Thirteen’s design and delivery team has been working in partnership with Esh Living on the £800,000 project, which started on the Park Estate in July.

The work, which is on track to be completed by November, has benefitted over 40 customers who have received roofing improvements, new windows and doors, canopies and cladding.

Project manager Rubie Lee said: “These improvements have really benefitted our customers and modernised the appearance of the estate. Many customers have already told us that their homes feel much warmer too.”

This year Thirteen is carrying out £34.1m of internal and external improvements on homes across the Tees Valley. This includes replacing over 215 kitchens and around 80 bathrooms. Almost 1,640 properties will receive new windows and 680 properties will receive new external doors.

The work will help reduce our customer’s fuel bills, with around 1,760 new boilers being installed over the year, making homes more energy efficient and cost effective.

Over the next five years Thirteen has plans to invest over £1billion into improving homes for existing customers, building new homes, making improvements to neighbourhoods and into the support services offered to customers.
