CONTRACTORS are facing the sack over their work on council house improvements.
The threat was revealed after complaints by angry Kirklees tenants.
One tenants' group chairman in Thongsbridge said he was at his "wits end".
A £50m plan to bring council homes up to a better standard is being carried across Kirklees.
But it has not gone well, a meeting of the full council was told.
Angry Tories said work was being botched at many properties.
Complaints include cupboards not fitting properly and leaks in bathrooms.
Some tenants have also protested about the time it has taken to do the work.
Tory councillor Donald Firth said: "A total mess is being made of everything they move into."
The complaints brought an admission that contracting firms have been reprimanded.
Clr Molly Walton, vice-chairman of Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, which manages council houses, said: "Two have been warned.
"We might have to get rid of one of them," she added.
Tory group deputy leader Clr Ken Sims said: "We're just not getting the quality in return for the money that is being spent. It's time it was taken seriously, because it's causing a lot of anguish."
