Are There Grants Available

Home Renovation Incentive

The Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) Scheme provides for tax relief for Homeowners and Landlords by way of an Income Tax credit at 13.5% of qualifying expenditure on repair, renovation or improvement works carried out on a main home or rental property by qualifying Contractors.

For more information check out this page on Revenue.ie.

There are also a number of grants, VAT refunds or tax credit schemes for people who are elderly, less-abled or hold a Medical Card or a Long Term Illness Card:

  • Housing Aid for Older Persons Scheme for improving the condition of an older person’s home.
  • Mobility Aids Grant Scheme for alterations, such as grab rails and level access showers. (Means-tested, provides a maximum grant of €6,000).
  • If you have a Medical Card or a Long Term Illness Card, you may be entitled to get essential items of equipment free of charge. First, you must be assessed by an Occupational Therapist.
  • VAT refund on equipment needed for someone with a disability.

Most of these require you to get advance approval before starting any works. For more information check out the Citizens Information website.

Which Bathroom is Right For Me

As part of Phoenix Contractors Site Survey, we will advise you on all your options, answer all your questions and help you make the decision that is right for you.


Can I Convert My Bathroom Into A Wetroom

Yes you can. Contact us today to arrange a survey so we can advise you on the best solution for you.

How Do I Choose The Right Shower?

With all the options on the market without our help it is easy to make the wrong choice. Things to consider are available water pressure. Easy to use controls for children, elderly and less-abled people. Getting an electric shower. Installing a pump to have a high-pressure shower, instead of the trickle feed most old showers give. Contact us today and we will call out to you and discuss whats the right system for you.

Why You Should Talk To Us Before Buying A Bathroom Suite?

We have over 15 years experience fitting bathrooms. In that time we have met lots of people who have jumped the gun and bought a bathroom suite that is just too big for their space, or requires more water pressure than they have.
Not all bathroom furniture will fit the space and be practical for your current and future needs. And it can be a very expensive mistake to make.

Can I Have A Wetroom Without It Being A Wetroom

Yes. And there are ways of having all the benefits of having a wetroom without it being a wetroom. Cost being one of them. On completing a survey of your bathroom we can advise you on the best layout, fittings and fixtures that will provide for your current and future needs.
