Do you try to fix it yourself, or call in an expert?
With costs of almost everything rising, people seem to be trying to save money any way they can. There have been many things in my house that I have had to repair with little or no experience (water heater, electrical outlets etc). My dad (who is awesome at everything) lives in a different country and I really wish I could have him around more for stuff like this (I moved to the the US from Canada about 5 years ago). I just found that I need to replace all of the shingles on my garage, which after some research, looks pretty simple.
My question is, when something breaks and you don't know anything about the subject, do you try and google a fix for it, and spend the time to try and learn how to fix it yourself (while making mistakes but gaining knowledge on the way), or do you just pony up the cash and pay the experts.
