Amtico Flooring

With a top brand like Amtico, you can’t go wrong. Their floors are engineered with highly-compressed resin, making attractive vinyl flooring that will last.

Laminate Flooring

Wood laminate flooring is one of our most popular choices for its practicality and close resemblance to real wood. Choose from among one of the top wood laminate brands to impress your business clients.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Because vinyl comes in so many options, it’s usually an excellent choice for businesses. Vinyl can resemble wood or stone, but won’t cost nearly as much as the real thing.

Luvanto Flooring

For vinyl flooring that lasts, many of our commercial clients choose Luvanto. Their high-quality vinyl will stand up to knicks, scratches, and damage.

Wood Flooring

You can’t get more classic than hardwood flooring. We’ll help you choose the species, cut, colour, and style of wood flooring that suits your business needs.

Safety Flooring

Some commercial and industrial spaces require hardy flooring that won’t cause slips and falls. Safety flooring helps keep your workspace safe and look excellent.

In addition to being a flooring retail company, we’re also a floor fitting service. We have a streamlined fitting process that will ensure you get your new flooring without hassle. First, we’ll visit the site to measure and give you a time estimate. You can choose to have all the flooring fitted at once, or break the job up into several sessions. When our fitters arrive to install your new flooring, they’ll be courteous and respectful to your business operations, working around your schedule as much as possible. When it’s all done, we’ll clean everything up so you can start using your new flooring right away!

No job is too big or too small – or too complicated – for us to tackle. With our many years of expertise, you can trust that we’ll complete the job accurately and efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wood & Laminate Floors

Yes. There are many sound reducing underlays on the market which can be incorporated into the installation. These will offer a sound reduction of between 10 to 43 decibels.

Most manufacturers’ guarantees would be invalid if new underlay is not used.

Yes, but in most cases for wood it must be an engineered product, and you must use an appropriate underlay specifically designed for the purpose.

This would be due to excessive moisture. If you are using a mop to clean your floor ensure it is well wrung out before you start.

All wooden floors must be laid with room for expansion. There are various ways of concealing the expansion gap and we can happily show you all the various options.

Unless great care is taken with a wooden floor it is very likely to scratch. If you have a ‘shoes-off’ policy in your house this would reduce the likelihood of scratches, as will a strong doormat to catch loose grit at the entrance. In the case of laminates, they are highly scratch resistant.

Most wooden floors are more or less maintenance free but you should always follow the manufacturers recommended guidelines for maintaining your floor.


‘Tracking’, as it is known, may occur in high traffic areas, and will depend on the type of carpet you select. Carpets that are denser are less likely to track. To reduce the likelihood of this occurring it is recommended that carpets are vacuumed twice a week to lift the pile, and we also recommend that you have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year.

The average life span is 7 years although there are a lot of new carpets on the market that give a 10 year guarantee.

Depending on the type of carpet being installed either plywood or hardboard can be applied to the floorboards prior to your new carpet being fitted.

Yes, you can but low tog underlays must be used which will allow the heat to penetrate through to your room.

There are specialist underlays available that reduce this type of noise and we would be happy to provide advice to you if this is a concern.

Most manufacturers’ guarantees would be invalid if new underlay is not used.

I called Stuart Gaylor to ask him a last minute favour, I needed two large properties measuring for carpet and had been let down by my usual fitter.
