Ballyliffin upgrade - a case study

Client: John and Kathleen Farren
Location: Ballyliffen, Co. Donegal
Year completed: 2020
Our 30 year old bungalow needed a revamp in terms of its heating system and exterior physical appearance. Brendan was very helpful and informative when it came to improving the buildings heat efficiency and visual condition. Brendan's workers were diligent and made every effort to produce an attractive end product. I would recommend Brendan to anybody considering an upgrade to their property.

John and Kathleen decided, after much deliberation, that their 1980s home in Ballyliffen, County Donegal, would benefit from  a renovation and energy upgrade.

The house would receive a spacious kitchen extension which included a large glazed roof light and large areas of glazing in the kitchen/diner.

The existing cavity was duly pumped by local contactors and the 100mm EPS platinium 70 insulation added to the external walls. This external wall insulation was rendered with  2 basecoats and a final 1.5mm silicone white render top coat.

The attics were brought up to current standards and the triple glazed windows and new composite doors all ensured the heat loss of the home was at a level that would ensure the new AIR TO WATER heat pump would operate as efficiently as possible on the the new underfloor heating.

The total transformation of the house is completed by the use of local stone features added throughout.

John's own hands on approach throughout the project is reflected in the time it took to complete and his attention to detail ensured a spectacular finish.

The new BER rating coming in at an "A3" will ensure the future energy costs will be kept to a minimum also.
