When to hire a licensed contractor?

When you want to make some changes or repairs to your home, there’s a time for DIY and a time to hire a licensed contractor. In some instances, you may be able to get the work done on your own. However, you need to know when it’s time to seek professional assistance for your project.

You’re in over your head

There may be instances when you start to get going with a project and realize that you don’t have the expertise. Rather than taking the chance at DIY gone wrong, it’s best to call in a licensed contractor who can assist you. They will know how to overcome problems that you have faced, determine if a permit needs to be pulled, and will have the equipment needed to get the job done right.

At HTP Builders, we know what needs to be done. Let us identify what has gone wrong and what needs to be done to fix it. Our contractors are experienced with a wide array of home repairs. We can be your handyman and take construction to the next level. Plus, you can count on us to provide you with upfront costs as well as quality control inspections throughout the entire project.

When to hire a licensed contractor

Remodels are extensive

There’s nothing wrong with admitting that you have a big project ahead of you. Whether you have decided you want to remodel your kitchen or rip down a wall in order to create a more open space in your living room, professionals should be called in.

A licensed contractor will be able to establish a complete plan for remodeling. This includes identifying if any walls are weight-bearing and what components need to be incorporated into the remodel. There may be the need to work with plumbing, electrical, drywall, and more. It’s not uncommon for a contractor to call in subcontractors. This will ensure that the work gets done faster rather than depending on one person to do it all.

One of the main reasons to have a plan is to ensure that the proposed plan makes sense. DIY-ers tend to skip this step because they think that the vision in their head makes sense. If you don’t get the functionality that you want out of the space, you will be disappointed. You need to work with a designer and a contractor. This will ensure that you get a design that you love. Plus, it needs to be executed sufficiently based on the budget that you have and the time frame that you have allotted.

You’ve already made mistakes

You’re rewiring a socket and suddenly you see smoke or you feel a spark. You’re replacing a pipe and there’s more water than there should be. If you have made some kind of mistake, own it. Realize that you don’t know what you’re doing or that you don’t have the time to get the job done correctly. If you continue to make mistakes, it could take longer to make the repairs and complete the project. It may also cost you more, which is all the more reason to ask for the help of a licensed contractor.
