Renovations & Extensions
Planning an extension or renovation? We offer general building and construction services for property extensions, attic and garage conversions, sun rooms and granny flats.
We also manage office and commercial property upgrades, such as the division of offices and improvements to reception areas. Our experienced team of qualified tradespeople provide a hassle free, one-stop approach to your renovation or extension, with all work being fully certified and delivered in alignment with current building regulations.
Property extensions are sought for a variety of purposes from creating an extra bedroom and bathroom to adding an extra storey to a property. Our team works closely with your architect and engineer to carry out all aspects of your extension build from block work, plastering, wiring and plumbing to widening doorways and installing roof lights for extra style and comfort.
We work closely with structural engineers to convert attic spaces for extra living areas. We ensure the additional space is properly ventilated, fire compliant and structurally sound. We can also move pipework, fit stairs and paint and decorate in your desired style to create the living space you desire.
A sun room is best enjoyed when situated near the living room or kitchen. Property owners often choose to convert their conservatory to a sunroom with standard block walls, large windows and double doors, enabling them to enjoy the warmth and comfort of this extra living space. Our multi-skilled trades team can carry out the conservatory conversion or new build of your sunroom to create a warm, spacious room the whole family can enjoy.
Garage conversions are a great way of creating additional living space or a separate room for guests. Our qualified team of tradespeople can re-wire your garage for lighting and appliances, and plumb the space for bathroom facilities. We also lay flooring, plaster walls, ensure proper ventilation, and paint and decorate to make the space work for you.
Typically, granny flats are built onto the side of a house and feature one or two small bedrooms, a kitchenette, and a small bathroom. Granny flats must be compliant with fire and building regulations and have appropriate access and escape routes. Our team provides the full suite of services needed for the construction of a fully certified granny flat according to current building standards.
Pillars, stone walls, fences, foot paths and patios are among the services our team provides for property entrances. All our work is fully certified and delivered according to current building standards by a qualified team of tradespeople.
Internal alterations for either aesthetic or functional purposes typically involve a change of purpose where one space is converted for use as another. This includes changing a living room to a bedroom, widening corridors, installing double doors and creating storage rooms. Our experienced team can create the ideal space according to your needs.
Our qualified electricians are experienced in re-wiring properties for a variety of purposes. In particular, older properties can now take advantage of technological advances that provide enhanced lighting and additional sockets for electronic appliances. We can also rewire alarm systems and install cameras for security purposes.
Re-plumbing is required wherever plumbed systems such as a shower or toilet are moved to another location, or when an ageing system is replaced. Our experienced team provides fully-certified plumbing works in residential and commercial properties according to your needs.
Windows & Doors
While windows and doors are an important part of a property’s styling, they also play a key role in insulating a home from the elements. We supply and fit a range of internal and external windows and doors for style and comfort and are registered with the SEAI for home energy upgrades.
Many property owners consider removing the chimney from their older property to create extra living space in their home. On average, when a chimney is removed, an additional 3x3m2 of space is created which is ideal for opening up an area. Chimney removals typically involve the removal of the fireplace situated back-to-back in each room along with the external studding, and may also involve re-roofing works.
House to Flat Conversion
The conversion of large houses to flats for rental purposes requires strict compliance with current building regulations. This includes a comprehensive engineer’s report and fire survey to demonstrate the property is compliant. Our work is fully certified and carried out by our in-house team to give you peace-of-mind that minimum requirements have been achieved prior to letting your property.
Internal and external walls often require insulation upgrades to enhance energy-efficiency, sound proofing and fire proofing. Our experienced in-house team can provide fully certified insulation for your property according to your requirements. We are registered with the SEAI’s home energy grant scheme which is designed to help property owners achieve enhanced energy efficiency and may provide financial assistance with your insulation upgrade.

I look forward to working with Premier Irish Homes again in the future
They created a great attic storage solution for us by inserting shelving in the trusses. The team also fixed door fittings and closings, wall mounted a TV, repositioned light fittings, plumbed an American Fridge-Freezer and changed a tumble-dryer from condenser to being plumbed. They also cleaned all the windows inside and out and power-hosed the surrounds of the house and the patio.
The work was done to the highest standard. What was most impressive was the cleanliness of the house after the works were completed. Workmen took their boots off on carpets, laid sheets down where needed and even vacuumed the spaces when they were finished. From the initial inspection right through to the completion of the work everyone we dealt with was very helpful, friendly and professional. Importantly the cost was the price that was quoted and there were no hidden extras. I will use Premier Property for any future needs.
