You should always call someone for help with a repair that feels too dangerous for your set of tools and knowledge. However, there are a lot of repairs that can be done around the home that don't need a professional. This year, resolve to try one of these easier-than-you-realize repairs around the house. You might surprise yourself!

If you rent (check your lease to make sure it's not against the rules to make certain repairs), live in a location that requires a professional to handle certain tasks (according to building code) or have zero experience with tools, you might want to call in someone to help.

But otherwise, use the tutorials below to step outside of your home repair comfort zone and try to fix something yourself!
