Ahern – New Build – Glanmire
A work colleague told me about O’Gorman Homes and we would have to say from the word go we felt we were in the hands of a professional. Following site visits of their on-going works, discussions with other Clients, and their building history; we felt confident we were dealing with him as a competent and capable builder. We wanted a quality job, completed to program and within our budget and O Gorman Homes delivered on that.
During the construction we made changes and Declan advised up front on the commercial implications and suitable alternatives that met with our requirements. Declan has always been very responsive in dealing with any issues which arose even long after we moved in. Six years on we have no issues and we have recommended him to others.
Keane – Extension – Passage West
We would like to thank O’Gorman Homes and their team for delivering our house extension. The added space has transformed the house and certainly improved our daily lifestyle. They were very helpful right through from design to the finishing touch. The quality of workmanship has been superb throughout. Everyone who worked on our project was polite and extremely knowledgeable and we really appreciated the good communication we had with the team which helped make things run smoothly. It was particularly helpful as we remained in the house while most of the work went on and the communication and consideration shown was lovely. We clearly made the right choice of builder when we chose O’Gorman Homes and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a quality builder and we have already passed on their number to several friends.
O’Connors – Refurbishment – Douglas
When we met with O’Gorman Homes I was very impressed with their professionalism. We met on several occasions prior to commencement of the refurbishment to discuss the different options open to us with regard to altering the existing floor plan, maximising energy efficiency and internal finishes. Declan gave numerous suggestions many of which we adopted and they have made the functionality and enjoyment of our home surpass all our expectations.
We were very impressed with their attention to detail, how they listened to us and what we wanted to achieve with our home. Declan gave us a lot of help and advice when we needed to make decisions and demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of building work and sourcing high quality materials right from the first meeting. They really did turn a house in to a home.
As part of the decision making process we reviewed and met with many builders but we really liked Declan’s approach as he took us to see properties that he completed and allowed us to speak in private to the owners about their experience. This was something no other builder did for us and was the major deciding factor for us to go with Declan as we could see a finished product. I have many friends who went through this process before and thought the idea of seeing previous jobs was an excellent idea and always asked why many more builders’ don’t use this approach?
Heffernan – Refurbishment – Sundays Well
We completely redesigned the interior of our home in 2013. We wanted an open plan kitchen/living area, with lots of storage space, a complete change of layout in the bedroom spaces and replacement of the old and inefficient heating system. O’Gorman Homes were recommended to us by a friend and, after viewing some of their other projects and doing a walk-through of our home with Declan, we knew we had found the right building team for us.
They didn’t just do what we asked…they talked to us about how we use the space and came up with some great ideas, including moving a doorway just a little more than we’d planned to create a storage alcove in an otherwise useless space, relocating the water cylinder to provide a sizeable larder and figuring out the perfect solution for the hearth/TV corner!
We were also concerned about energy efficiency in our 1970’s home. Declan and his team had the knowledge and expertise to give us a number of options and they helped us choose the most effective way to use this part of the budget to best advantage. We have reduced our energy bills and our home is much more comfortable as a result.
O’Gorman Homes ensured the project was as stress free as possible and they completed the job on time and within budget. Our home feels like a completely different space now and we love it! We are more than happy to recommend Declan and his team at O’Gorman Homes.
Shaw – Granny Flat – Grenagh
We decided to build a granny flat to the rear of our property. Having received several quotations we met with Declan and he took all the stress and hassle out of project. He advised us on ways to improve the floor layout in order to optimise the space while staying focused on our needs in making the space work for our individual requirements.
Declan advised on the best energy efficient options available to us as well as ensuring maximum light into the build. All staff members were easy to talk to and nothing was ever a problem. We would have no hesitation in recommending O’Gorman Homes to anyone considering building a new home or adding to their existing home.
Long Distributors – Commercial Refurbishment – New Mallow Road
We required a complete fit-out of a warehouse unit into offices, reception area, canteen, warehouse storage and WC including shower unit. Not only did O’Gorman Homes do a fantastic job but Declan worked closely with us and made worthy suggestions and recommendations throughout the building process from the floor plan layout to flooring and joinery selection.
I found their approach both dynamic and innovative and are a fantastic company to work with. The quality of the workmanship is of an excellent standard and it is clear to see why they only use the very best tradesmen and have a great understanding of their clients’ requirements. This level of service and detail removed all the stress from decision making and I could trust Declan’s team to come with the right solution. We found Declan and his team to be courteous, competent and professional from the initial job briefing right through to completion and would have no hesitation in recommending O’Gorman Homes.
