Kandua - 5 Projects You Really Don't Want To DIY


We all love the thought of being able to do DIY projects ourselves. The problem is without

the proper tools and expertise DIY can go badly wrong and end up costing you a fortune.

Wallpaper installation

There’s more to hanging wall paper than just sticking it down. Here are other things that

could affect the wallpaper for example, the moisture levels in a room, the amount of sunlight

as well as the wall itself. A professional will be able to install it correctly the first time, saving

you time and money.

Exterior painting

Painting a feature wall in your home is one thing but painting the walls outside your home or

office is another challenge all together. You need special paint, secure ladders, rollers and

brushes and the skills to stand on a ladder for hours and paint consistently. Botching the job

on your first attempt will set you back thousands of rands. Your best bet is to hire a pro.

Junk removal

Removing garden waste and junk is not as easy as it seems. For smaller loads, getting your

friend with a bakkie to help might be enough but for the bigger jobs such as furniture, or

building rubble a professional is the way to go. Not only will you save time and effort but

you don’t risk damaging your vehicle during the trip. Professionals also know the correct

way to dispose of junk.

Paving your driveway

How hard can laying a few bricks be right? Wrong. The driveway needs to be measured in

detail, everything from the angles, to the bricks to the stones. The slightest mistake or

positioning error will set you back by days not to mention the financial cost. Rather hire a

pro - your driveway will be done faster, look much better and last much longer.

Pest control

They are called pests for a reason. When it comes to these small creatures, do not attempt

to tackle the problem yourself.

Pest infestations can cause serious damage to your property,

and in severe cases, contaminate your home. Hire a pest control pro to make sure your

infestiation is removed thoroughly and safely.
