Carpenters and joiners are Pros who specialise in making and installing wooden furniture, fittings and structures. They will usually have become qualified through on the job training, an apprenticeship, college course or equivalent industry-recognised scheme. Remember, your ideal candidate will have several years of experience under their belt.
A local carpenter/ joiner in London can follow leads in and around Barking and Dagenham, Barnet, Bexley, Bromley, Camden, Croydon, Ealing, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Southwark, Sutton, Wandsworth and Westminster.
There are two rules that will make your search easier. Firstly, remember to check your Pro’s coverage. London is a big place, and if your Pro does not service your local area then they may charge you extra for travel expenses. Look for a local Pro, and do not be afraid to ask neighbours for a recommendation. The second rule is that tradesmen charge local rates, so national averages will not be much help for predicting the costs for your project. For a good idea of the average cost to hire a carpenter or joiner in London, collect quotes from at least three different possible candidates.
It will be important to look over the reviews of your candidates. What have their customers said about their work quality? Reviews can also let you know about on site behaviour: does this candidate turn up and complete their work on time? Are they polite? Are they happy to answer questions? It is also worth checking if they have worked on jobs which are similar to yours in the past.
One final thing to be sure of is that your Pros are properly covered. A carpenter or joiner should be able to provide a warranty for their work, and they should also have an active public liability insurance policy in case of any accidents.
