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 flooring, Bath panels, Shower screen replacement and repair assessment, Window repairs and Ironmongery replacement, Draught proofing & Pipe boxing access panels to name but a few.

Okay, so Silicone replacement really needs 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 and screen is leaking due to defective silicone and its also 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 most situations it requires temporary removal of the existing shower screen to carryout the repair properly, according to shower screen manufacturers installation instructions - 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

A large kitchen unit door became detached from the carcass ripping out the wood into which the hinge was screwed. Kenneth came out, performed an analysis, provided a robust solution and produced a fair quote.

Kenneth implemented the solution with a keen eye for detail and was timely and professional throughout.

We had new bath panels supplied and fitted and silicone replaced in the kitchen and bathroom. Kenneth carried out all of this work to an excellent standard and we are very pleased with the result. He also alerted us to another issue in our bathroom and sourced an appropriate trader for us for which we were very grateful, as we have avoided problems with water damage as a result. We would not hesitate to recommend Russell & Telfer and to use this firm again.

Kenneth did fantastic work repairing my shower leak. Excellent service and work. Kenneth was efficient, friendly, and explained each step of his process before beginning repairs and then at the end. We'll be using Kenneth again for future work needed around our home. Highly recommend.

Review Comments
I had all the sealants replaced in my kitchen and bathroom and shoddy work carried out by previous traders put right. Also an inefficient shower seat replaced which was very difficult to remove and meant that one tile had to be taken out and replaced before the new seat could be installed. All done very efficiently. All in all I feel I have a new bathroom and kitchen.

I was delighted with the work Kenneth did refurbishing my shower.
He solved a long term problem with leakage due to improper installation and it looks like new.
He was very thorough in his work and extremely tidy clearing up afterwards.
He also gave good advice on preventing the problem reoccuring.
I would definitely use again.

Kenneth took on two small projects in my home -- installing a wall of bookshelves, and adapting a fitted piece of furniture for a new use. He was prompt at replying to my enquiry and scheduling the job, and ultimately did excellent work. The bookshelves look great and the wall-mounted furniture frame came out without any wall damage, which is no easy feat given the crumbly old plaster he was up against. Will call him next time I have a project, and would recommend without hesitation.

The work carried out was with care and great precision. Very old mouldings were remade.
A true craftsman. Thanks again

Kenneth completed a full bathroom renovation in a very small space and the experience was fantastic from start to finish. This included fixing a shower leak, installing a new shower door, shower panels, sink/toilet unit and new flooring.

From first contact Kenneth was professional and friendly, he gave great advice and provided helpful options when I wasn't sure with decisions. Kenneth and his colleagues were very respectful of my home when moving things around and respected all covid rules. The work space was always left tidy at the end of the day and Kenneth was very considerate of my working from home arrangements.

I was very comfortable having Kenneth and his colleagues in my home and I would absolutely recommend Russell & Telfer Ltd!

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.
