Looking for a home
Making lives better
Gwenoline and Laraine, who have lived in their homes for a combined total of 111 years, were very pleased after recent refurbishments to their kitchens and bathrooms were completed last month. We spoke to them both last week to find out more…
Our Reinvestment Delivery Team worked with building services company Chas Berger to complete the refurbishments and the work was done and dusted in a little over three weeks.
One of our customers, Laraine, said, following the refurbishment:
“The kitchen I had before was manageable but the bathroom needed a refresh.
“All in all, it didn’t take very long and I am so pleased with the way the job has turned out. The workmen were 100 percent professional.
“After I met with the Housing Liaison Officer from Chas Berger, I let her know that it would be really helpful to have a wet room (bathroom) to make it easier for my sister and I. They agreed and the way the bathroom has changed has been a godsend for the both of us in our day to day lives.”
Kitchen and bathroom before and after
Gwenoline, who also had the kitchen and bathroom upgraded has had the same bathroom since the day she moved in over 40 years ago. Although she was still happy with it, the new fitting gave the room a lovely lift.
“I’ve lived here since 1976 and it has been a pleasure, but I have had the same bathroom since the day I moved in and the kitchen was last done in 2001, so both were due an upgrade really.
She concluded: “The work that the workmen have completed here has been marvellous, they came in and gutted everything quickly and they’ve done an excellent job, I can’t fault it. They were so polite and did the job so professionally.
