Whether customers are looking for a quick touch up, small repair, damage restoration, or big home renovation, many will turn to the services provided by home improvement franchises from coast to coast. These businesses provide residential and commercial services including painting, emergency restoration, flooring, repairs and remodeling, handyman services, decking, interior and exterior renovations, and much more.
Franchises that provide improvement, renovation, or restoration services are an excellent option for those looking to join an industry that helps support and assure Canadians that their most sacred spaces—their family homes—are repaired and protected. Many of these brands don’t require previous handyman or repair experience, as franchisees oversee the repairs are done by their staff, while others let franchise owners get involved in the repairs and help their customers from start to finish.
When inspiration for a fresh transformation hits or unexpected disaster strikes, look no further than these home improvement franchises across the country!
