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 plasterwork. 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.

Hey there, my name is Tom. I need to hire a handyperson to help me in Balham, Greater London. What do you need done? Carpentry What is the type of property? Townhouse Which areas of the property need work? Garden shed What would you like the handyperson to work on? I’m looking to turn my shed into a bit of a bar/ pub/ man cave type build to make use of for summer. I’ve attached a few pictures of the shed as it stands, electrics already in place. I’ve also attached a few pics of the sort of thing I’m after. The main things I’m wanting to do are: 1) switch hinges on door so it opens the other way 2) cut large hole / bar-window out of the front of the shed (attach locks to inside) 3) bar tops and shelving along front of shed and down the 4.3m stretch on the left hand side 4) remove the shelving on the right hand side I’m also happy to hear your thoughts on what else you think you could do/ ideas you’ve got. I’m looking to get someone in over next few weeks. Tom
