R&B Restoration Carpentry, Inc. works on historic buildings dating from the mid-18th century to the mid-20th century and ranging from houses to farm buildings, churches, meetinghouses, offices, and industrial buildings. We are carpenters who love old buildings and tradition construction. We know how old buildings were put together and how to repair and preserve historic fabric. We can analyze the causes of defects and design appropriate repairs. Working with historical architects and engineers, we build additions and undertake wholesale structural repairs. All of our jobsites are located within an hour’s drive of West Chester, PA, which includes Pottstown, western Philadelphia, Wilmington and New Castle, Delaware, and all of Chester County, Pennsylvania.

We are looking for carpenters at two levels:

  • Advanced Apprentice – someone with training in carpentry with either a trade-school diploma (or certificate) or up to 5 years of work as a trim or finish carpenter. Experience working on historic buildings is not required, but an appreciation of historic preservation is.
  • Jobsite Foreman – someone with the qualifications (training and/or experience) to lead a team of carpenters to undertake the scope of work.  Experience working on historic buildings is required.

Job benefits: Paid vacation and holiday time, paid sick leave, retirement plan with employer contributions.

Compensation: $40,000 to $90,000 depending upon capabilities

Physical Demands / Work Environment: The work is physically demanding. Exposure to weather, heavy loads and risks to health and safety is expected. Safety training, PPE, and risk assessments for each job to minimize/eliminate risk is provided.
