Carpenter Newcastle

Newcastle Carpenters (NE1) Tyne and Wear UK: Unless you have a degree of self-belief and you're fairly good at DIY, wood related jobs around the house will require the skills of a qualified carpenter and joiner. Even for those with the self-confidence and ability to take on this kind of project, the possible lack of the correct tools and equipment will be a considerable drawback. It could very well be cheaper to employ somebody to get the job done than to purchase a whole load of extra equipment. There could also be old timber and materials that need to be disposed of, particularly if it is a remodelling type of job. Will you be able to undertake with your own car (if you have one!)? Often Newcastle carpenters will include this specific service in their estimate, and they will have a van or a trailer that's perfect for this purpose.

There's more or less no limit to the amount of wood related projects that a qualified carpenter can undertake around the home.

Picking up a few fundamental woodworking knowledge as pre-apprentices in either cabinet-making or construction carpentry, is the way that most Newcastle carpenters (or joiners) kick off their career journey. They'll only become fully accredited journeymen, competent enough to work on pretty much any wood related task, after serving a full five year apprenticeship in their chosen area of the profession (construction or cabinetmaking). From this point they are able to acquire the required skills to become a master-carpenter which may take many years. A person at the top of his field, a "Master Carpenter" has a wide knowledge of every facet of carpentry, and can take on any woodworking related project without supervision or help.

Carpentry and Joinery Newcastle

Joiner Newcastle

Now, some people in Newcastle may well be confused about the precise meaning of the phrase "carpentry and joinery" or "carpenter and joiner", and quite frankly these terms tend to be a little misleading. Actually there've been quite a few occasions over the years when I have heard a householder ask "exactly what are the differences between a joiner and a carpenter?" and naturally there can be substantial differences. Whilst at times you may run into a tradesman in Newcastle who is truly a "carpenter and joiner", more often than not he'll be one or the other. So exactly what is the difference? Well a quick reply may be that a carpenter does his work on site, while a joiner plies his trade in a workshop environment, as an example, a joiner will put together a window frame in his joinery workshop utilizing jigs, hand tools and machinery, whilst a carpenter will install the window frame in the window opening on site. Each type of tradesman knows something about the others skills yet would likely be unable to trade places without getting extra training. To add even more confusion, those trying to find carpentry apprenticeships in Newcastle, will need to pass a City and Guilds exam in "Carpentry and Joinery" but will be employed as either a joiner or carpenter ie learning their trade on site or in a joinery workshop.

Coving Installation Newcastle

Coving Newcastle

There might also be some other jobs around the home that your chosen Newcastle carpenter can help you with, even stuff which you may think would require the skills of another tradesman or craftsman. An example might be to fit coving around your ceilings to give them that professional finish. You would think that a plasterer or specialist coving fitter would be the right person for this task, but if you have a decent carpenter at hand, he will be just as effective at tackling this. When preparing coving, the requirement is to understand all the angles, and by default a carpenter is the ideal person for this sort of work, usually possessing a comprehension of angles as with roof construction and similar tasks. In reality you'll have to retain the services of a carpenter and joiner when the coving involved is made from real wood, which is often the case with some older houses.
