Featured Reviews for Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
Custom Fronts
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"Ian built a study and utility space for me, transforming a junk room. Actually, saying he built it doesn't do his work justice. He helped design it, taking my ideas and sketching them out, refining them with me and making excellent suggestions about materials and finishes. He then worked incredibly hard to make and fit it, too, and the result is absolutely beautiful: built in cupboards, a gorgeous desk and shelves made from reclaimed timber, and everything finished with great attention to detail. He's a pleasure to work with, too - just a lovely guy who is really committed to his craft and to creating something beautiful for you. If he'd launched Custom Fronts when I was doing my kitchen a few years ago I would absolutely, definitely have used this option - what a genius idea!"
- Jo Simmons
Joseph John Ltd
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"Great work on a number of projects including decking, bespoke gates and fencing and a number of internal projects (windows, doors and more). Very reliable, does what he says to a high standard at a good price. Comes up with some good ideas too."
- Nik Webb
Alec Woodland Joinery
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"Restored my staircase to the highest standard. Friendly, skilled, professional, on time as per quote and an utterly decent bloke will definitely use again for our on going project"
- Matt Hutchinson
Westgate Joinery
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"Excellent planning, preparation and execution of 3 separate jobs. They use top quality materials, such as Accoya, and produce top quality windows and doors. After-sales service was first class. Cost was competitive but not the lowest. Chosen for the largest job (17 windows & new front door) due to excellence of the first work done (3 large windows, roof light and bi-fold doors)."

Parsons Joinery Ltd
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"I was looking for a local joinery company to help me with the renovation of my home. I received a number of quotes but I was impressed by the honesty and technical knowledge of the workshop manager Trev. I decided to proceed with an extra large set of bi-folding doors and kitchen units. The whole experience included the minimum of fuss and everything was extremely professional. I will hopefully be proceeding later on in the year with more work."
- David Beecham

Focal Designs
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"Shaun is a consummate professional & provided a reassuring quality of workmanship & insightful advice during each step of an apartment full renovation. All key areas were worked on with the same degree of professionalism & innovation; flooring, doors, kitchen & bathroom cabinets, integrated wardrobe, skirting & door trims, breakfast bar & bathroom vanity unit. His breadth of knowledge, skill & attention to detail is commendable. Highly recommended."
- Justin
Vertex Bespoke Joinery & Cabinetry
Carpenters and Joiners in Brighton, East Sussex
"Louis and Sam built us a large double-glazed window in high-spec wood (no shrinking, very robust etc). Excellent quality and design, lets in more light, much admired. They stand out as they put such thought and detail into the piece of work so we knew we were in safe hands. Will use them again without any hesitation, next for bi-fold doors. They are very knowledgeable and really care about the result they produce. Craftsmen like this are not easy to find. Produced our window at short notice, arrived on time, worked late until it was finished."

What is the difference between carpenters and joiners?


Carpentry and joinery are two specialisms within the overall trade of woodworking. There is certainly much overlap between the two trades – both primarily work with wood, of course – but one does not perfectly equal the other. At its simplest level, a carpenter will create, install or repair on site what a joiner makes in a workshop – the latter focusing on cutting and fitting joints. But there are also exceptions to this broad distinction. Some joiners will be involved in finishing and fitting certain pieces of bespoke joinery such as skirting boards and architraves, and many professionals work as both joiners and carpenters.

When deciding whether to employ a joiner or carpenter in Brighton, East Sussex, it is best to pick your professional according to their experience on projects similar to your own. For example, installing bespoke joinery such as a staircase involves significant structural work and you might want to work with a carpenter in Brighton, East Sussex with considerable experience in bespoke staircase joinery. You will often find you need to employ both a carpenter and joiner on a single project, and some firms will offer both skillsets which can simplify your overall hiring process.
