An attic above the rest…

Matt of The Attic Man talks to Build & Renovate

Story Highlights
  • "We want to give our clients the best service and advice we can."
  • "We want to assure our clients when an attic conversion is carried out that they have the comfort in knowing they are going to maximise the energy efficiency of their home."

The Attic Man has been converting attics all over Dublin for families who wish to turn their empty roof space into an extra living area.

This company has completed literally thousands of attic conversions over the last thirty years and gained invaluable experience in the construction process as well as ensuring that all their customers receive excellent service.

The business is family-run, and we’ve been in operation for more than 30 years, specializing in attic conversions. I’m a Quantity Surveyor by profession, which helps ensure that our customers not only get great building service but also value for their money without compromising on quality. Our qualified tradesmen have worked with us for 20 years or more. We always strive to be a leader in this competitive industry, explained Matt.

“We also have our own in-house BER assessor and advisor as we move towards sustainability and energy efficiency of homes. Some of the questions we get asked include how an attic conversion affects the BER rating, and what needs to be done to sustain or maintain it. This is a topic at the forefront of our clients’ minds at the moment, and we want to assure them that we can advise and direct them on maximizing the energy efficiency of their home with an attic conversion.

“In terms of the BER rating, we’re trying to get a feel for clients’ needs because everyone thinks they want to sustain the highest or current BER rating.

With attic conversions, depending on the head height a person will have in their attic, there will have to be a compromise in smaller-sized attics in terms of insulation, etc.

If you decide upon thicker insulation, you will be sacrificing space.”

“When clients compare quotes, I always advise them to ensure that they’re comparing apples with apples and to consider the quality of materials used instead of comparing quotes based only on a final figure that may include using inferior products.

“90% of our business comes from referrals, and that has been the case for the last 30 years as we are known to provide our clients with the best service,” concluded Matt.
