Many home projects can be done by the home or business owner. Having said this there are many project that DIY just isn't a good idea. Cutting down trees may look like anyone can do it but unless you have the proper equipment and experience you should never risk it. One mistake can cost you thousands in property damage, personal injury, and yes even death. Professionals have the equipment to safely remove trees and have the experience needed to remove the tree. There are many other projects which are better left to trained professionals. Thinking "I can do this." may be the first mistake you are making. Yes it may cost you more then you think it will when you decide on doing a project and hiring the pros. But can save you hundreds or even thousands in the end. Beside the professional should stand behind their work and guarantee the work for a reasonable time after completed. Hiring a professional who guarantees their work is a win, win deal. You get the project completed and a guarantee it was done right and meets current standards for the work they did for you. If there is any doubt as to weather to do it yourself or hire a professional always hire the professional and not risk a bad outcome.

Over 40 years of experienced professionals who have been building homes and making repairs to homes . Our team of professionals go through training by other experienced professionals. All work is guaranteed to be of the highest quality available. The homeowner can't guarantee the work they do even if they have more experience in the industry. There are a lot more reasons to hire a professional team. But DIY is a good choice if the owner has the knowledge required and are willing to forfeit guaranteed workmanship.
Are you aware most insurance companies will not insure DIY projects while under progress. So a homeowner adding to their home may or may not be insured for the project while a professional has liability insurance (or should have) to cover unforeseen events and damages. Homeowners should always demand proof of Insurance prior to any work being done.
Thanks for the question.
