Thanks so much for the work you have either done yourself or project managed using your local trade contacts. Undertaking and supervising a complete refurb on our holiday cottage from roofing to flooring and all rooms in between was quite a project especially when we are not local to Cornwall so finding someone as trustworthy and enthusiastic as yourself was a real bonus. The before and after photos speak for themselves! David

House refurb

"Julius did a really good job at my home in Carbis Bay.  Internal doors were hung expertly, panelling in the bedroom looks great and the new kitchen return makes the old kitchen look new and is a real feature of the kitchen diner.  What made this better still was that the return was made with wood and panels from part of the old kitchen.  So saved money and the environment!"

"Julius has recently completed our Millboard decking. He and Andy did a terrific job. From start to finish the job went very smoothly. Julius communicated with the suppliers for us and organised the delivery of the boards, even when we needed a few more, they were there in a day! He has been on training courses with Millboard and this is evident in the quality of workmanship.A pleasure to have a craftsman who knows what he is doing ! Very professional and would highly recommended,


Millboard decking – Very professional

St Ives property maintenance, did an excellent job .It wasn’t a straight forward build , a few quirky problems needed to be addressed. Julius is a great problem solver and rose to the challenge. The quality of the workmanship is second to none. It was a pleasure to have him working on this project. I would highly recommend him to anyone for the high standard of his workmanship, and professionalism.

Many thanks

Julius did a very thorough job in replacing our decking and fully met our expectations. Excellent!


Excellent decking.

Julius did a great job of a total refurbishment of our shower room in our holiday let ‘The Net Loft’ in St Ives. We are very pleased with the standard of his workmanship and his attention to detail. Thanks

Great job

Oh my goodness- what a guy!
I cannot rate Julius’ work highly enough. Julius was extremely professional from quote to completion and has constructed the most beautiful decking for me. Julius had a few major curve balls thrown his way to say the least (including the discovery of a pre existing oil leak!), but he overcame every hurdle and truly went above and beyond.
I am so grateful to Julius for everything he did at my property, he is a true professional and absolutely true to his word from start to finish (I have found this a non existent quality with many workmen of late). I would only go to him for future work from now on.
Thank you, Julius! You’ve given my property a new lease of life!

Oh my goodness- what a guy!

Julius did a very thorough job in replacing our decking and fully met our expectations. Excellent!

Re; path pressure washing at Ropewalk PZ on behalf of a disabled tenant TR.

I contacted St Ives Property Maintenance on behalf of a disabled lady that we support, I received a very prompt response and Julius came out to see the work that needed doing within a couple of days. The lady moved into this property earlier this year and the paths had not been cleaned for a long time and were thick with moss and algae and very slippery. The job done was excellent and the paths are completely free of moss etc now and have been treated so that it should be some time before it needs doing again.
Many Thanks

Pressure washing

Julius has done a number of jobs at our holiday home. He is very reliable and gets the job done to a really good standard. We are delighted with our renovated floor and our new fencing. We would highly recommend.
Happy Xmas

Flooring and Garden Fence

Julius has done an excellent job of refitting my bathroom, en-suite shower and cloakroom. Everything has been taken out, reconfigured and completely refitted and is looking really good - Julius has taken a lot of trouble over the work and communication has been really good throughout the project. I am very happy with the results - all the rooms are transformed.

Best regards

2 Bathroom and a cloakroom

Hello Julius,

This is a message to whoever might be interested.

Julius worked on my property in Downderry Cornwall during the very wet spring of 2017. The work comprised the complete replacement of existing decking and other building maintenance works.
The property was empty and I live abroad with the result that his work was unsupervised for the vast majority of his time working there.
I came to rely upon his judgement and suggestions with the result that I now have a new decking and repaired building that I am very pleased with.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for both his work and integrity.

Decking testimonial

Installing our replacement deck went without a hitch. The final product looks great and seems to be of very high quality. Julius was really on the ball, easy to deal with and accommodating. He was prompt in replying to all emails and phone-calls and sent a comprehensive quote which he kept to.

We arranged a date well in advance and he turned up on the agreed date with all the materials, tools and energy ready to go. He finished in the estimated time period and was all done and dusted, having sent the invoice with no delay. JB Services definitely comes recommended!
