Frequently Asked Questions

We hope this page answers any initial queries you may have about laminate flooring and/or our service. For any other queries, or to request your free, no obligation quote, please contact us.

Do you have a shop?

Sorry no, we prefer the more personal touch and come out to you with the samples.

(Please see other faq for the reason why)

Is there a cost for you to provide me with a quote?

No. We provide FREE quotations...... We call around to your home, measure up and inspect whilst you look through as many samples as you want. We'll then take away the details to work out your quote as soon as possible. We will then send it to you by e-mail or post if you prefer. (Even a summary by text if you wish.) 

How do I know what type and quality of laminate flooring / engineered real wood flooring to choose?

There are many styles and qualities to choose from. The samples we carry are those that we have fitted hundreds, if not thousands, of times over the years and have had no product issues referred back to us by customers. So we are therefore very confident in their quality. In fact the only time we usually hear from old customers is when they want another room doing.

No Laminate floor however, is indestructible but you are much more unlikely to damage it than if you have Engineered Real Wood Flooring, Laminate stays and looks as good as new for many years, if its looked after properly.

Engineered Real Wood Flooring, is obviously the 'Real Thing' and it's character changes and develops as it gets used and exposed to sun light. Scuff marks and scratches are to be expected. The good news is that you can get your real wood floor sanded back down to a new top layer and reoiled / lacquared after 5/10 years if you wish, that way it looks like new again. We supply from various sources with our main manufacturer including Avalin.

I’ve purchased my own laminate flooring. Do you do “fit only”?

Yes! If you have already bought or have your eye on your new floor from another source then yes, that's fine, we are happy to fit it for you.

We would still like to visit to measure up, inspect and take a look at the floor you are buying. That way we can help you with the quantities and products of your shopping list.

I’m sourcing my own laminate flooring. Any advice?

Our advice would be very much along the lines of :- You get what you pay for. It is worth paying a bit more and going for say, the middle range, as experience tells us all that the cheapest will more than likely not last and look good for long.

How soon can you fit my laminate flooring?

There is no hard and fast answer to this one!

As a rule of thumb 2 to 3 weeks is the norm but quite often other customers do postpone (decorator, builders etc not quite finished) in which case you could get a call to see if you want to move forward.

On the other hand sometimes straight away the diary is kind to you and your floor could be measured quoted for and fitted all within a week or so.

What colours and styles are there?

There are almost too many! What with smooth or textured finish, grooves and no grooves, dark and light, thin or thicker flooring, its all very confusing.

What can we do to help? Well, rather than you visiting a highly fluorescent lit shop, we come out to you so that the samples of the laminate and/or engineered real wood flooring can be seen in your own rooms in your own lighting with your own decor. That way we can discuss the colours and various styles in the actual rooms where they are going to be fitted.

We always carry with us a good range of flooring samples from various brands to make your decisions easier.

Can I pay you cash? (Wink,Wink)

Yes, by all means, however, we are a registered limited company. So whether you settle your invoice by cash, cheque or bank to bank transfer the payment always goes through the company accounts.
