Connor did a fantastic job and was very helpful. We will definitely use him in the future. I highly recommend him.

Decking repair

£200

Very efficient, neat, communicative and did a wonderful job on the window sill.

Replace shelf with sill under sash window

£120

Very good quality job. He delivered neatly a fix in a balcony that was not straight forward and left it looking very good. Same with the kitchen job. Honest and quick, would hire him again

Handyperson/carpenter needed

£250

Unfortunately our job didn't go entirely to plan so I can't give 5 stars. Derek did however go above and beyond to try to make things right, and throughout the job he was completely clear in terms of communications, costs and turning up on time (he did overrun, but when a job doesn't go to plan that's pretty much inevitable).

Build desk in bay window

£60

Excellent work!! Above and beyond - efficient, clean and an eye for detail. Will definitely work with agave again.

Repaint ceiling stains (after a leak)

£100

Wonderful man, i will high him again. Conor work hard with dedication to a good standards. Reliable & on time. Accept a great price offer. Which he is not greedy. Ppl are more likely to high him with more jobs ahead.. EXCELLENT SERVICE.!!!! 👍

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. 

Decking

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.

Joinery

Joinery services encompass the craftsmanship of creating and joining wood in workshops, distinct from on-site carpentry. These services range from bespoke projects to crafting timber buildings, emphasizing precision and passion. Joiners play a crucial role in interior woodwork, window and door production, and specialized construction, offering tailored and quality timber solutions.
