Hire the right carpenter
Our carpenters are skilled in a wide variety of tasks, from the fitting of custom units and furniture to framework damage repair. In most conversion and large-scale home improvements, carpenters and joiners are required, so it pays to bring in an expert whom you know will get things right. When it comes to simple tasks, such as building flat-pack furniture, it may be better to hire a handyman.
Carpentry is a trade requiring several skills as well as experience and practice. Most carpenters affiliated learn the trade through intermediate to higher-level apprenticeships. Alternatively, they may have achieved a level 2 or 3 college diploma. Every Home Solutions carpenter is appropriately qualified for whatever jobs they are sent out to do, with experience using a wide range of tools and techniques to ensure the highest standards of work are maintained.
Whilst average, nation-wide prices can help you get a good idea of how much you should be expecting to pay, they are not always accurate, and there are a few important hangups worth remembering. Rates can vary in Southampton and also differ from national averages. In addition, pricing can vary depending on the specifics of a job and little things can incur extra charges. Extra materials, additional labour and hiring of specialised equipment as needed can add to the total cost of a job, as well as temporary parking fares and the like. Also, hiring a carpenter to work during the evenings, or over weekends or national holidays can mean you are charged at a higher rate.
Home Solutions provides two different options for calculating payment. Firstly, simple services and common small-scale tasks are likely to come with pre-set, standardised pricing, which can be viewed through the John Lewis website for convenience. Secondly, you have the option to contact a carpenter through Home Solutions to discuss the details of a job and come to an accurate, bespoke quote for the services you would require. This may also entail a carpenter visiting your property before work is undertaken to carry out an assessment of the job and the area.
When working with Home Solutions from John Lewis, we make sure all costs are laid out and explained clearly beforehand. This ensures you know exactly what you are paying for, with no surprises when you receive the bill.
