What does a carpenter typically do?
A carpenter is often the first person on a project and the last one to leave. A carpenter works with timber, meaning they play a key role in practically any home improvement project! It is a much bigger field than people give it credit for. There are many different kinds of carpentry, including framing, formwork, roofing, joisting, trim, etc. We at Bob Fougere Services can provide both structural work and more intricate tasks such as custom furniture and ornaments.
What are the most common home improvement projects in Perth?
Composite decking has become quite a popular area for home improvement in Perth. Composite decking is made from a variety of eco-friendly materials that are affordable, easy to maintain, durable, and look amazing. Bob is a DuraLife composite decking preferred installer. Other popular home improvements include timber linings, timber screens, and custom-made windows and doors. More typical home improvements could include outdoor timber structures, garden renovations, kitchen conversions of all kinds, front entries, ramps, handrails, and more.
What does ‘home improvement’ really mean?
A home improvement is any kind of improvement to your home. It has a wide scope. At Bob Fougere, we are experts at anything to do with timber. So if your home improvement involves wood, then we want to work on it! This includes decking, windows, frames, furniture, custom furniture, skirting boards, doors, gazebos, cabinets, and just about any kind of indoor or outdoor timber structure.
Can’t I make home improvements myself?
If you are skilled in a particular area, then you can complete a home renovation yourself. We don’t discourage it, provided you actually know what you’re doing. But a lot will depend on the complexity of your project. There is a lot of difference between installing a kitchen cabinet and renovating an entire bathroom. Ultimately, you want the home improvement to look good and be completed without any glitches.
Unless you are truly interested in learning and have a passion for it, then it is often a waste of time and money. Because you don’t have a network of reliable third-party contractors (electricity, plumbing, air conditioning, demolition, etc), you are unlikely to have the tools and the expertise to get the job done to a high standard. It’s better to call a professional carpenter in Perth or a home improvement specialist.
