Hundreds of roof improvements underway on a Middlesbrough estate

A major investment project on a Middlesbrough estate is benefitting hundreds of Thirteen’s customers.


2 Jul 2019

Thirteen’s investment and maintenance team started working on the Park End estate in April, where almost 500 customers will receive roof improvements to their home.

The work, which is part of this year’s £34.1 million investment plans, will improve the appearance of the homes and ensure they are wind and water tight.

The team has already completed the work on over 100 of the homes and will be working on the estate until August.

Site agent Mark Dunn, who is managing the project said: “We’re making good progress – it’s a fantastic team effort and we’re receiving positive feedback from our customers.”

This year Thirteen’s investment programme includes thousands of internal and external improvements on homes across the Tees Valley and further afield. 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.
