We may be a little slower responding at the moment as demand is very high - please bear with us.
We will respond to all enquiries - although in the current situation, where we have fewer staff in work and are having to prioritise urgent matters, we hope that you will understand if it takes us longer than usual to deal with non-urgent requests.
Need a repair?
Due to the current situation, we are only carrying out emergency repairs and essential safety checks. But we are now placing orders for some non-urgent repairs to the outside of people’s homes – these are guttering, drainage, flagging and bricklaying jobs.
Check here to see what we consider an emergency repair. If you have an emergency repair, please call us on 03000 123 123.
You can also book a non-urgent repair to the outside of your home online.

If you’re hard of hearing, or if you have difficulty speaking over the phone, you may be interested in the Next Generation Text (NGT) service.
This is a modern texting service which you can also access on a mobile device.
Calling shouldn't cost you any more per minute with NGT than it would for a voice phone call, although it may take longer.
