Important Things to Know About Hiring a Carpenter

A carpenter is a craftsman who constructs and repairs building frameworks and structures made mainly of wood. The work of a carpenter may include joinery, cladding, roofing, building door frames, and installing cabinetry, drywall, and flooring.  

What makes a good carpenter

It takes more than a set of tools and a few handyman skills to make a good carpenter. a carpenter must complete an apprenticeship and a certificate III in Carpentry in order to be qualified to Australian standards.

What to look for in a carpenter

When hiring a carpenter, it is advised to look for the following:

  • A registration with the Building Practitioner's Board. This ensures that the carpenter adheres to best practice standards.
  • A red or white construction safety card that proves the carpenter has completed an  apprenticeship and  construction safety training.
  • Any additional relevant credentials recognised by Australia.

Aside from the legal trade requirements, it is important to look for a proven track record of completed quality projects. Through our site, it is easy to find carpenters who have been verified to have the necessary certifications, licenses, and insurance.

The cost of hiring a carpenter

Once you have selected several potential carpenters, ask for a free quote to compare your options. In most cases, the carpenter will need to visit your property to take measurements or discuss the types of materials to be used before giving a final quote.

Make sure to ask for a detailed list of what is included in the to avoid hidden costs, such as waste disposal or travel charges. If you are working on a fixed budget, discuss with the carpenter if there are any other options available, so you can get the best price without compromising on quality.
