Chris was helpful from start to finish, left a clean site each day and did a fantastic job of restoring our windows. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Review Comments
Chris took on a really extensive window refurbishment job for us - eleven 200-year old sash and case windows, some of which were barely hanging on...

We'd had several quotes from other companies. A few sent out reps who were unable to answer a lot of the more technical questions. One of the things I liked about Chris is that he's the guy who does the quotes and does the work, so you get a straight answer right away. He was realistic about the scale of the job and didn't try to upsell anything.

Other companies were sceptical about being able to retain any of the original windows. Chris not only managed to retain most of our windows, he even reinstated many of the original glass panes and worked with a carpenter colleague to recreate the really unusual astragals where the originals couldn't be rescued. He really has done an absolutely first-class job. I'd highly recommend Chris to anyone. He's a true craftsman.

Restoration of three sash windows in upper colonies flat.
The work was carried out professionally and thoroughly. Before the work was started a clear, detailed estimate was provided.
It was done with care and efficiency and the windows were saved from their rather delipidated state!
I was really pleased and grateful.

Chris Lodge renovated five sash and case windows in my Edinburgh flat. Excellent quality of workmanship, and the flat was left tidy at the end of each day. And all at a competitive price. To be recommended.

I had my sash windows restored and would highly recommend using lodge restorations. Chris did an amazing job of my windows, they now look as good as new! Chris is very friendly, reliable and trustworthy, he was very open and honest from the start and stuck to the timeframe. I’ve used him since to carry out work to the sash windows in the office I work in. Thanks again Chris, very pleased with the end result!

I am very happy with the window refurbishment that Chris did in my flat. I felt the price was reasonable as there was obviously a lot of work involved as well as some materials being required. Chris is friendly and hardworking. He made a conscious effort to minimise disruption in the flat whilst he was working and tidied up at the end of each day.

Chris responded quickly and was able to fit us in earlier than scheduled which was really helpful. He attended and made practical and helpful recommendations. The work was completed to a very high standard promptly and with a very professional demeanour. No hesitation in recommending.

Chris refurbished and repaired our bay window, both wood and stonework, and replaced the old glass with 'slimlite' double glazed units. Our windows now look smart and are also draught-proof and sound insulated. He gave very good advice during our consultation and would quite happily have done as good a job with single glazing if our budget had been tighter (but still cheaper than replacement double glazed windows). We were able to arrange for him to have access whilst we were away on holiday, and as it involved about 8 days' work this was less disruptive for us and worked out well. I would have no hesitation in recommending his work and would definitely use his services again.

Chris did a great job of repairing our window frames. He gave us options on what he could for us without any pressure to commit to the job. His quote was very reasonable - he even charged us less on the day as the job was more straightforward than had initially thought. I would recommend Chris and without doubt use him again.

Chris has carried out a few jobs for me over the last 18 months and has always done such a good job that I got him back to renovate my bathroom, alongside my plumber.

He's reliable, very hard working, a total perfectionist and the most friendly and tidy tradesman I've had the pleasure of dealing with. I can't recommend Chris highly enough!

The work involved (a) designing and building a pair of bookcases to fit into the available space, and (b) reconstituting and redecorating a toilet-area. This work was completed speedily and to a very high standard. In particular, the bookcases look extremely professional and are finished-off to a high level of detail. Similarly, the toilet area was substantially transformed from "bare walls, floor and ceiling" into a well-finished, tiled and decorative space. I was especially pleased with Chris's flexibility and his willingness to discuss the ongoing jobs. He made many useful suggestions and recommendations throughout. He is reliable, inventive, hard-working and trustworthy.

Chris did 2 jobs for us: making and fitting replacement window shutters and cutting down a piece of furniture ( a futon). In both cases he carried out the work to an exceedingly high standard, obviously taking a professional pride in every aspect of his work. He will be be our first port of call for any future work. Very highly recommended.
