What are carpentry and joinery?
Joinery is the use of wood to create whatever you may need for your home or office. A joiner will be the person who builds anything wooden for your home. This generally includes wardrobes, bookcases, doors, staircases and window frames, along with wooden furniture such as desks and chairs. The Southampton Carpenters handle all this!
Carpenters are then responsible for the on-site installation of the work done by a joiner. They also work on larger elements of a construction project, such as flooring, walls and roofs.
As you can see, there is generally a large amount of crossover between the work of joiners and carpenters, so it can be confusing to figure out which service you require. There is no need to worry with The Southampton Carpenters though. The whole process is completely managed by our team, from start to finish.
So why do I need a carpenter in Southampton?
Woodwork is essential for many different forms of construction. It is used as a framework in the building of most walls, windows floors and roofs as both a structure and a base. It is also used in shuttering. This is where wood is used as a temporary structure to house setting concrete. So as you can see, carpentry plays an essential role in almost all construction projects!
Carpentry work is not only vital for structural work though. It is also used to create stunning results and transform rooms. Wood fittings and furnishings are the best way to make your space look natural and beautiful. We only work with high-quality natural materials so that we can deliver perfect results every time. Give The Southampton Carpenters a call to help create the home of your dreams.

What is the difference between a carpenter and a joiner?
Both carpenters and joiners fall under the general term carpentry, but they have slightly different specialisations. Joiners make and join wood, and carpenters install and construct the timber on site.
Do I have to leave my home while you are working?
This depends on the size and type of work that we are doing. If you can cope without access to areas of your home then you may be able to stay at home. For more extensive works it is usually recommended that you vacate until work is completed.
I want to use a specific type of wood – is that ok?
Absolutely! We always take our customer’s preferences into account and strive to deliver the best possible results. We always work with high-quality, reputable vendors when sourcing your desired wood type.
There are a wide variety of woods and finishes to choose from, so we can also advise you if you are unsure which wood to go for.

- Framer – This type of carpentry revolves around the construction of frameworks for buildings
- Roofer – Focuses on the beams, rafters and trusses in roofing

- Joister – A joister carpenter specialises in laying floor joists
