Living in our DIY world it’s hard to know if we should search the internet for quick fixes or reach out to a professional for real solutions.

There’s an appeal in installing, renovating or repairing things around our homes ourselves. Home improvement stores are nearby, we can watch how-to videos on our phones, people on tv home shows make the work look easy, and – to be honest – we are conditioned to think if we do it ourselves it will be cheaper.

So when you are wrestling with when to call a repair person, here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Am I in immediate danger? This may seem like a silly question but you would be amazed at how many times people are standing in a pool of water with a wiring issue wondering if they should call for help. If this is you, the answer is yes. We are available to walk you through safely disconnected power until we can be there to help.
