I can confirm that we now have full national coverage! If you are in Crumlin or Connemara, Cavan or Kanturk at last...Help is at hand! Ivory towers are being abandoned at a rate of knots and an essential link is being established between people in need (or should I say Houses in need) and a body of willing expertise. The Press release is going out today and here it is:

Launch of Help My

A new nationwide service for homeowners, providing reliable expert advice on house defects and related issues, for a fixed fee, will be launched on Thursday 17 September.

Homeowners have to be careful with their budgets these days, so if they think their house needs some building or repair work, they’ve got to be sure about the scale of the problem before they call in the professionals – and potentially start paying out big money!

That’s where Help My comes in – for a fixed fee-, an experienced and reliable architect will call to a client’s house to examine and assess the problem. He or she will provide a written list on what to do next.

In one simple visit, all the questions about whether a job will be big or small (or not needed at all) will be answered or further diagnosis will be recommended.

The fee for a visit from the Help My House team is fixed at just €150 in most urban areas and €200 elsewhere. VAT and expenses are included in those figures, so there are no hidden charges.

Advice is available in every county in the country, and all Area Architects are members of the RIAI (Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland), so homeowners can be sure that the advice given is unbiaised and reliable.

Help My – Smart advice for a fixed price.

Extra information
Help My has been set up by Dublin-based architect Anthony Brabazon, whose aim is to provide homeowners with simple, yet reliable, advice on building or repair works in the home.
Anthony was motivated to set up the Help My House service on hearing yet another story of an old-age pensioner who was ripped off by bogus “professionals” offering to “fix” a perfectly adequate roof.
In Anthony’s experience, many people just don’t know where to start when they discover problems in their houses, and so, before they make a decision which could cost hundreds, or thousands, of euro, they can now get fast, dependable advice from a professional – and for a fixed fee.
