SolarReviews.com, a consumer information website for the residential solar industry, acquired Fixr.com and FIXR NETWORKS SLU, its Spanish subsidiary, to expand its services more broadly into the home renovation sector.
Like SolarReviews, Fixr.com is well known for its detailed cost guides, covering various types of maintenance, renovation, and building projects for the home. Having over 700 accurate and detailed cost guides for a wide array of home improvement and renovation projects, Fixr.com covers everything from kitchen and bathroom remodeling to roof replacement and repair to pest control, flooring, HVAC, and more.
“We’re very excited to take what Fixr.com offers to the next level. Their process for developing accurate cost guides for remodeling projects is excellent and we will add a number of other types of content to the site to make it a full-service home remodeling outlet,” said Andy Sendy, Chairman of SolarReviews.
Coming soon, Sendy says they are developing a number of remodeling cost calculators for the site including bathroom and kitchen remodeling cost calculators and will also add consumer and expert rating systems for contractors.
“In addition, we will bring exciting and engaging lifestyle content covering style trends, DIY, and expert collaborations by recruiting interior design and home styling experts,” Sendy says. “Fixr.com will become the first home improvement website to offer a unique, “one-stop” resource for advice, information, costs, style, trends, and experts on all things home.”
SolarReviews.com provides detailed and accurate costs and savings information for solar installations as well as a roster of the top-vetted nearby solar installers (over 800 partnerships). The platform also allows for unfiltered consumer reviews and an expert rating system for installers.
The Fixr.com acquisition also gives SolarReviews.com a platform to grow its solar content business in Europe with Fixr.com having an office in Alicante, Spain, and the Fixr.es website already established as a brand in Spain.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! — a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch — in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don’t have to. We’ve discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year’s winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
