Make a house a home

We can all appreciate that it’s not just the four walls that make a home but all of the things in it too, along with the special touches.

It’s not always cheap to put your own stamp on your house, but we have a few ways that you can make your house a home.

A lick of paint

Paint can really add up if you have a big room to decorate and while there are some great value offers available, it can still be a stretch when money’s tight. You may find it worthwhile checking out Community RePaint for this reason. The Community RePaint scheme aims to use up any leftover paint in the local community, so that nothing is wasted and you can do up your house for a lot less.

It’s estimated that 50 million litres of paint are left unused every year, whether stored in homes or garages or even just thrown away. That’s enough paint to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

From carpets to white goods

If you’ve already read our Save Money section, you’ll know that sites like Gumtree and PreLoved are great ways to find what you need for less. A simple search could find you a second-hand, good quality kitchen for a fraction of the price, or even a carpet in need of a quick clean. There are so many ways to get more for your money, it may just require a little extra work and a thorough search, but it’s worthwhile checking out sites like these. We all want to boast about how we did up our home for less don’t we?

Get it fixed

Don’t forget that should things go wrong, and you need something repairing or fixing, we’re only a phone call away.

Our repairs service operates from 8am-5pm with early morning and evening appointments also available.  When reporting a repair you can select the most convenient day and time for you.

You can report a repair to us in a number of different ways. You can:

  • Call us
  • Use out Live Chat service on our website
  • Sign into your Halton Housing Customer Account (via our website, under the ‘my tenancy’ section)
  • Via the Customer App

Our emergency repair service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you have an emergency repair – a repair that could cause a health hazard or danger to you and your neighbours, or damage to your home – we will visit within two hours to complete a temporary repair and make it safe. We’ll then follow up repair within 24 hours if required.

If your repair isn’t an emergency, we’ll make sure to arrange an appointment within 20 days for you.
