In addition to managing the maintenance and repairs for the 500 or so properties we manage on behalf of landlord clients across North Leeds, our maintenance team, comprising of Gemma, Oneeka and Luke, also project manage the refurbishment of properties.
The refurbishment of 19 Elsham Terrace began in March this year and due to Covid-19, faced multiple set-backs – but nothing our Property Maintenance Co-ordinator, Oneeka, couldn’t handle! Preparation began in March before lockdown was introduced, with plans to transform the kitchen and bathroom.
Just as we were ready to begin, lockdown arrived. The contractors were unable to source supplies such as paint and plaster, and soon couldn’t carry out works at all due to social distancing rules for non-essential workers.
After 19 Elsham Terrace sat in waiting for a several weeks, restrictions finally lifted for Oneeka and our contractors to hit the ground running and they could complete the refurbishment quickly, to a high standard.
In July, the old blue and brick kitchen theme was transformed into a modern, welcoming space by S A Joinery & Maintenance. This was soon followed by a new bathroom in August when Joe McCartney Joinery and Building installed a brand new bath, re-painted and re-tiled the walls and fitted a new door onto the cupboard.
However, the set-backs did not stop there. In September, the guttering on the property was found to be rotting and would need to be replaced. Oneeka quickly contacted Argie Roofers who fixed the issue, placing the cherry on the cake – or the quality roofing on the house!
