Social Housing Drainage Specialists

Managing a portfolio of properties can be difficult, juggling multiple requests and responsibilities all at once– so when you receive a call from your tenant telling you there is a blocked drain or burst pipe, it can disrupt your usual day to day activity.

Blocked drains and burst pipes can be an occupational hazard, if not dealt with quickly and effectively. They can cause inconvenience to both you and your tenants, result in high costs and lead to dissatisfaction among tenants if it begins to disrupt their living habits. Fortunately, we are here to help!

As experts, we understand the requirements of social housing. We are responsive and deliver our services with minimal disturbance to residents, alleviating any stress for your tenants and letting your usual activity resume.

Experienced in management systems, pricing and reporting tools

We understand the need within the social housing sector for the correct pricing systems and reporting tools to be used. At Metro Rod, we have knowledge of using third party systems that are unique to individual housing associations and have also developed a bespoke reporting tool which gives us the capability to deliver insightful reports with complete overviews of work activity direct to you.

Our ability to seamlessly use SOR (Schedule of Rates) codes, management systems and reporting tools is what makes Metro Rod the preferred drainage contractor for many social housing associations.
