We don't stock materials. There are thousands of stores, both online and in-person, which stock a wide range of options. We are more than happy to give advice, but the choice of flooring is yours. The easiest option is for you to have the flooring and underlay delivered (we will let you know how much you need) while we sort out all the extra bits and pieces. If you prefer, we can source the materials and add the cost to the invoice.

Wood slightly expands and contracts depending on the temperature and moisture of the air around it. Therefore, most manufacturers recommend that boards are left to 'acclimatise' for 48 hours before installation. The packs should be arranged in a hashtag in the room where they are to be fitted, with the heating set to normal.

Even after the floor has been fitted, it can still expand as it settles. For this reason, there must be a small 'expansion gap' around the perimeter of the room. This is concealed by the skirting or trim.

If you have an old floor which needs to be removed, we can take care of it. Carpets are easy to remove, other types of floor may take a little bit longer.

We can also remove your old skirting boards, however this requires considerably more effort than adding trim.

 

In order to increase the lifespan of your floor, we will make sure the sub floor is smooth and level.  We will also treat any mould and reduce creaks to the best of our ability.

An elegant floor has a big impact on the appearance of any room. Have yours professionally fitted and we will make sure it is up to standard. Laminate and LVT are relatively easy to install, it's even suitable for DIY, but without the tools and experience it can be a hassle. Put your feet up and we will take care of it all.

We inspect every board before and after fitting to make sure all seams are tight and patterns don't repeat. Careful measurement and cutting to ensures a proper fit.

We can take care of any waste for your convenience. However, if it is an excess amount, we may have to charge extra.

If you would like us to do any other related work, or if any challenges arise, we will do what we can to leave you satisfied.
