Do It Right The First Time - Home Restoration

Someone told me something a long time ago and I would like to share it with everyone who was truly interested in doing a good job,” If you're going to do something, do it right.” I heard this saying a long time ago and it really makes a lot of sense.

Another person who I used to work for, told me something that didn't make as much sense until later in my career,” It takes just as much time to do something wrong as it does to do it right.” This didn't make much sense to me when I was younger, because it seem like you could do something wrong faster than you could do it right.

Now this might not make a lot of sense to people that work by the hour or are paid simply as part of the process for working certain hours, but for someone like myself, I only got paid after I had completed a certain part of the job.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about. If I was installing a set of stairs and it wasn't built correctly, the construction foreman would make me repair the damage, before I got paid. After repairing or installing special blocking that I conveniently forgot to put in, I got the message loud and clear.

I know plenty of people in the construction business who really aren't interested in building houses to the best of their ability. This has always irritated me and often I was the one who needed to go back and repair their poorly constructed works of art. If you truly don't have a desire to do it right the first time, go find another business to belong to.

Poorly constructed buildings create safety hazards and safety hazards eventually create accidents. Some of these accidents, can be extremely hazardous to someone else's, including your own health.
