My goal is to provide my clients with reliable residential property maintenance and repair services at the right price, on time.


North Bris Maintenance is a service built on trust and focused on results. Owned and operated by me Steve Moncrieff, a lifelong north-sider offering maintenance solutions to homeowners and investors on Brisbane North.

Work approach

I am an old school tradie with old school work ethics that dictate a 'do it right, do it once' attitude. I don't entertain being mucked around and I assume you feel the same as well. I treat your house as if it is mine so you expect nothing less if you engage my services. I also have a tad of OCD and will reorganise your pantry if you turn your back.

Scope of work approach

On the odd occasion, clients have not liked what I have had to say in regards to repair and remediation advice. Not because I'm abrasive; on the contrary, these situations usually reflect clients not willing to respond with the necessary workmanship in the interest of saving a dollar or two. I get it. Doing things properly can cost a little more. 


In cases where I sense the client is not appreciative of what is required in terms of workmanship and best practise, I will not take the job. My experience tells me that nothing good ever comes out of taking client directions to just do the bare minimum and leave it at that. I know that I'll be back again a short time later to repair the repair and this is where potential conflicts can arise as a result. To avoid these situations, I uphold my reputation by choosing my work wisely and working with clients who share similar wisdom. 

So if you're an armchair expert who can't do the job (nor have the tools) but acquired virtual skills through watching a handful of YouTube clips, I'm not the bloke for you. Your supervisory skills, as well-meaning as they may be, might be better suited to a 'bash and crash' service offering tailgate warranties.

As far as my expertise is concerned, if your issue/s fall outside of my area of knowledge, I will tell you. No BS. I will then only refer you to tradies (where I can) who are client-focused, offer proven quality workmanship and are fairly priced.

Feel free to give me a call and we can have a chat about your needs. Also, please read my service terms prior to calling. It's important that you understand how I operate with regards to how I deliver my service and my expectations of when I should be paid.


Once you've made it on to my client base, these terms are waived for future work as we would've built a relationship, and accordingly, you are now entitled to a less formal arrangement as a token of my appreciation for choosing to engage my services again.

Steve is reliable and easy to work with. He listens, understands, uses his experience and skills to suggest ways of doing projects and produces quality work at a reasonable cost. Highly recommend his services.

The experience I had was exceptional. Hard to believe almost. His experience and way of communicating that was great to hear. No feelings of being pushed or feeling uncomfortable in anyway. Happy to pay , will do business with him again surely.

~ Ricardo - Aspley

I honestly don't think that I could have chosen a better tradesperson to complete our project. Thank you so much.

~ Tam and Emma - Clayfield

Excellent services received at a good price.

~ Stephen - Ferny Hills

Are you kidding - you are perfect! I recommended you to 4 people last night. 

~ Dearnne - Geebung

Steve was fantastic throughout. His communication was great, attention to detail in all the work that he did was sensational, he cleaned as he went and kept us up to date with progress, was upfront and honest from start to finish about material costs, time it would take and added helpful suggestions with tips and tricks to support the work he did in creating a spare room. We were incredibly impressed and appreciative and would definitely use again.

I recently bought a dollhouse for our daughter. Unfortunately, the assembly instructions to me resembled Egyptian hieroglyphics. Steve to the rescue, he masterfully put together the dollhouse in potentially record time. He then proceeded to play with the dollhouse for 15 minutes for what he said was “quality assurance purposes”. A good dude who has helped with many household to-dos over time and can confidently recommend to others.

Thanks, Steve for helping me fix the bathroom vanity. The requirement was a bit different to the usual vanity replacement and I appreciate you took that as a challenge. I had contacted at least 3 plumbers before and they were unable to find a solution.
