We genuinely appreciate the Do It Yourself ethic that many homeowners feel comfortable with. Clearly there are smaller projects around the house that with a little education, effort and time, you can address over a weekend. As spelled out within this recent article on The Spruce, money is frequently the motivating factor for some people to roll up their sleeves and pick up a sledgehammer, but these stories frequently miss an important financial point: home resale.
By using your limited weekend time, efforts and sweat, completing that DIY project yourself before anyone really needs to use the bathroom can be rewarding. You'll hope and pray that there are no surprises along the way - like puncturing a water line with a screw or discovering rotted sub-flooring below your tub. But how do you respond in the future when a potential home buyer asks, "Did you have this bathroom professionally remodeled or did you do it yourself?"
While it's easy for any weekend warrior worth her salt to proudly proclaim, "I did it all myself", how does someone considering spending hundreds of thousands of dollars for your home going to feel about YOUR skills versus those of reputable, local companies who perform bathroom remodeling projects each and every day? Keep these key questions in mind next time to you weigh the pros and cons of your bathroom remodeling project. And keep Diamond Bath of Crystal Lake in mind, just in case!
