Joiner, carpenter, woodworker, cabinet maker; they are all “technically” different trades and indeed there are different skill sets within these trades - a form worker, a scenic carpenter, a framer and so on.
Yet in Scotland at least the word Joiner (or colloquially “a chippy”) has become ubiquitous for anyone who makes and installs wooden fixtures and fittings. Given the range of tasks someone with joinery skills can be called upon to do it’s understandable that some specialism occurs amongst wood workers.
At HomeForce we firmly believe that getting the right person for the job is the most important step to getting the best value from a joiner.
A tradesman who regularly fits kitchens will have greater knowledge of the foibles of kitchen fitting. One who is constantly cutting and shaping raw timber for floor and roof joists, door surrounds and stud walls will do this faster than one who is more accustomed to the precise measurements and fine finishing of cabinet and furniture making.
Getting the right joiner for your job means that not only will they be more practiced and so faster (time is money!) in executing work but they will also be more knowledgeable so as to avoid costly pit falls that may trap those less experienced. This all adds up to a better finish in a shorter time (and so less money) and therefore greater value.
