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.

Fit glazing using aluminium section etc

£500

The Borough, Greater London

27th Jan 2020

We have some office partition that needs fitting by an experienced carpenter who has an eye for detail and who can work with aluminium and glass. Details of the project can be viewed here: https://[Content Moderated] /s/b[Content Moderated] Once someone has got their head round this is should go together and up pretty quick. All materials are provided and on site. I would estimate this will take 2 people 2 or so days if you know what you are doing. Thanks! More details: - The door and doorframe comes as a completely pre-made assembly to fit. - Glass units are already made to size and go floor to ceiling. - Aluminum section bars/beams between them need cutting on site to length and fitting with silicone sealant. - This is all fitted to an existing suspended chipboard floor which needs cutting out with a circular saw so the frame is set into the floor, so you need to be a competent joiner/carpenter. - Full drawings are drawn for you to follow.

Josh was terrific, he handled a highly complex task involving carpentry, metal fabrication and electrics with ease. Great guy! Highly recommended.
