As the name implies, finish carpentry is the final step in remodeling process. It involves the installation of finish woods and trim.

A finish carpenter installs features like crown molding, baseboards, windows, stairs, and other design elements. Focus and detail are important skills a finish carpenter needs. Other tasks that you might hire a finish carpenter to do would be to build and install custom cabinets, stairs, and decking.


What Type of Carpentry Do I Need?

It depends on where you are at in your remodeling process.

If you are doing a complete remodel or you are building a house from scratch, you will need to start with a rough carpenter. They will help you to get your house up to code and get the walls built. If you're simply replacing a few cabinets, adding molding, or installing new windows, then you'll want to hire a finish carpenter.
