I can unreservedly recommend Julius and his team. They have now fitted 11 double glazed windows. All were made to measure sash windows in the original style of our 1905 house. The windows look wonderful. JJ carpentry workers are all highly skilled, conscientious and friendly. The work was done to schedule, budget and they always clean up afterwards.

Julius has done a number of jobs for us, including building cupboards under a staircase, and repainting, and installing non-standard double glass doors to, our sitting-room. All the work has been immaculate and to a very high standard and Julius and his assistants worked neatly, quietly and were a pleasure to to have in the house. I cannot recommend them too highly.

Julius has just built, installed and decorated a custom book case in my sitting room. During my initial conversation with Julius I found his advice and suggestions very helpful. The work was done promptly and efficiently, to a very high standard. I'm delighted with the result, the book case looks great and really enhances the room. I will certainly work with JJ Carpentry again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

JJ Carpentry have done a few jobs for us now including a bathroom renovation & tiling, plumbing, interior decorating and roof work. In terms of quality, workmanship, attention to detail and completing work to time & budget they are top class. They are also proactive in suggesting solutions to problems, hugely trustworthy and really nice, decent and honest people to do business with.

JJ Carpentry was recommended highly by our neighbours and after two fantastic contracts with them we’ve recommended JJ Carpentry to friends (good friends, ones we don’t want to lose).
JJ has so far installed hardwood floors and done a complete ground-up bathroom renovation for us. Both jobs were completed in time and on budget to top spec. As a designer / maker myself
I found the quality and price of their work unbeatable. Follow-up and customer support exceeded reasonable expectation.
My only hesitation in recommending JJ Carpentry is the fear that new business might fill their already busy schedule when we’re hoping to book them for a loft extension and second bathroom, pending planning permission.

I initially had little idea of what I wanted to do with the storage space. Upon Juliu's quotation visit, he talked through lots of ideas and constructively challenged mine. He provided a detailed sketch and priced the job very fairly.
I am impressed by the quality of work done and the amount of great storage space I now have. It turned out that there were some hidden pipes and other issues that complicated the job along the way. I was pleased that Julius didn't harp on the problems, but instead found a way around them while sticking to my budget. Nothing was a drama. Julius used his initiative where appropriate, but also checked with me first where a choice was involved. The job was finished very nicely indeed.

Fantastic job. Julius carried built us a bespoke storage cabinet and bookshelves for our landing - he was fast, efficient and tidy. We were quickly able to arrange a date and have now been able to store all our books and lots of children's toys away before Christmas. Job carried out to our immense satisfaction. Thanks very much!

Julius and his colleague worked until late and left the house immaculate. The work itself (removed UPVC door unit and replaced with a new hard wood door frame and door, plus window light above and fitted door locks and furniture) is of a very high standard and Julius thought of everything- overall very on the ball. We're absolutely delighted with the work they did and are definitely going to ask them to do more work for us in the new year. Highly recommend!

I was hugely impressed with the work Julius and his assistant have done in my property which needed two new fitted wardrobes, an alcove cupboard and floating shelves. They turned up on right on time every day and worked fast and efficiently. The finished units themselves were of superb quality: well shaped, open and shut smoothly and beautifully finished.
All of this was done at a competitive price and my property was left clean and tidy. There are very few tradesmen like him around and I would definitely give him a full recommendation and use him again if the need arises!

We commissioned Julius & team for a 2nd time after we were very pleased with the result of our study bookshelves & cabinets. The 2nd job was for two build in wardrobes. Julius presented clearly all the options and gave good advise to us on the best solutions. The men worked hard and the job was done quickly and with good eye for detail. We would recommend Julius & team to anyone, good value for money and very trustworthy.

Julius and his equally hardworking helper did a good job in contructing and painting 2 wardrobes to our specification within 3 days. Julius invested in the pre-hire communications and offered his detailed opinion on a couple of things he thought would not work with our design. During the job he was extremelly puntual, clean, honest and polite at all times. His price was competitive and the overall quality of his finish very good. When a couple of slight problems came up one or two weeks later, Julius was also very willing to come back and put things right without any hesitation.

