Carpentry around your home can take any form depending on its age or style. As an experienced carpentry company in Sydney, Buildwyse Constructions has expertise in all styles and techniques, both inside and out.
The wooden framework is the backbone of any house. Most roof support structures are timber and need to be built accurately, particularly if the roof design is more complex. Walls and floors also require accurate, level and flat framework for quality results. And for any structural carpentry right choice of wood is important to minimise chances of damage from water or pests in the long term.
Carpentry in older homes
The interiors of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian period homes heavily feature ornate woodwork such as architraves, picture rails, skirting boards, chair rails and dado rails which were either painted or polished. Buildwyse proprietor Scott Wellings has extensive experience with older homes in Sydney’s inner west, and is conversant with the correct profiles and the best suppliers for heritage timbers.
The Federation style brought the structural woodwork out on view as the angled ends of the roof members are a recognisable part of the look, complementing the ornate timber fretwork was a real feature of the balconies and verandahs of the time. In extending your Sydney heritage home Buildwyse can seamlessly retain the style of its interior and exterior woodwork for the most authentic result.
Custom timber cabinetry in newer Sydney homes
Many newer homes, particularly those designed by an architect, feature custom timber cabinetry integrated into living rooms and bedrooms. Our skilled senior cabinetmakers can build and finish in any timber and style to please the most discerning eye. This allows Buildwyse Constructions to take a job from start to finely finished completion.
Repair and revival of a 1960s floor in Miranda
We repaired rotting floor timbers in a 1960s home in Miranda with matching Cypress pine boards milled to the same 2” (50mm) width. We then sanded, sealed and applied a durable polyurethane finish to the floors in the whole house.
Replacement of weatherboards in St Peters
As we replaced rotting original weatherboards on the front and sides of this early Victorian workman’s cottage, we incorporated wall breather sarking and insulation batts and straightened the wall profile where necessary with packing. We also
repropped the bullnose awning supports that had been displaced by tree roots.
