Meet the Expert: Emergency Home Repairs with BuildTech

In the event of an emergency home repair, Onlinetradesmen has qualified and rated members available to assist during the Covid-19 lockdown.

BuildTech is one of our qualified and rated members, who continues to provide a range of emergency home repair services including 24/7 electrical, plumbing and heating assistance across the wider Dublin area during the Covid-19 period.

This month, we ask BuildTech to advise homeowners on what qualifies as an emergency home repair, plus common emergency home repair issues as well as what a homeowner can expect when a BuildTech professional attends to a home emergency call-out during Covid-19.

 

Onlinetradesmen (OLT): What is classified as an emergency home repair?

BuildTech: Emergency home repair as classified by the Government of Ireland’s list of essential services during Covid-19 lockdown is the delivery of repair services to homes on an emergency call-out basis including electrical, plumbing, window repair and roof leaks.

 

OLT: What are the common emergency repair issues around the home?

BuildTech: The need for a home emergency call-out can range from tripping electrical circuits to heating and hot water issues. Our qualified professionals are also available to attend to burst or broken pipes, ceiling leaks, boiler failures and overflowing toilets.

 

OLT: What can a homeowner expect when they request and receive an emergency call-out from BuildTech?

BuildTech: We operate a 24/7 365 day emergency call-out service. As a dedicated service, homeowners are guaranteed someone will be on hand to take their call – no matter what time of day the call is received.

Following the request for an emergency call-out, we aim to have a qualified trade professional on-site within one hour of receiving a call.

When one of our trade professionals arrives on-site, they are equipped with and required to wear Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) including gloves, facemasks, antibacterial wipes and surface sanitizers.

While on-site and during repair, all our trade professionals are required to practice social distancing as per HSE.ie guidelines – thereby maintaining a 2-metre rule from all members of the household as well as with any other trade professionals who might also be required to attend the repair job.

Upon completion of the home repair, our trade professionals will clean and disinfect areas of the working area before departure.

 

OLT: In normal times, what other services does BuildTech offer?

BuildTech: We provide a one-stop-shop for all property maintenance jobs including general maintenance as well as electrical, plumbing, insulation and renovations.

BuildTech is a registered contractor under the Better Homes Energy Homes Scheme, a registered electrical contractor with RECI, and we are fully insured for public and employers liability as well as Contractors All Risk Insurance.

You can view BuildTech’s ratings here and contact their emergency team during normal working hours on 01-8307219 or out of hours on 087-7218726.
