Our Projects

You are the focus of our efforts, so it means a lot when clients feel so strongly about the difference we have made that they care enough to tell us about it. Here are some examples of the projects we’ve undertaken and how our clients have felt about them.

East Lothian


What our clients say…

Our previous tradesman refused to complete an extensive snagging list at our refurbished West End flat and Jonathon came to our rescue - over 10 years ago. We've undertaken a number of other projects together since, and despite getting recommendations and quotes from others, we always return to Newtown Renovations. They fitted a new kitchen in my rental property at Haymarket during a three-day fallow period. They helped me renovate a friend’s property in the Newtown - in just two months - to get it in a fit state for sale. They fitted a new kitchen, new bathroom and ensured the electrics throughout the property met current regulations, and it sold very quickly thereafter. Jonathon is straightforward, trustworthy and the standard of work he and his team produce is to the highest quality. We trust him implicitly. He always goes the extra mile and we'll continue to recommend them to anyone looking for an outstanding professional contractor within Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Newtown Renovations refurbished our shutters, sash & case windows and renovated our ground floor bathroom. They provided all the necessary trades - from joinery, plumbing and electrical to decorating. From the outset, Jonathon's communication and management of the project was outstanding. A detailed quote was provided and the team delivered upon their promises, made all the more tricky with the COVID-19 lockdown and subsequent restrictions, which they had to navigate and adhere to, as the country came out of lockdown. If you are looking for a competitive, professional and reliable service, I'd highly recommend you contact Jonathon and consider them in the first instance.

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.


In the past two years, Newtown Renovations have designed and installed a new full kitchen, incorporating all relevant trades, along with new PVC front and back doors. The quality of all of the work was first class and excellent value-for-money as compared to other firms who were priced at the time for both jobs. Throughout all of our dealings with Newtown Renovations, we were very impressed. The nature of the work and associated disturbance, time scale, etc, was accurately explained and we were very comfortable with the tradesmen during the time they spent at our house. They are now our preferred choice for related work and we have had no hesitation in highly recommending them several times since to family and friends.

Terry Gillan,

Replacement of ageing, draughty and cold sash windows with double-glazed replacements that are visually indistinguishable from the originals. We have used Newtown Renovations on two occasions and now replaced around 60% of the windows in the house. They have been very prompt and courteous and the work is to an extremely high quality. In each case they took care with with existing furnishings and left no trace they had done any work save for the excellent new windows. I could not recommend them more highly.

Rob Dobson,

Newtown Renovations built our extension and we couldn't be happier - would happily recommend Jonathon and his team for any similar work. From the quotes we obtained Newtown was the most expensive but from the start we were impressed with Jonathon and his willingness to work with us to build to our requirements. He was always clear on the work plan and was very clear where an additional cost was required. All of the guys on site were clearly interested in high quality work. Jonathon was personally onsite most of the time and clearly has high standards. Definite value for money.

David Clarke,

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.

Mr & Mrs Simpson,

Jonathon and his team at Newtown Renovations completely refurbished two Edinburgh period properties for me. The craftsmanship is excellent, work completed on time, total professionals. Since completing the works, my properties have been subject to International magazine shoots.

Jo Tutton,

Newtown Renovations are an excellent company who installed fantastic new fitted wardrobes. Very reasonable prices and we will definitely use them again for any joinery work in the future.
