You may be bewildered by the sheer choice of flooring available to you. From carpets to solid wood, the possibilities are endless. As with any decision, it pays to do your research and assess your needs and then ask us for further advice.
Let’s look first at domestic settings – a typical home. No one would really opt for carpets in kitchens as it is better to have something washable (ditto bathrooms, WCs and wet rooms). You can opt for a waterproof laminate flooring or waterproof engineered flooring product or, increasingly popular, are so called Luxury Vinyl Tiles, which are a premium product with long domestic (and commercial guarantees). These often replicate the look and feel of real wood – without their drawbacks. Underfloor heating can be installed with LVTs. They are waterproof and don’t warp or expand in areas of high humidity, like conservatories and bathrooms. Even better they are warmer underfoot than ceramic tiles and are perfect for families with children or pets.
We can supply and fit the full range of LVTs from companies like Amtico, Polyflor, Karndean etc.
The key to installing LVTs is thorough, expert preparation. A subfloor has to be silky smooth with no surface imperfections as there is often no form of underlay as the tiles or planks sit directly on new screed.
The finished result is stunning and the look can be customised with edging, decorative borders and inserts.
