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.

Remove carpet


Wanstead Flats, Greater London

13th Feb 2024

Removing carpet (and anything underneath, e.g. underflooring/padding) from a small room (12"0 x 9"11) to go back to the wooden flooring underneath. The room currently has a small amount of furniture inside (e.g. desk, shelving cabinet) which will need to be worked around. I do not have the required tools so you will need to bring these. CLARIFICATION: I do not need you to dispose of the carpet; I will handle that myself.

IKEA PAX wardrobe - built & fit into wall to make fully fitted


Leytonstone, Greater London, E11

12th Feb 2024

I have a PAX IKEA wardrobe ordered which I need assembled. I would also like this to be fitted into the wall (so it looks like it's a fully fitted wardrobe). The width of the PAX is 350cm and the width of the wall (which it needs fitted into) is 370cm. The height of the PAX wardrobe is 236cm and the height from floor to ceiling is approx 241cm. So the amount of MDF needed to fit the wardrobe so it's fitted in is roughly 5cm on the height and 20cm on the width. Hope this makes sense and please let me know if you are available next week to fit/build in and prices.

Wood board on window sill


Dalston, Greater London, E8

22nd Nov 2023

Hello – I would need to get a window board to cover my sill (please see photos). Perhaps MDF wood, in black, to be glued on my sill. I don’t have any particular instructions as long as my sill is covered. I am happy to adjust details / price according to your recommendations. Many thanks! Mathieu - Due date: Flexible

Absolutely delighted with Christian’s work, which looks frankly terrific. Don’t let his lack of reviews put you off, Christian is incredibly professional, very efficient, easy to speak to, having your interests at heart! My job was a tad tricky, with a need of a matching black board for the sill of my black window. Christian couldn’t find it at first but managed to source it eventually and did a pristine work! Highly recommend him.

Refurbish bedroom: refinish walls + new carpet


Haggerston, Greater London, E2

2nd Nov 2023

- clean off mould in corner of room - where the walls and ceiling have holes or damage, refinish - repaint walls and ceiling - in a couple of places the skirting has been removed, (about 370cm total). Either replace skirting or make good on wall, whatever's more economical. - new carpet for whole room. Dimensions are 350x261cm - take away and legally dispose of old carpet Please supply all your own materials and tools. Paint to be white and carpets to be light grey. Cheapest possible. This room needs to be a usable bedroom for 6 months only. It does not have to be perfect, it just needs to be clean and tidy. Preference for early availability.

Great communication, friendly and polite. Aidan helped me redecorate my spare bedroom: he refinished and painted walls, fitted new carpet and removed all waste. He also fixed a leaking drainpipe. The finish on his work is very good and I would recommend him with pleasure.

Box off boiler unit to maximise space


Spitalfields, Greater London

7th Oct 2023

To box off boiler to maximise floor space. The laminate would need to be adjusted, and the pipes all covered up to make this look good. It is currently boxed off but takes up too much space. Would need their own tools and would like to keep cost down so existing wood could be used. Someone with their own tools. Serious people with good time keeping please. If someone is available today or tomorrow this would be ideal. I also have a few other jobs including putting up a TV wall mount and a couple shelves.

Ozan is such a great worker and went above and beyond for this task. He was friendly, great communication and did the job better to a great standard. We will definitely be using Ozan again!
