"Extremely efficient and courteous service .... " - Mrs C - Client

How does it work?  Just click the Live Help button in the top right corner of this page or give us a call on 01620 828445, we will arrange a mutually suitable date and time for the visit.   Some types of work may require an initial assessment visit; this will be arranged at the same time.

The usual lead time for a visit is around 3 - 4 weeks.  However, you will be able to use the service again on an ongoing basis.  We reserve the right to prioritise visits where there are safety concerns.  Please note we are unable to offer an emergency service.

Our Small Repairs Officers carry identification cards, so you will know it is one of them at the door when they call.  Typically, jobs are allocated up to 2 hours for the work to be undertaken, if further work is required, another appointment will be made.

How much does it cost?  With our service there is NO cost for the labour, this is free of charge - you will only pay for any materials used.  This will be invoiced once the job is completed.  Please note we are happy to use your materials if they are suitable.

"This is an excellent service and to be recommended" - Mr M - Client
