Next Avenue: PBS’s Web Site for Boomers

When NOT to do a do-it-yourself project has been a topic we cover a lot on our web site so we were happy to be included in Laura Vanderkam’s article on the new PBS web site for Boomers which focuses on “when grown-ups keep growing.”  Laura’s article does a good job of posing questions you should ask yourself before making the decision to DIY or hire a pro. When you answer those questions it makes you think about your skill level and experience, your chance of getting hurt or damaging your house and what’s your time worth.  There’s a lot of issues to consider and her article: Home Repair: When NOT to Do It Yourself  will help you sort out the issues. Here’s a link to the article


Gene and Katie Hamilton are authors of 20 home improvement books and creators of, a website that compares the DIY and contractor costs of hundreds of repair, decorating and remodeling projects. Their weekly column Do It Yourself or Not is syndicated by Tribune Content Agency.
