Bathroom Upgrades

As part of our planned maintenance schedule we will upgrade bathrooms in our properties every 30 years. If you are due an upgrade soon, we’ll be in touch to let you know which contractor will carry out the work. In the meantime, you may find the following information useful.

Things you need to know

The installation of the bathroom should take no longer than three days. If the existing WC is separate from the bathroom, we will consider alterations to combine them into one. In this case five days will be required (the operative will discuss with you and advise accordingly).

What work will be done?
The existing bath, toilet and wash basin will be removed and will be replaced with a new suite. We will also offer to install a Mira electric shower, if you do not have one already. Full height wall tiling will be carried out where the shower will be installed. If you choose not to have a shower or do not plan to install your own, we will fit two rows of white tiles around the bath and one row above the wash basin to protect the walls from water splashes. An extractor fan will also be fitted or renewed.

Disruption to your home
We will endeavour to keep the disruption to a minimum but there will be restricted access to your home while the work is being carried out. There will be some noise and workmen will need to be in and out of your home many times. You will be left with a fully functional toilet after each day.

We will treat your home with courtesy and respect. Dust sheets will be used and the contractor will clean up any mess. All equipment will be packed away at the end of each day.

As a matter of security please do not let any workperson working on behalf of Bromford into your home without requesting to see their identification.

Things you need to do before the work starts
Please remove all items, toiletries, toilet roll holders, mirrors, cabinets and other furnishings.

If you have your own existing floor covering that you wish to keep or have laminate flooring, please lift it before the work starts as we cannot be responsible for any damage. If however you would prefer, we can supply and fit new flooring on completion of the work. You will be given a selected colour choice of three vinyl sheet floor coverings. Please note this is a once only offer, Bromford will not be responsible for repair or replacement of the chosen flooring once it has been fitted.

Please ensure that all pets are kept in a room which is not affected by these works.
