Should I Attempt This Project on My Own?

I often have customers come to me asking if they should attempt to do a project on their own. My answer is: it depends. Does your project require engineering? Does it require special tools or knowledge? Will it require a building permit? And does that building permit require a contractor? There are questions one needs to ask themselves before getting started. Yes, there are simple, do-it-yourself projects (deck resurfacing, painting, etc.) that can be easily accomplished on your own. But there are also those that may need an expert; make sure you think every step of your project through before proceeding.
