What should I look for in a carpenter in Watford?

If you’ve never used a carpenter before, it can be tricky to know who to trust. At MyBuilder, we carefully check all applicants to our network to ensure they comply with our hiring guidelines, and over a third get turned down. You can be confident that any carpenters who respond to your job post have a high level of skill and experience, and can be trusted to do a great job.

Here are a few questions you might want to ask a carpenter before confirming a job:

  • What materials do they plan to work with?
  • Can they show you examples of similar work?
  • Can they provide references?
  • Do they have any qualifications such as NVQs or a City & Guilds diploma?
  • Do they hold any memberships with bodies like the Institute of Carpenters or British Woodworking Federation? While not essential, this can provide reassurance that a carpenter is insured and compliant with certain standards
  • Do they offer any aftercare?
