Professional versus do-it-yourself
There are three main approaches to managing a home improvement project: hiring a general contractor like dh Home Designs, directly hiring specialized contractors, or doing the work oneself.
A general contractor oversees a home improvement project that involves multiple trades. A general contractor acts as project manager, providing access to the site, removing debris, coordinating work schedules, and performing some aspects of the work. A general contractor is responsible for providing all of the material, labor, equipment and services necessary for the construction of the project. The general contractor hires specialized subcontractors or trades to perform all or portions of the construction work.
Responsibilities may include applying for building permits, securing the property, providing temporary utilities on site, managing personnel on site, providing site surveying and engineering, disposing of or recycling construction waste, monitoring schedules and cash flows, and maintaining accurate records.
35% of homeowners, according to the Remodeling Sentiment Report bypass the general contractor, and hire tradesmen themselves, including plumbers, electricians and roofers. This can save money but can also be a challenge as finding quality reliable tradesmen can be a lot of work and can take a lot of time to find the right ones.
Another strategy is to “do it yourself” (DIY). Retailers, such as Home Depot and Revy, specialize in selling materials and tools for DIY home improvement. These stores host classes and carry numerous books to teach customers how to do the work themselves. DIY websites also provide information, in the form of how-to videos, articles and step-by-step instructions. The benefits of DYI are generally cost and the sacrifice of professional quality. The main challenge with DIY is that if you don’t work in the home renovation business, chances are that you will be learning through this process which opens up your project to a risk of mistakes.
