Trim Carpentry Secret
Saturday, 13 February 2010 01:01

Trim carpentry is essential to turn your house from a place of shelter and rest, to a loving and beautiful home. Trim carpentry is everywhere! From the closets, to door frames, to window frames and ledges, from the tables to even roofing, trim carpentry is what separates your home from the rest of the pack. Trim carpentry is less of a job, and more of an art form. It’s the combination of all the carefully sculpted little details that create the grand picture and beautify your home. Trim carpentry is, in a way, an art form, and as everyone knows, the best artists get paid the most.


First, one must determine to what extent and what budget you have to use for a trim carpenter. If you are building a villa of sorts, prepare to hand out the big bucks for an expert job to make your house beautiful. If you are doing a full house renovation, but instead of a villa, it’s a townhouse, it is suggested to get a medium-priced trim-carpenter who can do the job right and leave you satisfied with your project. The pricing of the carpenter will depend on his skill and expertise, (usually determined by word of mouth and reviews), and by the extent of your project. Adding the finishing touch to a door frame is far different from that villa.


Once you have determined the size of your project, and the level of expertise you desire, you must then decide what materials to use. Paint, types of wood, and even the brand of adhesive are all important. Don’t expect to find a happy trim-carpenter faced with the dilemma of beatifying a house with low quality material. It is suggested you never go cheap on remodeling or fixing up your home, but if you plan to, then you should probably plan to go cheap on the carpenter himself. Saying you provide quality materials for a quality project, you must go through a thorough search for the right carpenter for you.




Make sure to ask around and get several quotes from different carpenters. Ask for past clients and carefully decide on your carpenter. A hasty decision is definitely not suggested in this case. For after all, he will be setting the tone and mood of your house for years to come. Once you finally found the carpenter that suits you, make sure to create a detailed contract specifying the job, payment, and guidelines. If everything is done correctly, you should be gladly satisfied with the last part of either fixing up or remodeling your home.

Happy hunting!
