The Transforming Homes programme is currently limited to work that can be carried out within government guidelines. We are contacting residents with details of how these affect works to their property. If you need to discuss this further, please contact your resident liaison officer.
Our working hours are 8 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday. This includes preparing your property for work each day and cleaning up at the end of the day.
Each step will vary in the time they take but all works will be completed in about 4 weeks.
|Step 1 - strip kitchen||This work will be very messy and noisy. Your contractor will strip out your existing kitchen cupboards.|
|Step 2 - renew your bath, basin and toilet||Your old bath, toilet and wash-basin will be removed.|
|Step 3 - rewire the electrics||This is the noisiest and most disruptive stage as we will be drilling new holes in the walls for the electrical cabling.|
|Step 4 - plastering your kitchen and bathroom||This stage will be disruptive and very messy.|
|Step 5 - fitting your kitchen||Your contractor fits your new kitchen units and worktops chosen by you, including your new kitchen sink.|
|Step 6 - tiling your kitchen and bathroom||Your contractor will tile in your kitchen and bathroom.|
|Step 7 - decorating||Your contractor will decorate the walls in your kitchen and bathroom with your chosen colour paint from our range. This takes about 3 days.|
|Step 8 - laying vinyl flooring||This is a 2 stage job. In the first stage the contractor will apply a levelling compound (latex) which will take about 4 hours to dry, so you will not be able to use the rooms during this time.|
|Step 9 - finishing||An operative will carry out the finishing touches, ready for inspection. Finishing takes about 1 day.|
|Step 10 - checking||We will check the work. If they have missed anything, they will come back to put it right. We call this 'snagging' it takes about 1 day.|
|Step 11 - final inspection and approval||we will inspect your home and if we and you are happy it meets the agreed specification, we will agree the works are complete. Final inspection takes about 1 day|
We will clear the area we are working in at the end of every working day and have the site manager inspect it. Essential services will be reconnected at the end of each day.
