A solid reputation for doing quality new-builds, extensions, renovations and restorations

About Denis Buckley

In business since 1888, Cork builder Denis Buckley has built up a solid reputation in the construction industry for quality. He specialises in new-builds, extensions, renovations and restorations, and is fully insured.

A native of Carrigtwohill, Co Cork, Denis has 'building' in the blood. He followed his father into the business and works closely with his brother.

Although he mostly focuses on new-builds, Denis has found that people are more likely to invest in their own homes now rather than selling and buying afresh.

I have great vision and see the finished product at the earliest stages. Not alone do I bring a personal touch to my work, but I am always willing to amend plans if possible along the way to make your project appear even better.

Good news for homeowners... a tax credit of up to €4,050

It gives you as a home owner an income tax credit of 13.5% on home improvement expenditure of between €5,000 and €30,000. This applies to extensions and renovations to the home, window-fitting, plumbing, tiling and plastering. Read more about this initiative here.
