Hire the right carpenter
A carpenter can do a variety of jobs around a property. As well as maintenance work such as architrave and door planing, they can also create fully-bespoke wooden furniture, such as cupboards, wardrobes or fitted shelving. Less complicated work such as flat-pack furniture assembly will usually be best left to a handyman. Individual carpenters also do not tend to be the best professionals for full-scale conversion jobs, though they can usually take on several of the associated tasks.
In order to become qualified, most carpenters will complete intermediate or advanced apprenticeships in carpentry or joinery (though joiners are distinct from carpenters, so try not to confuse the two). Another option is to complete a Level 2 or 3 Diploma at collegiate level. Remember, each and every carpenter available with Home Solutions has been vetted to make sure that they are fully qualified and highly experienced.
Before you start looking for the average costs of hiring a carpenter in London, there are a few things you’ll need to keep in mind. First of all, carpenters in London tend to charge different prices from those elsewhere in the UK. Next, there are a number of extra charges that can apply in London, such as temporary parking.
For certain jobs, carpenters will usually offer standardised pricing. Other jobs can require callouts, where a carpenter will come to a property in order to assess what kind of work needs to be done. Once they have the information they need, the carpenter will be able to offer a bespoke quote. Costs like additional labour or materials may still apply, but with John Lewis, your carpenter will always make these charges clear in advance.
With Home Solutions from John Lewis, you will have two options for finding quotes. The first is to choose a service with a set price. You can also choose to arrange a visit to quote for your work, where you can discuss the details of your job with your carpenter.
