Customer reviews for this trader
I found Julian's website from the Trusted Trader, the reviews which were already there encouraged me to contact him. I emailed Julian in regard to a rising damp problem identified by the survey in a house I'm buying. Julian was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and clear with his suggestions. The advice he gave helped me to make some informed decisions, plus no charge was made. Even though we never met face to face our communication was by email and phone. I would definitely recommend Julian and not hesitate to contact him again for future projects. All best wishes to Julian. Many Thanks.
I have been impressed with Julian. Unlike many contractors who are happy to take the easiest option and put old appliances unwanted my customers into landfill he made the effort to find a new home for an unwanted bathroom suite. I now have a new suite and a toilet etc have been saved from landfill. He was very pleasant to deal with .
A brilliant job. Julian was good to deal with and he and his apprentice worked very well leaving no mess. I would certainly do business with them again. Many thanks
We have been using Julian at Cressbrook for a while now. New shower room and repairs to house. Great service and super knowledgeable and professional. Very happy and highly recommended.
Not used Julian for a work but was very impressed with his commitment to the environment.. we acquired a used kitchen for my daughter for free, the bits not needed he took to the recycling centre.. very helpful and pleasant man
Julian called as promised to look at the work we wanted doing, but unfortunately due to his work commitments, he was unable to meet our start date.
Julian was brilliant to deal with, great communication, problem solving and trustworthy. I would totally recommend.
Julian and the tradesmen he uses are all friendly, helpful and have done a really good job doing the structural alterations on our home to make the downstairs open plan and they fitted a new kitchen in the process. Julian managed all the work required and always turned up when he said he would which I consider is very important. When extra work was needed that was not apparent beforehand it was completed without any fuss. I would use Julian again if we carried out any further work on our home and would recommend him.
Julian has been doing work on my house for a couple of months now, including fitting a new wooden floor and a new bathroom plus a few other bits of house maintenance. He has been great to work with, very knowledgeable and with helpful ideas and suggestions. He has taken care of other services skip, electricians, plastering, tiling and all of them have been highly skilled professionals. They have all been a dream to deal with and made everything neat and tidy when they were done. Finished bathroom and floor look brilliant! I have no hesitation in recommending them, and looking forward to using Julian again in the future.
Julian and his associates were friendly, punctual, did exactly what was agreed and kept the job clean and tidy. The specialist trades electrician, plasterer and plumber were all of a high standard. The project was well managed throughout by Julian and w e were kept updated on progress. Our project was quite varied with the installation of steel beams and formation of internal walls. Water had to be brought into the building and drainage out and new Velux windows fitted but all was done seamlessly under Julian's control. We would highly recommend Julian Wright Maintenance and Improvements.
Julian did a great job from planning to completion. Helpful, thorough future-proofing the work he did, organised, efficient, tidy. Would certainly very much recommend Julian. Job done: new bathroom.
I started to use Julian a few years ago through Trusted Trader. I was very impressed by his knowledge and also offering a fair price. The quality of work done and also the communication we had from him was brilliant. I was so impressed we have had him again and again and again.
Julian and his team were a pleasure to work with. He arrived on time, did exactly what he said he'd do and cleaned up after they had finished the project. The specialist trades he brought in electrician and plumber were both of equal high standard. It is without hesitation that I recommend Julian Wrights Maintenance and Improvements.
Excellent advice and service.
Julian was polite and very helpful. He found and explained the reason for the leak at my property very promptly. I wouldn't hesitate in using his services again and would highly recommend him.
Julian completed a kitchen re-furb for us, and we are really impressed with the level of service, fair price and overall finish of the work. He dealt with any problems that cropped up with ease being an old house, there were a few! Pulled all the trades together, sorted out the 'extra' work that we decided we needed, and ensured we were kept up-to-date at all times. His apprentice Jim was brilliant, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Julian to anyone looking for a Trusted Trader for their project.
Julian has carried out a number of improvements in and around my property over the last four years. A complete rebuild of both my kitchen and bathroom going back to brick and building from there. On both these jobs his understanding and interpretation of my brief was excellent. He again built an outdoor home office again helping with the design and offering constructive advice. Lately he has replaced a bedroom /landing floor. On all the work carried out by Julian and his associates there has always been a great sense of satisfaction and his work is exemplary. I gave since recommended Julian to friends and I know that they too have been extremely satisfied with his knowledge, expertise and more importantly his ability to do a great job
My mum's walk-in shower bathroom refurbishment had become an essential adaptation to enable her to keep living in her own home. Julian and his assistant, Jim, did a highly professional job - tidy workers, kept to schedule, good attention to detail, excellent at checking each stage of the job with mum as the client and making suggestions to make it even more suited to her needs, trustworthy and reliable. I would recommend Julian Wrights' maintenance and improvements company, without hesitation, to anyone who needs a complete bathroom refurbishment with minimal disruption for an elderly person.
Mr Wright and his assistance, were very clear, efficient and pleasant to deal with.
I would not hesitate in recommending Julian. From the initial survey of the job Julian was knowledgeable and his advice left us feeling confident in his ability. During the renovation of our shower room Julian and his likeable apprentice Jim worked tirelessly and with great attention to detail. We could not be more pleased with the finished product! Many thanks to Julian and Jim!
I did not know that Julian was a Trusted Trader. He coordinated all the work done on our house,so was responsible not only for his own work but that of others. There was regular communication and dialogue and excellent advice given when asked for. This included making a lot of decisions on my behalf and in my absence. All our requests were dealt with efficiently and work completed to a good standard. I would not hesitate to use Julian again for further home improvement work.
Wall removal, RSJ installation, making good and plastering alongside building control certificate. Julian is reliable and punctual, turned up when he said he would, provided an accurate estimate and completed the work within the timeframe. Julian oversaw the project management liaising with structural engineer and providing a good team to get the work done. Quality of finished work was excellent. Julian is trustworthy and friendly, provides options for consideration and leaves a tidy work place at the end of each day. Pretty much all the things you want from someone coming in to undertake building work.
Julian oversaw the renovation of my house - some things he did himself and others he sub-contracted. So he worked for me both as overall project manager and then did a lot of the work himself - installed the kitchen, remodelled a bathroom and various bits of joinery. Julian was great to work with - he managed the team and got everything done to a very high standard. He was very communicative and a pleasure to work with. His joinery is excellent and I'm very pleased with the results.
Had absolute confidence in this man. Took his time but did the job properly. One or two hiccups aren't there always? But eventually got sorted. He does a really good job.
Julian installed a shower room into our house and did an excellent job. He helped us understand what could be done in old house like ours, but still took the ideas we had and helped us make them a reality. His work was of a high standard and we are really satisfied with the result. He completed the work on time and pretty much within budget, always keeping us in touch with what was happening and generally keeping disruption to a minimum. We would definitely recommend him to others.
We found Julian very amenable and willing to spend time discussing the project. We thought the work carried out by him and the cabinet makers Bryan Callaghan-Gratton and Rob was to a very high standard and found him totally trustworthy. The price was very fair compared to the alternatives we considered. The work took longer than expected although we did ask him to do extra work on top of what was originally agreed and the results were very good. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to people we know.
Julian carried out the work, new back door and kitchen modifications to achieve the hoped-for results, and made some good additional suggestions - which I adopted.
