GPD responds to 96FM ‘Opinion Line’ outreach
You can’t put a price on independence. 2016 was a terrible year, made even worse for Veronica and Phil, as Veronica’s efforts to make her home wheelchair-friendly for her husband Phil were put on hold due to defective craftsmanship on works carried out at her property.
Phil is an ex-tradesman who suffered a stroke in 2016 with life-changing results. His wife, Veronica, wanted to make life a little easier for him, and received a Grant to put an extension at the rear of the house so that Phil would have his own downstairs bedroom and shower area on the ground floor, as he is now in a wheelchair.
Shortly after the renovation works were completed, Veronica noticed some defects and requested the builder to fix the defects. Unfortunately, it did not work out for Veronica and the only route available to her was to seek legal advice. She discovered that the legal costs would be prohibitive and her only hope was to contact 96FM to seek help with her situation. She told her story on the PJ Coogan show – leaking pipes, radiators that didn’t work, as well as an issue with the roof. In total, Veronica had spent close to €50,000 trying to make the house wheelchair-friendly.
GPD are more than happy to help Veronica and Phil. The company is very experienced in this area of work. Veronica’s problems with the house will now be fixed free of charge, courtesy of GPD. Eamon from GPD spoke with Veronica and re-assured her that she doesn’t have anything to worry about. Thanks to 96FM, PJ and Deirdre for alerting us to this special case. Click here for the broadcast.
