Here are a few kitchen projects you can do yourself, and a few you should definitely hire a handyman for!
DIY: Faucet Replacement
Is your kitchen sink leaking up a storm, or have you always wanted one with a pull-down sprayer faucet? Swapping out a kitchen faucet can be surprisingly easy with just a few tools. You should be able to manage this one on your own!
Hire it Out: Plumbing Overhaul
For major plumbing work, leave it to the experts! You can cause leaks that can lead to major water damage, not to mention wasting thousands of dollars and valuable clean water. Let a professional handyman address your big plumbing needs.
DIY: Replace a Garbage Disposal
If your disposal is on the fritz, an old one can be an easy fix! Most disposals stay the same from year to year, meaning you can usually swap the old one with a new one of the same model without having to adjust pipes or other connections.
Hire it Out: Install a New Garbage Disposal
If there has never been a garbage disposal under your sink, call an expert in plumbing and handyman services! You need to make sure that all the pipes align, including your drain pipe, and may need special backflow prevention devices installed, depending on your location. Don’t let that gross sewer water seep back into your sink—let a pro handle it!
Paint is one of the fastest and easiest ways to change the look of your home. If you have the time and motivation, do it yourself! Worst case scenario, the paint is a little uneven, but you will have saved hundreds!
Hire it Out: Major Kitchen Remodels
For new cabinet installations, moving walls, electrical work, gas work, or advanced plumbing, let the experts handle it. A skilled handyman can achieve these tasks easily and without mistakes—so let them!
