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.

Mount shelves on plaster & lath walls

£40

Elephant And Castle, Greater London

12th Nov 2020

The property is a first floor flat in a Victorian building with plaster and lath walls so correct tools are required for drilling, identifying studs/pipes etc. Postcode is SE1 0AH. The following need putting up: 1 x cheap lightweight 2 tier shelving unit to be installed in bedroom alcove. The unit came with fixings but I'm not 100% sure they are suitable for the walls in the property. 2 x twin slot uprights (https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-Twin-Slot-Upright-White-997mm/p/210181) to be installed above sink in kitchen. I don't need the actual shelves put up as long as the slots are level. I haven't purchased any fixings due to not knowing what I need but happy to communicate with you before installation to ensure I have everything. Please add info in your quote on whether you have various fixings available already, whether you want to purchase them or want me to order them. Pictures are of the cheap shelves and fixings, the dark painted wall they are to be hung on and the space above the kitchen sink. Twin slots are due next week so happy for the work to be done from then and is not urgent. Date added to job is just there because I had to add one. I have a stepladder and shop vac in the property. A digital parking permit is available for the shared estate bays behind the building. Details can be sorted out on the day.
