Planned Maintenance

property repairs customerWe have a regular programme of maintenance work that we carry out to make sure your home is well maintained and a place you enjoy living in. Work we regularly carry out includes:

Decent homes
During the life of your home there will be times that the parts of your home such as kitchens, bathrooms, central heating systems, roof coverings and windows will need to be replaced. We aim to plan this as far in advance as possible, give you 14 days notice and cause the minimum amount of disruption to you. Visit our Maintenance  – What to expect web page for more information.

External repairs and repainting
Our contract for cyclical redecoration of external surfaces and internal communal areas to blocks of flats since 2009 has been awarded to Ian Williams. View a copy of the overall programme:
