Good job, thankyou!

Sand down a table ready for refinishing

£50

Martin is an experienced all-rounder and I would describe him as above average in terms of his skills and his application, I have no complaints at all. He turned up on time, professionally equipped and dealt with all requests politely and without fuss, this was a tricky threshold job which involved some skill, perseverance and problem-solving. Plus he took care moving around working inside my house which for me is a definite bonus. I'm happy to vouch for him.

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.

Install skirting boards jn main bedroom

£120

Streatham Vale, Greater London

11th Dec 2022

Install skirting boards in main bedroom (upstairs front room, see floor plan attached). We already have the skirting boards and some have been cut to size but not yet attached to the wall. There’s a wardrobe in the corner of the room opposite the door so installation would be around the wardrobe. A couple of the floorboards are uneven and from what I can tell, two of the skirtings would need to be graded around the floorboards. We initially intended to install them ourselves however we couldn’t get the angles in bay window accurate. We will have more work to do down the track, if you’re interested in some ongoing work that would be ideal for us. - Due date: Before Monday, 19 December 2022

Really happy with Ibukun’s work installing skirting boards in our bedroom. He was very considerate and tidy. Was quite late to the job however fortunately this didn’t impact us as we were home all day anyway. Thanks Ibukun!
