At GB Electrical & Building Services, home adaptations have become an increasingly sought after part of our services. Our reputation in the sector has been earned over time by successfully delivering projects in partnership with local authorities, sheltered housing providers and other specialised facilities in Herefordshire and beyond. We now offer that same trusted level of service to private homeowners.

Making home life easier and delivering independence

From offering specialist help and advice on which home adaptations might be right for the individual, to putting the right people in place to carry out the work reliably and efficiently, our home adaptations service incorporates each of our teams to offer a complete, ‘right first time’ service to private homeowners.

Experience, combined with dedication

Supporting our clients to live independently in their own homes means delivering the adaptations they need to do so. That could be something simple, such as a ramp or grab rails fitted inside or outside the home. It could be bathroom modifications, work in the kitchen to allow easier access or a stair lift. Then again, the work required might be larger in scale, such as an extension or conversion to incorporate a ground floor bedroom or bathroom, or to transform an existing bathroom into a much easier to use wet room.

Our belief is that everyone should have the opportunity to make those changes that will enable them to continue living in their own homes with dignity and independence. That is why we have invested time and resources into creating a home adaptations service that homeowners can trust, a service that takes care of every single aspect, no matter how small or how big.

A ‘Wraparound’ Service

It is all too easy to feel overwhelmed when thinking about the future or making changes to your home because of old age or disability. You may need a wide range of services for example, or face logistical challenges with no idea where to start.

At GB Electrical & Building Services, our strength is our ability to handle everything. We have the teams in place to literally do it all.

From time-served and skilled carpentry and joinery specialists to the best floor fitters and tilers, as well as fully Gas Safe® and NICEIC accredited gas and electrical engineers and the best construction experts. We can offer homeowners a complete ‘wraparound’ service from the moment you get in touch, through to project completion.

By far the largest section of our society who own their own homes in the UK are those aged 65 and over.* That is a statistic that comes as little surprise due to a range of factors. The housing market is a difficult one to navigate for younger people and generally, families are having fewer children. People are also enjoying longer lives and enjoying better medical care and standards of living.

This ageing of our population is a trend that is set to continue with nearly one in seven of us expected to be 75 or over by 2040.**
This trend will have implications for many aspects of life, particularly in the homes we own and the adaptations we will rely on to maintain our standards of living and our independence.

At GB Electrical & Building Services, our goal is to help homeowners make the changes they need to live comfortably and independently today and into the future…
