Client Testimonials

We're delighted by our clients' satisfaction. We take pride knowing that we work fast, efficiently, fairly, and with minimal impact on the environment. Some of our glowing reviews can be read below.

…In 2008 I opened my hair salon in Camden Wharf, Carroll’s Quay, Cork.  My unit was literally an empty shell with block walls.  Paul Egan was highly recommended to me to carry out the work involved to make it a modern, state of the art salon.

Paul and his Southern Green Homes team took charge of the whole project for me.  He organised everything from the electrics to the plumbing to the plastering and all other building work concerned.  His advice was invaluable during this process.  He ensured all our light fittings were in sync with our mirrors and that our water tanks had to be a certain type which will allow us to work on a reserve tank if anything ever happens with Cork City Council water supply.  He also took great care in advising me  on other little things which make a huge difference in the everyday running of the salon.

Due to Paul’s high standard of work, he has undoubtedly made my salon on of the most modern salons in Cork City.  So much so that we have been awarded the prestigious 5 Star Salon Award.

Paul’s level of knowledge within the building industry is second to none.  His team are very professional.

I have and will continue to recommend Paul to everybody…

Southern Green Homes Testimonial from Solo Hair Design, Cork City



In 2010 we decided to embark on a major renovation project for our home. Originally built in 1972, it required extensive work on all aspects of construction , insulation and energy efficient heating.
After a competitive bidding process we selected Southern Green Homes for several reasons including  strong recommendations from previous customers , a personal touch in the planning stages and commitment to complete on time and on budget which was critical as we had a communion on the horizon.

Of particular concern to us was the need to bring the energy efficiency of the home up to modern standards . Southern Green Homes completed an energy audit of our home and a BER certificate issued prior to renovation showed we had an “F” energy rating . On the expert advice of  Southern Green Homes we decided upon a variety of insulation and heating improvements including , internal wall insulation , cavity wall insulation , underfloor insulation and zoned heating control systems. Southern Green Homes also had the foresight to install the capability to get a warm water feed from solar panels into our hot water system which is our next project as the SEAI grant will make it worthwhile.

Throughout the process Southern Green Homes were a pleasure to work with and exhibited an extensive knowledge of the latest regulations , techniques and cost competitive solutions to achieve our goals. The personal approach was again in evidence as they took over the responsibility to complete the SEAI grant application which took a load off and considerably reduced our final cost.

I am happy  to say we are now one of those previous customers who are delighted  to recommend Southern Green Homes for any home improvement project!

…Paul Egan’s company worked in the above school for approximately five weeks, commencing January 2010.  There was substantial damage done to the school as a result of flooding that winter.

Southern Green Homes re-installed the fire alarms, security system, and completed all other electrical works attached to the job.

The Board of Management were extremely satisfied with the standard to which the work was completed.  The workers were punctual, reliable, and hard working.  They were under pressure time wise, but completed the work ahead of schedule.

We would have no heitation whatsoever in recommending the Company for any work for which they apply…

In 2011, we were in need of renovating our home for our mother’s health conditions.  Paul Egan and Southern Green Homes were recommended to us.  From start to finish, we were delighted not only with the quality of their work, but their positive attitudes, helpfulness, fair pricing, and work ethic.

We were just amazed at the transformation!  We needed a disability bathroom for my aging mother and Southern Green Homes worked with an occupational therapist and an architect to ensure that all fixtures and the bathroom layout were perfectly placed to suit my mothers needs.  Not only was my mother pleased with the perfect functionality of their work, but we were all impressed by how great it looked!  In fact, they turned one of my least favourite corners of the house into one of the most modern and beautiful!  Not to mention, that the new systems is more efficient and we’ve already started to see savings from the new shower they installed.

They really went above and beyond, installing handrails on the stairs and making simple suggestions that made our lives easier during this new transition.  We met perhaps five or six of the craftsmen from Southern Green and every one of them was skilled, courteous, friendly, helpful, motivated and professional.  Every interaction was a delight and I will be recommending them everyone.  I really couldn’t be more impressed.  Thank you to the whole crew, you’re doing fantastic work!

…Mr. Egan’s company worked in live environments with tenants present in the houses during remodeling schemes in some of our more challenging properties.

I found both their work standard and attitude to be exemplary during these contracts.  They ensured the highest quality was always achieved and worked closely with the Town Council to overcome many challenges present in both technical issues and work logistics.

Final accounts were always agreed with great fairness and I would not consider them to be claims conscious.

I have no hesitation in recommending Paul and his workforce for any further projects they may tender for and wish them every success in the future…

In 2010 I contacted Paul Egan from Southern Green Homes to convert my mothers spare bedroom into a disability bathroom.  Paul Egan came highly recommended from many friends and colleagues.  We found the Southern Green Home team very professional, reliable and competitively priced.

As there was no plumbing function on the first floor Southern Green Homes installed a saniflow system.  This installation was seamless and no pipe work visible at all. The end result exceeded all our expectations.  I wouldn’t hesitate to use Southern Green Homes again or recommend them to others.  Paul and his team have changed my mothers quality of life for the better and for that I am truly grateful.
