Review Comments
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.

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.

Renovation of a small derelict building into a modern eco friendly small residence.

The quality of work carried out was excellent. In particular, the tradesmen were extremely professional, courteous and considerate. Work was always completed on time and to a very high standard.

We have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Newtown recently did some work on our bathroom. We had discovered a long-term leak from our shower that had rotted two of the joists underneath the bathroom floor and had damaged the shower cubicle.

Jonathon and his team investigated and identified the cause of the leak, which helped us to make a successful insurance claim.

The repairs took 5 days and the joiners and plumbers who were in were very unobtrusive and caused the minimum of disruption for us while they worked. We were very happy with the quality of the work they did. They replaced the rotten joists, put in new flooring, repaired the shower cubicle and fitted a new tray and shower panelling. They showed us their progress at each stage of the work, and discussed with us our options whenever there was a choice to be made about how to proceed.

Once the job was complete Newtown provided a cleaning company to clean up after them.

We are very happy with the finished product and will be asking Jonathon for a quote later in the year to modernise the rest of our bathroom.

I had my living room windows renovated and draft proofed in my grade B listed property. They were very professional, reliable (this is something that doesn’t happen easily) and the quality of the work has been to a very high standard.
I would use them for the next set of window renovations I will have and strongly recommend to anyone who is considering work done to their windows.

We have just had Newtown Renovations back to our house for a second time. They initially replaced replaced our old windows for new sash & case (double glazed).

There service from start to finish was faultless, the staff were super friendly, extremely efficient and communicated well. Jonathan even organised for window cleaners to come after they had been painted.

The team have just left today having completed panelling in our Victorian home along with bespoke fitted wardrobes. I am delighted with the finished result.

Highly recommend Newtown and we will definitely use them in the future.

Newtown Renovations successfully replaced our leaky Victorian 4-pane skylight, high above the upper landing, with one large double-glazed pane. We were able to discuss, watch and inspect every stage of the job, both with Jonathon Morrice of Newtown Renovations and the craftsmen doing the work. All elements were completed with excellent quality materials and great craftsmanship, and care for the surrounding fabric of the building – slaters checking that the scaffolding had not damaged further slates, for example. The subcontractors would now be our go-to firms for their individual fields. The expertise of Jonathon Morrice in coordinating this work, and the excellence in communication, made this a stress-free project (including observance of Covid rules) and we have great confidence in the result; definitely one of the best experiences we have had with builders.

We have used Newtown Renovations to renovate all of the sash and case windows in our Newtown flat over the last 7 years, coming back to them at the start of each project. They also reinstated a partition wall which previous owners had knocked through. Their workmanship is excellent and they always clean up remarkably well after themselves.

We also used Newtown Renovations to build a new, internal, en-suit bathroom from scratch. This was a substantial project complicated by the existing layout and plumbing in the flat. Jonathon kept us up to date on the progress of the project through out and coordinated his tradesmen to complete the project as quickly as possible. The end result was exactly what we wanted, and as always they cleaned up every time they were in.

Customer service is excellent - highly recommended.
