Our installers have an unparalleled level of knowledge for all types of flooring installation. Ranging from sheet vinyl, Safety flooring, Laminate, Solid/Engineered oaks to Luxury Vinyl Tiles.

All of our carpet fitters are employed by our company – We DO NOT use and sub contract carpet fitters. Our carpet fitter have worked for us since we opened in December 2015 so you can be assured of a very high standard of workmanship.

Our in house fitting team will be on hand to uplift and dispose of any old flooring and will assist with moving any furniture.

Plant-based fibre carpets – Sisal, Seagrass, Jute and Coir – should be fitted with the double stick system. An underlay is glued to the sub-floor, then the carpet is glued to the underlay, with gripper rods used around the perimeter.

Standard Carpets – Wool and man made carpets our traditionally installed with underlay and gripper rods to the perimeter of the room.

Gel back carpets – More used in places such as nursing homes gel back carpets our best to be fully adhered to the floor using carpet adhesive that is spread across the whole area being installed.

Safety flooring – Usually used in wet rooms hospitals and commercial kitchens. Safety flooring is a very hard wearing product and is also non slip. These types of floors can be flat laid from wall to wall or capped and coved up the wall generally around 100-150mm and our most commonly fully adhered to the sub-floor.

Luxury Vinyl Tile – This flooring can have so much done with it, from boarders, design strips and motifs. This flooring can be laid at any angle you wish and is very versatile.

Solid/engineered wood – Engineered and solid woods are traditionally stuck the a thin underlay over the subfloor to stop the clicking sound of the wood hitting the floor underneath.

Floating floors – Most floating floors whether they are Laminate or LVT are generally fitted on to a thin underlay with beading around the perimeter of the room to allow the flooring to contract and expand as it needs to. To avoid beady skirting boards can be fitted after a floating floor is laid.

Sheet Vinyl – Vinyl is usually used in areas of a home such as kitchens and bathroom depending on the size or use of the area would determine the method of installation. In a small bathroom this would generally be perimeter fixed with double sided anti-plas / cloth tape. In a larger kitchen area we would normally go the route of completely sticking the vinyl to the sub-floor.
