Unless you're in a town or city that have very little carpenters, an hourly rate could very well be high (£20-£25.00 per hour). However, with the current ecconomic climate the way it is, charging £25.00 per hour wouldn't bring in many enquiries in my town of Corby/Kettering. The days when a decent tradesman could claim £160 - £200 a day for a decent days work, are well gone and may not be back for the foreseeable future, if the government don't change their ways that is. Another point to remember is, just because a client chooses a tradesman, they've found cheaply, to carry out a specific task and they pay £100.00 per day or less, doesn't mean the job gets carried out professionally. This being the case, and if the contractor isn't around to rectify a 'botch-up', which I've seen so many times, it creates a false-economy: You're paying twice, even more, to get it fixed, which is a real shame. Professional advice is plentifull, quality tradesmen are few. Hope this helps, Hans Storrie - Purveyors of quality workmanship at decent prices!

6 months is quite a long project, you shouldn't struggle to find Joiners willing to work for £15-18 per hour. As with anything, you get what you pay for, I would never employ a Tradesman that wanted less than £130 a day ( they never have the tools, or the knowledge, and take twice as long as they should). ps there are some joiners that can fit kitchens and 1st fix!!

You should be looking to pay your joiner about £18 per hour but this can vary slightly on the location of the project e.g city centres or very rural areas. Your joiner should have all his own tools (hand and power), but if you require scaffold or cranes you shall have to supply. Also some joiners may charge less, but if they are supplying materials, they will charge you more for materials to increase their profit from the contract. thanks Alan

Hello Colbirch. It would be very helpful if you would be able to provide a small amount of information such as: The location of the project. The type of carpentry work i.e. is it erecting stud work, pitching a roof, hanging doors etc. The would enable me to give you a more accurate idea of the costs that may be incurred. We are able to offer a free quotation service if this would be of use to you. Kind regards, Kieron. For & on behalf of Blueleaf Construction.
