Carpet and flooring fitting


The key to professional flooring is the preparation. At Porters, we’ve spent decades learning our trade and have seen almost every flooring problem there is and, therefore, know how to solve it and more importantly, prevent it.

On new-builds, extensions and older properties, it’s essential that damp testing is carried out, otherwise, investment in new floor coverings can be a waste of money.

To achieve a perfectly smooth surface for each type of flooring, it’s important to know what the appropriate base needs to be. For some flooring materials, screeding is required and on other surfaces, over-boarding might be the best option.

Porters can instantly identify the best solution for every surface and provide the expertise to prepare your floors to the highest standard.
