Rates for basement framing and carpentry work quote:

Just wondering what the going average hourly rate is for a carpenter is these days?
I have some final work that needs to be done in my basement before moving on to electrical. Framing and some duct and cold air return relocation work.

Cheers

Depends what skill level you want finishing it...

$20-$25/hr for your average kijiji guy
$40+/hr for a skilled carpenter

I hired a guy off Kijiji for mine, basically if you get a few quotes you can get a feel for who knows what they are doing. It turns out he was framing homes down the street for a builder. He came buy, gave me a flat quote for the work and materials.

I believe the labour cost worked out to around 30~ per hour when it was all said and done. With a flat rate he didn't have any reason to drag it out, he just came and worked hard non-stop. I try not to hire on an hourly rate for this reason, too many contractors will just drag it out on purpose.

Passed the home inspection by the city with no issues. Way cheaper than hiring a middle man outfit.

Thanks guys, sorry I thought I had email notifications on for this, just noticed the replies now.

I had a guy come by, $75/hr he wants. Now he seems super smart about basement development and building in general, and is likely very good, but the rate seems high and probably too high for my budget. Especially for about 3 days of work.

I'll check kijiji and get some quotes.
