We have built an excellent relationship with McGrath’s having used their services and products for over 25 years in all aspects of civil engineering requirements on our site.

In 2015 we made the decision to expand our main manufacturing plant in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo by 200,000 square feet. For the floors we worked with McGraths Limestone in Cong who developed a specialised concrete mix incorporating steel fibres for our finished floors. McGraths supplied up to 500 meters of this specialist concrete per day. We found McGraths Limestone to be very helpful in the development of the product, professional in their dealing with us and reliable in terms of meeting our strict delivery schedule. We would have no hesitation in recommending McGraths Limestone based on their reputation and the service they have provided to us.
I have worked in conjunction with McGraths Limestone for over 10 years installing FlowScreed liquid concrete for finished floors in commercial and residential premises supplying local builders and self builds in the Mayo/Galway area. During this time I have found their service to be second to none. Their staff including drivers, dispatch office and quality control team are well organised, very professional, facilitating and nothing is a problem on site. Deliveries are prompt and nine times out of ten they on time. Quality is of great importance to my business and McGraths material testing lab have always dealt with an issues I have encountered. We have recently collaborated on a new fast drying screed binder Cemfloor and the first 12 months have been a great success and our customers are very happy. I look forward to working with McGraths Limestone in the future!

"For most of this time our volume product has been semi-dry cement screeds. Although the semi-dry cement screed is labour intensive to lay, it is a safe, reliable product, with no compatibility problems or long term quality issues. Then, when calcium sulphate liquid screed (hemihydrate & anhydrite) was brought to the market, offering a fast track screed system, we like the rest of the screed producers started to manufacture it to hold market share. We have many years’ experience supplying and fitting calcium sulphate screeds and have been very diligent dealing with its incompatibles and cross contamination issues. Still we had our problems and when we heard about a new cement based liquid screed (Cemfloor) we were keen to explore its capabilities. We were invited by McGraths to see the product being installed and to see a few installations that had been completed in 3-4 weeks. I have to admit once we seen Cemfloor being laid and the finished product, we got very excited. With Cemfloor we are now fully meeting our customers’ floor screed needs without compromise, with no restrictions on where it can be laid! It is not only perfect for underfloor heating systems, it is a real hit in the commercial market for its speed of application. Due to its compatibility with, d.p.m.s, adhesives and levelling compounds, without the fear of bonding failures, it puts the control back in the hands of the contractor. Also, no short term or long moisture problems. Cemfloor has already become a fantastic asset for our business and is truly meeting the needs of our domestic and commercial floor screed customers."
