R Crowley, Castleknock (2016)

We had an extension (designed &) built by Gary and his team. The result is even better than we imagined. He and his team were friendly, tidy and put in long days to get the job done quickly. What we also found refreshing was both Gary and Deirdres prompt responses and attention to any matters or queries we had. Would recommend Alpine Sunrooms.

 


 

D & N Gaffney, Portmarnock (2016)

We couldn’t be more proud of our beautiful home, all thanks to Gary, Deirdre and the team. Our neighbours all commented about what hard workers Gary and the guys were, and we would have to agree. We could honestly never have imagined that our house would turn out to be as spectacular as it is now. We are happier than we could ever have dared to hope for.

Over the Christmas we spent an incredible amount of time in the house and it really hit home how fantastic the work is, it has really changed how we use our home and we are incredibly thankful to you for this.

To be honest, the work speaks for itself, and everyone who comes to visit comments on the amazing design and finish. We will continue to recommend you to ALL of our friends.

 


 

C Magee, Cabra (2016)

'Gary built a kitchen extension for us in November 2015. We were working on a modest budget without an architect, so we found Gary's input and advice invaluable. From the beginning he was enthusiastic and helpful about our project - always keen to help us realise the ideas that we had. During the build, Gary was on site every day. He and his team worked incredibly quickly and efficiently and completed the build ahead of schedule.  We love our new kitchen - I really couldn't recommend him highly enough.'

 


 

E Doheny, Stillorgan (2015)

'Gary and his team from Alpine Sunrooms completed a full kitchen extension in our house Sept 2015.  Having heard lots of horror stories around extension timelines from friends, we were given a month lead time from Gary (other builders had quoted us 8 weeks!), Alpine finished the extension in 3 weeks. Everything finished to the highest standard, attention to detail excellent and follow up snagging etc carried out immediately. I could not recommend Alpine highly enough and would definitely use the team again for any other work we may need carried out'

 


 

S Scott, Leopardstown (2015)

"We are very happy with the second floor extension and attic conversion completed by Gary and his team. From our initial meeting with Gary we gained an immediate confidence in him (which was assisted by the fact that he is a qualified engineer) and throughout the project he was professional and approachable. He started the job on time and finished slightly ahead of schedule even though we thought the timetable provided looked quite optimistic. This was great as we stayed in situ throughout the build. Each morning his team arrived early and we were pleasantly surprised every day when we returned from work at the amount of progress made. On Gary’s suggestion we made some amendments to our plans and on completion it became clear that they had very significantly improved the finished product. The extension was produced to a high standard, the process was managed very well and the costs were competitive. Consequently, I would not hesitate to recommend Gary to anyone considering a similar project.

 


 

D Eagney, Malahide (2015)

‘After receiving excellent recommendations from family friends we contacted Gary with a view to converting a kitchen/dining room/conservatory area to an open living area, as well as upgrading two bathrooms at our home. Once we met with Gary we were fully confident that he would be the best person to look after our project. After we explained what we were looking to do he went through the various options with us in detail, answering any questions that we might have as well as providing useful tips and advice. He reverted with a detailed plan and clear quotation within a short number of days, and arrived on schedule on the arranged date to complete the works. The Alpine Sunroom team were at all times professional, courteous, accommodating and efficient. They always treated ourselves and our neighbours with respect. We were delighted that the project was completed ahead of schedule, on budget and to a high quality finish. Gary worked solely on our project at the time and was always on hand to deal with any queries that we had. Whatever was promised and agreed, was delivered. Nothing was ever a problem.We would have no hesitation in recommending Gary and his team and have been happy to do so to family and friends’  

 


M Kennedy, Rathfarnham (2014)

‘Our build, a large kitchen extension and a complete overhaul of the building, was completed inside the very challenging 16 week programme.  Alpine Sunrooms proved a true partner in both the design and build phases offering practical advice and helpful suggestions throughout and handled all aspects of the work efficiently and professionally.  We are delighted with our new home’

 


 

J & M Sheil, Ballsbridge (2014)

Gary impressed us from the moment he walked through our door to see the job. He impressed us because of the attention with which he listened to our needs, made note of them and offered sensible suggestions; no waffling, no flights of fancy, just sound advice.

