We will be able to give you a clear schedule after we have carried out our initial survey, but as a general guide, solid floors can be installed at a rate of 30-40sq meters a day, floating floor laminates at 40-60sq meters a day and carpets and vinyls at 50-100sq meters a day.

Can I Fit Natural Fibre Carpets myself?

For Natural Fibre carpets, ie, Sisal, Coir, Jute and Grasses we recommend that you use a professional fitter. The site must be free from excessive moisture in the area the carpet is to be laid as it could cause shrinkage or mould. Our fitters are experienced in fitting all types of natural carpets. For more information please see our Services page or email us at or call us on 020 7700 7711.

Can I Fit wooden flooring on Underfloor Heating?

We do not recommend installing any solid wood floors over underfloor heating. If you choose to have this type of heating then there are certain points that need to be adheared to. We do have many engineered wood and laminate products which are suitable for laying over underfloor heating.
