Does Your Reno Project Need a Finish Carpenter?


Whether you’re building or renovating a home, your project is going to require skilled labor — and it should include more than one type of carpenter. Finish carpenters are the craftsmen who turn a functional home into a beautiful place to live, and here at Golden Eagle Builders, we have the expertise and experience for any job. Here’s how to know if your Reno project needs a finish carpenter.

What Does a Finish Carpenter Bring to a Project?

Finish carpentry differentiates from rough carpentry in a few ways. It’s a specialized type of woodworking that begins when rough carpentry ends. Think of the “finishing touches” in a home, like the moldings, door and window trim, baseboards, mantels, and other ornamental features and details — that’s all been done by a finish carpenter. Built-in cabinetry, shelving, and other wood fixtures that are customized to your home also fall into the realm of the finish carpenter. Truly, they’re artistic in their skill set!

Finish carpenters work with specific tools made for precision, and there is little room for error. Much of their meticulous work is completed by hand.

Consider the Scope of Your Project

If your vision includes elevated details that add elegance and luxury to your home, don’t trust the process to a rough carpenter. While they’re qualified for their type of work, framing is an entirely different skill set than finish work. You’ll know you need a finish carpenter if you have existing woodwork that needs updating, or you’re interested in new woodwork and design both inside and outdoors. If that’s the case, Golden Eagle Builders here in Reno is happy to answer your questions and discuss the benefit of professional finish carpentry.
