What is carpentry and why would you need a carpenter?
Carpentry is a specialist skill and if you ever have the need for maintenance and repair work involving all kinds of wood, then you’ll need the skills of a professional carpenter or joiner. Carpenters don’t only work in private homes but are often employed to work on shopfitting or in restaurants and bars. A more glamourous side of the job involves constructing sets for use in films and on TV shows.
Carpenters are also employed on construction sites, heavily involved in the construction of new homes and buildings. The job requires a keen eye for detail, carefully measuring and cutting wood to the required size and shape for any number of design projects. They make doors, furniture and lay wooden flooring. Carpenters must have good maths skills and the ability to work from blueprints and technical drawings.
If you require timber for the fitting of floorboards or flooring, skirting boards or window frames then you’ll need the services of a Gloucester carpenter. You might also need carpentry services in Gloucestershire if you require structures like roof joists fitted, partition walls added or staircases installing.
Have a kitchen remodelled is an exciting time and you’ll need specialist help with the fitting of door frames, cupboards, cabinets, door handles, shelving and locks. By using the Gloucestershire carpentry services, you can guarantee a first-class job, first time around. Trying to install such fittings yourself could result in errors that require costly adjustments.
Here are some of the different types of carpentry jobs so you can decide which service you require:
Residential carpenter — This type of carpentry is involved in building homes, framing exterior walls, constructing stairs and helping with the building of roofing and decking. Carpenters working in this field might also install floors, cabinets and crown moulding.
Bench carpenter or cabinetmaker — This area involves the cutting, shaping and construction of wood products. Many cabinetmakers also design their own creations and install these custom-made designs in homes, public buildings and offices.
Furniture finisher — Working on antique, vintage and modern pieces of furniture, repairing and restoring. Much of this work involves preservation with the use of staining, sealing agents and topcoats to protect wooden items.
Depending on the kind of work you need a carpenter for, there are broadly two sections – rough and finish. Rough carpentry specialises in the construction of support forms such as frameworks and scaffolds for large building projects. Finish carpentry is concerned with the final touches of a property, such as stair building, floor laying, banister installation and panelling.
