When the external window panels at Lynton Court, an Anchor Trust housing complex, needed replacing after 23 years of deterioration The Trust called upon the expertise of Mila Window & Door Maintenance…
Following consultation with the landlord and scheme manager a decision was made to carry out a pilot panel replacement to one of the worst affected areas of the scheme. Anchor had worked alongside Mila Maintenance in the past and consulted us for a solution.
Mila Maintenance visited Lynton Court for an assessment and recommended a Trespa through colour panel. These colour proof panels would never need painting and would provide vastly improved thermal performance when compared to the old panels.
Having agreed upon this recommendation a pilot scheme was instigated. This meant that the specification, working methods and procedures could be agreed prior to the full contract commencing. Importantly the pilot replacement would show the landlord, scheme manager and residents the finished appearance of the building.
It was at this stage that a further problem was highlighted by Mila Maintenance Engineers, who pointed out that the damp trays also needed replacing. This requirement was added to the project scope alongside other elements such as replacing failed double glazed units and cleaning of fouled guttering. This allowed Mila Maintenance to solve several problems at once and to take advantage of the access provided by the scaffolding on site.
