We had the guys fit new sash and case windows on a dormer for our client who we were installing a new roof for.

The client was proving to be very picky and in my opinion very hard to please however, he was delighted with the work carried out by Newtown Renovations.

We will continue to use these guys for any joinery work we require on future projects.

The company provided a bespoke wall unit to house a new microwave oven. The carpenter came at the date and time agreed and although there were 1 or 2 hiccups along the way my wife and I were very satisfied with the completed work. We would certainly use Newtown Renovations again.

Had Newtown Renovations refurbish a living room, replace a garage roof (including joists) and remove a chimney.

The living room involved removing a ceiling and fireplace before fitting a new ceiling with cornice, plastering, sockets/lights and painting.

Very happy with the quality of the work and will definitely be using again. Very easy firm to work with, good eye for detail and no shortcuts taken. You can trust them to get on with the job.

We contacted Newtown Renovations in search of a joiner that could repair our broken gate which is part of an Escape Room franchise. This was a large job and after contacting numerous other joiners, we decided to use this company and are glad we did.

Sadly the gate broke for a second time due to customer misuse and they came out incredibly quickly to once again resolve the problem and further secure it from people attempting to break out of an Escape Room. We are very grateful for the communication speeds and work completed and would highly recommend them.

We had our sash and case windows replaced in order to benefit from double glazing and improved insulation. The windows are excellent quality and an exact match for the Georgian / Victorian originals. Posting a big shout out to the two fitters, Shane and Liam, who were polite, efficient and incredibly tidy! Thanks guys.

Jonathon, Thomas and the team did a great job with our attic conversion installing a fixed stairs to create a new accessible store room. All the guys were great to deal with and the quality of work has been great. It’s really transformed the look of the upstairs. Despite issues with delivery of materials we were kept informed of any delays or issues that inevitably happen in such an in depth renovation. We were very impressed with the overall cleanliness as the end of each day they made sure as much as possible the job was tidy and tools, rubbish, equipment put away. They even arranged for cleaners to come in to clean all rooms on a number of occasions throughout the works. I’d highly recommend.

Jonathon and his team installed a new shower in our New Town property and have done a fantatistic job. We have had some issues with our bathroom and after being messed around by another contractor contacted New Town Renovations after they did a brilliant job installing a new front door in our flat. In an industry where most traders cannot communicate with the clients or even turn up on time, Jonathon and his team are the complete opposite and set the bar for being head and shoulders above anyone else we have used. Always communicating with us, providing updates, doing extra work off their own backs when needed, sticking to schedule and ensuring their work is done to highest standard. Would recommend to anyone getting renovation work done.

Supply and fitting of new double glazing sashes to our bay window along with the refurbishment of the shutters that had been closed up plus painting. Also did similar for single window in back room & provided an over-haul for the window in another room. The experience was first class from start to finish - Jonathon came out as planned to measure up the job & provide an estimate. Liam then did a great job in undertaking the work & completing it to my complete satisfaction. I now have a great looking windows with double glazing and draft proofed throughout the house - batons were added to 4 windows as a wee extra. This was all done to the timescales and price agreed so have no hesitation in highly recommending Newtown Renovations

We have used Newtown Renovations three or four times now to replace around half of the windows in our house and they have done an excellent job on each occasion.

No hesitation in recommending Jonathon and his team. A very professional and high quality service. Extremely respectful of my property and first class workmanship. Skilled job in opening up and restoring shutters in my Georgian townhouse conversion. An excellent outcome. Decorating was beautifully done.

Large window replaced with a double glazed hardwood unit.
iI am very happy with the finished window, it looks great - the workmen were totally professional and helpful, minimal disruption and Jonathon kept me informed throughout.
Overall, 10 out of 10 for customer care !
Will happily use again.

Brilliant set of built-in shelves and cupboards designed and fitted by Jonathon and the team. We were kept in touch with progress and plans as lockdown delayed thinigs. Once the joiners could get in again, the fit was quick, mess free and the finished product looks great.

A wardrobe was left unfinished by another trader who we believe went out of business before the job was completed. We required a sliding door system to be supplied and fit, with the complication that the job had been started with a specific system in mind. Reliability was very important to us in choosing someone to complete the job which is why we made use of the Trusted Trader scheme.

Communications with the company were excellent - they kept us fully informed throughout. This included seeking appropriate doors and sharing photographs with us to confirm suitability. Unfortunately the installation was delayed by coronavirus restrictions. However, the company communicated very well with us during this period, and arranged an installation date as soon as the restrictions were lifted. The installation itself was done to a high standard, with the company following up afterwards to check we were happy.

They are maybe not the cheapest, but overall the service is very professional.

Extensive refurbishment of wooden windows including the replacement of rotten sills and painting. Replacement of a wooden surround for an outside garden door. Replacement of a broken large window pane.
The owner, Jonathon, made himself available by phone and email. He inspected the work regularly as it progressed. At the end of the job he walked around the property with me to make sure that I was happy.
Newtown Renovations did a lot of work at my house within a tight timescale. I found the company to be responsive to my needs, professional and providing good value for money.
I have no hesitation in providing this recommendation.

Fantastic service, communication and workmanship. We were so happy with the service we received from Jonathan and his team. They looked after the renovation of our bathroom from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and the level of communication was exceptional. The end product is a stunning bathroom which we absolutely love. We would never hesitate to use Newtown again nor to recommend them to others. Just a brilliant company

Newtown Renovations replaced extensive rot in an elaborate Victorian lantern bay window. This involved placing a damp course above the stone lintel, replacing some 5m of sill, and patching in uprights without disturbing the fragile original glass. The workers were quick, efficient and careful, and attention to customer service by Jonathan Morrice was excellent, with careful explanations before the job started of what was involved, and good follow-up to ensure that we were happy with the end result. A nice touch was a thank you card! Whilst Newtown Renovations were certainly not the cheapest quote we had, their attention to detail and the quality of craftsmanship justified the additional price. I would certainly use again.
