JOIN­ERY

Join­ery is ba­si­cally the set­ting out, pro­duc­tion and as­sem­bly of stairs, doors, win­dows, floors and built-in fur­ni­ture. Look­ing to your area may not be a bad idea as car­pen­ters and join­ers are keenly aware that word of mouth and a good re­view is vi­tally im­por­tant. KITCHENS

There are avast amount of com­pa­nies spe­cial­iz­ing in fit­ted kitchens – em­ploy­ing 3-D tech­nol­ogy, th­ese com­pa­nies can crete a ‘vir­tual’ model of your kitchen. Fit­ted kitchens are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly af­ford­able – a visit to a show­room is an ex­cel­lent way to ex­pe­ri­ence the feel of a kitchen. BUILDER

Ev­ery­body has heard hor­ror sto­ries of cow­boy builders and shoddy work­man­ship, but by and large Ir­ish builders have a good rep­u­ta­tion and in the cur­rent cli­mate it should be rea­son­ably easy to en­gage a good pro­fes­sional. But do en­sure to check their cre­den­tials and in­sist on ref­er­ences from pre­vi­ous cus­tomers. PAVING AND LAND­SCAP­ING

When build­ing a house, many peo­ple are in­clined to over­look the fact that the out­side will need fin­ish­ing off as well. Land­scap­ing your site as well as lay­ing paths, paving and drive­ways, are ev­ery bit as im­por­tant as get­ting the dé­cor right in­side, so make sure to bud­get for them and find the right ex­perts to do the job prop­erly. PAINT­ING AND DEC­O­RAT­ING

It is al­ways worth hir­ing rep­utable dec­o­ra­tors and painters, hir­ing a painter and dec­o­ra­tor may cost more than do­ing it your­self but it is a real sav­ing in terms of your time, and you can en­joy peace of mind know­ing the fin­ish is go­ing to be great.

The cost of re­dec­o­rat­ing your home de­pends on what is re­quired. ELEC­TRI­CIAN

It is im­por­tant to em­ploy a trusted elec­tri­cian as poor or shoddy work may com­pro­mise the safety of your fam­i­lies. Short-cuts when it comes to wiring will in­vari­ably emerge at some point re­sult­ing in ex­tra cost to fix the dam­age. Check with ECSSA the Reg­is­ter Elec­tri­cal Con­trac­tors of Ire­land.
