To DIY or not to DIY

Doing maintenance jobs yourself,  can be a smart way to save money, but choose the right DIY projects or you’ll end 1)__ paying expensive bills and even suffering an injury. We’re not saying that you should call a plumber each time you need to plunge a toilet. But think twice 2) __ what DIY might really cost you. Here’s how to decide.

Only start on jobs you can do 3) __ your free time. If you have a small garden, doing the gardening can be a 4)__ task, but if you’re one of the lucky people that have a large area and a pool, you might stress yourself out. Small unskilled jobs 5)__ washing windows (be careful on that ladder), painting fences or replacing air conditional filters are jobs you can do yourself and save 6) _ a bit of money.

However, if you don’t  have skill and experience, stay off any ladder taller than a meter; emergency rooms are full of people  with ladder injuries. The same goes 7) _ operating dangerous equipment or trying to do electrical work – it’s simply too risky if you don’t have the experience.  If you think a job is  8)__ dangerous, you should consider hiring a qualified professional.
