Caolan McLaughlin

Caolán joined us in August 2018 and is a great asset to our team.    He has a great eye for colours, and ideas of what a room will look like if we apply certain colours in specific area, which is very useful to customers who are undecided on their choices!   Caolán holds a current Construction Skills Registration.  

He is involved with the pricing/estimating on new work, and whilst on site, he is often found clambering on roofs or painting chimneys for us (because he says we're too old!)......
