What Our Customers Are Saying

We have used First Class Building and Carpentry services for several projects over the last few years and have always been extremely satisfied with their workmanship and over all competence. Quotations were very competitive when requested and we would have no hesitation in commending the company for big or small jobs. We would always use them again ourselves for any future projects.

First Class Building was commissioned to fully renovate and extend our home in Clontarf, Dublin 3. Delivered on time and to a very high standard, we would highly recommend Darrin and his team.

At the initial consultation, Darrin made some practical recommendations to the structural plans that had a positive budgetary impact. His budget consciousness continued throughout the project and he always had a recommendation or solution to hand when sourcing additional suppliers, fixture or fittings.

Darrin excels at project management delivering results on time and resolving any issues or queries at pace. We were particularity impressed by the level of organisation and detail on site at all times, with all up to date plans and references to hand.

Darrin’s experience and creativity in maximising space is highly evident and he has a superb eye for detail. We benefited from this many times from maximising space in stud walls, attic eaves and under the stairs to installing ans electric fireplace to give purpose to an obvious structural pillar in the centre of one of the room, He was always open to hearing suggestions or “Pinterest” ideas. This resulted in the creation of concealed pull-out presses in both bathrooms to maximise space and the successful renovation of the old fireplace, making it more contemporary at minimal cost.

We were extremely happy with the level of service provided before, during and after the project and would have no hesitation in recommending Darrin and his team

This is the first time we have got any substantial work done to our house but I cannot say enough good things about the end to end experience with Darrin & his team.

From a customer point of view its the simple things that count, everything was done when it was supposed to be done, the team were always on time, there were no surprises at any stage, we were constantly appraised of progress and everything that was asked of the job and more was done to an incredibly high standard, the attention to detail and quality of finish simply was outstanding. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending First Class Building to anybody who is considering getting work done and would happily act as a reference.

First Class are first class. Darrin and his crew are brilliant to deal with, exceptionally professional and courtese to me as a client and to all those they engage with. To try and articulate how good the Team and what they bring its probably best to talk about what we asked them to do and how we engaged them.

Firstly, we are were doing a major renovation, attic conversation, remodelling second floor and putting in an ensuite, extending both the front and back and back of the house which included new kitchen. The house needed to be stripped down and rewired also.
We ran a tender process and First Class were the most competitive and also the best in terms timescales to deliver. I could see excellent references sites on Darrin’s work so knew they could deliver on what they said. We had engaged an architect and had an idea of what we were after.

The value Darrin brought to the project extended well beyond just the build the actual build, he picked up areas of the design that could be altered to work better, had a keen of colour scheme and ensuring everything worked together and was able to offer alternative suppliers who could fittings at lower price points.

Even after we moved in and need a few things adjusted or changed Darrin and Team always available to help and resolve. These guys thrive on doing top quality work at a low cost, not something you say too often in Ireland these days.

Overall, highly recommend the services of First Class carpentry.
