3 DIY tips for Keller homeowners

Whether inspired by countless cable shows or the desire to have the perfect kitchen, more Keller residents are doing their own home improvement projects. Laying hardwood floors, installing plumbing and replacing windows has become more attainable than ever before.

Consider these following tips in determining how to tackle your next job.

Assess the job
Define what you want to accomplish. Determine your timetable, budget and the project scale and scope. Match your tools from there. There are certain projects that might be better left to experts. If you don't feel you can accomplish your overall goal, don't be afraid to hire local contractors to complete your vision.

Research the project and tools
In some cases, people turn to professionals for jobs they could do themselves because they don't know what tools they need. To avoid that pitfall, research tool reviews, equipment magazines and even retailer websites to help guide you with your tool selection.

One’s skill level also plays a factor when it comes time to choose a tool. A veteran DIYer might not need some tools someone performing a project for the first time might. And to fit these needs, purchasing specialized tools allows you to do a specific task — like drilling through concrete — while avoiding the cost of hiring a a contractor.

Consider ROI
Look in depth at the tool you need to buy and at the different brands on the market that fit for your budget. Private label brands like Ironton often offer value. And instead of bouncing from one hardware store to the next, utilize product comparison tools online to compare and contrast product life, value, capabilities and quality to determine the best return on investment.

While DIY projects often save money, they also provide an enhanced pride in ownership associated with seeing your handiwork. With the right tools, you can tackle many home improvement projects. Ultimately it’s the person who makes the tool, not vice versa. For Keller homeowners, there has never been a better time to gather resources on home projects.
