In the age of HGTV and Pinterest, it’s easy to get inspired to touch up your home. From paint and trim to knocking out walls and adding built-ins, there’s always a home improvement project to be tackled.

Some of these projects are well worth a dive into the world of DIY. At other times, you would be wise to trust your home improvement project to a licensed kitchen and bath remodeler.

Here are five questions to ask yourself to help you decide:

  1. Am I equipped to accomplish this project safely?

    Every home improvement project comes with a risk. Sometimes that means you risk not liking the color you spent six hours painting on your living room wall. Other times that means you risk the health and safety of yourself and your living space. A licensed remodeler has years of experience working with power tools and complex projects. They’ll know the best techniques to complete your project safely—no back injuries or smashed fingers necessary.

  2. Am I working with water or electricity?

    Licensed plumbers and electricians—a crucial part of any kitchen and bath remodel team—are specially trained and skilled to handle your home’s essential functions. With years of experience, they can tackle your project in less time and with less mess. And, best of all, you can sleep well knowing that your project was done right the first time.

  3. Does it require a permit?

    Some projects require a step beyond inspiration and execution. A licensed kitchen and bath remodeler knows when local regulations require you to get a permit, and they can help you navigate the process. They’ll help you avoid fines and make sure your home is safe for years to come.

  4. Do I have the time necessary to complete the project well?

    Every project is a commitment. It takes time and energy to evaluate the project needs, collect supplies and properly carry out the tasks at hand. An experienced remodeler has completed hundreds of similar projects in their career, so you can trust them to finish the work quickly and efficiently. Meanwhile, you’ll be free to engage in activities you enjoy.

  5. Will I need additional help?

    Many kitchen and bath remodel projects require multiple sets of hands. Things like replacing countertops, installing cabinets, or installing new appliances demand extra attention. A licensed kitchen and bath remodeling team knows exactly how to work together in order to get the job done smoothly.
