Hire the right carpenter
Carpenters are highly skilled tradesmen who can tackle a variety of jobs around the average property. You may decide that you want some custom-built furniture that perfectly matches your decor (or you may even have an empty spot that would be perfect for some fitted storage). They can also handle maintenance and repair work, such as architrave and door planing. Larger projects such as full-scale conversion jobs can also require a carpenter’s expertise, though they will not usually manage such projects themselves.
As with hiring any other tradesmen, it will be important to make sure that your chosen carpenter is fully-qualified. To learn their trade, most will take intermediate or advanced apprenticeships in carpentry or joinery, while others will complete Level 2 or 3 diplomas at collegiate level. Of course, with Home Solutions you can rest assured that your carpenter has already been fully-vetted to make sure they are both qualified and highly-experienced.
While it can be helpful to look for the average costs of hiring a carpenter, there are a few things that you should keep in mind before you get started. First of all, while carpenters usually offer standardised prices for smaller services, larger ones often require bespoke quotes. For this, a carpenter will need to discuss the details of the job with you, such as what materials will be required and so on. It can be difficult to get an ‘average’ for this kind of job, so try not to rely too much on figures you find online.
Secondly, there can sometimes be hidden costs to carpentry jobs. For example, you may need to pay for parking, additional materials or extra labour. Your carpenter may also charge more for jobs that take place on weekends, in the evening or during public holidays. However, your carpenter should make any such charges clear well in advance.
With Home Solutions from John Lewis, you will have two options for payment. The first will be to choose a service with a set cost, while the second will be to get a bespoke quote. Don’t worry - all of our carpenters are fully-vetted and come highly recommended. With us, you can be sure of getting an excellent rate for the best of the best.
