It is indeed a matter that we need to know quite too well that irrespective of the knowledge that we may posses with a renovation or remodel, there are some duties of renovations which we will be on the wrong side of the law getting done on our own. There are several reasons why you will not be well advised doing these projects on a “DIY” mode but key among them is the fact that they will be oftentimes involving a lot of procedures and codes that you may not be in a position to follow and as well will require skills and equipping in tools not readily available with you.
These are some of the home renovations projects you will not be allowed to undertake on your own in the home for such reasons; lead paint removal, framework replacement, plumbing renovations, water heating system replacements and repairs, et cetera. Do not just look at the prohibition for the undertaking of these projects for the reason of being outlawed by the laws but consider that if you happen to get down to them on your own will have other adverse effects on your property in effects such as a reduction in the resale value, jeopardize their insurance status, voided warranties, and will even hinder efforts at resale. We will be discussing some of the further kinds of projects you will not be advised to get about on your own so as to keep the home well protected from the losses you will suffer in the event of contravention.
Like we said above, there are a number of home improvement projects which you will not be permitted to do on your own and all for very good reasons. To mention but some in the list, we will find some such as asbestos removal, mold remediation, electrical works, HVAC repairs, large tree removal, the duty to install a light fixture and among others. These assignments will need you to have a particular qualification and expertise as well as trade licensing before one acquires the qualifications needed for the practice.

You will find that most of the houses which were done in the ’80’s were often painted using lead-based paints. In order to have the lead-based paints from such buildings it is mandatory that you possess the keys to this task which are basically skills, training, experience and above all the licenses to do this job all for the reason that lead is not a very human-life-friendly substance and as such one should know how to skillfully handle it whenever they come in contact with it.
