R3TURN TO INDOOR WORKING
The long-awaited return to normality is here, which means only one thing; the team at R3 Direct are back to business as usual and that includes indoor working in your home. After a year of weaving in and out of testing lockdowns, we’ve all had an opportunity to be only too close to the projects in our home that require urgent attention.
DIY vs R3 Direct
We’ve all witnessed some ‘Do It Yourself (DIY)’ disasters during the lockdown period. Whether you’re guilty of a DIY crime or not, it’s time to ask the all-important question as the lockdown exit plan is underway: “Should I put the toolbox in the shed and call R3 Direct instead?”
BEAT THE RUSH WITH R3DIRECT
The race is on for that perfect “Summer Ready” home you’ve been dreaming of. However, you can’t help but worry about the aftermath of unattended repairs that have been building up over the winter period too. Wondering if your home will be fixed and ready for those Summer rays? No need to fear, R3 Direct’s trusted team of tradesmen are here!
WE AR3 STILL OPEN
Yes, Scotland is in lockdown, however R3 Direct is still operational, through lockdown and beyond. In these uncertain months, one thing we know for sure, is that the team at R3 Direct will be available for outdoor works and are able to respond to urgent and emergency works for our blue members before what we hope will be a steady recovery to normality. So, now is a better time than ever to become a member! However, it’s clear that there’s still a fair way to go; until then, we will continue to follow the current government guidance.
Working Against Water Damage
The importance of water is undeniable. From fresh drinking water to washing your clothes, water is in daily use in all of our homes. Unfortunately, water can also cause some serious issues in the home, if proper care and attention is not paid to household appliances and fixtures and fittings. That’s right, the refreshing and resourceful commodity the world needs isn’t always on your side!
PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR THE WINTER
Preparing your home for the cold months is rather like Winter checks on a car; fix the small things before they turn into big things! After all, a house is typically your biggest investment and deserves a bit of tlc before Winter 2020 takes hold. Take a look at some of our recommendations to ensure your home is prepared to fight the winter weather before it’s too late.
