Now that the weather is finally nicer, many are thinking about tackling a home improvement project.

According to Angie's List, about 43 million homeowners will attempt a do-it-yourself project and one in five will suffer an injury.

To prevent the worst from happening, Angie Hicks recommended that you at least talk to a professional, not necessarily for them to do the job, but for tips and help.

Even if they charge you for an hour of their time, you'll still save money by doing the project yourself, and the advice will help you avoid injuries.
