Council's home maintenance service provides general household maintenance and modifications to assist you to remain independent in your home and to ensure your home is safe and secure.
The service includes:
- modifications to bathrooms and toilets
- installation of ramps and rails
- smoke alarm installation and battery changes
- general repairs
- some basic gardening
- minor plumbing, carpentry, or electrical tasks
- minor repairs to independent living aids.
You will be required to pay the cost of any materials purchased and to contribute to the cost of rubbish removal (if needed).
We will provide a quote on the cost before the work starts. The service is limited to tasks that would usually be done by a handy-man or semi-skilled tradesperson.
The service is unable to undertake work such as plastering or painting.
Major renovations and other skilled work is usually beyond the scope of the service. In these situations, we will provide general advice and information to assist you.
