SEAI One Stop Sop Grant Admin

    Hi there,

    New to so apologies if this post doesn't belong here. We purchased a 1950's home in Dublin 2 years ago that needs a full renovation and we are also planning an extension. We have an architect and a couple of contractors we are talking to but I was wondering do I have to apply for the SEAI grants myself or can a One stop shop do them for me and work with my contractor and architect?

    Has anyone got any experience with this? Does anyone know what a one stop shop would charge for just administrating the grants?

    Thanks :)

    You'll find it's cheaper to get separate quotes from companies for the Jobs you want doing.

    OSS charge a premium from what I've seen.

    Sorry, jumping in here but certain grants - such as windows - only available through One Stop Shops? I'm looking at upgrades too and that would include windows. I'd lose out on these grants going separately unless the difference is really that large?

    The coordination aspect of it all is obviously a big selling for OSS too.

    It depends. I parted company with a OSS last year over a quote of 13.5k for 2.4kwp solar. It was the straw. All other parts were over the odds but not as excessive but the windows would been more than covered sans grants by the excesses in the quotes
