Carpenters cut, shape, and install building materials in order to construct and maintain houses, office buildings, factories, and other structures.
Carpenters working on commercial projects put up framing, drywall, insulation, flooring and roofing and may choose to involve themselves with cabinetry and interior trim work.
When it comes to industrial projects, carpenters typically build and install concrete framework and bracing.
