Why book a local carpenter through Airtasker?

Carpentry plays a massive part in building and construction. From the chairs we sit on to the homes we live in, so much of what we interact with has gone through the hands of a carpenter at one point.

Carpenters can help with different types of construction work and projects of all sizes. If you’re building an extension or adding a carport to your home, an experienced carpenter can create a frame that’s built to last and meets all council regulations.

On the other hand, if you’re looking at the finer details of your home, a carpenter can be of great assistance too. From small detailing like replacing skirting boards or wall frames to refurbishing your dining table and chairs, hiring a skilled labourer can make all the difference.

With Airtasker, you can quickly and easily find the best carpenter in your area for your job. Simply tell us what you’re looking for, where you’re based, and what your budget is, and we’ll connect you with the people with the most relevant carpentry skills in your area. You can then browse profiles, read reviews and get in touch with your favourite carpenter near your location to get your project underway!

Top Carpentry related questions

Carpenters work with wood in all manner of ways. From timber framing for a house or carport to the finishing touches on furniture, carpenters are hired for jobs large and small.
In Australia, certified carpenters will have normally completed a Certificate III (or above) in Carpentry and Joinery, or a similar course through TAFE, and an apprenticeship. You may find that older carpenters learned their skills through a traineeship.
Not all carpenters offer the same services. An experienced cabinet maker may not be the best choice if you want timber framing done, while a decking expert may not have the credentials to refurbish your furniture. Picking someone with experience in your field is a great way to get high-
While some carpenters have specific areas of expertise, you can employ someone to do a number of small woodworking jobs in one visit. This can be the same job in a number of rooms or different jobs throughout the house. Remember though that some carpentry jobs require more than one day to complete.
Depending on their specialty and level of training, you may find that a carpenter comes under a different name. From specific tasks such as cabinet maker to more general terms like artisan, joiner or woodworker, there are plenty of variations for carpentry workers.
The average price of carpentry services on Airtasker is $250, but depending on the service you need, this can easily range from $120 to $450.

For certain types of carpentry tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

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.
