We survey and carry out planned works to your home based on the lifespan and condition of the various elements in it. We use this lifecycle guide:
|Planned works||Lifecycle (years)|
|External doors replacement*||32|
|Central heating system replacement*||40|
|Storage heater upgrades*||17|
|Hot water cylinder||17|
- = planned works more likely to be completed by scheme rather than on an individual property basis
We aim to provide both value for money and fairness by ensuring we maintain homes to a consistent standard, and do not carry out planned works unnecessarily.
For example: if your kitchen is 20 years old and scheduled for replacement but is in a very good condition, the work will probably be rescheduled to a later date.
Certain planned works, such as roofs and boiler replacements, are more difficult to predict on lifespan only, and these elements are more likely to be replaced based on their condition. If you wonder why your neighbour’s home is getting a new boiler, this is probably because their boiler is uneconomical to repair and therefore it is being replaced as a one-off.
