Trim carpentry is a specialized service that involves adjusting molding and trim around doors and window casings, mantels, baseboards, and any other type of custom design work. Professional trim carpenters typically are responsible for the very last phase of construction, and polish the final result by installing trim, finishing walls, and building railings. Often times, trim carpentry is done off-site, meaning the finished product is transported to the construction site, only after it’s complete.
Why Trim Carpentry is Used
The purpose of trim carpentry is to provide a more attractive finish for any home. It creates the delicate details that make a custom built home so unique. For many, it is a mark of true craftsmanship and its entire purpose is to make a home or building stand out. For home owners who want a breathtaking interior and exterior, trim carpentry is the only way to go.
How it Works
Trim carpenters are often very experienced and have spent many years as apprentices. They use heavy bulk tools including chop saws, miter saws, hammers, and sanding units to create the perfect polished result. They are extremely detailed orientated and are driven by their own perfection. The process of installing and molding trim can be tedious and requires precise measurements and patience. Specialized workshops are often necessary to house the endless amount of equipment needed for proficient trim carpentry. Not only do measurements need to precise but they also must be aesthetically pleasing. Balancing the two is no easy feat.
Why Trim Carpentry Should be Done By a Professional
A trim carpenter is generally responsible for the last phases of construction that involve finishing touches such as installing trim, making furniture, finishing walls, constructing railings, and building various components that make the space more attractive, usable, or otherwise livable. They may or may not work on-site at a project; many of the items he or she will make will require large, bulky tools that cannot be transported, as a result, much of his or her time will be spent in a workshop. One of the specialties of trim carpenter is, unsurprisingly, installing trim. This includes baseboards, molding, door trim, and other finishing accents in a home. The process of installing such trim can be tedious, and the trim carpenter will need a keen eye for detail, an ability to take precise measurements, make measurements by eye, and operate various tools to create clean cuts and attractive fittings. In this case, the trim carpenter will work onsite with tools such as chop saws, miter saws, nail guns, hammers, and sanding units such as palm sanders.
