Planned Works

We aim to keep our properties in good condition.  We have a planned maintenance prgoramme which is regularly under review.  Part of our rental income is set aside to pay for work, such as repairing stonework and pipework every 5 years.  This money is also used for replacing other essential external items at the end of their useful lives.  By undertaking planned maintenance works, we ensure your home is of a high standard and meets the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS).  These works include a number of replacement programmes, such as kitchens, bathrooms, windows and boilers.  These components have an anticipated lifespans which are used to inform our planned maintenance programme, as show below:

  • Kitchens- 15 years
  • Bathrooms - 20 years
  • Extractor fan - 15 years
  • Windows (timber) - 40 years
  • External doors (timber) - 40 years
  • Gas boiler - 15 years
  • Storage heaters - 20 years
  • Radiators - 30 years
  • Roofs - 40 years

We strive to provide the best possible service and to carry out any necessary works with as little disruption as possible.  Communication is important to us and we endeavor to involve and inform our tenants as much as possible.  Furthermore, all of our staff and contractors should provide you with clear identification when visiting or contacting you.

Please Let Us In!

As with all works we wish to undertake, they can only be done if you grant us access. The works we programme in each year are vital to ensure your home is kept in excellent condition and are pleasant, modern places to live. If you are contacted for access for a survey or to carry out works in 2017/18, we would be grateful if you would provide access to allow our programmes to progress as planned. Notice will be given to all tenants whose properties are included in our programmes however if you do not allow the works to progress, these properties then need to be caught up in later years. Keeping track of these ‘no-accesses’ requires additional staff resources and costs Williamsburgh money.
