Commercial vs Residential Carpentry

 While both commercial and residential (or domestic) carpentry involve working with wood, timber and other materials to create high-quality structures and finishes, there are some differences between the two. Luckily Excel Carpentry Contractors are both a residential and commercial carpentry company offering packages in both disciplines. Commercial carpentry for the most part involves larger-scale projects in public environments such as offices, schools, hospitals and even retail spaces, whilst residential carpentry focuses on smaller-scale projects such as homes and flats.

  • Education
  • Student Accommodation
  • Residential Developments
  • Healthcare
  • Office and Lab Fit-Out
  • Restoration
  • Hospitality
