In the age of Pinterest, YouTube, and Wikipedia, you can learn how to do just about anything online. Whether it’s building your own bookshelf or installing a new carpet, you’re bound to come across some DIY video on the Internet explaining how to get it done.
But there’s a big difference between a small home-improvement project and a major renovation. In fact, we would argue that most DIY home remodeling projects, such as renovating your kitchen or bathroom, are a bad idea.
Need convincing? Here are just a few reasons you should definitely go pro for your next home remodeling project:
Pros are covered.
Imagine that in the process of completing your DIY home remodeling project, something goes wrong and you accidentally damage your property or a neighbor’s. Do you have the proper insurance to cover the damage and pay for a potential legal dispute? A professional home remodeler would! We ensure that in the unlikely event that something goes awry, we’re fully prepared and covered. Most amateurs can’t say the same.
Pros keep it legal.
Anyone can look up DIY bathroom remodeling instructions on Google, but NOT everyone knows the ins and outs of the legal and licensing issues that go along with such a project. When you work with a professional home remodeler like V.C.G., you can trust that the legal stuff is upheld to the letter! Believe us, when it comes to things like this, you’re better safe than sorry.
Pros give you an accurate price.
An amateur home remodeler might think they know how much a project is going to cost, only to discover down the road — after it’s too late to turn back — that everything is way more expensive than they’d believed. Home remodeling experts actually know how much things cost, and can give you an accurate estimate from the start so you’re never left scrambling by unexpected expenses.
Pros give you a contract.
We’re sure your husband (or wife) is wonderful, but can you really trust them to finish the job? They might get off to a good start, but then get busy, or discouraged, or just not feel like doing it anymore. With a professional home remodeler, you get a contract — which means you KNOW every detail of your job will be completed.
Pros have expertise and experience.
Even if the DIY home remodeler does pay attention to things like licensing and insurance, it’s unlikely they have a proven track record for doing excellent work. With home remodeling professionals like V.C.G., you can trust that we’ve done similar jobs time and time again, and are knowledgeable in the best methods, tools, and products. Amazing results come from professionals who’ve mastered their craft over many years of training and experience!
