Generally most experienced Home Inspectors, Carpenters, Electricians, and Plumbers would not recommend attempting some repairs if you have no training or experience in the given field or task you may consider undertaking.
A seemingly simple repair can sometimes require specialized experience, tools, and knowledge that is not generally known by the average home owner or D I Y. That is why having a Certified home Inspection is so important to everyone considering buying or selling a home.
Providing a concise written report and if possible meeting on site after the initial inspection to discuss any concerns is highly recommended.
