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.

Get in touch with carpenters such as Aktar H, David T, and Liam J today to get a wide variety of Carpentry jobs done.

When i moved my cabinet from north london, the back panel started breaking away. Now the back panel has come off completely and the whole thing sways. I need someone to nail the back on and glue/refasten the pieces of board. Or whatever can be done to restabilise it. I took a pic of the cabinet and backboard.

Change 2 Door Threshold Bars

£60

Ratcliff, Greater London

24th Apr 2022

I bought 2 new wooden Door Threshold Bars that I would like to install in 2 bedroom doors inside my flat. The floor both inside and outside the rooms are wooden. These dividers have a T shape, so it would be needed to remove the T and keep just the flat bar, because there is no space to fit the T between the 2 floors. Also, if the door dividers purchased are too long, they would need to be cut. Then scope of the job will be to remove the current room dividers and install the new ones. I cannot provide the glue to fit the room dividers, but I can provide silicon to isolate both sides of the room dividers. - Due date: Flexible
