Find a local, flooring installation specialist near you

Looking for skilled professionals to install your dream flooring? You’re in the right place. Choosing the right flooring installers can make all the difference to the look and feel of your home.  

Factors to consider when hiring a local floor fitting specialist  

It’s really important that you choose a reliable floor fitting service to carry out work on your home. Failing to do this can result in stress and expensive repairs.   

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your fitters: 

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of high quality projects  
  1. Have all the necessary licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers 
  1. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability  
  1. Are offering the floor installation services you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by 
  1. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other flooring installation services  

A local fitter service is more likely to respond quickly as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.

What a floor fitter can help you with  

An experienced flooring specialist can install a range of flooring types throughout your home, including laying new carpet if yours needs replacing. They’re skilled at working with a range of materials, including laminate, linoleum, vinyl, rubber, polished concrete and wood – both solid and engineered. They can help remove old flooring and also sand and finish floors, as well as carry out floor repair services.  

The most popular jobs floor fitters carry out include: 

A good floor installation service will be happy to suggest the best flooring materials for any given room in your home. They’ll know what types are best avoided in wet areas like the bathroom, as well as which materials are within your price range and will suit your needs. 

Some floor fitters specialise in certain areas like laying carpets or fitting solid wooden flooring. To help your floor fitter quote accurately for your installation or floor repair job, make sure you add plenty of details about the job, such as which room you’d like new flooring in and the size of the space.

How much does a floor fitter cost? 

The cost of hiring a floor fitter varies depending on the type of work and where you live in the UK. On average, you can expect to pay between £15 and £45 per hour or between £40 and £400 a day to hire a floor fitter.  

For a more accurate quote for your specific project, floor size, and choice of materials, request a quote today from a local flooring specialist. We recommend you include plenty of details to help your tradespeople understand the scope of the job.

What are the different types of flooring? 

Here are five of the most popular flooring materials, alongside their key features: 

  1. Carpet – Offers a soft, cushioning effect as well as noise and heat insulation. Carpet rubber underlay is also long lasting and breathable. Carpet is best suited for bedrooms and living rooms and away from kitchens and bathrooms to avoid wet areas. 
  1. Vinyl – Creates a polished look that is well suited to both wet and dry areas. Vinyl is also quiet to walk on and is resistant to scratches and stains. 
  1. Rubber – A quiet, shock-proof flooring option perfect for children’s bedrooms. It’s also humidity resistant, though it can get very slippery when wet. 
  1. Hardwood – Has a long life and can be sanded and recoated multiple times. Not good in moist, humid environments and can be more expensive to install, but it’s also considered one of the most aesthetic choices. 
  1. Laminate – A cheaper alternative to wood which can resemble wood, stone or metal flooring. It’s also a scratch resistant material, but it’s not recommended for bathrooms as it’s not as moisture resistant as vinyl.  

You can also get parquet flooring, bamboo flooring, linoleum flooring and polished concrete flooring, amongst a range of other options. 

Not sure what material would be best for your new floors? A flooring specialist can give you some recommendations based on where the flooring’s going, your style preferences and any budget considerations to help you decide. 

Find a local floor fitter

Do you need planning permission to install new flooring? 

Planning permission isn’t normally required to replace a floor. However, if you live in a listed building, you should contact your Local Planning Authority and read our planning permission guide before carrying out any work as different rules may apply.

Questions to ask a floor fitter  

How many years of experience do you have? 

Knowing how many years of experience your floor fitter has will allow you to pick a flooring specialist who you are confident has sufficient expertise to carry out a high quality job. When you’re finding a tradesperson through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews. 

How much will the job cost? 

Asking how much the job will cost will help you budget for your project and will ensure price transparency before you hire. How much you’ll end up spending depends on the scope of your project, and where you live in the UK, so make sure you add plenty of details when you post a job. 

How long will the job take? 

Knowing what your project’s estimated timeline is will help you set realistic expectations about how long your floor renovation will take to complete. 

Are you licensed and insured? 

Make sure to ask your flooring expert what insurance they have before you hire them. While it’s not a requirement, it’s a good idea for your floor fitter to have public liability insurance to cover you and them against any accidental damage done to your home or personal injuries. This will guarantee protection for both parties and ensure your tradesperson is legally compliant.

Great job - Luke communicated well all along the way. He contacted me promptly, arrived on time to check out the work and then sent a quotation the next day. His team arrived bang on time to do the job and we’re quick and friendly. The work seems to be great - spotlights in bathroom and kitchen replaced, and front plates for light switches and plug sockets. Top job!

I have been self employed for 7 1/2years now, I really enjoy the freedom it gives me to take on a wide variety of projects and the responsibility that comes with creating what customers want. I believe I have a good eye for detail, and i work hard with my customers to implement their ideas. I give alternative ideas and thoughts to give customers a better overview of what they could have and potentially achieve. I like to think I’m relaxed, easy going and approachable and i think the relationship between customer and tradesman is as crucial as the work itself. I have worked all over the country on a wide range of projects installing timber bridges, boardwalks, and jetties. This gave me great experience, dealing with customers and problem solving. I thoroughly enjoy my work and love working outdoors, helping to create great gardens for people to enjoy.
