Hi folks, recently we carried out a house painting cost survey on some painters on our website. The question we asked was, how much would it cost excluding VAT to paint an average 3 bed semi inside and out.

Storms seem to be getting more regular in Ireland these days. It seems like there’s hardly a month that goes by that we don’t have some sort of a storm or a storm warning. The West of the country usually gets it the worst as most of the weather comes in from the Atlantic but when it does come from the East, it really let’s us have it, as we experienced during Storm Ophelia in 2017. If you can prepare in advance for a storm it will hopefully minimise any damage to your property and help you to cope better if anything goes wrong. Here are some tips to protect your home in the event of a storm and to help you deal with the problems that it may cause:-

We asked them to give a rough price for a 50m2 floating laminate wooden floor, labour only including removing and refitting the skirting boards and architraves. In addition to this, we asked if they could give us an idea on the range of material prices and if they had any tips for getting the best job done. We have attached a sample of the replies we received below:-
recently we carried out a quick survey of bathroom renovation costs from tradesmen listed on our site. We asked them for rough prices for tiling a bathroom floor to ceiling and replacing the sanitary ware (labour only) with a minimum and maximum price. We also asked if they could give a minimum and maximum price for tiles and sanitary ware if they had time. The bathroom size we gave them was 2.40metres x 1.80metres.

in a recent report from the HSA, it reported an increase in construction site fatalities from 2016 to 2017. So I thought it might be a good opportunity to begin the year with an emphasis on construction safety in the home. I have covered this topic before but I think it’s important to review it again for anyone who may not be aware of the responsibilities of homeowners in relation to construction safety in the home. These responsibilities are covered under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013. I would also encourage tradesmen to read this article and to check out the checklist at the bottom of this article and in the HSA Guide. If you are a tradesman, try to ensure that you can answer ‘yes’ to the relevant questions in the checklist and that you carry a file with relevant certs and policies to support your claims.
