Home remodeling isn’t as easy as it looks on TV. And for nearly two-thirds of homeowners who’ve attempted a do-it-yourself house project, they say they regret not calling in an expert on at least one of their projects, according to a new survey from ImproveNet of about 2,000 Americans.

But the motivation to save some money is a big driver for their attempts. On average, homeowners said they hoped to save at least 60 percent in costs by bypassing a professional and trying to do it themselves, the survey shows. A separate study by the National Association of REALTORS® shows a bigger attraction to DIY home projects, particularly among younger generations.

On average, homeowners surveyed by ImproveNet reported attempting eight house projects themselves. But about a third admit to having later to hire a professional to redo the job.
