Why Be A Remodeling Carpenter for A Design-Build-Remodel Firm?

Why Would You Want A Career As A Remodeling Carpenter?

Being a carpenter is a rewarding career. Each day presents a new challenge that you get to solve for your clients. You have the advantage of seeing the end results of a project. Nothing beats using a set of skills to create something you're proud of and then handing it off to grateful clients who appreciate your effort.

As a remodeling carpenter, you get to see a project through from start to finish. You get to see how it was, you get to see it in progress, you get to finish it up, and you get to see the final results. Compare that to being a plumber or an electrician or heating contractor or a concrete guy or an excavator where you rarely see the finished job. Compare it to being on a framing crew, where you only see it at one phase. Compared to being a trim carpenter, where you only experience one part of the project.

The following are some of the reasons we love what we do and why being a remodeling carpenter is such a rewarding career. 

Working With Customers

Remodeling carpenters have the advantage of interacting with clients and homeowners. You get the reward of interacting with them, making a happy customer.

Using Problem Solving Skills

Earning a Living While Learning

You can learn on the job without taking on college debt that you might never overcome. You're well paid; you get paid to learn and you get paid to work. You get to begin earning money from day one instead of suffering as a poor college student and struggling with college debt.
