Wood is considered one of the oldest and most reliable building materials. The ability to shape wood into beautiful and functional creations has improved with advances in technology and craftsmanship. Some of the oldest evidence of carpentry can be found in the Czech Republic where water well casings have been dated back to 5256 BC.

What is carpentry?
Carpentry is the trade of a carpenter. It’s is one of the most utilised and necessary skills of the building trade because of the specialised techniques and knowledge that are required when working with different kinds of wood. In the building trade, there are a number of different types of carpentry.
Rough carpentry is carpentry work that does not always need a neat finish, as it is covered up by walls or other work. The most common example of rough carpentry is structural carpentry such as the speedy erection of the structural components of a building, including beams, posts and rafters. Rough carpentry also includes roofing and framing of buildings.
Finish carpentry is the other main type of carpentry work and refers to any work that will be visible once a project is completed. Finish carpentry requires a high level of detail and includes flooring, staircases, decking, window and door installation as well as trim and moulding.
Other types of carpentry include formwork carpentry and cabinetmaking. Formwork carpentry focusses on the carpentry frame needed for the pouring of concrete, while cabinetmaking focuses on building cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, offices and such.

What is the difference between a carpenter and a builder?
Any good building company utilises the skills of both builders and carpenters as they have different skills and assess a project from different viewpoints. At Patterson Built, our carpentry team works professionally with our in-house builders to ensure the completion of your build is of the highest quality standard, no matter which way you look at it. This teamwork and communication form part of our reputation and sets us apart from the competition.
Even though they work together symbiotically, there are a number of key differences between the work of a builder and the work of a carpenter. A builder’s job is to manage the building project from start to finish as well as the responsibilities of submitting plans to council (and following through to obtain relevant building permits), scheduling the building process and working with building inspectors. A builder will schedule and coordinate the needed trades including the required carpentry work. Carpenters, on the other hand, are directed by the builders to different projects on the build. It’s the carpenter’s job to ensure that their work complies with the plans and locality building code and is completed to the highest possible standard.
Our specialised team of established and experienced carpenters bring highly developed and refined skills to your particular project, always working diligently and according to our precision standards, to produce carpentry work of the highest quality.
