A good solid floor is one that complements your decor and takes into consideration the use it will get. At DKM Developments Ltd we can remove your exiting floor coverings, organise disposal, prepare your sub-floor and fit the floor so that it looks good lasting for years to come.
When installed and cared for correctly you should get years of use out of a laminate, engineered or solid wood floor. Our customers usually choose and purchase their floor and we then fit it for them. This has worked well in the past as it is always good to see the product and get a feel for this before making a decision on committing to a purchase. This is then delivered to site and left to acclimatise according to manufacturers guidelines. Solid wood needs much longer sometimes up to a month!
We carry out a brief floor survey as part of our visit. Solid floors work best when fitted on a level, flat and smooth surface. Unfortunately, most floors are not like this. We offer a service for preparing your floor to make it level, flat and smooth.
Once the sub-floor is ready a moisture resistant and insulating underlay is fitted included in our fitting. The floor covering is then cut and fitted to your design.
We have been fitting floors for many years at a reasonable cost. For laminate and engineered flooring we charge £9.00 per metre squared for cutting and fitting including underlay.
There are also additional charges for removal and disposal of existing flooring, self-levelling (if required), fitting scotia and door bars as well as fitting new architraves and skirting.
Solid wood floor fitting is more involved. The floor may need to be fixed with an adhesive or nailed on joists. This is finished with oils, stains and resins for a gloss, satin or matt finish. Our prices for these are dependent on which method of fixing and finishing is best for your home and requirements. We will advise you of this at the time of survey and so are not able to give a price here.
This is the hardest of wearing and suitable for wet and semi-wet areas of the house such as hallways, utility rooms, bathrooms and kitchens. Tiled floors are easy to clean, come in a range of styles and materials and can be laid in a number of patterns.
With our help our customers choose the style and make of tiles they prefer for their tiled floor. We then prepare the sub-floor, cut and fit the tiles and finish with grout. Our charges vary for this depending on the style, size, pattern and type of tile chosen by our customer. Natural stone tiles require much more preparation prior to laying and normally need finishing with a sealant so cost more than ceramic tiles which already have a surface finish.
We also fit vinyl and karndean flooring.
