We wanted to give you a quick update on how we’re handling all the changes that COVID-19 has brought to our communities. We know there is a lot of uncertainty in the future and we have all been spending more time at home lately. Here’s what we’ve been up to as we monitor the situation:
From an unexpected leak to planning ahead for a summer project, let ImproveNet connect you to contractors in your area for free today.
Giving Our Contractors Additional Training
In addition to sending out email updates to our contractors regarding best practices during this time, we have also provided additional education opportunities with a free webinar that all contractors were welcome to attend or watch later at their own convenience regarding changes they might have to make in mitigating the spread of the virus.
Encouraging Homeowners To Start Outdoor Projects
While it might not be the best time to start indoor projects, you can get ahead now by planning your outdoor projects. Fencing, roofing, landscaping and more can all be done outdoors.
Additionally, remember some home services are considered essential, such as plumbing, HVAC and electrical. If you have an unexpected need, know that we’re ready to help connect you to these pros.
Support Your Local Businesses
Around the country, small businesses are worried about financial hardship. Don’t forget about your local contractor or handyman. If you’ve been waiting to start a project, contact a pro today and see how you can get it done safely.
Avoid Unnecessary Trips To The Hardware Store
With many states under a shelter-in-place, now is not the time to gather supplies from your local hardware store to tackle the projects you’ve had on your list. Avoid making trips to the hardware store in order to continue to flatten the curve and keep the spread of the virus contained. A great alternative is to order what you can online for delivery or curbside pickup.
We hope you and your family are staying healthy during this time and as always, we’re here to help.
