Frank Rogers has been awarded a £300,000 project by Chorley Moore Housing, improving and enhancing the exterior façade and landscapes of a series of former council homes in Chorley.
The former council estate had begun to look and feel tired and required a series of external improvements to modernise, refresh and upgrade the properties, enhancing the area and encouraging residents to own a sense of pride in their homes.
This current phase of works which is already underway, includes 36 houses all on Liptrot Road and is to be completed within a 13 week period.
Initial works included the removal of existing fencing and flagging, followed by a series of external improvements including new brick walls, the installation of new railings, reflagging and the introduction of new frontages with canopies installed over front doors with repairs, paintwork and cladding to window surrounds
Residents were offered a series of choices in terms of finishes to paint work and cladding as well as tiling, all of which were of a high specification and finish.
Dean Rogers, managing director of Frank Rogers said:
“These properties had been neglected to some extent in the past few years and had begun to look tired and dated. These improvement works really lift and modernise all of the homes aesthetically whist the choice of finishes allows the residents to have a sense of ownership and make their home feel individual to their own tastes.”
“We’re already making great progress, with tenants enjoying their makeover at the start of the New Year.”
