Five stars to this tradesperson, we got our old ugly, creaky seventies stair case replaced with a custom made solid oak one, and the change to the look and feel of our house is great. I hope this rating tool allows me to post pictures.

I'm really pleased with all the joinery work that Scott did for me. He built a great window seat in my front room, and all the other jobs (new skirting board, hardboard over the floor, etc) were completed as requested for a fair price. Scott clearly has a lot of experience and a wide range of skills. He is also a very pleasant and considerate guy, who took a great deal of care over the job and took all my requests into account. Very happy to recommend him to others.

Staircase was falling apart and Scott fixed it, rock solid again, no more bouncing. Very friendly and courteous.

The actual job changed as I had a friend help with the doors. Scott added stair risers to an open staircase for me - did an excellent job

The windows restoration work took longer than was anticipated and there were some unexpected issues thrown up. Nevertheless Scott stuck with the task and finished the work to the standard that was promised without charging more than the original estimate. In my opinion this was highly commendable and I would be very happy to recommend him to others.

Could not recommend Scot highly enough, brilliant, just brilliant. Responded, value for money, nice, honest guy. He turned up exactly when he said he would. Quality of work outstanding. We had not purchased enough material so job couldn't be finished that day. Past experience of tradesmen not coming back to finish a job,no such issues here. It was a few days before Xmas, they had other jobs but Scott came back and finished. If you are looking for top notch and honest tradesman, look no further.

Amazing craftsmanship at reasonable price. Lovely bloke too. Some occasional timing issues but would definitely use again and finished job on fixing quirky stairs better than we could of hoped.

I used Swallow Restorations for a large Georgian banister in Edinburgh's New Town. The work was top class. Great care was taken when doing the work and I recommend Swallow Restorations without any hesitation. A truly professional company.
