Repairs and Covid-19
Most restrictions relating to C-19 have been lifted, but please:
- Continue to let us know in advance if anyone in your household has symptoms or is isolating so that we can take additional precautions if our visit is essential or an emergency, or re-arrange it for a later date if it’s not urgent.
- Tell our contractors if you would prefer them to wear a face covering when they’re working in your home.
- Respect our contractors’ wishes if they ask you to wear a face covering. If you don’t want to wear a covering, please keep a safe distance and open doors and windows to increase ventilation while they’re in your home.
