Common Remodeling Mistakes During DIY Projects

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Remodeling can be a great way to change the appearance and function of any room in your home.  Whether you want to put a spa tub in your bathroom, install an island in the kitchen, or even remove a wall to make your bedroom larger, a great deal of skill and hard work is required. Here are two of the biggest remodeling mistakes that people make.


One of the biggest and most common remodeling mistakes is taking on a project that you simply do not know how to do.  Knocking out walls or changing your plumbing can be dangerous, and it can cost thousands of dollars in damage if done improperly.  Your pipes and wiring are quite delicate, and a single remodeling mistake can be devastating.  Ensuring that you know exactly what to do, or that you have someone help who has done the job before can help you save time, money, and frustration.  It can also help ensure that the job is done correctly.


Another common mistake when remodeling is haste.  Don’t try to get the job done in a day.  If the project requires three days, make sure that you have five days set aside to complete it.  Nothing ever goes perfectly, and trying to remodel an entire bathroom in an afternoon is a recipe for disaster.  Take your time, and make sure that you get everything done properly, rather than quickly, with any remodeling project.
