Expected lifespans:

  • Kitchen - 20 years
  • Bathrooms - 30 years
  • Boilers - 15 years
  • Electrics - 30 years
  • Windows/door - 30 years
  • Roofs (pitched) - 50-60 years
  • Roofs (flat) - 15 years
  • Lifts - 20-25 years
  • External/communal decorations - approximately every seven years

Safety tests:
