I [ and my 7 neighbours] have been waiting for about ten years for a repair to be done on the loose rendering on the outside of the building where I live. It's a block of flats on the southside of Glasgow.
The local housing association have known about it but are seemingly not interested in doing anything about it as they are waiting till the 20 years guarentee runs out - they're not daft are they?
Anyway, a chap came out one morning recently, puts his high ladder up and removed some of the flaky bits and a week later I get an automated letter sent out for me to comment on how good was the repair?
You've got to laugh!
PS. I am not allowed to take the matter into my own hands so I'll just have to wait this one out.
End of rant, Brumas.
