About The London Wood Flooring Co.
The London Wood Flooring Co. are a professional, fully bona fide flooring sales and installation company. Aswell as floor fitting, we offer a floor sanding & restoration service, and more recently, a consultancy and damage assessment service for customers who've experienced issues with their installations when using 3rd party fitters. Established in 1998, we have fitting contracts across the UK, and are able to supply and fit a wide range of products to suit all tastes and budgets. Everything we do is carried out to the relevant British Standards codes of practice and also conforms to the standards set by The British Wood Flooring Association, of which we work closely with.
Our excellent craftsmanship and customer service is widely recognised from across the South East. This has helped us build firm relationships with architects, builders, property developers, dept stores and a huge number of private customers.
All works undertaken by us is done so to meet the relevant manufacturers standard specification. This is usually overlooked by most fitters simply to save time and increase revenue. We appreciate the fact that you want your new floor to last for years to come so everything we do is done with the care and quality that you'd expect from a specialist company. Our 100% positive feedback speaks for itself there. Fitting to British Standards also helps to validate your guarantee from the manufacturer. If your floor hasn't been fitted to meet these standards then your manufacturers warranty will be worthless should anything go wrong.
We are fully insured up to the value of £1million. We are fully trained in all aspects of wood flooring and wood floor restoration and have numerous accreditations and qualifications from numerous organisations and manufacturers from across the UK & Europe.
