DIY (Do-it-Yourself) has become a growing trend amongst homeowners in an effort to gain a sense of achievement and to help reduce the expense of home maintenance, repair and renovation. Depending on skill levels, there may be some tasks you can tackle around the home yourself, but when it comes to building and electrical it is essential to have qualified tradesperson, and the same too goes for plumbing jobs, whilst it may be okay if you have the tools and know how to change a tap washer, performing general plumbing jobs yourself comes with some major risks and an expensive repair bill. So when should you call in the plumber?
Calling in the plumber to fix DIY’s gone wrong or once the tell-tale problematic signs of water leaks have been left too long , you may end up dealing with a far greater bill from property damage, then without a doubt it is safe to say you should’ve called the plumber.
