they should all offer to provide copies of their licenses, liability insurance and surety bond at the time of their job inspection and quote.
