8 tasks you should never
The list for items you should do to your house is endless-- change furnace filter, clean gutters,
leave a faucet running anytime it's freezing out-- however there are also plenty of things you
should never undertake. Naturally, "set it on fire", "paint all of it black", and "take off the roof" are
gimmes, however we've come up with the top 8 items to be kept away from which many people
already do. Our apologies in case you've already done one of these (or several).
1. Don't do your own plumbing. In case you already have knowledge of how to do it, then this is
only a list of the top 7 things you should never do. But even in case you are an enthusiastic and
knowledgeable DIYer, merely leave this 1 to the pros. It's not so much that homeowners can't do
this or can't learn, but the majority of homeowners are not aware of the safety requirements
outlined in the Uniform Building Code (UBC). Plus, if you mess something up, water gets
everywhere and may destroy a great many things. The risk versus reward of this does not play to
2. Do not park in the yard. Now we know what you're saying, anybody who cares enough about
their home to read an article about tasks you shouldn't do to them already knows not to do this.
But you 'd be amazed. Plus we just wanted to let you know that we didn't overlook this one.
3. Don't remove walls in between rooms without knowing if it is a load-bearing wall. Obviously, in
the event that you are using a quality contractor, this pro will realize which walls can come down
and which can't. However, in case you are doing this by yourself, you need to ask an engineer or
a solid contractor.
4. Do not do bump-outs. Bump-outs are anytime you move a wall out a couple of feet simply for a
little bit of additional space (like a bay window, but to a greater degree). The explanation not to
perform this is simple: the expense per square foot of this improvement is so high that you might
as well go with a more sizable addition at a much lower cost per square foot. Of course, if you like
the texture of pocketed space, more power to you, but also more expense to you.
5. Don't do your own electrical. Same as with # 1, except that you have the added hazard of
becoming electrocuted. Not a smart idea.
6. Don't remodel too much. Now you may have a great deal of money that you just need to get rid
of it, and if so, might we suggest a couple of charities that do some great work. However, you
should keep your remodeling within the general costs of your neighborhood. You've got to keep
the money you put into your home practical compared to the average cost of houses that are
similarly sized in your immediate area; otherwise it is really tough to get the return on your
7. Don't be the person who does not take care of your yard. Every street or every neighborhood
has one, however, don't be that guy! You'll have the entire neighborhood silently hating you,
making passive aggressive comments, then 1 morning you wake up to discover the whole
neighborhood cleaning up your yard, as you stand on the porch in your robe with bed head. Lousy
yards help make the neighborhood seem bad and bring property values down, plus they're an
eyesore. In the event that you're really that swamped, hire a lawn service or a kid from the block.
8. Never fool yourself into thinking your pets do not stink. Because they do. This goes for you, as
well, small dog men and women. You might be used to the smell and the shedded hair, but it's
new to your guests. Pets, although lovable, get their odor on all things. In the event that you have
pets, you ought to clean your carpets and furniture more frequently than usual (like every 6
months), be sure that you open the windows as frequently as the weather permits, and vacuum
as frequently as time allows. Assuming that you are planning to sell, you may need to repaint
inside to help with the odor.
