"We can highly recommend Nigel Burns. He has done a fair bit of work for us. The two main projects being:- 1. 2009 Bathroom conversion with installation of new suite. 2. 2012 Complete restructuring of a new kitchen with installation of all units. tiling, flooring and electrical work carried out also. Both big projects and can honestly say that he is a very reliable workman - and a perfectionist with regards to his work. Quality of work deserves an A1 Rating. Job started on time and on budget. Does not leave premises without clearing up. The help given at the early stages with regard to planning etc., was carried out very professionally. Nothing was a bother - our satisfaction was the main goal. Cannot recommend him highly enough - All jobs done to our complete satisfaction. Very helpful with regards to the design and planning of both projects. Would not hesitate to recommend Trades Direct."     MR & MRS MUNRO

​"Trades Direct worked in my home installing new windows and doors throughout.  I can not fault the service provided from survey to after-care.  They phoned when they said they would, turned up when they said they would, I was kept up to speed of progress from the initial phone call to completion.  The installers took considerable care of my property ensuring that my house was clean and tidy before leaving each evening.  Very reliable, professional and the workmanship was faultless.  Restored my faith in builders therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending them."     Mrs P Stoddart.

​"I highly recommend Trades Direct for any job, large or small. The communication with Tania and Nigel was excellent throughout, and they were always on hand with sound advice when needed. Having a 12 month labour guarantee on their work is also excellent for piece of mind.  Thank you for being so reliable professional and easy to deal with throughout the work-it really makes a big difference when you feel that you can trust contractors, and I certainly felt that when dealing with this company. I will certainly recommend you to friends and family and will no doubt be back in touch with you in future if we decide to get more work done.."                              Mr & Mrs Hume, Edinburgh

"We get on well with Nigel and he does very good work. He is very open and he explains things clearly. He is very keen to deliver exactly what we want. He looks to see whether he is going to be able to complete the task before he starts it - i.e. he thoroughly checked the plans before he started and in on one or two cases found them to be wrong and he had he built according to the plan it would have required expensive changes to the work. I am delighted with the job, he does high quality work, he leaves the site clean, tidy and safe at the end of each day. I would certainly recommend him."     MR GUTHRIE, EDINBURGH​

My family and I have used Trades Direct for over 4years now covering all our building and maintenance work on our flats and houses.
We have received excellent workmanship to a very high standard at fair pricing and always on time.  We have no hesitation in recommending them for all building / installation and maintenance requirements.

​"Very organised from start to finish. Nigel came bang on time and did a really neat job and, unlike some tradespeople i've had in, didnt spend half his time on the phone. Probably because there someone to do the admin work who is very efficient and organised. Great job.."     Mrs Cumming, Edinburgh.

​"Excellent all round service from communications to the sheer quality of workmanship. Tania also managed to source a last minute addition to my door on the day of installation which exceeded my expectations. I'd definitely recommend this company - they are very professional and treat your home with care and respect, meaning you come home to a spotless home with no debris to clear up. Thank you Trades Direct - i'll definitely use you again and have already recommended you to friends and family.."     Mrs Robertson.
