There is the age-old question “Should I fix all the repairs in my home myself? Or, should I call the pros?”

Let’s start by making a proper to-do list: Make headings that say Plumbing Repairs, Drywall Repairs, Painting touch-ups, Carpentry repairs, etc. Then go through your house and start adding the items you need fixed under the appropriate heading.

After the list is complete, you have a full understanding of how big your project really is. Be honest with yourself, is it really worth your time to take on most of these tasks? Sure, you can probably complete 30% of them with your knowledge. The rest will need some searches on YouTube, along with a bit of trial and error.

Most likely, you would make more money spending time at work rather than focusing your time on this list. If you’re worried that hiring specialists for each one of these trades will be expensive, then you’re right. The minimum charge for each trade combined would cost a small fortune.
