Business Information

Edinburgh Property Works is a small family run business and is the trading name of Russell & Telfer Ltd. My Father started R&T back in 1963.

Working on lots of different small projects for my wonderful private clients I enjoy attending to a variety of maintenance repairs. From Kitchen and Bathroom works, Furniture assembly and repair, Detailed Silicone replacement, Joinery works, Timber bed frame repairs and central spine strengthening, Luxury Vinyl Tile and laminate flooring, Bath panels, Shower screen replacement, Window repairs and Ironmongery replacement, Draught proofing & Pipe boxings access panels to name but a few. I can even hang your pictures!

Okay, so Silicone replacement really needs a little more of a mention here. I get enquiries about Silicone repairs from leaking showers every week and we have all seen it before - silicone smeared around a basin or shower tray that looks like it was applied with an old paintbrush! Or your shower tray is leaking due to defective silicone and its now black and mouldy - Yuk! I can help here and can do so much better - with good technique and careful, repeat careful, preparation. It's so not a "quick job" and the only way is to spend a lot of time removing the old silicone and residue and preparing the joints, which is key, for application of new, high quality, bacteria resistant silicone sealant. In certain situations it even requires removal of existing shower screens to carryout the repair properly - no paintbrush needed - that's a promise!

Most hotels have their own maintenance staff and its always a pleasure to work alongside these guys and give support and a helping hand when their maintenance workload is maxed out. General maintenance repairs can sometimes back up and that’s where I come in. It might be a one off repair to a door lock, self closer, replacement ironmongery or its a broken shower tray that needs replaced (carefully without demolishing the place!). Working closely with a long established Edinburgh plumbing and heating family firm, replacing shower screens and bathroom vanity units and are registered installers of "Multipanel" for shower rooms, a wet wall decorative panel system manufactured by Edinburgh based Grant Westfield.

Edinburgh Property Works also carry out maintenance to city centre offices, in addition to very varied maintenance works for certain Edinburgh Museums and College property.

Working in quality rental property – where the finish needs to be “top notch”. Landlords who are looking for quality, have come to the right place and can rest assured that great care will be taken to enhance their investment. From design ideas through to completion of works, taking time to make sure it’s just right.

So, that's pretty much it! Wanting to help you achieve the perfect property solution. Easy to talk to and keen to do a really good job, professional, reliable and courteous, and truly enjoy my work.

As they say – “good things come to those who wait”! But please don’t wait too long, I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Please send me an initial enquiry email with a full description of the works you are looking to have done with your timeframe and importantly, where you are located in Edinburgh. Please also email some photos, this will help me determine if I can be of assistance to you.

Thanks
Kenneth Telfer

Kenneth quoted for and fitted custom made-doors to our large bookshelves, rendering them toddler-proof. He did so really quickly, appreciating that this mattered a great deal to us. It might not have been a very big job for him (or rather it was probably small and fiddly and not entirely worth his while!) but he made our custom feel valued. Communication throughout was first class. Managed to work extremely quietly- I was on night shift but slept through all his work!- and cleaned up afterwards leaving the area spotless. So pleased with the end result.

I needed the sealant in my shower cubicle and the surrounding kitchen sink to be replaced. Kenneth was very friendly, on time, professional from the day he came to look at the works. He provided the quote very quickly. He arrived on the date and time agreed and did the job very efficiently and thoroughly. My shower cubicle and kitchen tiles looked as good as new. He was very tidy and left no mess whatsoever. He was also very helpful in giving tips on how to maintain the tiles. Also he put extra sealant on some area where it was missed by the original shower installer. I can only say I have never met such a professional trade man who did an ace job and left me very happy with the result. I cannot recommend Kenneth enough. Will definitely use him again for future works including joinery works which he is also expert in.

New shower enclosure fitted. Kenneth was very helpful from when we first contacted him and gave us alternative options to overcome the problems. We opted for a complete replacement and received a quotation and updates as to when the job would be completed. We were kept informed all through the process and are very pleased with the result. Everything was left spotlessly clean and tidy and old enclosure was disposed of with care for all flooring. Would not hesitate to use again.

I contacted Kenneth via Trusted Trader as I required a wardrobe repair.

Amazing job. The work required was a bit awkward but Kenneth came up with various options on how to tackle it. He communicated regularly, keeping me updated at all times.

He was professional and reliable and the work carried out was good value for the money.

I would have no hesitation in using this company again

Kenneth replaced a window lock and shower seal for us. What seemed like a simple job to fix the shower was complicated by the replacement part no longer being available. Kenneth was determined to find a solution though and did a great job in the end. He was alway prompt in his responses and kept me informed of our progress regularly. He was polite and friendly in every interaction. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for maintenance / repair work.

Had Kenneth round to dismantle some fitted wardrobes I had been fighting with! He replied quickly to my initial query, we arranged a suitable time, he turned up on time and did a great job. He helped out by cutting down the bigger pieces so I can go to the council recycling centre myself. He was very helpful, did a great job and tidied up brilliantly afterwards. I would definitely recommend them to others and use them again without hesitation. Thank you so much.

Russell and Telfer were outstanding. I had a complex challenge to fix a bed which involved making a key custom built piece of wood with metal. This did not phase them and this was produced quickly, worked perfectly.

At the same time, they were flexible enough and managed to do another small job at the same time.

Couldn't recommend them more.

Kenneth came round at very short notice to take a big wooden TV unit off the wall that I had been grappling with for days. I messaged him in a bit of a panic at 8pm on a friday night, as it was time sensitive, and he said he could squeeze me in at 8:30AM the next morning. Lifesaver! He did a great job and was so friendly. 10/10 great guy and very professional.

Kenneth has been a real godsend in helping me prepare my disabled sister’s new home in readiness for her moving in. He went above and beyond in making sure everything we needed built, adjusted, altered, or removed was done. Nothing was too much trouble, from the menial tasks to the more complex adjusting parts of an already fitted kitchen to suit the needs required. Kenneth kept me informed every step of the way in his ideas, plans and costs. He took the extra time and trouble to source the best matching materials to ensure a perfect finish in all the various jobs he undertook. Kenneth is a lovely, genuine man who certainly puts his customers first and I really cannot rate his workmanship highly enough. I have no doubt in recommending him as a trusted trader. Thank you so so much Kenneth.

Kenneth fixed a problem we had after having a carpet removed in our hall & living room, following the removal of a wooden strip which separated both rooms. This included painting around the door between the 2 rooms.
Our experience with Kenneth was, as previously, quite exceptional & he is such a pleasure to have in our house.

We had an on-going problem with a leak in our kitchen which is back-to-back with our laundry room. There was originally a leak in the laundry room which was fixed but another leak appeared under the kitchen sink.

Kenneth was very thorough & traced the leak to the set-in sink which he painstakingly addressed. We are delighted with the finished result as Kenneth resolved this issue.

Due to his immaculate work ethic, he was a real pleasure in our home.

Replacement of washbasin and associated joinery work with en suite bathroom. The work by Kenneth Telfer was excellent and carried out in a very efficient and pleasant manner. Everything was tidied up afterwards. I would certainly use this joiner again.