Work began on the dot at the set date and time, and finished ahead of schedule. Throughout the renovation, no matter how many surprise visits we paid to the site, he was always there, ready to show us the progress and explain what he was doing in clear terms. Working with him became an interesting learning process in which we were constantly involved. Something should also be said about how pleasant Gary has been to our neighbours, who are still praising his attentiveness and kindness.

Throughout the renovation, Gary has never skimped on materials, techniques or labour. With great skills and technical know-how, he has transformed a space that was small, awkward, dark and poorly insulated, both thermally and acoustically, into a warm, bright, quiet, spacious home that is as stylish and elegant as it is functional and comfortable. We could not be happier with the result. Thank you, Gary.

Last but by no means least, thank you Deirdre for helping us navigate the jungle of tax reliefs, government grants, VAT issues, BER ratings and much more, and for being so prompt in finding materials for us when we did not know where to turn to, even at short notice. You are truly remarkable. What a fantastic team!

 



When we decided to get a job done on our house, a neighbour recommended Gary Glackin. We chose Gary’s quote because his was the cheapest but also his work was so highly recommended.

During the build, we had no reason to regret our choice. The work was done fast and well. Gary was always available to discuss progress and to supervise the quality of the work. When problems arose, it was clear that Gary was qualified to work out professional solutions.

Our job consisted of demolishing internal and external walls, opening a new French window, moving kitchen services ready for the kitchen fitters, tiling, putting in wooden floors throughout the ground floor with underfloor insulation, building a patio and installing external insulation all around the house.

All the work was finished to a high standard. We are especially delighted with the external insulation, as Gary's workmen were careful to recreate all the features of the house. The house is now warm and comfortable inside and looks really good outside.

We found Gary to be considerate and courteous and trustworthy in his dealings with us, as were his workmen at all times.

We are delighted to have the chance to recommend Gary and his team of craftsmen from Alpine Sunrooms to any future customers. We cannot speak highly enough of the quality of their work.

We contacted Gary early in 2012, having been very impressed by his work in a friend's house. We needed to totally renovate our kitchen, including removing the old floor, insulating the space underneath, and the walls, laying down a new floor, taking out a couple of walls, putting double doors between the kitchen and diningroom, replacing the patio door, adding a large window, as well as all the replastering, tiling and other works which went with all that. We also needed more insulation, replastering and a new radiator in our computer room, which had originally been a garage. Finally we asked Gary to insulate and floor our attic.

Gary gave us estimates for every stage and part of the work, which we felt were very reasonable, but told us he could not get to us until August. He then contacted us, to give us a date, arrived on that date, and he and the team worked steadily until they had completed the work, which took more or less a month. They arrived every morning between 8 and 8.30 and they worked til 5.30 or 6 every evening. Gary was always available to come and discuss any issues we had. He- and all the team- were good humoured, very easy to have around the house, and all their work was of the highest standard. We are extremely happy with the result and we now have a totally new, bright , open, living area, a warmer and better laid out computer room, also a well insulated, floored and shelved attic.

We would be more than happy to talk to anyone who may have any further questions about our experience with Gary and his team.

Gary Glackin and his team carried out preparatory refurbishment works on our kitchen, installed internal insulation and then zoned the central heating system in October 2012. Gary was punctual and considerate in the way he went about the work. His team was effective and hard working and very helpful during their four weeks on the job. We are pleased with the finished work and we appreciated some of his suggestions along the way. Difficulties emerged during the project but we soon learned that nothing is a problem for Gary. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gary who was meticulous and professional throughout.

To whom it may concern

We contacted Gary Glackin of Alpine Sunrooms after being granted planning permission for an extension to the rear, two storey extension to the side and porch to the front of our property.

We had previously seen a build he completed and were very impressed with his method of working. We were anxious to get a very reliable contractor who took pride in their work. At our first meeting Gary discussed the build with us and gave some alternative suggestions based on his experience from his extensive portfolio of work. We were happy to adopt Gary’s suggestions. He put together a timeline for the build together with deliverables and payment schedules so everybody knew what was expected.

