Putting you first.

Newtown Renovations is renowned for careful and sympathetic renovations of sash and case windows, a skill much in demand in Edinburgh’s historic and beautiful Newtown. We are, however, much more than that. The skills and levels of attention that our team brings to these restorations apply to all of your home improvement projects, big or small.

Whatever your needs, when it comes to joinery and building work, Newtown Renovations can help you, from working with you on your first idea, right through to delivering you with entirely new, inspiring living spaces.

Skills

Bespoke Carpentry

There is an honesty about working with wood, and there is also artistry. With experience of all aspects of woodworking, you can trust us to design and build bespoke furniture and fittings for your home.

We'll help you realise your vision, offer professional advice on the most appropriate woods and finish, and fit the product to the highest standard. Why make do with off-the-shelf when you can enjoy made-to-measure?

Joinery

With many years experience in the joinery industry, Newtown Renovations delivers a fast and friendly service. Our staff are highly qualified and we provide professional, high quality joinery services.

We take the small jobs as seriously as the big ones and we aim to deliver outstanding service and great value for money, enabling customers to live the dream, not just dream it.

Draught-proofing

Not renowned for being draught-free, sash and case windows can be greatly improved.

Sashes are machined with a groove to accept a pile carrier with polypropylene brushes which fill the gaps around the case. Parting beads and baton rods are also fitted with brushes which will make your window 98% draught proof, banishing rattle and draughts. Similar improvements can be done to doors.

As a further bonus, clients can expect significant noise reduction, and the added pleasure of dust free window sills; if you live in the town centre you'll know what we mean!

Painting & Decorating

We take great pride in our decorating skills. Whether you just want to freshen up a room, or want a radical makeover throughout your home, we'll find the right paint and wallpaper for you.

We are increasingly using water-based paints to deliver outstanding results for our customers. These finishes have improved incredibly over recent years and are far more eco-friendly than traditional paints.

Repointing

At Newtown Renovations, we use the most appropriate materials and skills to deliver the very best results. We point windows with Febmast which is a mix of burnt sand and linseed oil.

This traditional material has been used for centuries and is both weatherproof and flexible. For us, it is still the best way to achieve a lasting seal around windows.

Ironmongery

The ironmongery used to finish your windows is almost as important as the windows themselves. Not just functional, it should enhance the visual appeal of your windows as well.

We supply and fit all types of ironmongery in chrome or polished brass. Additionally, we can fit security locks to increase the safety of your home. Unobtrusive window vents can also be installed to sash frames, if requested.

General Maintenance

Our skill set is so broad that it should be no surprise that we are more than happy to take on general maintenance jobs as well as specific projects. There is no reason why the slightly less exciting projects in your home shouldn't receive the same care and professionalism that we bring to every job we tackle.

What our clients say…

I can only commend the quality and customer care that Newtown Renovations produced when undertaking an 18-month refurbishment of my Backpackers' Hostel. The team project managed the entire refurbishment - from clearing the building, renovating approx 66 sash & case windows, building new toilet facilities, replacing all doors (approx 40) to allow us to fit keyless locks, repairing all floors, fitting an 'industrial style' kitchen for the use of approx 100 guests, and painted the entire property. Logistically, this was a very difficult job due to the location and premises being in a Common Stair, 77 steps up! Newtown was extremely accommodating and considerate during the course of the works, allowing us to remain open for customers.

Jonathon and his team at Newtown Renovations did a really great job for us carrying out renovation works to a flat in a listed building. Work included roof repairs, stone work repairs, replacing a damaged window lintel, replastering, insulating, electrics, decorating and installing new high spec timber sash windows (City Council approved). Jonathon coordinated the work, kept me informed and brought in extra trades as required whilst providing sound advice and keeping to budget. The standard of work was excellent and I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Newtown Renovations.

Jonathon & his team have finished doing various jobs in our home (kitchen & bathroom). I cannot recommend Newtown Renovations enough - right from quoting for the job, reassuring us re Covid19 processes, completing the work in time stated, and then making sure everything was cleaned and as they found it. I highly recommend them and will be using Newtown Renovations again in the near future. Thank you JoJo & team!

Newtown Renovations installed replacement timber sash and case double glazed windows (35 in total) to our property in a conservation area. They also carried out full restoration of all the original shutters including crafting new leaves where required. The workmanship of the whole team is excellent. Jonathon has since completed a number of other projects for us, all to the same excellent standards. We have no hesitation in recommending Newtown Renovations.
