"I had been trying to get someone to fix a leak in my roof for quite some time now and McArdle Carpentry & Building Contractors Ltd came to the rescue in the form of Damien and Cathal. They  arrived when they said they would, quickly identified the issue and promptly got it sorted. They were professional and friendly in all their dealings. I couldn’t recommend this firm highly enough. Professionalism at its highest level.

Five-Star in every way! "
