Nathan fitted carpet and vinyl in several rooms in my mum's house. We were happy with the job and will consider him for future tasks.

Carpet fitter or experienced handyman needed


Fais was fantastic from start to finish. He did a brilliant job cutting, fitting and painting skirting boards throughout our whole flat, with excellent communication throughout. He was really friendly, and finished it all to a great standard (despite all the problems an old building threw his way) and stayed late to get everything completed and cleared up. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Top Flooring related questions

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant flooring services licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

Aside from the size of your room or house, it also depends on the flooring type. Vinyl flooring is the least intensive and the quickest flooring to install, which can only take at least five hours. Laminate flooring can take a day, then two days for carpeting.

Hardwood floor installation can be labour intensive and can take days to weeks. It's important to remember that floor installation also includes acclimation and finishing.

It depends on the foot traffic and how often you maintain your flooring. With proper upkeep, hardwood and tile flooring can last years. You can get 50 years out of your vinyl flooring, while your carpet and vinyl flooring can last up to 10-20 years. It's vital to clean and take care of your flooring regularly so you can maximise their benefits and reduce the need for floor replacements.

It depends on your needs and where you're planning to install your flooring. You might want to consider durable options like ceramic, laminate, or plank vinyl, especially if you have any pets and little kids. If you'd like to install new floors for your kitchen or bathroom, you also need to consider flooring that is good for high- or medium-moisture environments, such as vinyl or ceramic, or concrete. 

Ceramic tiles are popular for their durability and versatility. They're also an ideal option for bathrooms, kitchens, entryways, and laundry rooms. Hardwood is another well-loved option because of its ability to transform any space aesthetically in an instant.

Since hardwood is a bit pricey, others opt to use laminate flooring as it can mimic any hardwood style. Carpet flooring's warmth and softness is also a popular choice for bedrooms. Lastly, vinyl is popular for high-traffic areas because it's durable and moisture-resistant.

This decision depends on your preferences and your existing home decor. You can choose to use the same flooring to create a more cohesive look or different ones for practicality. When you do the latter, make sure to do it at existing barriers like walls and dividers. The most important thing is to match your flooring with the existing patterns, colours, and materials you have in your home.

The average cost of flooring services varies depending on factors such as the type of flooring chosen, the size of the area, and the complexity of the installation. On average, you can expect to pay between £20 to £50 per square meter for professional flooring services. This range encompasses a variety of flooring options, including laminate, vinyl, hardwood, and carpet. Additional costs may apply for preparation work, removal of old flooring, and any customization or intricate patterns.

What do flooring services include?

Professional flooring installation means more than just a floor that looks good. Your flooring contractor will make sure your floors are safe, slip-free, and will last decades by using the best preparation and installation methods. Some popular flooring options include: Concrete flooring Concrete floors are becoming more popular for their durability - not just in garages and sheds, but inside the home, as well.

Concrete Floors

A concrete flooring professional can install new concrete floors, or change the look of your existing floors with concrete polishing and epoxy coatings to add colour and texture to your floor. Depending on what you need done, they may work with concrete, a mixer, a grinder, and floor polish or epoxy to protect and seal the floor.


When installing carpets, you’ll first need the old carpet removed. Carpet removal can be a dusty, heavy job, so your carpet specialist will use crowbars to lift the carpet and knives to cut the carpet into sections. They’ll wear durable gloves to protect their hands when they lift and roll the carpet. If the insulation or underfelt is in good condition, you may be able to lay the new carpet directly on top. Your contractor will measure out the right size for your new carpet, before cutting it out and rolling it in place. They’ll use a knee kicker to push the carpet firmly into the edges and corners of your room, trimming the excess carpet.


While timber floorboards might be a higher maintenance option, floating floors come with many benefits, with a huge range of styles. And they’re relatively easy to repair if one board gets chipped or damaged. Your flooring contractor can advise you on environmentally friendly options, such as bamboo and cork floorboards, as well. Floorboard installation starts with clearing the area before wooden struts are positioned to create a framework for the boards to sit on. At this point, you can choose to install soundproof insulation under your bamboo floorboards or timber floorboards to help reduce noise. Then your contractor will install your timber floorboards over the wooden struts. Once your new floor is installed, you can keep it looking it’s best with regular polishing and refinishing.

Tiled floors

Tiles are popular for bathroom flooring, or throughout the whole house for easy cleaning. Tile floor installation involves laying marble, stone, or ceramic tiles on the floor. When installing tiles, your flooring professional will usually first remove the existing flooring. This may require tools such as a jackhammer or a chisel and hammer to break up and lift the old tiles. Then they’ll prepare the area with adhesives and concrete, before laying the tiles. Once the adhesive has set, your tiler will apply grout in the gaps between each tile, creating a waterproof surface.

Laminate, vinyl & linoleum flooring

Getting your vinyl, linoleum, or laminate floors professionally installed usually starts with removing any old floor coverings and skirting boards. Laminate flooring is usually easy to remove but may require chemical solvents, depending on the adhesives used. Once the area is cleared, the floors will be levelled and prepared with any underlay and insulation required. At this stage, your flooring contractor may add in things like waterproofing or underfloor heating. Your flooring contractor %location% will use their tools to lay the floor, usually working from the corner furthest from the door, making sure the area is level, square, and plumb as they go.

Cut length off of 1 internal door and 4 kitchen panels


Mitcham, Greater London

18th Sep 2023

I've had different flooring put down (from laminate to carpet in the bedroom and thicker tiles in the kitchen) so now the bedroom door is too long to open and shut smoothly without digging into the carpet. And in the kitchen the side end panel is too long to fit under the countertop, and 3 under cupboard panels are too long to fit between under the lower cupboards and the floor. So I need someone to cut in total 5 things shorter in length so they fit nicely. I don't have any tools to help be able to do this. I'm available this Friday afternoon, the weekend or any day during evening time. It's in a ground floor flat and there's unrestricted street parking immediately outside the property.
