Hugh Moore, CHI Attics started life in 1992 as a general building company. We very soon found that attic conversions were becoming a major part of our regular work.
At that time there were four attic conversions companies servicing the Dublin area. Only two of those remain in business today.
A year later we dropped all other building work to concentrate exclusively on attic conversions. We placed an advert in the Golden Pages and doubled our work volume immediately. We have since dropped all forms of advertising because we now receive most of our work from recommendations, and from our website.
CHI Attics has a policy of using only the best qualified and most experienced tradesmen, and the result is the very fine reputation we enjoy for excellent work and for our first class after sales service.
Our standards are the highest in the industry and our prices are very fair for the quality of the product we provide. Needless to say we do not try to compete with the many dubious newcomers to the industry.
So, if you believe that the cheapest price is the best value for money, then please don't trouble us with an enquiry.

HOME BUYERS & SELLERS
There is no requirement for home sellers to test or remediate their homes for radon. However, when buying a home, the EPA recommends that you enquire as to whether the home has been tested for radon and factor this into your decision to buy. If the seller reports that a sump was fitted to reduce radon levels, ask your surveyor to check that the sump is still operational.
The acceptable level, or Reference Level, for homes in Ireland is 200 becquerel per cubic metre (Bq/m3).
The World Health Organisation has categorised radon as a carcinogen, in the same group as asbestos and tobacco smoke. In Ireland, up to 250 cases of lung cancer each year are linked to exposure to radon. There is a synergistic effect between radon and tobacco smoke. This means that smokers are at much greater risk of developing radon related lung cancer than non-smokers. There is no scientific evidence linking radon with any other types of respiratory illnesses or other cancers.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. It has no taste, colour or smell. It is formed in the ground by the radioactive decay of uranium which is present in all rocks and soils. You cannot see it, smell it or taste it. It can only be measured with special detectors.
Radon can enter a home from the ground through small cracks in floors and through gaps around pipes or cables. Homes in some parts of the country are more likely to have a radon problem. These parts of the country are called High Radon Areas. You can check our interactive map to see whether a home is in a High Radon Area. Outside radon is diluted to very low levels.

Since 2006, the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) has worked with the gas industry to put in place a new regulatory system to supervise the work of gas installers with respect to safety. This new statutory-based regulatory system has replaced the previous voluntary register operated by Bord Gaìs.
The CER has appointed The Register of Gas Installers of Ireland (R.G.I.I.) as The Gas Safety Supervisory Body (GSSB).
An RGI is an installer who has at least a GID (Gas Installer Domestic) qualification or equivalent in gas safety which makes him/her competent to carry out gas works. He/She will also have a valid insurance and will have paid the annual subscription fee which entitles him/her to be on the register of RGIs and carry an ID Card with a valid date.
Note: Registered Gas Installers (RGI) are separate entities to RGII i.e. businesses or sole traders and RGII have no control over there methods and practices except in relation to Gas Safety. RGII would at all times recommend customers to contact a least three RGI to compare cost, quality and service issues before entering into any contract.

Contact a Tree Professional
Who can I contact to give advice on or carry out work on a tree?
It is important that advice given in respect of trees is correct and from reliable professionals. If you need specialist arboricultural services, it may help to understand the difference between arboricultural consultants and contractors.
Good tree management is about more than just tree work. It is about assessing trees knowledgably, and only then implementing the minimum amount of tree work really necessary. This principle is set out in the British Standard BS 3998: 2010 Tree Work – Recommendations, and in the Tree Council’s publication ‘Amenity Trees & Woodlands: A Guide to their Management in Ireland’.
A competent Arboricultural Consultant is a tree professional who, through relevant education, training and experience, has gained recognised qualifications and expertise in providing management advice about trees. A consultant will usually be independent of contracting (tree surgery) work interests and will be qualified in arboriculture to an equivalent degree level of an architect or engineer. Consultants provide reports on the condition and management of important landscape trees and may recommend and specify tree work where it is required. The work recommended by the consultant can then be tendered for by several contractors. Specific subjects on which arboricultural consultants will commonly advise include tree health, assessing trees for hazard and where appropriate specifying remedial work, investigating cases where trees are alleged to be involved in structural damage to buildings, investigating accidents caused by tree failure, providing advice in relation to planning and tree preservation law, providing advice in relation to trees and development, designing arboricultural features and formulating tree and woodland management plans. Arboricultural consultants can assist law firms, insurance companies, utilities, land developers, local authorities, landscape planners and architects, homeowners, individuals and organisations requiring authoritative knowledge and perspective on trees.
