Carpenter » Overview


Carpenters build, repair and install structures such as foundations, walls, roofs, windows and doors in large and small buildings. Sometimes they build or repair small items such as custom furniture or carvings. A carpenter usually works as a contractor, and may own his or her own business. Carpenters often work alongside building teams, including builders, joiners, plumbers and electricians.

The role of carpenter is essential to the building industry and people who work as carpenters sometimes move into other fields within the industry, or start their own business
