We specialize in a wide range of interior and exterior home services, but one of the areas we really shine in is carpentry. All of our Dallas service professionals have multiple years of experience in the handyman and carpentry industry, in residential and commercial settings alike.
What many homeowners don’t realize is that there are two main types of carpenters—rough carpenters and finish carpenters. Rough carpenters are responsible for doing larger-scale carpentry projects that are less detail-oriented, such as building the frame of a house. They are sometimes described as the carpenters that build the ‘bones’ of a structure. Rough carpenters constantly keep themselves up to speed with building codes to ensure their work complies with local and state regulations.
In contrast, finish carpenters in Dallas are responsible for all the visible woodworking projects. Because this work can be seen, it must be done with great care and precision. Some of the main areas that finish carpenters work in are cabinet making, trim work, and flooring. At Mr. Handyman of Dallas, our carpenters are highly skilled and trained in all types of finish carpentry, as well as in principles of rough carpentry for projects such as porch and deck building.
Expert carpentry requires knowing how and when to use many different types of tools. Our Dallas service professionals have their own inventory of both complex and basic hand tools to ensure that they can make the right tool selection for every job. Common tools used by carpenters in Dallas include:
- Power drills
- Combination squares
- Tape measures
- Hand planes
- Miter saws
- Orbital sanders
- Palm sanders
- Sandpaper and sanding blocks
- Feather boards
- Utility knives
- And many more!
You can rest assured that our uniformed service professionals will show up to your Dallas carpentry service appointment on time and with the right tools in the back of their company van. Whether you require a carpenter in Dallas for a custom mantel installation or a deck repair, our skilled carpenters have the expertise to get the job done.

We’re a leading choice for Dallas kitchen remodels due to our ability to do not just carpentry projects, but a myriad of other kitchen installations as well. This saves our customers from having to hire and coordinate multiple contractors for each type of job. Our talented finish carpentry experts can build custom and semi-custom wood cabinets to fit the exact dimensions of your project. One of the benefits of custom built-ins is that you can make the most use of the space you have.
To pull your whole space together, our detail-oriented service professionals can also create custom trim for your home. Different project types will require different types of trim. During your project consultation, our team can make trim work recommendations to ensure you end up with molding that fits your vision for your space.
Due to its warm, natural appearance, wood remains a popular choice of material for use throughout home exteriors and interiors. However, this organic material does come with some drawbacks. Even hardwood can dent, scratch, and warp with temperature fluctuations. Exterior wood can be especially susceptible to developing wood rot.
The longer you ignore damaged wood, the more likely it becomes that you’ll have to replace it. By repairing wood elements as needed both inside and outside of your home, you can avoid having to pay costly replacement fees.
Just some of the wood repairs our Dallas service professionals can do include:
- Fascia repairs
- Siding repairs
- Deck repairs
- Fence repairs
- Door repairs
- Window frame repair
- Wood floor refinishing and repair
- Crown molding repair
- And more!
The wood repair methods used by our technicians differ according to the project and type of damage. Wood fillers can often be used to fill holes and dents, but these are best for wood surfaces that are painted, or at least stained. While your service professional will do their best to match the filler to the wood color as best as they can, the repair will match the shape of the hole and therefore not follow the wood grain pattern.
If the issue is wood rot, don’t despair. Our technicians may be able to remove the damaged wood, apply a product to stop any remaining wood rot from spreading, and then fill in the hole. While we sometimes recommend a replacement for large wood rot issues, customers who live in historic homes may wish to preserve as much of the original wood as possible, making this a worthwhile repair.
In addition, we can sand down and refinish an old wooden interior floor or deck. Flooring installations and deck replacements can be fairly costly, but as long as these structures aren’t structurally unsound, our carpentry professionals can get them looking nearly brand-new again.

Maintaining Wood In Your Home’s Interior And Exterior
To keep your carpentry inside and outside of your home looking its best for years to come, it needs occasional maintenance. Interior and exterior carpentry require different types of maintenance and inspection.
Wood on your home’s interior should last for a long time without much maintenance as long as you treat it with care. Water, UV rays, and temperature fluctuations are wood’s biggest enemies, so do what you can to protect your wood fixtures from these things.
If you find evidence of water damage, treat it immediately. Keep wood away from windows, or apply a protective sealant to the wood to minimize the effects of sun damage. You can also apply a film to your windows to block some UV rays. Additionally, consider improving your home’s insulation if you find that humidity and temperature levels fluctuate frequently throughout the year.
Because exterior wood is constantly exposed to the elements, you’ll need to inspect it and provide maintenance every two to three years. To protect wooden decks, porches, fences, fascia boards, siding, window frames, and exterior doors from incurring wood rot, you’ll need to touch up their stains, paints, and sealants regularly.
If you notice any peeling paint or damage that has removed the paint or stain, make sure the wood is dry and then reapply the paint and stain immediately. Sealants should be applied every couple of years regardless of whether damage has occurred.

Dallas Carpentry Service FAQs
How Much Does A Carpenter in Dallas Cost?
The average cost of our Dallas carpentry services varies considerably from project to project. Some of the main factors that influence cost estimates include:
- Cost of materials: Supply chain disruptions and high demand can drive the cost of lumber up.
- Project complexity: The bigger the job, the more it will cost. A simple baseboard installation will cost less than a deck installation, due to the time and effort that goes into it.
- Project add-ons: Basic cabinets will cost less than intricate cabinets with decorative hinges. The more accessories and details you add to your service, the more it will cost.
For an accurate estimate, we’re happy to meet with prospective customers to discuss your project in depth.

Can I Do A Carpentry Project On My Own?
It depends—do you have carpentry experience and the tools required to do the job? Many customers may be able to adequately complete very minor cosmetic repairs, but projects that require cutting and measuring are best left to a professional carpenter in Dallas.
Our service technicians have trained and accumulated many years of handyman and carpentry experience to be able to complete projects to a professional standard. They also have all the required tools and safety training. If you want the job done right the first time, and you don’t want to have to spend money on equipment rentals, it’s best to hire a professional.
