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. Carpenters take on a wide range of work, such as fixing areas of houses and building furniture from scratch.

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. 


Don't know what to do with all that space in your backyard? Hire a carpenter who specialises in building decks. 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

Cabinetmakers 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 focused on fine details. Cabinetmakers 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.

Install new microwave

4th Oct 2023

I have a built in microwave which has been glitching for a while and now has properly given up. I need someone to take it out, buy one that fits and then install it. The suggested price would obviously exclude the price of the microwave itself. A very simple one will do. You never use any of the fancy stuff they supposedly do anyway. - Due date: Flexible

Garden decking, door repair, paint


Clapham Common, Greater London, SW4

17th Jun 2023

Garden decking repair Door repair with minor touch Repaint Basic other minor things before new tenants move in Exact details as requested are as follows: Happy to negotiate the price further. 1. Decking in garden - floorboards are wobbly/sticking up, wood is rotting in some places. 2. The wood on the bifold doors from the 2nd bedroom/office could do with treating to prevent decay. 3. There is some mould in the bathroom above the shower and window. 4. The dishwasher cabinet cover in the kitchen is peeling off. 5. The front bedroom windows have some paint stains and could do with some attention. There's also one window that is not frosted though I think we should be able to sort that ourselves. 6. The gate in the garden could do with a lock that can be accessed from both sides. Also the wood on the gate is decaying so may be worth considering replacing the gate. 7. The planter outside has a panel sticking out. - Due date: Flexible

Townhouse Which areas of the property need work? Garden shed What would you like the handyperson to work on?

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
