    What types of repairs are there?

    We sort home repairs into four categories to help make sure that you get the best possible service from us, every time.  It’s useful for you to know what your repair is classed as:

    Information Icon

    Emergency repairs

    This is a repair that, if let undone, would be a danger to you or your community, or cause major damage to your home. Think gas leaks, hazardous electrical faults, and major water leaks. Sometimes, depending on the repair, we may not be able to completely fix the problem, but we will always make it safe within 24 hours.

    Information Icon

    Urgent repairs

    This type of repair causes disruption to your home, and may affect your health, safety, or security – meaning they need to be done quickly and easily. Think partial loss of electrical power or gas supply, a blocked bath, or unsecured external door.

    Information Icon

    Routine repairs

    These are repairs that are not unsafe, but if left for a long period or time may get worse and become a hazard. Think loose taps, faulty guttering, or minor plumbing repairs.

    Information Icon

    Replacements

    This type of repair is usually the replacement of items that need pre-inspection, ordering, and manufacture so they take a little longer.

    How long will my repair take?

    Depending on what type of fault you have, influences how long it will take to get it fixed.

    Gas Safe Icon

    Emergency repairs, like a gas leak, will always have a 24 hour response to keep you safe.

    Electrical Safe Icon

    Urgent repairs, like partial loss of power or a blocked bath, will be sorted within three working days.

    Spanner & Screwdriver Icon

    A routine repair, like a loose tap in your sink, will be tackled within 30 working days.

    Water Safe Icon

    We’ll arrange an inspection for all reported cases of damp and will carry these out within 10 working days of being reported.

    Asbestos Icon

    Damp repairs, like a damp proof course, will be completed within 40 working days following the inspection. Some may take a little longer if more complex but we will discuss this with you.

    Building Safe Icon

    Any replacements will be done within 80 working days.

    If your repair is reported after 5pm on a weekday or on the weekend, we’ll respond to you within two hours. Some materials may be difficult to source, and can lead to delays outside of these timescales. If this is the case, we’ll make sure that you’re kept up to date throughout the entire process.
