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.

We work on lots of different small projects for our wonderful private clients and enjoy attending to a variety of maintenance repairs. Kitchen and Bathroom repairs and replacement, Furniture assembly and repair, Silicone replacement, Joinery works, Luxury Vinyl Tile and laminate flooring, Bath panels, Shower screens, Window repairs and Ironmongery replacement, Draught proofing & Pipe boxings to name but a few. We will even hang your pictures!

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 we 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!). We work closely with a well established Edinburgh plumbing company and can replace shower screens and bathroom vanity units and are registered installers of Multipanel for shower rooms, a wet wall panel system made 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 a quality job have come to the right place and can rest assured that we will do everything possible to enhance their investment. From design ideas through to completion of works, we’ll take time to make sure it’s just right.

So, that's us! We want to help you achieve the perfect property solution. We are easy to talk to, we do a really good job, we’re professional, reliable and courteous, and truly enjoy our work.

As they say – “good things come to those who wait”! But please don’t wait too long, we’d like to hear from you now!

Please send your enquiry email with a full description of the works you are looking to have done and where you are located in Edinburgh. Please also attach some photos, this will help us determine how we can be of assistance.

Thanks
Kenneth Telfer

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.

Some joinery repairs. Kenneth turned up when he said he would. He was well prepared with necessary ppe and informed us beforehand of his COVID working practices.
He did a good neat job and I would be happy to recommend him and I will call him again when I need similar work done

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.

Mr Telfer was hard working and reliable and he completed the work most efficiently and very neatly, without any fuss, leaving everything tidy.
He was also very knowledgeable and made several useful suggestions about the work.

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.

I had pipe work under my shower tray lowered, to enable me to have shalower tray. Therefore easier access, joinery work connected to this was carried out to a high standard. Also afterwards the new flooring was fitted, which I really like.

Kenneth was very reliable and always turned up, when he said he would. I had no hesitation I leaving him in my home, if I had to go out.)

We had an inexplicable leak from a shower unit. The source of the leak was not visible but was causing problems to our neighbour below. Russell & Telfer undertook a thorough and meticulous investigation and identified the source. The drew up a proposal and we agreed to have the tiles, shower base and shower enclosure completely replaced. Russell & Telfer stripped all the tiles, removed the shower base and enclosure and disposed of them. On completion they identified that one wall was still damp and installed an industrial humidifier... at no extra cost... for ten days to dry out the wall. They then installed premium quality shower panels, a low profile shower base and shower enclosure with great care to ensure everything was true and plumb. and obviously watertight.

We could not be happier with the work.
