Shuttering Carpenter Aberdare

Shuttering Carpenter Aberdare Wales

Any concrete works in Aberdare that requires pouring into a mould or formwork will require a professional shuttering carpenter to build the framing. The wooden form has to be made to the specific dimensions of the project and be sufficiently strong enough to hold the concrete mixture in place without flexing or bending.

Although all wooden shuttering needs the skills of a carpenter, not all carpenters in Aberdare are trained in installing concrete shuttering. It's the ability to spot any potential trouble spots before, and during the pouring of concrete, that makes a shuttering carpenter an essential part of any concreting project in Aberdare. Their knowledge doesn't just cover skills in carpentry, because they are required to understand the stresses on, and strength of the shuttering for the various different concrete pouring scenarios.

Many building firms in the Aberdare area will employ their own shuttering carpenters, however if you're hiring one independently, make sure they hold the relevant qualifications (including a valid CSCS card) and check any professional trade body memberships.

Aberdare Carpenters and Joiners

Carpenters and Joiners Aberdare

Now, many of you in Aberdare might well be slightly mystified about the actual meaning of the term "carpentry and joinery" or "carpenters and joiners", and quite frankly those phrases can be somewhat ambiguous. In fact there have been quite a few instances over the years when I have heard people ask "just what are the differences between a joiner and carpenter?" and without doubt there can be marked differences. While now and again you might meet a craftsman in Aberdare who is genuinely a "carpenter and joiner", usually he or she will be one or the other. So precisely what is the difference? Well a simple response would be that a joiner does his stuff in a workshop environment, whilst a carpenter typically works on site, to illustrate, a joiner will construct a window frame in his workshop using tools, machinery and jigs, while a carpenter installs the window frame in the building on site. Each type of craftsman knows a little about the others skillsets though may be unable to exchange places without doing extra training. To add even more confusion, those planning to get carpentry apprenticeships in Aberdare, Wales, will be required to sit a City and Guilds exam in "Carpentry and Joinery" but may actually be employed as either a carpenter or joiner ie either be working out on site or in a joinery workshop.
