Repairs:Request a repair


Please remember to keep a safe distance from our operatives while they carry out works in your home. If you would prefer our operatives to wear a face covering while they're working in your home, please ask them and they will happily put one on.

Silcoa is our repairs service based in Melksham, that is dedicated to the maintenance of our customers' homes. If something in your home has stopped working or needs attention:

  • Head to our tips and advice pages for information on how to fix the problem. Our tips and advice pages cover all the types of repairs that tenants are responsible for themselves.
  • If you can't find what you're looking for under tips and advice, visit our request a repair pages - it may be that we need to undertake the repair for you. This is also the best route if you need to speak to Selwood Housing about the issue, or if you are in need of a more serious/urgent repair.

If you're looking for information on servicing or planned works (a planned replacement of a kitchen or boiler for example) see caring for your home.
