As Which? Trusted Traders ourselves (Heating and Plumbing) we often find that we are involved in work where aspects of it fall outside our skill set and we have to draft in other trades. This can present many challenges as we are then relying on another company to uphold the values that have won us so many positive reviews but also have the potential to reflect badly on the service we provide. It’s for this reason that we use Keith McNicoll from trader whenever we have joinery work on a project. We have been involved with Keith and his team on jobs ranging from simple cupboards around boilers, to kitchens, bathrooms and large Victorian house renovations. On every job, Keith and his team have been reliable, prompt, tidy (very!) and importantly, well-mannered towards our clients. This being the trades, things don’t always go 100% to plan, in these situations Keith is flexible, decent and goes about dealing with any issues with a can-do attitude that is sadly lacking in many tradesmen today. We can whole-heartedly recommend trader to anyone looking for first class joinery services. Iain Clarke Edinburgh Heating

New radiators and a new combi boiler had to be fitted and pipework for gas and water had to be replaced under existing wooden flooring. Turned out to be a more complex job than was anticipated, but with the assistance of a skilled joiner who carefully cut a few hatches and almost invisibly replaced the flooring the heating engineers of MacGregor did a great job. We highly recommend this company.

I was looking for a trusted joiner to install my double glazing windows and Keith McNicoll from Urban Joinery was recommended to me. When I first met Keith he was very personable and put me at ease when explaining the work he was going to carry out. He was able to source and install the windows at a very competitive price and within the timescale he gave me when providing the initial quote. I have used Keith again to fit skirting boards in my house and he kindly gave me some very good advice on stripping my internal doors which meant that I did not have to buy replacements. I would recommend and use trader again for their professional approach and good workmanship. Thanks Keith!

Having read reviews of trader on Which Local I approached Iain for a quotation for replacing my central heating boiler with a combi boiler. He gave me very informative advice and I decided to accept his quotation. We agreed a date for commencement of the job and Iain turned up on the agreed date complete with boiler and accessories. Due to an unfortunate error by another company which had been scheduled to complete some alterations to my gas supply that day, Iain was unable to start his work. Despite this frustration he remained helpful and good-natured and he very generously agreed to postpone the installation till a later date. He also agreed to try to coordinate his work with the company which was going to install a new kitchen for me.This he did and things went very well. I am now enjoying the comfort provided by the new boiler. I found Iain very courteous, friendly and obliging. May I also add that he even took time when here to help out one of my neighbours who had a small problem with her central heating. I would have no hesitation in recommending Edinburgh Heating.

From first contact with Keith McNicoll of trader I received informative, courteous and helpful advice regarding the planning and fitting of my kitchen. He and his experienced team carried out the work efficiently to a very high standard and were considerate and adaptable - taking pride in their work and keeping me well informed of progress throughout the whole process. I am delighted with the finished result and I thoroughly recommend Keith and his pleasant, professional and reliable team.

We used Urban Joinery last year to install a new kitchen. Hand on heart we could not have chosen anyone better. From our initial contact, Keith was professional and knowledgeable. We sourced all the electrical appliances ourselves, but had to telephone and email Keith numerous times for advice; he was always incredibly patient and helpful. Keith co-ordinated the work with an excellent electrician and multi-talented plumber/tiler. He was extremely flexible and accommodating with changes to the original design. Suffice to say we are delighted with the finished result and although Keith stressed throughout that he was available for any problems that might arise, we have not needed to call on him. There are very few people who have a passion for their work like Keith, he is truly is an exceptional joiner and we have no hesitation in recommending him.

As a result of recommendations on Which Local and others we asked Iain to give a quotation for a new boiler. This was quickly done, estimate accepted and date agreed for work. He had pointed out that it was going to be a difficult job to fit the new boiler, flue and condensate pipe in the confined space, kitchen cupboard, occupied by existing boiler. Iain’s approach to the work was exemplary, he carefully dismantled the existing boiler, then realised to get access to the back of the boiler that the worktop and cooker would need removing. This was all efficiently and neatly done keeping us fully informed. The boiler fitted perfectly in the end, flue and condensate pipes located correctly and fully working. A great improvement on our old boiler which was noisy and inefficient and I believe not working correctly for years despite the Gas Board’s efforts. Iain is an exemplary workman who is quick, tidy, clean and efficient and above all explains clearly what he is doing and how he is going to solve problems. I agree wholeheartedly with the “unreserved recommendation.”!

Based on the estimate Which provide for a simple loo unblocking they were very expensive. Responded quickly, efficient, effective but did leave me with a broken sink fitting (while unblocking the loo).

trader gave excellent service back in 2011 (see another review below) so I called Iain immediately when my own heating broke down a few weeks ago. He went the extra mile - several extra miles - to get things sorted out for us quickly. We've now got a new boiler, and it's working very well, and in fact the heating system is probably more effective than it has ever been. Before we settled on a new boiler, he tried repairs to the old one. He's very good at explaining what is going on, and I know something about these systems, so I am confident that we couldn't have kept going with the old boiler. Iain is quick, efficient, very knowledgeable, helpful, and trustworthy. Good value for money. This is an unreserved recommendation.

Used trader to replace some radiator valves. Iain did the work cleanly and well. When one of the radiators had a small leak afterwards (not Iain's fault - this was a different valve) he came back on his holiday to repair it. I've found his work to be neat & tidy and it is also noticeable that he is particularly knowledgeable - more so that most in my experience. I'd use this company before others: good attitude, good knowledge and good workmanship.

Stuart is a very pleasant young man keen to do a good job. Turns up on time to quote and do the work. I was very pleased with the replacement radiator in my bathroom and the new radiator he installed in my lounge. I went to work in the morning and came home to find the job completed and everything put back as before. Pleased with price. Will use Stuart again.
