Laminate and Wood Floors

Had a really hectic week again which is good as I like to keep busy, I’ve transformed 4 rooms this week by laying beautiful floors and have been out giving free no obligation quotes most evenings.

Solid Pre-finished Oak Real Wood Flooring

It took 2 days to transform a large bedroom for a previous customer in Gamston using 120mm wide boards of solid oak real wood flooring.  I was supposed to be secret nailing the floor but when I arrived and inspected the existing floor after the carpet had been removed I discovered that the central heating pipes were laid close underneath the floorboards.  I advised the customer that I would prefer not to nail the floor as the risk of putting a nail through a water pipe was too great.  After discussing safer methods with her, we agreed that I would glue the floor down to avoid any water leaks.  I also fitted MDF Torus skirting round the room.  The customer was very happy with the result and said the room looked fantastic. 

Quickstep Oak Rustic Laminate

I transformed a hallway inWest Bridgfordfor an employee of Kings Carpets who I used to contract out to a few years ago.  This was a recommendation from another employee who I have previously laid a floor for.  I took this as a massive compliment as Kings Carpets have their own fitters who she could have used.  I supplied and fitted Quickstep Oak Rustic laminate and again the results were spectacular.  When bending down under the stairs I felt a tickling in my hair and jumped up banging my head when I saw a giant spider drop down – I hate spiders! 

Quickstep White Oak Natural Laminate

This was a lead from the Rated People website where I get quite a bit of work from.  I quoted for supply and fit of Quickstep White Oak Natural laminate at a house in Clifton, along with 2 other floor layers.  I secured the job for fitting only as the customer chose to buy her own flooring from B&Q, which turned out to be the same floor I had quoted her for but cost more money!  I had to carry my tools up to the third floor to lay the floor in a nursery, the customer was very pleased with the result and gave me an excellent rating on my Rated People profile of 5 stars and quoted: Darren did a fantastic job. Efficient, great quality and we would thoroughly recommend him. Will definitely use him again! 

White Egger Laminate

This was for a previous customer in Cropwell Butler, I have done all the rooms in her house and this was the last bedroom.  I have now transformed her whole house!  The children loved the white Egger laminate I have laid in all the bedrooms.  The Egger laminate looks lovely, you can clearly see the grain pattern particularly in the white laminate.  When I asked if she wanted to check my work before paying she said she didn’t need to as all my previous work had been exemplary. 

Quickstep Elite Old White Oak Natural Laminate

I quoted a wheelchair user in West Bridgford this week for the supply and fit of Quickstep Elite Old White Oak Natural laminate.  Laminate flooring had been recommended for ease of wheelchair use.  I advised to run the flooring from room to room avoiding the use of door bars for easier accessibility even though this entails more work.  I later secured the job as the customer appreciated my advice and likes my friendly approach.

Laminate Flooring

I also quoted this week in Ruddington and left sample swatches of Egger Laminate and Quickstep Laminate with the customer to peruse at their leisure.  Hopefully I should hear back from them next week.
