Our experience meant that we were able to recommend appropriate installation methods for different window framing systems and at the same time could identify any further problems or necessary maintenance on the windows as the contract progressed.
The 96 Anchor Care homes were up to four storeys high and featured a range of different styles and sizes of windows in a mix of PVC-U, timber, steel and aluminium.
Safety restrictors were fitted on all of the opening sashes in windows at care homes to eliminate any ongoing risk to its residents from open windows.
Mila Maintenance is one of very few companies in the UK with the resources and capacity to carry out such a large scale programme in 96 separate homes, which was completed on time and on budget.
We directly employ teams of NVQ qualified maintenance engineers which operate across the UK. Each of these is trained not just in the technical aspects of window and door maintenance and repair but also in the important skills of liaising politely with residents and delivering a reassuring and friendly service. All of this was very valuable to Anchor and in turn to the managers of its homes.
