Do I Need a Wood Floor Fitter, and How Do I Choose One?

A great wood floor fitter will provide your home with beautiful flooring, and so it’s important to select a local tradesman who will ensure that your wood floors are high-quality, durable and easy to maintain. Wood floors have many advantages over other floor types like laminate, however they do have to be installed correctly in order to be of benefit. There are many instances when you might require the expertise of a wood floor contractor:

  • If you want to remodel the interior design of your home
  • When your current floor is due for renovation, perhaps because it is wearing out or damaged
  • If you’re building a new home from scratch
  • If you’re changing the use or function of a room — converting a living room into a dining room, for example. There are many types of rooms that will benefit from a wood floor, whether aesthetically or practically.

In all of the above circumstances, it’s advisable to seek the advice of a local wood floor fitter. Whether you’re embarking on new wood floor installation, or restoring some old wood floor in your home, you will need a local flooring contractor, who will handle the entire process and ensure your improvements to your home’s wood floors increase its value.

What Does a Wood Flooring Contractor Do?

Flooring contractors specialise in flooring installation and repair. Their work ranges from fitting carpets and tiles to laying timber wood and replacing laminate. These specialists will be able to select the right materials for your floor based on the intended use of your room, your budget, and the overall aesthetic you want to create, from carpet and wood to resin and asphalt.

The responsibilities of a professional flooring specialist include:

  • Preparing work spaces: Before laying the wood flooringl, it’s important the work area is prepared to ensure the longevity of your new floor. A specialist will clear the work area and remove old floors if required. If they are building a new floor, they will first lay a concrete sub-floor, then lay screed (a thin layer of specialist concrete) to ensure it is level.
  • Administrative duties: While installing a new floor is largely a practical job, as with any work there are administrative tasks to be completed. These duties include working with other tradesmen on site (during renovation or building), estimating the cost and amount of materials needed, and liaising with the main contractor if the floor work is part of a larger job.
  • Carpentry duties: Wood floor fitters are equipped with specialist carpentry skills that allow them to work with the materials needed to complete the job. They’ll be experts in installing different types of wood flooring, whether that’s parquet, floating or solid wood floors, and they’ll be able to attend to small details like sanding down the wood to make sure it’s even, and matching it up with any pre-existing skirting on your walls.
  • Finishes: The right finish can make a big difference to your floor. A wood floor fitter will usually wax or spray your floor for protection and decoration.
  • Wood floor repair and maintenance: Your floor installation doesn’t end when your wood floor has been fitted. Professional floor fitters will also be on hand to repair and maintain your floor, ensuring that it lasts for many years to come.
