Restoration & Decorating since 1996


Hometrades provides office services to three home restoration & decorating teams. Our three teams have been trained by us over several years and now manage their own fully insured businesses. In this way we achieve accountability and know they meet our high standards of customer care and product knowledge in application of specialist resins, paints and restoration plasters and cements. All our teams are developed in this manor and subject to Hometrades code of conduct.



Our service


Myself Nigel Rendle, having been involved in financial services in London in the 80s buying developing and selling many domestic properties, I enjoyed the opportunity of visiting high end beautifully restored and decorated homes. This interested and excited me more than the financial side of property development, and motivated me to be directly involved in the restoration process in my home city of Bristol.


In 1996, we established ourselves on Gloucester Road and in 2009 moved to Clifton to specialise in working with customers that require a more personalised service. As a local group we have worked together since that time specialising in our specific area of restoration and decorating.


Our group structure means we are able to take on any project large or small, I would be pleased to meet with you and provide you with an itemised estimate of cost including detailed process of work and schedule.

    Have an old cornice or ceiling rose that has been over-painted, losing its detail and features?


    We can use Peel Away to remove the excess paint and return your home to its original style and splendour.


    We use Gyproc Easi Fill as a new alternative solution for restoring lath and plaster walls, previously pink plaster applied over the top of of these beautiful old walls is glued on with PVA and loses detail on skirtings, pictures rails and coving. Easi Fill is applied in a thin skim before hand sanding back to the original wall with vaccum sanders providing a beautiful original smooth finish.
