As a Florida installation company that has been meeting the installation needs of West Florida since 1999, we here at Suncoast Installs have seen a thing or two. Usually, we see those things when we are called in to complete an installation that has gone wrong either due to DIY efforts or to subpar installation companies working on a job that they don’t understand. We, of course, would rather that you call us in the first place to get a job done right the first time, so today we want to talk a little bit about some home DIY statistics that relate to home installation projects which alone should convince you that it’s always worth the expense to get the job done by a reputable company like Suncoast Installs instead of taking shortcuts and pinching every penny in sight.

Florida Installation Company Suncoast Installs Shares Home DIY Statistics You Should Know

These home DIY statistics are scary but true and proof positive of why you should leave installation jobs to the professionals like Suncoast Installs!


Falling from a height as low as three feet can cause serious bodily injury which will not only hurt, but it could cost you big in medical bills as well as in terms of time off work! Can you really afford to lose time and money because you’re so stubborn that you don’t want to trust a DIY project to a professional installer who can get the job done on time and on budget? If your answer is no, then leave the DIY work well enough alone and call us at Suncoast Installs to do the job for you!

Unfinished Projects

According to recent studies, the average American has NINE unfinished projects lying around the house. These are all projects that were started with the intent of seeing them through to completion, however, something came up or got in the way and stopped that from happening. How many unfinished DIY projects do you currently have and are hoping will disappear? If you have a habit of starting DIY projects but never finishing them and now you have a house full of what is essentially junk,  it’s time to drop the idea of DIY and let a good Florida Installation company take care of it all for you instead!

Going With the Cheapest Options

Statistics show that when homeowners take care of their own DIY or installation, they very frequently select the cheapest tools and the cheapest supplies needed to get the job done. Of course, you don’t want to invest too much into a single DIY project or tool especially if you’re not a habitual DIY’er. The problem is, however, that depending on the DIY job that you will be undertaking, there are more than a few risks that come with cheap materials and tools! For example, cheap tools can turn out to be deadly when mounting a large television on your wall – choose a tool that isn’t powerful enough and you’ll end up not being able to get your screws all the way into the wall and that means that your television mount won’t be sturdily anchored and could fall at any time. Have a professional get the job done for you and you don’t have to worry about investing in tools or getting the job done correctly for yourself!

Codes and Compliance

When it comes to the statistics for home DIY, the numbers show that almost all home DIY’ers fail to comply with current building and safety codes when undertaking home DIY projects. More often than not this is the result of homeowners simply not knowing that they need to apply for permits or abide by certain regulations – most people think that these rules are in place for professional builders only! Unfortunately, when you do these projects without the necessary clearance or license, you are not only breaking the law, but you are creating a danger for your family living in the home, and you are making it exceedingly difficult to sell your home in the future!
