Here at Lifehack, we are big proponents of the do it yourself ethos and the rewarding feeling you get when you save money by completing a home improvement project on your own. Of course, not everything should be approached in this manner. This guide to DDIY suggests when it’s better you call someone else in and don’t do it yourself.

This is particularly true for those of us who might not be good at handiwork in general or for those projects that seem way beyond our own skill range. Remember, if you do it yourself and then have to hire a professional to fix your work, then you would have saved a lot of money and time if you just called someone in at the get go. Before you approach any DIY project always calculate the money, time and skill level it will take to complete and then decide if it is really something you should tackle on your own.
