Coronavirus

Updated 24/06/2020 

A message from Jo Ray, Executive Director of Customer Service, Karbon Homes 

We are committed to keeping you regularly updated on our response to the Covid-19 situation as the Government guidance changes and as we start to carefully restart further services. 

We want to update you on the services we are resuming, and to let you know about the new arrangements we have put in place to ensure they are safe for you and our colleagues. 

Before making any decisions about the reintroduction of any service, our main consideration is always the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues.    

We have been following not only the national guidance set out by the Government but also keeping a close eye on the situation in our region, so we can make the safest decisions possible.  

As you may be aware, this week the Government has also announced that the safe social distance has been reduced from two metres to one metre plusAt Karbon we’vetaken the decision to maintain the two-metre guidance as much as possible when delivering our services. 

Here’s a quick overview of our services that have now resumed: 

  • Continued to deliver emergency repairs inside and outside the home
  • Continued with gas servicing  
  • External planned maintenance such as wall repointing and rebuilding anrepairs to roofs, guttering and fencing 
  • Grounds maintenance 
  • Solid fuel, air source and solar heating servicing
  • Estate inspections
  • Scheme inspections, including internal areas
  • Retirement living colleagues have increased their time at the schemes
  • House viewings, lettings and sales
  • Viewings and sign-ups in specialist housing, supported housing and extra care 

And from 6 July: 

  • Our phone lines and the My Karbon customer portal will open up to accept new internal repair jobs.
  • Our repairs service inside customer’s homes will resume 

Important information - Plastering work

Unfortunately at the moment, we are unable to accept requests for plastering work due to a national shortage of plaster.
