    Our contractor work will be monitored by our Caseworker who will visit the customer after the work is completed to offer further assistance and check the work. Mears only use fully qualified, vetted, and insured tradesmen who will arrange appointments before visiting the property and will always carry identification.

    Mears also provide a full security survey on a property, offer advice and fit equipment to help people stay safe and secure.

    If a person has been diagnosed with memory issues, Mears will visit their home free of charge and assess what is needed to help them stay safe and well.
