From time to time we will need to carry out planned maintenance to your home. We understand that this can cause disruption and inconvenience to you and your family and we do aim to minimise this by combining works where possible, for example we may fit new doors and windows at the same time or upgrade your insulation while we are fitting a new heating system.
At AHS Ltd, we carry out two types of planned maintenance, Estate Investment Works and Cyclical Works. You can find out what is happening in your area on our “What’s happening in my area” page.
Estate Investment Works
Estate Investment Works are one off projects, which are carried out to improve the standard of living within our properties and/or to raise our properties to Scottish Housing Quality Standard. If you would like to know more please follow this link to the Scottish Government website.
There may be occasions where you have carried out the work yourself, for example you have fitted a kitchen or extra insulation, which we have included in our Estate Investment Plan. In this situation we will need to inspect your property to confirm that the work meets the Society's standards and is SHQS compliant, therefore we ask that when we contact you about proposed works you let us know if you have already carried out the work.
Cyclical Works are repeat maintenance projects which are carried out to maintain the standard and/or safety of your home and your family. They are usually carried out every year or every few years and include gas servicing, external painting and gutter cleaning among others.
