Recent Carpentry reviews in London Shoreditch

Wow! 100% confidence in Jeff, he was professional, clean, and exceeded my expectations. He sent me pictures his work on the shelf in the days before install, exactly when he said he would. He is clearly very skilled at building furniture from scratch. His work was perfect. You pay for what you get, his work is worth the money and ir shows in the quality and detail. Thank you!

Build small desk around walls

£100

Absolutely amazing! I’d recommend every time for any plumbing to carpentry job. Really lovely personality and a hard working professional.

Installing doors and handles

£200

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).

Keeron was very helpful, completed the task quickly and I can definitely recommend 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. 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.
