Floor fitting

The products

We work with a range or different flooring in order to meet your specific requirements.

Solid Hardwood

A solid wooden floor is extremely durable and hard wearing. There are many ancient floors around which are still in pristine condition. A solid wooden floor is recommended for areas of high traffic such as a busy family home as it lasts for generations. The floor can be re-sanded in years to come to look like new again.

We offer our customers a wide range of timber and grades. We use high quality and trusted brands such as Berthold, Kährs, Junckers, Cheetah and Jura.

The plank width varies from 70–200mm, with thickness being 18–22mm.

Fitting a wooden floor
Fitting a wooden floor

Please note that any wooden floor is subject to expansion and contraction, according to the amount of moisture in the immediate environment. Hardwood boards may contract slightly during winter months (as central heating produces a much drier atmosphere) and expand slightly during the summer when windows are open and the atmosphere within the house has more moisture. This seasonal movement is a normal characteristic of wooden floors and it never stops - regardless of the age of the wooden floor.

Engineered Flooring

Engineered wooden floors can be more resistant to moisture and tend to be more stable. Engineered flooring is the best option for use with underfloor heating systems. Solid wood floors are more prone to expansion and contraction with the changing temperatures.

We offer our customers a range of engineered flooring. We use high quality and trusted brands such as Cheetah and Super6.

The plank width varies from 120–190mm, with thickness being 14–20mm.

Please note that engineered flooring has a 4-6mm wear layer for re-sanding.

After inspecting your site we first prepare the subfloor. If we are fitting wooden flooring onto wood, we make sure that all subfloors are sound and dry. We then start installing the planks with screws, which is by far the best way to work; screws can be removed easily if necessary, but nails are not so easy.

When fitting wood over a screed or concrete subfloor we use appropriate adhesives to stick the floor down or lay a floating installation over an underlay. Yes, you can fit a wooden floor over concrete.

Once the floor installation is complete, skirting boards or beadings are fitted, doors trimmed, and the threshold fitted.

A prefinished floor, once in place, will be ready to use straightaway. If the boards were unfinished, we would apply the finish you have chosen.

Aftercare and maintenance

We will supply you with maintenance products such as felt pads and cleaning solutions if you wish. It is most important to keep wooden floors clean and free of any abrasive dirt. We recommend that areas with a high amount of traffic, such as kitchens, are recoated on an annual basis. For this purpose we can put you onto our 'Maintenance List' and will then contact you automatically after a 12-month period with the offer to inspect and recoat your floors.
