People sometimes ask me about the difference between a carpenter and a joiner.
In general, a carpenter's job is more site based. Indeed, within the capentry trade there are two subdivisions. First fix carpentry involves roofing, timber joists, door frames, timber studwork and stairs. Second fix carpentry entails the fitting of doors, frames, architraves, skirtings etc.
In contrast, a joiner's job is more workshop based - making stairs, doors, mouldings, wardrobes, kitchens etc.
The services provided by Charles Crawford Carpentry comprises most of the above, with a particular emphasis on second fix carpentry.
