George Jones is a successful painting contractor who specialises in providing pre-paint repairs and cyclical decorations to housing associations and local authorities for social housing stock, including general needs properties, blocks of flats, and high-rise buildings. We understand the importance of maintaining these properties to a high standard, and are committed to delivering reliable, efficient, and cost-effective services to our clients. Our customer centric approach is tailored to residents, with operatives and management focused upon maintaining friendly, experienced and skilled teams who will always treat their homes with the utmost care and diligence, throughout our time on-site.
One of the key aspects of our work with housing associations and local authorities is a focus on pre-paint repairs. Our teams are supremely experienced in identifying and addressing any necessary repairs before beginning the painting process. This includes repairing any cracks, holes, or other damage to the walls, ceilings, and woodwork. By addressing these repairs before painting, we are able to ensure that the finished product looks great and lasts longer, reducing the need for additional repairs in the future and further disruption to residents and our clients.
In addition to pre-paint repairs, George Jones also provides cyclical decorations as part of contracts for housing associations and local authorities. This involves painting the exterior and interior of the properties on a regular schedule, typically every 5-10 years. We work closely with clients to develop a schedule that works for them and ensures that the work is completed efficiently and within budget, following specifications in-line with manufacturers guidelines. As Dulux Connect, Johnstone’s Elite and Crown Paints Professional contractors, we have extensive knowledge of the latest products and what is suited best for each substrate to maximise efficiency and lifecycle throughout.
One of the challenges of working with social housing stock is the wide range of property types that must be painted. Our teams are experienced in painting a variety of properties, including general needs properties, blocks of flats, and high-rise buildings. This experience allows the team to approach each project with confidence, knowing that they have the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver a high-quality finished product. Operatives are PASMA trained for the building of mobile towers, IPAF trained for the operations of MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms), giving clients and residents the confidence that operatives are highly skilled in navigating complex machinery whilst completing works safely and diligently.
Safety is also a top priority for our teams when working on social housing stock. They have strict safety protocols in place, and all team members are trained to follow these protocols at all times. This ensures that the project is completed safely, and that there is no risk of injury to workers or damage to property. Overseen by our SHEQ Department, we have a top-down approach which is filtered down from management to operatives daily, following our CHAS and ISO:45001 accredited health and safety management systems.
Efficiency is another key factor in our success as when working upon redecoration projects. Our well-planned schedules in place for each project, and teams work diligently to complete each project within an allocated timeframe working to programmes agreed with our clients. With systems in place for tracking progress in real-time, we are able to make adjustments to the schedule as needed to ensure that the project is completed on time, as well as to budget.
Quality control is also a top priority for George Jones and our teams. We have processes in place for ensuring that each and every stage of the project is monitored and completed to a high standard of quality. This includes checking the surface preparation, ensuring that the paint is applied evenly and smoothly, and checking for any imperfections in the finished product. By focusing on quality control, we are able to deliver a finished product that meets the highest standards of quality in our industry.
We are committed to ongoing training and development of operatives and management across the country, from apprentice to senior management, our focus on investing in the latest training and development of team members, which is critical to our success. We stay up to date with the latest trends and technologies in the industry, offering training on all aspects of our business from health and safety, customer service and specialisms within our industry too.
