Top 5 home repairs you should never do yourself
“How hard can it be?” is the first question a daring do-it-yourselfer may ask when approaching a perceivably easy home repair. And many have found out the answer to this question the hard way.

- Plumbing Repairs: While this isn’t as dangerous as electric work, plumbing problems can get out of hand fast and lead to an expensive and wet future.
- Roofing Repairs: Aside from the danger involved, roofing work also requires experience to get it right. If you bite off more than you can chew, you may end up with a leaky roof and expensive water damage.
