We know that every home needs a makeover once in a while and we continuously improve all of our properties to ensure our residents’ homes are happy places to be.
Planned maintenance is large-scale repair and improvement work done to a number of properties in a particular estate, village or area. For example, this could include the fitting of new windows or replacing roofs.
Each year, York Housing Association spends in excess of £500K on its planned maintenance programme which includes work such as:
Providing new double glazed windows and doors
Central heating replacements
External decorations and repairs
Renewing kitchens or bathrooms
Providing insulation and improving energy efficiency
Carrying out small environmental improvements.
Some of our older properties may need some or all of these improvements and because not everything can be done at once, the work carried out each year depends on the condition of the various estates in each area.
Wherever possible we try to take into account residents’ preferences for the type and timing of work we carry out, but we must make sure that we improve those parts of each home and those estates which are in the worst condition.
We use a database compiled from surveys of our properties to establish which of our homes are due for improvements and when this work will take place. Our database tells us the age of kitchens, bathrooms and more, plus when they are likely to be in need of replacement.
If your property is due an upgrade we will be in touch to arrange a visit to your home prior to any work beginning.
