I am a handy person but I have started hiring out more and more.
I don’t want to mess around with jobs that I can hire for.
I would much rather work more to pay someone else to do it. Renovations are stressful too. If someone else can take away that burden, how great. I decided that for my bathroom remodel I was going to hire what I could. I got a contractor to lay the floor and shower tile for me. He also installed a new window. I then had an electrician put in outlets for me, a vanity light and overhead light. The plumber installed my toilet, sink and shower controls. Then I decided that I wanted to add bathroom ventilation. I hate how hot it gets in there. The heat rises and creates condensation. I battle mold and streaks. I didn’t even pause to consider when I called the HVAC contractor. It stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. So of course they do bathroom ventilation installation. When the HVAC contractor came over he thought he was doing something to my ductwork. After clarifying and showing him my bathroom vent he laughed at me. Electricians mess with those things. It is too small of a job for a HVAC contractor. Luckily I was able to swing a deal with him to get the install done. I mean he had the tools and had seen a bathroom vent before. Now I know for next time he is not the guy to call. I am just relieved that I got everything set up right.
