Johnstone's helps to transform Sandwell Homes
Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss and Vinyl Matt paint products
Paint products from Johnstone’s have helped in the transformation of 23,000 homes for Sandwell Homes Partnership.
The transformation is part of Sandwell Homes’ commitment to meet the Decent Homes Standard.
Sandwell Homes is an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) which provides housing management, repairs and maintenance to council-owned properties throughout the Sandwell area of the West Midlands.
Johnstone’s products were chosen to help put the finishing touches to the properties.
Bathrooms and kitchens in the properties were redecorated using Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss and Vinyl Matt paint products.
Aqua Gloss offers low odour qualities, which meant minimal disruption was caused for tenants.
Vinyl Matt has quick drying properties, enabling decorating work to be completed quickly and efficiently.
In addition to using Johnstone’s paint products, tenants were also given the option of using Johnstone’s Decorating Centres’ extensive range of wallcoverings from the Easytex range and the Contractors’ Choice book.
Johnstone’s Vinyl Matt has been awarded the EU Ecolabel, which means its environmental credentials have been independently tested and verified.
Simon Parry, Head of Partnership Management at Sandwell Homes, said: “The high standard of both service and product provided through Johnstone’s has contributed to the Partnership achieving high customer satisfaction throughout the delivery of the Sandwell Decent Homes Programme.”
