This Infographic Warns Of Common DIY Pitfalls

We’re all fans of doing your own home improvement work, but sometimes you really need to call a professional to get things done. Whether it’s because you’ll wind up doing more damage than good or because you just don’t have the tools to do the job, this guide will help you make sure you’re not wasting your time.

Even those of us who love doing our own work have to admit that sometimes a pro is necessary to solve a problem we’ve never faced, or get access to tools we don’t have. The graphic starts off with some tips on how not to do a DIY project, as in getting started before you make sure you have a full plan or the right tools, and some of the common pitfalls DIYers run into when they get stuck.

This graphic comes from Woodatt Curtains, a curtain and blind reseller in the UK. Granted, they have a vested interest in you calling a pro, but the guide itself isn’t too controversial. Scroll down to see the full graphic or hit the link below.
