Lime plastering

James has done an excellent job with lime plastering inside our property, in addition to several other varied jobs (replacing garden gates, fixing some gaps and cracks in external render, updating a house alarm/security system).

Communication has been fabulous, as has been the quality of all work, and James is a pleasant and professional person to have around.

Highly recommended and, as with the previous reviewer, we hope to book in further work in the near future!

Peter- Frenchay
Bristol-Lime Plastering Grade 2* listed chapel

James did us proud with matching lime plastering for our ancient chapel in Frenchay. Dedicated service and tidiness.

Lime Plastering Clevedon

“James visited to quote for two small w/c rooms in our Georgian town house. His knowledge of period properties and techniques that were sympathetic to an old building like ours were what led us to go ahead. He later applied a 3 coat system of lime plaster and putty to the external walls and gypsum plaster to the interior surfaces.

James was polite, professional and a pleasure to have around. James kept us updated on his movements between visits and was trusted with access even when we were out. We were happy with the quality of the work and will look to book in further works in the not so distant future.”

We would fully recommend his plastering services others.

Bristol-Brick wall build and rendering Bristol

“We had a tricky piece of work done requiring gaps to be filled in a small wall with some brickwork, adding drainage, rendering to neaten it up and shaping to finish nicely. James did a great job, is really friendly and had a great level of communication throughout to check we were happy with the work. We’re very happy with the work he’s done for us! “


“I contacted CJ Home Maintenance early this year regarding various work that needed to be done, having read some very good reviews. James has since insulated the loft and successfully carried out repairs to the garage roof which was leaking badly in several places. Both jobs were carried out promptly and to a high standard. We have agreed on other work that needs to be carried out in the near future. James is a multi skilled professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him”.


“James has done various jobs for me over the last year – chiseling out brickwork to then enable him to mortar in cast-iron air-bricks, boxing in various pipes and cables, and helping to resolve a front door that kept jamming. He has always been friendly, with works completed quickly and well, and with great communication throughout. Looking forward to seeing them for the next job I need done (fixing a floor joist) in (checks calendar) about 2 weeks”

St Andrews, Bristol

“We recently moved to Bristol and James has done a number of pieces of work for us now as we get our new house sorted out. He has fitted a new doorbell and postbox, painted our front door, renovated our under stairs cupboard, fitted new exterior lights and a number of other things. In all cases James has done excellent quality work for the price agreed in advance, and we will definitely be using him again in future. James is also a polite, friendly and professional person, and a pleasure to have in the house. Recommended”.


“We hired James to rip out our hedge and put up a fence. He was very professional and the fence is set with concrete posts and very sturdy. We also hired him to come back and build our shed and again, very prompt and professional. I should note this wasn’t an easy job as of where we wanted the shed put up. But he looked at the situation and decided the best course of action to get the shed up and safely. Had no problems with any work James has done for us.”

“James is a true all round craftsman and can turn his hand to any form of DIY. He was great with the kids and dog! Wouldn’t hesitate to use him again”.


“Highly recommended! We have now had James for a whole host of different jobs for us at two properties, both big and small, including strengthening / boarding our attic. James has always done a great job and been a joy to have around! “

Shirehampton, Bristol

“We used CJ Home Maintenance to remove our large hedge and erect a wooden fence. James used concrete posts and base boards to make the fencing secure. We were really pleased with the excellent work he did. James did a fantastic job and we wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.”

Cotham, Bristol

“James has just refurbished and painted my oriel window(bay) on my Georgian terraced house with a paint he recommended and it looks superb and i am very happy. What i liked so much was he kept me informed all the way through-when he would start, when stop and return etc with a short text. He did what it said on the tin! Highly recommended and am using him again as soon as he has space- he’s so popular because he’s so good!.”


“Had loads of jobs done by CJ Home Maintenance-Exterior bath stonework, painting, ceiling leak repairs etc. Reliable and always to a very high standard. Highly recommended.”


“Has done a few jobs for me from painting a front door to fixing a downpipe that came detached in a storm to sanding a floor. Helpful, friendly and ive always been pleased with the results.”

Kingswood, Bristol

“I have used CJ Home Maintenance for various jobs around my house. Their work is always to a high standard and have found them to be reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them.


“Quick and professional work! Thankyou James for fitting the garage door, it fits perfectly and the lock works and has stood the test of the winter weather. Quick job and professional finish.”

James and his team are both efficient and passionate about their work. Ours was an older property that needed quite a bit of repair after storm damage and general ageing/wear and tear. James assessed and priced the job expertly and was on hand to answer questions throughout the project. I would highly recommend CJ Maintenance for building works across the board.
James has done a great job on my lime repointing, he has used traditional materials sourced locally.
Very happy with the job all round.
