I consulted new town renovations about the renovation of a possible property purchase, and they could not have been more professional, generous, and kind. While I haven’t yet used their services fully, I regularly see local reviews in Facebook groups recommending them heartily, so I will definitely be using them for all of my future renovation needs. Thanks ever so much Jonathon, Anne, Amanda and team.

Having had Newtown Renovations a few months ago to install an ensuite shower room, and having been pleased with their work, I asked them to insulate the roof above a ground floor extension. As with the previous job, the work was undertaken at the time agreed and the team members were polite and efficient.

Jonathon and his team at Newtown Renovations reconfigured the top floor of our house, moving walls to create two new rooms, replaced ceilings and cornice and installed a new shower room. They also renovated our utility room by installing kitchen units and tiled and plastered our vestibule. Any time you have people working in your house can be quite stressful but the communication with Jonathon and his team was excellent and went a long way to making the process as stress free as possible. My partner and I were very happy with the work and finish that was achieved. And where there were a few snags or issues to be resolved, Jonathon made sure that these were done and we were happy. We were very happy with the work in general but I think their joinery work was exceptional and deserves a special mention. I highly expect we will ask Newtown to do more work for us and I have already recommended them to friends.

Jonathon and his team have done several bits of work for us over the years, most recently extending and replacing several skylights in a georgian roof. They always do what they say they will do and charge what they say they will charge. They are friendly and punctual, and leave the place as tidy as it can be at the end of each day and at the end of the project. I found it hard to comment on value for money because we've been so satisfied with the work that we haven't had anyone else quote for it for ages!

I'll use New Town again and always recommend them.

We wanted to say how pleased we are with the work done by the team. Thank you. 

From the start Jonathon was really helpful and gave us welcome advice about the inside bifold conservatory doors and additional frame work we required. 

We felt really confident and happy to go with Jonathon and the team.

They were all very friendly and professional, and the work itself was completed exactly as we hoped it might be. They were on time, kept us up to date throughout the job, and also made sure we had video and images of the work, in case we needed them when we were not at home to view what had been done. The team did a great clean up job too. 

It has only been a few days since the interior doors were installed, and we can really feel the benefit! Thank you. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks.

I would highly recomend using Newtown Renovations. They have completed an attic conversion for us and we absolutly love it. They have been very good at communicating with us throughout the work, explaining any changes that needed to be made, and when tradesmen would be in the house. All the people in the house were respectful and nice, and did their best to clear up after each day. They were understanding of everyday family life (as we have two small children under 3). The work has been completed to a high standard and quality. We would definitely use them again for other projects in the future.

The work was carried out punctually and well by competent, polite and considerate workmen. The team was flexible and adjusted their schedule to our time constraints.
The new window fully meets our expectations.
All around, a good service.

We elected to use Newtown renovations to replace sash windows in a conservation area.

They dealt with the whole process from liaising with an architect to file and gain the appropriate listed building consent, making and installing the new windows into the existing cases plus all the joinery, draught proofing, painting etc.

Jonathon and his team are a pleasure to deal with, great communication throughout, happy to answer any questions (in our case provided water-based VOC paint) and will certainly use again!

Newtown Renovations refurbished and draft-proofed our sash-and-case windows, fitted engineered flooring in the hall and provided a highly experienced joiner for a week or so to carry out numerous repairs on our A-listed flat. We are delighted with the quality of their work and their professionalism, especially their can-do attitude and the fact they would periodically call us to make sure we were happy with the work. We would definitely use them again and recommend them to others looking for a good quality, reliable builder in Edinburgh.

Newtown Renovations recently carried out a full refurbishment of my sash and case windows. Jonathon and the onsite team (Liam and Shane) kept me well informed throughout, including liaising with the painters, and everyone managed to keep the mess to a minimum, despite the understandable upheaval. I am delighted with my finished windows - they are now all fully draught-proofed, open and close smoothly and the whole flat is noticeably warmer (and quieter) now that the work has been done. I am very happy to recommend Newtown Renovations.

Renovations of windows, sympathetically done, with care, courtesy and real attention to detail. I would particularly note that when difficulties arose in the course of works NTR found solutions with minimum fuss and maximum effect. Will definitely use again on my next project.

Jonathon and the team refurbished our Georgian Sash and Case windows and restored all the associated shutters that had been painted over decades ago.

All the work was done to a high standard by a great bunch of guys who always left the place nice and tidy at the end of each day.

Jonathon and the team at Newtown had been recommended to us by a friend at work. We had just bought a house in need of a lot of refurbishment over a long-term project, and we needed trusted advice on how to budget for and prioritise that work, taking into account our needs and the listed status of our home. Having had poor experiences with contractors on previous projects, it was very important to find someone who we knew we could trust and would give us practical advice on where to invest time and money. Jonathon has supported us more than we could have anticipated – he and his team are always on-hand, friendly and reliable. The refurbishment work done so far has been extensive and in places complex, and been completed on time, on-budget and to the highest standard. This was all achieved in spite of our changing aspects of the project as we went and also the impact of covid19. Every member of the team has been excellent and we could not recommend Jonathon and Newtown highly enough.

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.