Gary managed all aspects of the build so we had a single point of contact and all the trades reported to him with everybody turning up at the appointed time. Concentrating on one build at a time Gary gave our project his full attention and was on site every day. His qualification as a civil engineer gave us great peace of mind. During the course of the build we asked for additions and amendments and Gary was accommodating and flexible with all requests. He has an ability to immediately see if the changes will have an effect on other areas of the build. Gary’s attention to detail can be seen in all aspects of the build.

He has put together a great team of people and Gary and his team were at our property at 8am every morning, working until 6pm each day. They are a hardworking, diligent and extremely knowledgeable team. It was a pleasure to work with Gary and his team. The project was delivered ahead of time and on budget.

We are delighted with the finished product and have no hesitation in recommending Gary Glackin and his team at Alpine sunrooms to anyone thinking of doing any construction work.

We had a very outdated sunroom which we never used as too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. It needed to be upgraded, and we did not want the expense of extending the area, so we were looking for ideas to make the most use of what we had and to create a feeling of space.

 After getting various different quotes, we decided to give the job to Gary from Alpine Sunrooms. When he called to see the sunroom, he listened to what we wanted, and came up with some excellent ideas and changes to the area that no one else had suggested. He created an amazing new Sunroom on our existing foundations, extending from our living room, with triple glazing, an apex tiled roof with 2 velux roof windows, and full length glass surround opening out into the garden.

We are amazed at the difference that the sunroom has added to our living room. Instead of having a room which was never used, we now have a lovely place to sit and relax. We did put a radiator into the room, but with the triple glazing and insulation and the natural sunlight in the room, we actually never needed to use it.

I found Gary and his team extremely professional and punctual, arriving at 8am and leaving in the evening, having cleaned up from the work that day. I have no hesitation in recommending Gary and his team at Alpine Sunrooms.

To Whom It May Concern

I contacted Gary Glackin of Alpine Sunrooms earlier this year with a view to adding a sunroom and small extension to my home. Alpine Sunrooms had been recommended to me by a family member. Gary called out at the appointed time and we had a long and detailed chat about the work. I found Gary very good at listening to what I required and interpreting my ideas whilst injecting a few of his own suggestions. I was also reassured by his qualification as a Civil Engineer. Once we had agreed on a plan I was very happy and confident that the work would be carried out to a high standard, on time and most importantly on budget. When the works commenced Gary and his team arrived every morning at 8am and finished at approximately 6pm. Although renovating a home can be a very stressful experience I found that Alpine Sunrooms made the process as painless as possible and I was absolutely delighted with the result.

The work is now completed and I could not be happier with the quality of the workmanship and the professional way it was carried out. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alpine Sunrooms to anyone considering adding a sunroom or extension to their home.

Hi Gary, This note is long overdue.

In November last year when you and I initially spoke about plans for a sunroom, in reality I didn’t really think I would go through with it. I just didn’t fancy taking on a project of that level by myself as I just did not have any expertise/knowledge of what the project would entail. Whilst the living space in my new house was limited and I could recognise and appreciate the potential was there to extend, I shied away from doing anything about it. I needn’t have worried – you had all the expertise needed and your plans and ideas gave me the confidence to just go for it. From the start of the project from literally preparing my front garden from any damage as a result of the work (my neighbours still comment on this!!) to the finished sunroom, I could not have believed that a project of this scale could run so smoothly. Your supervision, input, advice, flexibility, attention to detail and incredible team, ensured that the sunroom was completed in 3 weeks. The standard of work is second to none and the sheet of paper I took out to note the snag list is still blank!

I have no hesitation in recommending Gary and his team at Alpine Sunrooms to anyone considering taking on a similar project. The whole experience was hassle free. I am absolutely thrilled with my sunroom and even more thrilled with pain free and professional way in which it came about.

Hi Gary

Working with Alpine Sunrooms Ltd was a pleasure. Gary was easily able to interpret our ideas and explain each stage of the process. He started the job when he said he would and finished ahead of schedule. That, combined with the highest quality workmanship made it a pleasure for us. We have no hesitation in recommending Gary and his team"

Regards
