Thinking of DIY Renovation? Why it Makes More Sense to Hire a Professional

Nov 10, 2014

DIY home renovations are big in Perth and across Australia. One look at cable TV ratings will confirm the popularity of DIY home renovations. For someone who is handy with tools, we think minor renovations are OK, but do you really want to go through the hassle of performing a major renovation on your home or an investment property?

Here are some reasons why we think you should leave it to the professionals.

Quality Workmanship

A talented amateur is essentially just that: a talented amateur. If you don’t do renovations five days a week, 40-50 weeks a year, you are going to have to be at the very top of your game to get the same results as someone who does. If you work another job and are trying to do renovations part-time, the fatigue factor also kicks in.

Professionals not only have experience, but they have the right tools for every job. They don’t have to “make do” with less because they have the best equipment for every situation. It helps them work faster and produce better results. One bad mistake can cost you thousands of dollars—do you really want to take that risk?

Less Hassle

Let’s face it: there is a lot of work and hassle involved in DIY renovations. You have to know what permits you need, what renovations are allowed and what specifications apply. You have to figure out what materials you need and what tools you need. Then, there is the time factor.

Professional renovators send in a professional crew and complete your renovations in much less time than it would take you. This causes minimal disruption to your lifestyle. Compare it to working all weekend for months until you are finished and having to live around your unfinished work.
