Our installations team provide comprehensive floor laying services to the highest standards; bet what does that involve?
Flooring is simply a covering for your true floor, and professional laying requires just as much attention being given to what’s underneath as to what’s in plain view. Our team always start with the details talking through your options, helping decide a covering then measuring up to order everything in; the actual laying requires a series of steps to get the best possible results.
Removal of old flooring
Any previous flooring should be completely removed and the team will pull up carpets, laminates, linos and vinyl to reveal the sub floor or floorboards beneath.
The subfloor is simply the solid ground beneath, in domestic installations most houses have floorboards above their subfloor so minimal work is required on it. In some basements, kitchens and many commercial installations the flooring is placed directly onto the sub-floor so it’s essential for the team to check it over, ensure it’s level, solid and that any essential repairs are carried out which would otherwise affect the floor covering.
Uneven or damp subfloors quickly create problems like trip hazards, messy carpeting and bowed laminates; a professional installation team will always make sure the sub-floor is perfectly prepared to give the floor covering the best possible finish and longest life.
Next the actual flooring is laid using a variety of techniques; carpets are skilfully cut then stretched into place on carpet grippers ensuring a tight and firm fit to the subfloor or floor boards. Quality vinyl flooring can produce a similar effect to natural flooring without the practical drawbacks, whilst laminates and real wood are quickly cut to fit rooms perfectly using all the right tools to get a pristine finish.
Whether getting flooring installed at home or at work always make sure you bring in a professional team that follows all the steps and leaves you with a great looking floor that stays looking great for many years afterwards!
