Over the years, DIYing (Do-It-Yourself) has become popular among homeowners. In fact, according to Cision PR Newswire, 70% of American homeowners prefer DIY home improvements. 14% even responded that they want to focus on DIYing their bathrooms, mainly because accomplishing something by one’s self (or with a little help from family and friends) is fulfilling.
Many homeowners also think that DIYing is the best way to save, which is completely explicable. No more professional fees to pay, right? However, according to CBY tools, 49% of UK homeowners who feel confident in DIYing aren’t successful in doing such. 42% have injured themselves while 7% have injured someone else while DIYing. Therefore, resulting in more expenses—not to mention the danger it poses.
Moreover, a full bathroom remodel only takes around twenty-three days to finish given that the workers are always on-time and present and that the delivery of materials isn’t delayed. This only means that it will probably take longer if you will DIY. If pros who have been remodeling bathrooms for decades take almost a month, what more if it’s a first-timer? No offense meant.
If you only have one bathroom at home, it is crucial to have it done as early as possible because you probably don’t consider using your neighbor’s bathroom. Aside from the fact that it’s awkward, it will also mean that you’re willing to do the same for them in the future.
Another reason why you should leave it to the pros is that electrical and plumbing tasks require permits. Although regulations vary in different locations, you will be penalized if you will not prepare a permit. Whereas hiring a bathroom contractor won’t only help you comply with the local laws, you will also be saved from the hassle of preparing the necessary paperwork.
Having that said, here are the key takeaways of the infographic from Luxury Commercial Bath which details the reasons why you should hire a bathroom contractor for your remodeling project:
