About Gary Houston Carpet & Flooring

Im based in North Ayrshire, ive been trading for 18 yrs in that time ive worked for two big retailers the last one being Tapi Carpets, late 2017 i decided to leave the security of contracting to shops and get out and grow my own customer base, based on high quality work, repeat custom and recomendations, early this year i will be starting to supply carpets, underlay, gripper, door bars, vinyls, luxury vinyl tiles, laminate etc
Ive also been assesed from F.I.T.A. (Flooring industry training assosiation) i was assesed on the job (2 customers houses) all aspects of my work were covered carpets, vinyls, joins, stairs and also my prep underlay & gripper. At the time of being assesed i was working with a major retailer (carpet right) all the carpet fitters contracted to Carpet Right in Scotland got assesed over a short period and at the end of it the area manager congratulated me and my dad of being 2 of 6 fitters that stood out to them as having above average standard of work, i was really happy with that even tho we didnt recieve any better qualification we did get some recognition within the company and rest of fitters. Im also F.I.T.A. certified with LVT (Luxury vinyl tiles) and also Sub floor preperation whether it be ply boarding or self leveling screed.
I also decided late 2016 that i wanted to learn of the best so i decided to go and do the advanced QUICK STEP laminate Master installer course and i was accredited by the QUICK STEP Academy for excellence in flooring in the instalation of laminate, real wood engineared and soloutions, ive also got a video of my assesment on an other social media business page and also overal 5 stars review on my page, would just like to finish of letting you know i take all major credit and debit payments via my mobile machine. Thanks for reading.
