Complete Flooring Installation Solutions

Carpet laying

Our installations team provide comprehensive floor laying services to the highest standards; but 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 floor fitters always start with the details, talking through your options, helping decide a covering and then measuring up to order everything in; the actual laying requires a series of steps to get the best possible results.

There are multiple steps when it comes to floor laying, but these are all necessary to provide you with the perfect and professionally fitted flooring of your dreams. There is little point in spending out on flooring product and not first preparing the subfloor.

We have a wide range of designer flooring for you to choose from, all of which are shown in our showroom. From Amtico and Karndean flooring, to Roger Oates; we have the perfect flooring for you and our floor fitters are equipped with everything they need to be able to get the job done to a professional standard.

When flooring is being installed, it needs to be done professionally to minimise the chances of future damage. If wood flooring is not fitted correctly and there are gaps within the wood; it could be a potential hazard and will cost a lot more to get it repaired. Our flooring and carpet fitters are all trained and have the knowledge they need to be able to install and fit all flooring to your specifications. Call us today on 01223 233233 to discuss your flooring requirements with the expert new carpet fitters here at Floor Coverings. We will provide you with the information and services you need.

Removal of old flooring

Any previous flooring should be completely removed before going through a complete new designer flooring installation. Our team of floor fitters will pull up carpets, laminate floor, linoleums and vinyl flooring to reveal the sub floor or floorboards beneath. We don't only install our laminate floor or vinyl flooring in your property; we ensure that we remove all the old flooring first so your new flooring is able to be laid perfectly. A well installed new carpet or hardwood floor will create a long lasting and high quality floor for your home so you don't have to worry about costly repairs.


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 other commercial installations, the flooring is placed directly onto the sub-floor so it’s essential for the team to check it over, ensure it is level and solid and that any essential repairs are carried out to prevent future issues.

Floor tile laying

Uneven or damp subfloors quickly create problems like trip hazards, messy carpeting and bowed laminates; a professional installation team like our floor fitters will always make sure the sub-floor is perfectly prepared to give the floor covering the best possible finish and longest life. No matter if it is a new laminate floor or new natural carpets; they will be installed professionally after our experts check and repair your subfloor. This gives your designer flooring the 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 produces 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.

No matter if you are getting flooring installed at home or at work; always make sure you bring in a professional team of floor fitters that follows all the steps and leaves you with a great looking floor that keeps looking great for many years afterwards! Be it a new carpet or designer vinyl flooring; they all require a professional installation with expert care afterwards.
