If you consider yourself to be a pretty handy homeowner, you may be tempted to tile your bathroom yourself. That’s not always a bad idea but, with tiling, it’s easy to get in over your head and open the door to countless costly and time-consuming issues. With almost 60 years of experience in Indianapolis, Indy Renovation can help you with those projects you can’t handle yourself. If you’re wondering why you should avoid a DIY tiling project, consider these three reasons to a call your friends at Indy Renovation.
1. Save TimeHome improvement projects almost always take more time than you bargain for. Most people aren’t able to ignore the rest of their responsibilities and dedicate an entire week to remodeling. There are always other chores to complete and other previous commitments to attend to. And with tiling, the last thing you want to do is rush through the job and end up with crooked lines or ill-fitting corners. Instead, call in a professional who has the time and experience to get it done right the first time.
2. Save MoneyMany people choose DIY remodeling projects because they believe it will be cheaper than hiring a professional. However, to complete a tiling job successfully, you not only have to purchase the tiles, but also the tools and equipment to install them. In the end, it will likely be cheaper to hire someone who already has the proper equipment. Plus, even if you rent the tools, without the right skills to use them, you could end up breaking and wasting your costly tiles.
3. Avoid Domino Problems
When you hire a professional, you get the insurance that it will be done right and a promise to fix anything that isn’t. So, if you tile your upstairs bathroom yourself, but make a mistake and cause water damage that ruins your ceiling, you’ll be responsible for that repair. However, if you hire a bonded and insured professional, there will be less mistakes, and insurance to fix them.
Tiling is actually harder than it looks and can cause problems down the road if done improperly. Having the right equipment and installing it accurately is of the utmost importance, and your friends at Indy Renovation are here to help. Contact us today at (317) 375-4464 for your free consultation!
