If you are a fan of DIY then you may like to take on tasks around the home yourself. Whether it be painting, hanging wallpaper, or refitting your kitchen, you may believe you are saving money by going it alone. The truth however is that apart from small kitchen jobs Bristol based, you should call in the experts. Below is a look at some of the jobs you could attempt yourself, and why you should call on Bristol Builders Network to source the experts for the rest.
Kitchen Jobs Bristol : Painting and Decorating
Painting is a simple job and admittedly one that almost everyone can do successfully. If your kitchen needs a new coat of paint, then it is quick and simple to do. But, remember that you can’t paint over walls that are thick with grease and grime. You will need to prepare the surface yourself, perhaps a job for the experts?
If you want to replace tiles, then this is not a quick job. A professional will make light work of tiling your walls and your kitchen could be finished in a day. If you want to save money, then give your professionals a helping hand by removing the old tiles, a job that most people find very satisfying.
Kitchen Jobs Bristol : Cabinetry
If you have decided on a brand new kitchen, then it’s definitely a job best left to the experts. If on the other hand you just want to replace your cabinet doors, this is something that you could do yourself. Replacing door knobs or handles is definitely a DIY job for anyone who owns a screwdriver. But when it comes to fitting new cabinets, it’s a job for the experts. Hanging cabinets that are straight is not as straightforward as it may first seem!
Once again, if you want to save some money, you could remove your old cabinets in preparation for your new kitchen. If you remove them carefully without breaking them, you may even be able to sell them online. This will save money spent paying for them to be taken to the local tip.
Kitchen Jobs Bristol : Plumbing
Plumbing is really an obvious job for the experts. For anything harder than replacing a washer in a dripping tap, allow Bristol Builders Network to source you a professional plumber. Playing around with waterworks could get very messy if you don’t know what you are doing. So, if you order a new washing machine or dishwasher, don’t scrimp and save and try to do the installation yourself.
A lot of floods in homes are caused by people who try to carry out plumbing tasks without any basic knowledge. Many even forget to turn the water off at the mains before disconnecting pipes. A dripping pipe could mean something far more serious that it first appears. A blocked sink may require a survey further down in the drainage system. Both jobs that are best left to the experts, like the majority of kitchen jobs Bristol households attempt to carry out themselves.
