Most people prefer not to think about home repair & improvement in winter: they probably know that you can’t paint outside anyway in freezing temperatures. And you certainly don’t want to have your house renovated when it’s cold outside: imagine not being able to use your bathroom for a few days or the contractor breaking a section of an exterior wall for your home extension!
 
But if you only start looking for an exterior painter or contractor in April, the best professionals will be booked up for the whole outdoor season.

In its latest commercial, Dutch insurer ASR illustrates nicely how it is often better to repair wood flooring in a sustainable way than to replace it. MrFix does that too: we help Customers to repair and improve their homes & appliances instead of scrapping things.
