How much do carpenters charge near me?

Carpenters cost $30 to $100 per hour on average to hire, depending on the project's size and type, materials, and local labor rates. Carpenters charge $5 to $20 per square foot to frame houses, walls, and ceilings from top to bottom with plates and studs.

What are the different types of carpenters?

The main types of carpentry services are:

  • Rough and framing carpenters – Includes the rough framing of walls, ceilings, rafters, floors, beams, and roofing for new structures and remodeling.
  • Finish carpenters – Includes general carpentry such as cabinetry, furniture making, fine woodworking, parquetry, joinery, or other carpentry where precise joints are important.

Where can I find a good local carpenter?

To find the local carpenter services, do the following:

Borja’s Flooring is exceptional! Without a doubt, Paul and his Borja Flooring team is top class: speed of service, personal customer service, affordable pricing, and quality flooring! Not only is their service prompt, work high-quality, and craftsmanship second to none, Paul’s personal customer service skills makes him the greatest choice for your flooring needs. Paul was able to walk me through the process of choosing what type of floor would serve me best, how long the process would take, and how best to choose the correct colors based on grain direction, floor size, etc based on my specific interior. He also was able to quickly get a quote to me and work with me for what scope of work would be best for me and my budget. Paul stops at nothing to ensure that you’re satisfied with your installation. He sends picture updates of the work, does status checks to ensure it’s looking good so far for you, and responds quickly to any of your questions. He is also connected to other quality service professionals and was able to refer me to other work I needed around my home like painting. The results speak floor themselves! I love my new carpet free transformed home with squeak free stairs and beautiful 2nd floor! Overall, I couldn’t be happier. The flooring is beautiful, solid and squeak free. The service was fantastic, the price was affordable, and Paul is excellent to work with. A+ across the board.

I cannot say enough good things about this company - they exceeded my expectations in every way possible! Firstly, the price was incredibly reasonable, especially considering the high quality of work that was done. Communication was also top-notch. But perhaps what impressed me the most was their work ethic. The crew arrived early and worked tirelessly throughout the day to get the job done. They were respectful of my property, leaving everything clean and tidy at the end of each day. And the end result? My roof looks absolutely fantastic! The repairs are solid, and I feel confident that my home is now better protected from future storms. Five stars all around!
