Your Top Choice For Minor Carpentry In Chicago

You may be unsure who to call when you need minor carpentry in Chicago. Whether it is for your home or commercial building, the answer is easy: ProActiv Prevention.

What Kind of Minor Carpentry Can ProActiv Prevention Take Care Of?

You might have a piece of loose trim around a doorway, a built-in bookshelf with a cracked shelf or a piece of molding that won’t stay in place. You might have a small cabinet you need to have installed or you may have dull or worn wood finishes that need to be refreshed.

However, you may hesitate at the cost of hiring an expensive finishing carpenter just to perform such relatively minor jobs. As always, ProActiv Prevention is here to handle almost any job you need around your home, or for your Homeowners Association (HOA) or commercial building.

Minor Carpentry Overview

Minor carpentry includes things like minor repairs, replacement or installation of any kind of wooden structure or trim. It includes both indoor and outdoor projects.

Minor carpentry refers to a variety of tasks involving the minor repair, replacement, and installation of wooden features inside or outside a property. The term “minor” is used to distinguish this range of tasks from the broader category of “carpentry,” which also includes major repairs and installations, rough carpentry (i.e. structural woodworking), detail work (finish carpentry), and more. In other words, light carpentry encompasses a smaller spectrum of duties that are largely aesthetic in nature but can also have structural implications.
