Experts say some 43 million homeowners a year attempt a do-it-yourself project, and an estimated one in five suffers an injury.
In an effort to save time and money, homeowners may turn into DIY weekend warriors. However, if you don't have the level of experience, correct tools and time, that do-it-yourself project could cost more than just money in the long run. Assess your skills and time before you start to tackle a job on your own.
