Home Carpentry


Carpenters are vital to almost every facet of the construction industry. They must have expertise in a wide variety of skills that are needed in commercial construction as well as in residential building and structural maintenance. On residential sites, they build house frameworks, walls, roofs and exterior finishes, and install doors, windows, flooring, cabinets, stairs, handrails, paneling, moulding and ceiling tiles. At construction locations they are responsible for building concrete forms, scaffolding, bridges, trestles, tunnels, shelters, towers and other structures. Those who work in maintenance may repair and remodel existing structures of all kinds.

A carpenter can:
  • prepare the foundations of buildings
  • install beams, girders and footing forms
  • build stairs and stair forms
  • construct sloped and unequal pitch roofs
  • apply wall and ceiling coverings, inside and outside
  • install trim, doors, baseboards, mouldings, cabinets and other finish carpentry
  • lay floors of resilient tile or hardwood strips
  • erect and insulate walls, ceilings and floors
  • fireproof beams and columns
