After the damage that keepmoat company caused last year to internal properties including our own flat with electrics and holes in walls and ceilings, of which residents at the meeting screamed at them and the councils for the damage and stress it caused. Well southwark has decided to have them back again this year. Now they are doing external works including windows and electrics and already been told it will be very noisy and our blocks will be covered in scaffolding and I was also told by their secretary its still in the experimental stages, well I am sure that makes residents feel confident. Why an earth are the council using the same poor company again and again. Do residents feeling stress and opinions count for nothing at these meetings. We are the ones left with all the mess, not the councils. Private residents have already been sent a bill for 16K before works have even started. Is this company on contract for a certain time and the council cant break it, or do they just like using cheap companies. I am dreading it when they start works on our flats again.

Anyone else had poor experience with this company Keepmoat?

They are terrible, the mess they left behind in a friends flat when they did the rewire :(
Old trunking ripped out leaving old paint and debris behind, all rooms left filthy especially the bathroom, new trunking all over the place, no thought to where the new sockets put, attempted to sweep up carpet with a soft broom! Awful just awful...

Life's too short live it!!!

I do hope they have turned over a new leaf - we have them starting on our estate in the next week or so...
