I pride myself on being honest, reliable, and professional with work that speaks for itself. If you would like a personal touch added to your flooring, take a look at our work below and please get in touch!

Carpets & vinyl

Carpets have been used for thousands of years, they are practical, comfortable and luxurious. I can source all types of carpets to suit a broad price range. All expertly fitted to British Standards.

Cushion floor sheet vinyl creates a sealed hygienic, easy to clean surface. There are many designs to choose from. I offer a fully bonded vinyl installation service to maximise the life of the floor.

Karndean & Amtico

This type of flooring is still gaining popularity and over 50 years has evolved into a high tech product featuring ‘HD printing’ which can re-create different surfaces like stone and wood and other abstract materials. Karndean, Polyflor & Amtico are well known established manufacturers among other new competing brands.

It is important this type of flooring is installed correctly especially the preparation. It is durable, soft and warm underfoot, beautiful and easy to maintain.
