Hi all. This might be some what of a repeat post but most the answers seem to have been given via private msgs.
Just looking for some recommendations in relation to getting the alarm installed. Some of the quotes I got seem to be a bit high especially as it’s prewired.
How much were you quoted ?
The great thing about alarms is they usually stick a name on the box so you have a good idea who your neighbours have gone with .
Can somebody give me a rough estimate on how much did it cost for following few things to get done? We are trying to set a budget for ourselves and how much cash we would have to roughly keep at our disposal when we get a call for snagging/keys:
1. Flooring for the Ash 3-bed
2. Snagging company's fee
3. Roller blinds
4. Alarm/security system
I just need an idea and want to prepare before the time comes.
Haven’t moved in so can’t see the neighbors just yet.
Quote of almost 1000e.
It was just over 1000e when we got an Alarm installed in the previous house. But they had to drill up into the lintels and run cables through the attic. I would have imagined prewired would be more straight forward
Good news and bad news on the broadband for Camden phase. So I finally found out (via another Board with an Eir representative) when they expect to be laying the cables in the road in order to give us broadband. The date given was 30/12/18. So that's the bad news, no telly for xmas unless you're going to saorview!
I doubt very much that they'll be laying cables over Christmas either but at least there is some date in the calendar and hopefully be all resolved in January.
Meanwhile it's mobile broadband and Netflix for us!
I bought a house on the Camden development last February and first of all let me thank all of you who contributed so far. It's awesome the contribution that all of you have made to this thread throughout the years. It has certainly helped me a couple times and it's certainly a place to check for news on how things are going with the development I'm interested in. So kudos everyone.
I would like to know if anyone has a snagger to recommend? If so send me by PM. I got someone to do my snagging but I'm not very happy with the service and I'm thinking in getting another person in to check for more flaws. From the few companies I called, they all say they are too busy ATM. Thanks in advance!
We're waiting for an Ash as well. Did you hear anything about snagging dates for Ashes ?
Obviously costs will vary depending on the quality / fanciness of the material/service etc, but our (maybe a bit pessimistic) understanding is
1 a ) Get a flooring company do it all for you ~ 5K
b) Get measures yourself, order the laminate yourself, find a flooring specialist through reference/ internet ~3 - 3.5 K
c) Get measures yourself, order non-brand name laminate from Belfast, get it transported here, find a guy here etc etc 2K euros
a ) find someone through reference / internet 150 - 300
b ) work with a company 200 - 300
3 ) didn't look into this one.
4 ) Alarm system 750 - 1000 for traditional alarms, should be less than 500 for smart home security package, nest etc.
Best of luck !
