Planned Repairs

Planned repairs cover things like roofing, guttering and fencing fixes, larger plastering and brickwork jobs as well as repairs that need scaffolding or specialist machinery to finish. For these types of repairs we have a 90 day window to complete the job, that’s because it often needs some specialist skills, machinery or materials.  

Planned Maintenance 

Each year we carry out work to improve and modernise our properties.  This can include for example, installing replacement kitchens, bathrooms, windows and doors or heating systems.
