When you live in a Clearwater area condo, you pay a fee for a home maintenance contract. So you park your car and walk beneath clean gutters over sparkling sidewalks and step inside your home.
When you own a Clearwater area home, you can’t get out of your car without seeing something else that should be added to that ever-lengthening To Do List.
There are many things that a homeowner can and should do themselves. It keeps you familiar with changes as they occur and while not always a time saver, Do It Yourself projects can be a cost saver.
But the times when you really don’t know what you are doing and/or don’t have the right tools for the job are the times you need to call in a professional. How many times have you been in a Home Depot or a Lowe’s and seen a frustrated homeowner obviously in the middle of a “Do it Yourself” job, looking for the right bolt or wrench? I’ve heard people say, “This is the third time I’ve been here today!”
You do get a sense of accomplishment when you successfully complete a project, but you’ll get a bigger dose of satisfaction if you realize where to draw the line and know when to seek home maintenance assistance from a professional. And I’m sure you would much rather spend the day playing golf or at the beach relaxing because you deserve it.
