Haigney Restoration Ltd. is a family based business which has been in operation for over 40 years. Our co-founder Pat Haigney was the first trademan to start using lime in the 1990’s and this kick-started our company.

Our site managers have completed PSCS courses and we employ a safety consultant on all our projects. Health and Safety plays a major part in our working day..

There are two sides to our business, General Contracting and Specialist Lime Work.


General Contracting:

Our portfolio includes refurbishment, extensions and new builds. We are particularly sensitive to conserving existing features where possible and are energy efficient conscious in both new builds and refurbishment/extensions.  We have a team of skilled Carpenters who are adept at conserving joinery for re use and replicating to match existing where necessary.  Our Stone Masons can rebuild, conserve and blend to match in with the remainder of a building.


Our most recent projects have included the complete refurbishment of a 3 storey and 5 storey period homes in Dublin 4:-

  • Significant structural alterations were required including the removal of the existing perimeter rear wall of the houses to allow for new open plan extensions.
  • Construction of a new basement under the rear garden with extension built above it.
  • New Mechanical and Electrical systems including thermo dynamic units, pressurized heating systems, air conditioning and heat recovery ventilation and Control 4 Automation were installed.
  • Windows completely refurbished using specialist contractors
