Please recommend a flooring specialist you trust

Recommended Posts


Can anybody recommend someone who specialises in laying flooring? Ideally I want someone who can bring flooring samples and also provide a quote for the work. The work will be carried out in my mother's house, which is based in SE15.

I usually try to not interfere when work is being done at her house, but in the end, she ends up hiring unskilled tradesmen who carry out low-quality work.

A couple of years ago, she hired a guy who trimmed too much off the bottom of her doors and wasn't skilled enough to lay flooring round edges. He was a kind soul, but lacked the required expertise.

There were noticable gaps and weird cuts she had to put up with until she got the flooring removed and replaced with tiles laid by a professional.

The problem goes beyond flooring, but this is an area I would like to start with during this home refurbishment attempt. My job is to help her actualise the dream refurbishment that exists within her mind, but without getting in the way.

I trust that people here can make some good cost-effective recommendations.

Please feel free to PM me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I can highly recommend Merouane for this job. I found him on this forum, and I think he is quite well known in the area. His details and other reviews can be found on the site, his number is 07368258527.

Merouane did some flooring work for me recently, both laminate flooring, and repairs to Victorian pine floorboards underneath. His attention to detail and technical knowledge was really excellent. What is almost as important for me personally, is that he is a very nice guy and easy to get along with - he actually listens to what you say rather than ignore or humour you, to then go off and do his own thing, which is something some tradesmen I've used in the past have done. He is very neat and tidy too, and respectful when people are around while he works.

He is also very reasonable, and highly capable of doing many types of building work far beyond flooring.

Feel free to send me a pm if you want more info or to discuss, it's no problem at all.

    • Probably not, Alice. Never mind
    • I seem to remember it is quite straight forward - you just send them an email explicitly stating you are making a FOI request and who you are and say you want to see all the responses from the consultation. 
    • Vinegar seems to work. A few years ago we had a real fox problem, and I was told human urine is good. Thing is, it smells and seems you need a lot of it. Some vinegar along your perimeter should help. They've hundreds of other gardens to prowl.  
    • I was with TNV up until about a year ago and I had an out of hours emergency. I don’t know what they advise on their voicemail now but back then it was to go to the SLEVC on The High Parade in Streatham. In my panic I heard the message and went to Streatham instead of Camberwell (which is closer to ED) & the experience in Streatham was appalling. Perhaps my pet and I were just very unlucky with the vet on duty that particular night, I don’t know, as I hadn’t been before. But I do know I’ll always regret going to the High Parade clinic in Streatham and will never go near the place with a barge pole ever again. A couple of the nurses were wonderful but the rest was truly dreadful.
