Finding a carpenter/ joiner

Carpentry is specialised work, so when you need some done you want to be sure that you are in good hands. The Plentific website can instantly generate a contact list of the best carpenters and joiners in your local area, each of which will have a Plentific profile displaying their qualifications, reviews and past projects. You can also hire a 'verified' Pro, which will gain you coverage for your entire project with the Plentific Guarantee. With registered carpenters and joiners from all over the UK, Plentific is ready to help you find your ideal Pro whatever the job might be.

When hiring a carpenter or joiner you want to be sure you have confidence in your decision. Take measurements beforehand and have a clear idea of what you want before talking to a tradesperson. Before hiring anyone, be sure that they are someone you will be comfortable working with.

What do you need to know about finding a carpenter/ joiner?

First be aware of exactly what you need done. A carpenter will have experience in building and maintaining wooden structures, while for specialist jobs such as building and repairing stairs and door frames you will need a joiner. Know about the job at hand and discuss it with your potential choices to make sure they are right for the job. Being able to talk about the job should help your choice give you a quote, and they may even be able to suggest ways for you to save money.

When comparing your choices, look out for their qualifications. There are a number of organisations that a carpenter or joiner might be a member of, such as the Institute of Carpenters (IOC), the British Woodworking Federation (BWF), the Guild of Master Craftsmen, and the Federation of Master Builders (FMB). All have strict entry requirements and standards that can help prove the level of professionalism and experience a choice can offer you. Many will have done apprenticeships or vocational courses in carpentry, but make sure they also have a decent amount of experience. It would also be wise to check customer reviews to confirm this.

After assessing the job your choice will usually offer either a fixed quote or an hourly rate for their work. If they need to bring in other labourers, check their qualifications too and whether this will incur extra costs. The same goes for if they need to bring in additional parts or equipment.

Before making your final selection, ask your choices about their insurance and guarantees relating to accidental damage, as well as your options in the event that you are unhappy with the finished project. Established and experienced tradespeople will have policies in place for resolving such disputes that they will be able to lay out for you.

A good joiner or carpenter will be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot or are reluctant to do so, it would be wise to look elsewhere.

What does a carpenter/ joiner do?

Make sure you are aware of the distinction between carpenters and joiners: carpenters are responsible for building and maintaining wooden structures, while a joiner’s role is more specific to certain building elements such as stairs, door frames and window frames. The roles can often overlap, so be certain you know exactly what you are looking for.

How much does it cost to hire a carpenter/ joiner?

The cost of hiring a carpenter or joiner depends heavily on the job at hand. Factors such as the materials required, the time needed for completion, accessibility, the complexity of your project and potential complications will all influence the price. You may also have to pay extra for rush jobs. Should your choice need to bring in expensive materials, or if it is a long term job, they may ask for some sort of deposit up front. This is not unreasonable, but remember to ask about their policies for if you are unsatisfied with their work after payment. Otherwise, payment will usually be expected once the job has been completed. It is important to discuss your project with your choice before starting, as they may be able to point out cheaper alternatives for you.
