How much carpentry services cost in India?

Published: July 20, 2022


Your home decor may be classic, modern, artistic, traditional or it's just another house in any neighborhood, one thing is certain that it has a lot of wooden furniture that needs constant repair and upgrading. And for that we need a carpenter. Even if you are looking to renovate your old house or decorate a new one, we cannot do without a carpenter. 

 

 

One of the main difficulties we face here is to find the right carpenter, with the right skill set and pricing to do the job. Since there are a multitude of  specialties within carpentry itself, it becomes an overwhelming task to search and contract work to one of them. 

 

Let’s try to solve this puzzle! Broadly speaking there are two major categories of carpentry services provider:
 

  • Woodworker: These specialize in mostly small and movable things like table, chairs, wooden lamps, jewelry boxes, bird houses/feeders etc.
     

  • Carpenter: Primary specializes on large and unmovable items like windows, doors, solid surface, roofing, framing, siding, flooring, metal framing, wall partitions, office furniture systems, and both custom or factory-produced materials etc.


Now the question arises on how to estimate their charges. The charges will depend on many aspects of the workmanship. For example:

 

  • Complexity of the Design: as it takes more time to construct drawers than regular boxes. So, the more complex the design, the higher the fee will be.
     

  • Quality of Workmanship: a carpenter with more experience and efficiency will charge more.
     

  • Construction method: the durability and finishing of a product highly depends on the method of construction. And again, a more experienced carpenter with a good reputation will have higher fees.
     

  • Location: the charges also depend on the location of the carpenter. A workman from a proper shop in a market will cost much more than one you procure from his home and who has no work site. Many times the carpenter may add the conveyance charges from their site to your home as well.
     

  • Material used: Better the raw material used in making the furniture, costlier is the work. Sometimes it's better to purchase these materials yourself, rather than let the carpenter add those to his billing.
     

 

 

Apart from these aspects, we can gauge the cost for a carpenter's work based on the city’s development as well.

Here a big city refers to a range of cities from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, to Indore, Visakhapatnam, whereas small city refers to towns like Ajmer, Amravati, Aara, Ujjain, Gaya
