When to Hire a Contractor
How do you know if your home improvement project is a do-it-yourself or if you need to hire a pro? If your project involves running new electrical or gas lines you should hire a licensed electrician or plumber. A pro knows the right tools for the job and knows when local codes apply. Staying current with building and safety codes is very important. If you tackle an electric project on your own, it may not be covered by your insurance if something goes wrong. It’s a good rule of thumb to do your homework. Consult a professional if the job seems to be complicated or out of your comfort zone.
