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:
