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.
