Could I do building work myself?

DIYers admit to causing cosmetic damage to their property and 5% fail to finish within a year.

As we have said elsewhere, we are happy to take the project right to the very end and include shower room fitting, decorating, and tiling.

At the other end of the scale we are also happy just to do the building work and leave you to finish the job yourself, but we really would only recommend that you do this if you are a qualified practitioner because, even if you are an expert amateur, you may have problems persuading a future buyer that the jobs have been done correctly.

Some people might even contemplate doing the whole thing themselves , but you might like to know that, in a recent survey, 12% of DIYers admit to having caused cosmetic damage to their property’s wallpaper or paint work. 10% have damaged the electrical supply or central heating systems, 9% have ruined flooring, and 5% admit to having failed to finish the job within a year.
