Repairs

We are currently only attending to emergencies and urgent repairs. We would ask you to let the operatives work safely in your home and maintain safe working distances of at least 2m. We are taking telephone enquiries during the normal hours between 8am and 5pm.

We are responsible for:

  • the structure and outside of the building – this does not include the garden
  • kitchen and bathroom fixtures
  • electrical wiring, gas and water pipes and water heating equipment
  • any communal areas in your home

If you have caused the problem, we will charge you for it.
