Why is it important to get more than one carpenter quote?

These days we have so many options to buy stock standard flatpack cabinets and cupboards etc to bring home for a DIY job but they do not compare to having a bespoke unit built to perfectly fit into a recess or space in your home and constructed to meet your storage needs. Carpenter and joiner jobs can range from a small quick job of restoring a family heirloom chair to a bigger job of bespoke building bedroom furniture to suit the room space. Before you choose a carpenter to go with, it is smart practice to have at least shopped around for three quotes to compare skills, experience and service offered.

The various estimates from different carpenters allow you the opportunity to compare the wood and materials they will be using whether it is building a cabinet using plywood or red oak and quoting the same for a much better wood. Getting more than one quote also is the perfect way to see on the quotes which associations the various carpenters belong to, e.g. being able to choose a carpenter who is part of the British Woodworking Federation or a joiner allied with The Association of Master Tradesmen Joiners.

Discussing your project with the carpenters and joiners while shopping around for quotes, gives you a glimpse into which tradespeople have actually successfully completed a project like yours before, giving you the confidence on choosing the right carpenter for you as well as being able to see who you feel understands your project the most.

What should I make sure my quote from a carpenter includes?

If you are having a carpenter arrive to your home to do a lot of small jobs in one day, e.g. construct one bespoke shelf, fix a table leg and revarnish the table top, there might not be a lot of materials to quote for so the carpenter might just bundle up one price that covers materials such as screws, glue and varnish as well as give you their labour price as one listed price covering the small jobs. If you are having a more involved work project e.g. build and fit radiator box covers for a two-storey house your quote should detail the materials showing the cost of the wood being used as well as detail the hours / days that they feel the job might require.

As some carpenters and joiners are just small man in van operations, ask if they are vat registered if it is not obvious on the quote so that you know whether to include this on top of the final figure or not. If you are having a big project undertaken, e.g. the removal of an old staircase and banister with a new wooden staircase put it, check to see if there is any mention of the removal of the building rubble or if you still need to allocate funds for the removing of replaced parts.

Scan through the quote from the carpenter to confirm all that you have asked to be done is listed on the job specification. Check to see if the contact details given or the same contact details you have been using during your communication to safeguard you for after sales service and queries you might have after the work is complete. Notice on the quote if it shows affiliations or associations that the carpenter and joiner have said that they belong to. It will be useful if the quote also gives mention to their availability time frames so that when deciding, you do not choose the person you have to wait 12 weeks for.

Is a verbal quote enough or should I request having my quote emailed?

Never accept only a verbal quote. During the course of the discussions regarding your carpentry work, there will be the verbal mentioning of the estimates but if the carpenters do not offer to put their tenders in writing to email or post onto you, be sure to ask. Do not be put off about requesting to have their quote in writing before agreeing and giving them the go ahead as this will safeguard you during the project and ensure that the work you are paying for is what you are getting. If you have been asked to pre-pay any deposit towards materials, this must be mentioned in the quote so that when it comes to paying in the balance there is a clear paper trial of end figures owing.