My wife and I were looking for two built-in units, one bedroom wardrobe going right over the doorframe and a tv/drawers/shelving unit in the living room. Julius quote was competitive and in addition to that he was able to complete the job in just 4 days!
Considering he only came round the once to measure up, we just couldn't believe how good the finish was (especially with our uneven walls and ceilings). His attention to detail, quality of work, sound advice made him an absolute pleasure to work with.
We spent some time contemplating whether the additional cost of customised units was worth it... but with Julius on the case the answer is YES every time! This flat was a first time buy for my wife and I and although he probably does realise it, his work has really completed the move and made us feel like we have a home.
Thank you very much Julius!

Julius and his team did a great job on my kitchen. He helped me through the whole process and was was very communicative answering my emails and texts at all hours of the day.
I chose Julius because, out of all of the builders I asked to come and take a look at the work, he gave the most input and really helped me to shape what became the final layout of the kitchen. Plus he was very easy going and importantly for me showed a can do attitude, because I had little doubt that the age of the existing kitchen would likely present some problems during the job. The problems that Paul and his team did come across were dealt with swiftly.
I cannot recommend Julius enough, he led a beginner like myself through the process. Helping me to pick the kitchen units, reminding me of the materials that I hadn't even considered and even finding great value kitchen worktops that saved me nearly a thousand pounds!
I will definitely be using Julius and his team again in the future and am already talking to him about some other work that I'd like done.

Julius and his team have done a sensational job for us - replacing two large Victorian windows with double glazing, as well as re plastering our crumbling kitchen, sorting out the floor, and fitting new skirting boards and architrave. The work is to a brilliantly high standard and Julius has superb attention to detail. They were clean, tidy, punctual, and worked incredibly hard, so that the job was done in no time at all. Julius also has a great "can-do" approach to any enquiries and was keen to offer good advice and suggestions. His quotes are highly competitive and all work came in on budget, despite us changing our mind on things along the way! We are delighted and have already recommended him to friends - we hope to use him again soon!

COMPLETE 2 BEDROOM VICTORIAN FLAT REFURB
Julius and his team did an excellent job in completely transferring our run down and old 2 bedroom Victorian flat. This involved everything from installing new solid wood flooring, complete re plastering and painting, removing old doors and architrave and replacing with new, new electrics, sanding old stairs and giving them a complete new lease of life (they were in a terrible state) and removing our very old kitchen and installing a complete new one.
Our flat is now unrecognisable and we are extremely happy.
The team were a pleasure to have a around, always on time, tidy and polite. They helped us to make decisions on fixtures and fittings and Julius ordered them for us.

Overall, I couldn't be happier with the service I received from Juliu's and his team and I am thrilled with my new bathroom.
In particular, they finished the project exactly on time and to budget. The standard of finish is excellent and the team have a very good attention to detail so there is nothing I am unhappy about. There were also a few tricky problems to solve (at least they seemed tricky to me!) but Julius solved each of these with flair and came up with great ideas that I hadn't thought of. He was also really helpful when it came to answering all my questions, came up with suggestions when I had problems making decisions and was really accomodating to all my ideas.
What is more, although I have a small flat and there was a lot of equipment and dust, the team were very tidy, did their best to keep all the tools and bathroom bits out of the way and kept to a minimum any dust that ended up elsewhere in the flat. They also cleaned up after themselves.
First class service, I would definitely hire again.

They have done a lot of different jobs around the house. This has included supplying and fitting a kitchen cabinet, fitting wall cupboards in the utility room, refitting garden roof sheets and a substantial amount of external painting. The work is of a very high standard, Julius is very thorough and checks the work of his workmen carefully. I am happy to leave them alone in my house and know that Julius will contact me if he has any queries. I think their quotes are very reasonable for the quality of the work and I will be using them again for some work in the summer.

My wooden cellar steps had started to rot and when I fell through the second bottom one something had to be done. Julius has built me splendid new steps which can be removed, useful because I subsequently had a gas leak at a point where the pipe ran behind the steps. Access could have been frightful. He also clad one of the walls so that my gas and electricity meters are now properly supported and the whole place looks respectable. It took a day and there was no mess.
