Do you know when to hire a contractor?

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: RemodelRenovating

Do-it-yourself projects are a great way to put your own personal touch on your home. However, there are some projects that are perfect doit-yourself tasks and some that are too large and become overly complicated for the todo list in the end. For some design plans, the fastest and easiest way to save you time and money is to hire a contractor.

Here are three projects that you should consider using a contractor for:

1. Remodeling the structure of your home. Changing the floor plan of your home can be complicated. A licensed contractor is aware of the importance of various beams and walls to maintain structural stability. Tackling a project like this on your own could compromise your home’s structural integrity and generate more problems than solutions.

2. Adding on or building up on your property. When adding on to your property there are specific codes that have to be in place. A licensed contractor is educated in these codes and is able to assist you with a realistic plan, development and execution. Additionally, you get the peace of mind of a workmanship warranty in the event something occurs with the structure.

3. Window replacement. Replacing old windows or installing new ones requires very precise measurements. There are also specific installation requirements in order for your windows to meet performance expectations. In addition to ensuring performance expectations are met, a contractor can be sure to install them to specification in order to secure any warranty that may be attached to the product.
