What does a carpenter do?

Whether you’re planning a major renovation on your home or you simply want to make things look a bit nicer, hiring a carpenter can help you with many different tasks. 

Carpentry work is generally broken down into two types: rough and finish. Rough carpentry refers to work that doesn’t have an intricate look, as it’s covered up – often by bricks, tiles or plaster work. Finish carpentry covers the work that will be on display, so needs to have a nicer finish. Furniture, decking and window frames all fall into this second category. 

Decking

Many Australian homes are blessed with a large backyard and plenty of sunny hours to enjoy that space. A decking specialist can add an outdoor deck or upgrade an existing one that opens up your outdoor space. This is great if you want to entertain guests or eat outside as a family during the sunny months. 

Cabinet making

Cabinet makers are one example of finish carpentry, because of the high level of detail that goes into their end products. Unlike structural work, it’s important that a cabinet looks nice, so this type of carpenter is a lot more focussed on fine details. Cabinet makers often specialise in other forms of furniture making too. 

Refinishing carpentry

While structural carpentry is concerned with jobs on the large end of the scale, trim or refinishing carpentry looks at the small end. A trim carpenter is the way to go if you want someone to fix up your skirting boards, cornicing or a similar aspect of your home.

Custom made furniture

A house isn’t a home without a few personal touches, and if you’d rather avoid the cookie-cutter Ikea approach to decorating your property, hiring a carpenter to create custom made furniture can make you stand out. Whether you want chairs, tables or a shoe rack, there’s someone nearby who can help.

We need a structural engineer to assess a roof

$10

Prahran, VIC

3rd Jun 2021

REVISED BUDGET TO ALLOW FOR SCOPING WORKS It's a near-flat roof which needs to support a ~300kg tank for a heat pump driven hot water system. It requires inspection and certification and if (probably) needed, a plan a builder can follow for reinforcement. It's just for that section of the roof shown at the top of the photo — presumably the tank would go up against the wall. I've allowed for 8 hours at what appears to be the going rate for structural engineers; but am ready to stand corrected (up or down). It would help a lot if it could be done as soon as possible.

Bradley knows what he's doing. He does it with good spirit.

External timber screen built and installed

$300

Coburg VIC, Australia

16th Jun 2021

Slatted timber external screen plus framing built and installed to one end of open veranda. Anchor points for frame will be timber side of house and the pillar of the verandah, which I think is something like fibreglass (will be relatively easy to anchor to using anchors for hollow walls). Given the width (2100mm) I think it will need a centre strut anchored to the ground (red brick) to stop the timber’s bowing over time. We are looking to have this built out of merbau or similar dark stained timber, but we’ve not bought materials. Happy to negotiate on the purchase of materials as part of task. Dimension approx 2100mm wide x 2100mm high. Fee is exclusive of materials.
