More than 30 years’ experience in responsive repairs and maintenance.
Jeakins Weir entered the responsive repair and maintenance market in 1980, initially working on military bases in the East Midlands. Today, we have a special division dedicated to carrying out responsive repairs and planned maintenance work for councils, housing associations, registered social landlords, the NHS and the MoD.
We directly employ teams of multi-skilled operatives, including electricians, carpenters, painters, general builders, gas engineers and plumbers to carry out our repair contracts. These specialists provide a fast, efficient and friendly service for residents whenever their homes need repairs or maintenance – whether it’s an emergency requiring a rapid response or routine property maintenance work.
We currently have long-term contracts with housing associations and councils in and around the region, covering around 20,000 homes.
We also invest in supporting local community initiatives, and we have training schemes for apprentices across all of our sites.
Over the past several years we have sponsored the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Central Bedfordshire Council Cheering Volunteering Awards. We work with colleges to develop their trade courses and to offer work experience for apprentices as well as school pupils. We also encourage our staff to carry out voluntary work in the communities we serve.
