There are more than 9.5 million homeowners in Canada. Of that population, roughly half plan to undergo some sort of home renovation in 2019, a CIBC poll shows.But whether it be basic maintenance or major upgrades to bathrooms, kitchens, or gardens, research shows that Canadians are also looking to spend less on these projects.One surefire way to avoid costly labour charges is to go the DIY route, tackling household projects and renos yourself.“It’s savings in the thousands,” says Mike Di Donato, director of Skilled Trades College of Canada.“When you finish a basement for example, the labour alone runs you in the tens of thousands. If you’re painting the house, depending on the size of your house, it could cost you [up to] $6,000 just in labour. If you’re doing that yourself it is $6,000 in your pocket.”

In conjunction with the Skilled Trades College of Canada and the newly launched Intro to Home Renovation Program, we explore home renovations you can actually (and probably should) do on your own.
