Our in-house team of installers have been with us for many years, some for decades, and are real experts in their field. They all have a sound carpentry education under their belt and will use their skills to turn your floor into a thing of beauty, all delivered with a meticulous eye for detail, a serious work ethic, and a ‘can do’ attitude. Often a project involves much more than fitting a floor: doors need to be trimmed, steps need to be clad, and many other details requiring perfect execution. Our team delivers this on a daily basis.
We’ll go ahead and say it: a new timber floor is never an inexpensive undertaking. This is the reality.
In addition, the floor that you install now will be with you for years, even decades to come. You have one chance to get it right. The quality of the installation figures into the equation every bit as much as the quality of the floor itself. Our 25 years of experience in installing floors have taught us as much. Solid Floor believes that we should be installing the flooring you buy from us.
Unlike many of our competitors, we actively promote our installation programme. The reason for this is twofold. A good product can be ruined in the wrong hands. Likewise, it excels in the right ones.
A reliable supplier, providing a quality product, with their own installers handing and installing the material with which they are familiar, is the optimal arrangement. Being in control of the entirety of this process allows us to maintain the maximum level of excellence. No matter how good your general contractor is, they are unlikely to be intimately familiar with our flooring.
The advantages for you the consumer – professional or homeowner – are obvious. Not only do you streamline the entire procurement process whiling cutting out the potential for any unfortunate supplier - installer friction, but you end up with a truly outstanding floor made all the more so by an incomparable, professional installation.
Additionally, by choosing us for installation, Solid Floor guarantees both the flooring itself and the installation. The value of this is evident, whether you routinely specify flooring or are purchasing for your first home.
If a third party has fitted the floor we cannot guarantee the floor because we are unable to establish how it was installed, whether they have properly prepared the sub floor, or if the site and environmental conditions were monitored and managed. Most issues that arise with timber floors are the result of a failure in preparation or poor management of site conditions.
The devil, as they say, is in the detail. With a floor installed by Solid Floor, you can expect the following:
