Although the quality of our work is always of the highest professional standard, fitting floors in private homes is a bit more of a challenge. Our clients live, eat, sleep and relax there; we know that restoring, maintaining or fitting a brand new floor can be impose on their privacy and could make life uncomfortable. So we work cleanly, quickly and as quietly as we can without compromising the quality of our service.
We welcome the opportunity to give you a quotation. We do not pretend to be the cheapest but you will not find better value for money. We measure up with great precision so the amount of wastage is minimised. Also to be sure we do not underestimate the materials we need. This avoids reordering a delivery and consequent delay.
We will also look carefully at the sub floor. Unless the floor is laid on a firm and flat underlying layer, it will not be long before things start creaking and falling apart. You will be wasting your money. We do not allow that. The final finish and feel of the floor are down to the subfloor. When subfloor is imperfect; these imperfections transfer to your new floor. We have the skills and knowledge to fix an imperfect subfloor and will discuss these options with you.
The choices of wood, styling of design, colour, finish end up as a permutation of myriad options. So, you may need some help, that is, unless you are very clear at the outset what suits your home best. Even then it’s good to discuss it with us as we know the technology
Some floors need to be as neutral as possible to highlight the décor of the room; some can be ornate to be integrated into the décor.
We work closely with Britain’s top suppliers of wood flooring so we know who to approach for exactly the right hardwood. All our suppliers are committed to ethically harvested woods from around the world.
We take great care to fit floors perfectly. Fitting is wall to wall without a visible gap between floor and wall. We work precisely around corners so the finished floor fits like a glove.
Once the floor has been laid, we can offer a variety of finishes from lacquers to oils, colour stains to colour oils and even reactive stains to age the timber.
