To DIY or Hire a Pro?
We've all been there. A household repair or improvement is required, and we want to make an informed decision regarding the time, money, tools, experience, danger and inconvenience that will be involved to help us determine its DIY-ability. Deciding whether to DIY is a highly personal, complex decision based on the timing and scope of the project, your financial situation and how much time, money, knowledge and desire you have to do it yourself. You never save by needing to pay a professional to correct your mistakes and clean up your messes. There are several websites you might find useful in helping you decide. MoneyTalksNews, DIY Do It Yourself or Not and lifehacker.com all offer good guidelines for your consideration.
