DIY Home Repairs
Learning to tackle do-it-yourself (DIY) home repairs can be a game-changer for your finances. By acquiring some basic handy skills, you can save money on repair and maintenance costs.
Here’s an example: Imagine your sink is leaking, and you need a plumber to fix it. The average cost for a plumber’s visit can range from $150 to $300 or more. This will depend on the complexity of the issue.
But, if you have some basic plumbing knowledge and tools, you might be able to fix the leak yourself. Do this by replacing a faulty gasket or tightening a connection. This DIY repair could cost you just a few dollars for parts, saving you hundreds in professional fees.
