Claudy DIY supplied various building materials from the ground up to the finishing touches for the Clooney Mews new build project.

Ensuring all the materials were on site on time for the contractors was the priority for this project. “We were efficient and careful with our planning and deliveries,” said Cathal McFeely of Claudy DIY, “and made sure we kept a large amount of common products in stock at all times to ensure waiting times were minimised. A specialised weep pole was requested for a timber-framed house, which we were able to track down, source and provide.

“Being able to provide what the customer needed when asked for without any problems, gives us a great sense of pride.
