Local Contractor Educates Public on Misconceptions of DIY Shows.
Milwaukee, WI, November 30, 2015 - Every homeowner has been there. You watch a home improvement or do-it-yourself reality show and see a bathroom you fall in love with. On television, you see the old, outdated room converted into a stylish bathroom within 30 minutes. One local plumbing and bathroom remodeling contractor wants to educate the public on the misconceptions of these shows - and how they can set you up for failure.
"DIY and home improvement shows can be great resources for homeowners. They're good for remodeling ideas and inspiration. But, because they oversimplify every aspect of the project, it diminishes the skill of the contractors who spend years perfecting their trade," said Ryan Gumieny, Vice President of Flat Rate Home Services.
It is often forgotten that it takes a lifetime invested in trades such as plumbing, remodeling, HVAC, tiling and carpentry. Men and women spend years in school, becoming licensed and accredited and pride themselves on their expertise. Some would argue that home improvement shows encourage homeowners to be unrealistic in their expectations of home projects.
"These reality shows do not reflect the amount of work that goes into a home improvement project. Projects are completed in such a short time, budgets are skewed, and there is not reference ever made to the quality of products being used," added Ryan.
Flat Rate urges consumers to do their research. Ask questions. Will your remodeling project add to the value of your home? When deciding to take on a renovation by yourself, consider your skill set - not just that of what you see on television. A false sense of ability can end up costing you more to have the job fixed by a licensed contractor down the road.
