It may impact your back-splash if you have one installed.

As for a DIY project - that all depends how handy you are doing renovations around the house. If the biggest DIY project you ever did was change a light bulb, then get someone in to do it for you But if you have done a number of bigger renovations (like install hardwood floor, install a bathtub, etc) and felt quite confortable about it, then you should have no problems learning and doing this renovation.

I do most of my own renovations (assuming I have the time for it). I like to find a someone who is familiar with the work and asked for some guidance/tips/suggestions.

By the way, depending how big your counters are, this is probably a 2 or 3 person job to lift and install the new counter.
