I'm a first time homeowner, and when we moved in we were told we'd need to regrade our house. I am deciding whether doing it myself or hiring someone is a better decision, and the following list summarizes my considerations.
- How often do I need to regrade the ground around my house?
- If it's every year (yikes!) or even every few years, then I want to do it myself so I can save the money on contractors that I'll need to hire year after year.
- If it's less frequently (every ~10 years) then I think it's in my budget to hire someone to do it.
Any guidance or considerations that you can give me would be very helpful.
