I’m all for independence, y’all. But I refuse to waste another Saturday trying to install a light. Here are projects that should be left to the pros. I love doing stuff around the house, y’all. I think it’s because I’m a busybody and I don’t like sitting around. Still, as ambitious as I am, there are some things that I refuse to do on my own. Here are some home projects you shouldn’t do yourself unless you want things to come out funky.
Installing Window Well Covers
There are so many reasons you shouldn’t DIY window well covers. For starters, it’s incredibly unsafe. Manufactured window well covers are meant to withstand the elements. If you put on a makeshift covering, you could end up falling through. You need to ensure things get installed properly. What if the kiddos are running around and they fall through the hole? Nobody wants that on their conscience.
I don’t know about y’all, but I don’t want to get electrocuted any time soon. Any time I have an electrical problem, I call a professional. These workers are trained, and I certainly am not. I panic even when I have to flip a switch on the circuit breaker. That’s why you need a trained eye who knows what they’re doing.
Taking Down Walls
Y’all may even find electrical problems if you try taking down walls. Consequently, this is another home project you shouldn’t do on your own. If electrocution wasn’t scary enough, here are some more convincing reasons to call a pro:
- There could be hazardous mold or asbestos in the walls that could harm your health.
- The walls may be load-bearing, meaning something could fall down if you remove it.
- There could be structural posts that need to be moved.
I know everyone’s bored out of their minds this year. But this doesn’t mean you should take on dangerous household projects. Instead, throw on a mask when the pros come in so they can get to work on your humble abode.
