DIY

Between my husband and I, he's the one who's more into doing things himself rather than hiring or asking other people to do it for him. He is pretty much hands on with repairs around the house. However, there are certain things that he hires professionals to do, like house painting. That's because house painting can be tedious and time intensive, and he really does not like to smell the fumes of the paint. And of course, if improperly done, paint can peel off rather quickly.

Professional house painters can be expensive though. Not only that, they sometimes manage to waste a lot of paint and materials because the homeowner pays for it anyway. And, they don't necessarily guarantee a good job. The paint job done at my mother's house (by a professional) is already peeling in parts. I've come across some exterior house painting tips on the net. I'll show it to my husband. He may be interested in it. I'm sure he would still like to have somebody else do the actual painting job, what with the time constraints and with the fumes, but at least he could prepare the surfaces for the paint so that it could last longer.
