4 Jan , 2023  

Celebrating 21 years in business, McArdle Carpentry & Building Contractors Ltd in Broomfield, Co. Monaghan delivers high-quality projects at exceptional prices to a growing client-base.

Fronted by Damien McArdle, the company has a wealth of experience across all spectrums of the construction industry, including home renovations, home extensions, new builds, shop fitouts, roof surveying, commercial buildings and housing developments. McArdles has also completed numerous school projects.

Damien, who started out as a sole trader in 2001, employs 15 people directly, including his father Francie. “He has played a big part in our growth and success to date. He’s a builder by trade and has decades of experience in the industry. Construction is strong on my mother’s side of the family too, so it’s something I grew up with,” the affable managing director explains.

Outstanding workmanship, value-for-money and a commitment to working closely with clients are the hallmarks of McArdle Carpentry & Building Contractors. Health & Safety is at the core of the business, and never more so than since the Covid-19 pandemic. From concept to completion, Damien and his top-class team of tradesmen are with you every step of the way, ensuring that your new project is designed and built to your specific needs, and that there are no hidden or extra costs involved. All of their work complies with the highest industry regulations.

Whether your next project is an extension, renovation or shop fitout, McArdle’s will ensure that all aspects of the building processes are smooth, comfortable and hassle-free. 

The Monaghan contractor’s reputation for quality construction and ability to complete projects on time and within the agreed budget is borne out by the high volume of repeat business and referrals it receives from architects, designers and scores of satisfied customers.

The company enjoys an excellent working relationship with sub-contractors, suppliers and design teams alike, and boasts an extensive portfolio of quality contracts. Most of McArdle’s work is concentrated in the Dublin area where it’s currently carrying out a number of home extension, home renovation, fitout, carpentry, damp-proofing projects.

“We have a full order book at the moment,” Damien says.

“We’re working on two house extensions in Cabinteely, are damp-proofing two houses on the North Circular Road and Barnhill Road in Dalkey, fitting out a café in Aungier Street and a ‘Pre ‘63’ Georgian house in Grove Park, Rathmines. In addition to this, we’re revamping Nisbets Catering Equipment’s warehouse in Tallaght and carrying out an attic conversion down the road from us in Castleblayney.”

McArdle Carpentry & Building Contractors’ main suppliers are Dundalk Building Supplies, U Value Insulation in Dublin, McCann’s Builders’ Providers in Dublin, N2 Hardware and RB Coogan Homevalue Hardware (both in Castleblayney). Sub-contractors include Halpenny Electrical in Knockbridge, Dundalk, Grigheat Heating & Plumbing in Doohamlet, Quigley Preservation in Dun Laoghaire and Matropix Painting & Decorating in Dublin.

Architects that McArdles have completed various projects alongside and have built up strong working relationships with include Briaín Colgan of CORE Architects in Sandymount, Rob Curley and Alfonso Bonilla of Maremoto Architects in Drumcondra, Logical Real Estate Consulting in Dublin 2, and Cunningham Design in Castleblayney.

“By employing highly-skilled people, working closely with our architects and designers, and using only the very best building products, we’re able to deliver the highest quality construction to our clients,” Damien adds.

The company’s aim is to combine nature and tradition with innovation and creative design. Renovations, which are its ‘bread and butter’, are delivered with an attention to detail that is second to none. McArdle’s are experienced shopfitting contractors specialising in retail design and shop refurbishment projects. Whether it’s a complete interior fitout, a shop front, an office extension or a bar counter you’re looking for, Damien and his crew can produce high-quality results as standard.

When it comes to detailed maintenance roof surveys, McArdles offer both drone and traditional techniques. The contractor can inspect, analyse, diagnose and report on all types of roof construction.

McArdles are also experts in new home builds, bespoke carpentry and industrial builds. Their new homes are designed to meet 21st century standards and reflect the need to conserve energy and to respect our carbon footprint. With their bespoke carpentry service, you can fit that dream kitchen, create extra space with fitted wardrobes or make vital repairs to your home.

As professional building contractors, McArdles have got everything covered to make your industrial / commercial project run seamlessly from start to finish. They’re big enough to cope with all kinds of projects, but small enough to provide that all-important personal touch.

Asked how he is coping with the spiralling cost of building materials, Damien replies: “We have a great relationship with our suppliers who keep us briefed on any price increases that may be coming. We’re able to hold a bit of stock as well, which has always been of great benefit to us, and more so in most recent times.”

Damien would like to take this opportunity to thank his clients, suppliers, sub-contractors and design teams for their continued support as well as his staff for their hard work, dedication and skill. For a free consultation, make sure to
