Paterson Home Improvements

I run a home improvements company that specialises in small to medium size jobs/contracts and covers a wide spectrum of work- basic build/install or start-to-finish(ie Planning/Building Warrant through to decoration). Business built strongly on recommendations & previous customers returning for more work. Lots of experience in our industry and have had the same workforce for many,many years-polite,respectful & quality tradesmen who take a pride in their work,as do I. Thanks for looking at us.

About Paterson Home Improvements

I originally was a Civil Servant upon leaving school and this did give me an excellent grounding in the value of good paperwork/organizational skills and also working as part of a team.
From there I moved into sales with United Biscuits,firstly as a Merchandiser/Trainee Salesman rising quickly to Salesman then to Area Sales Trainer to National Sales Trainer and Relief Area Manager.
Next step was into the Home Improvements market,originally with C.R.Smith, progressing through to running the Conservatory division at Farleys in Edinburgh and lastly with P.M. Sinclair,where I learned a lot about the Building Industry in general.
Upon starting my own company,I have done a lot of varied work from fitting windows to kitchens to garden sheds to house renovations! I do consider the company to be very versatile in our work capability. However,I would not undertake a job which was outwith my remit and make a hash of it.


10 "O" Levels, 1 Higher grade, SHNC in Business Studies.
Member of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
Member of Federation of Small Businesses. I am not a qualified tradesman but can do very basic jobs;what I do have is excellent tradesmen upon whom I can trust implicitly and do first-class work without any fuss or ado. I do know what is involved in any work I undertake and my main skill is in Project Managing the work. I am on site virtually every day and often get "my hands dirty" as the saying goes.
I work extremely hard on "The Personal Touch"- may sound a bit old & corny-but there is still a place for this today.

  • Replace/replace front door, remove some brickwork.

    Absolutely over the moon with our new front door and internal joinery work completed by the wonderful Team at Patersons Home Improvements 🙌

    They were reliable, professional and always there to support us through out the renovation.

    I would highly recommend this company to anyone who was looking to have work completed within their home !

    Thanks a million 😊

  • Replace bathroom window

    Professional from the outset. Clear and concise about costs and process. The tradesmen were friendly and extremely competent. Without question, a company I’d use again and one I’d definitely recommend.

  • Convert rear door into window

    A pleasure to deal with from start to finish. A comprehensive (and reasonable) quote provided by Alan for a window replacement, converting a door into a window and installation of ventilation fans. The work carried out by the team was to a superb standard with excellent communication throughout the process. I will definitely be using again.
