Laminate flooring is a synthetic floor covering that has been designed to look like wood flooring or sometimes stone flooring. It has been a popular choice with DIY enthusiasts for decades. Traditionally it offered a cheaper alternative to real wood. We source our Laminate flooring from brands such as: Quickstep, Kronospan, lifestyle and many more!
Engineered hardwood flooring stands as a more than viable alternative to solid hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood floors are made up of a top layer of a real hardwood species and a core, typically consisting of multiple plywood layers laminated together to form a durable plank, or in some cases HDF (high density fiberboard). We source our Engineered wood flooring from brands such as: Kahrs, Boen, Grabbo and many more!
Solid wood flooring is just what its name suggests, wood flooring that is made from solid wood. No matter what species or grade of wood you can think of. This product is not as popular as Laminate and engineered wood flooring solely because it is more expensive; however once down, it is a very aesthetically pleasing product.
Parquet flooring is a type of wood flooring made from small blocks or strips of wood which are laid to create a regular and geometric pattern. Nowadays, the herringbone pattern is arguably the most popular choice for anyone installing parquet flooring.
Carpet tiles can transform commercial spaces, such as offices, showrooms, and various other areas. The benefits of using this type of product allows for less wastage as it can be measured in net areas (to keep your costs down!) and can be mixed and match to create some quite unique patterns. We source our carpet tiles from brands such as: Interfloor, JHS, Forbo, Marlings and many more!
The Durafit System dramatically increases the dimensional stability of the carpet by the added weight and horizontal rigidity engineered when both a carpet and an underlay are combined. Therefore, an installation which offers the under-foot comfort and added wear protection of stretch fitting and the stability of direct adhesion is the ideal solution to commercial carpet installation problems. This type of installation can be fitted with a wide range of carpet designs.
This method of fitting is the most common when installing carpets and is certainly the most popular for a large portion of works that we carry out. It consists of pinning down gripper to the perimeter of a room and laying underlay within same area. Carpet is then cut to shape and stretched into position to create a smooth finish.
Body & Border
Body and border is commonly used within communal areas where the body carpet covers most of the area and a 25cm (varies due to preference) border is then joined around the perimeter of the body. The two pieces of carpet will have either a different colour or pattern to give the effect of having a unique style around the edge of your carpet.
Again, this method of installation is used within communal areas for the most part; usually necessary if there are concrete sub-floors which will allow for our operatives to stick the carpet directly to the subfloor using the correct adhesive. Stick down carpets tend to be very hard-wearing and hence are great for areas with high foot traffic.
LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles)
LVT offers 3D printing technology which adds depth and realism, durability, with a high-performance wear layer to a vinyl tile product. With a wide range of design choices, LVT can replicate the look of natural hard flooring such as stone or wood without the maintenance expenses associated with either. It can also be laid in different styles and patterns entirely down to the customers preference.
This is a type of vinyl designed to ensure a high level of safety and is used in areas where there is a high slip risk. Wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens are a prime example of where you would have a high risk of spillages and hence where safety vinyl would be the ideal lay. All types of safety flooring come in 2m widths and are welded together with a colour matching weld where necessary by our qualified professionals. We source our safety vinyl from manufacturers such as Forbo, Faithfulls, Tarkett and many more!

Rubber flooring can be made from materials which are often recycled from vehicle tires. These materials allow for an extremely durable and low-maintenance surface option for home and business owners. Rubber flooring also provides plenty of choices when it comes to how to install it in your room. From interlocking tiles, sheets to square edge tiles, this surface allows for multiple application methods that will work best for the dimensions and space you’re working with. Rubber is also a material that’s extremely slip resistant, and its smooth resiliency can be taken advantage of for areas of your home that endure the most traffic. We source our rubber flooring from companies such as Gerflor, Jaymart and many more!
Interlocking vinyl tiles were designed for commercial or industrial applications in both new buildings and renovation projects, this type of vinyl tile can deliver superior value while saving time and money. The design of the interlocking system makes it even easier to install than some wood click systems and will leave you with a long-lasting performance delivered in two practical formats. Allowing for higher resistance to scratches and stains this durable product is made with a protection layer much like the LVT.
Latex & Levelling Systems
We offer all types of self-levelling systems from a 3mm coat of latex to smooth out any imperfections all the way to rebuilding floors up to the level necessary to install the new flooring, whatever the specification. We can also cover up, uplift, and dispose of any previous flooring where necessary. With materials applicable to cover any type of subfloor there will be nothing in the way of creating a wonderful finish to any area. We source our levelling products from companies such as Ardex, F.Ball, Levelit and many more!
Our qualified professionals can provide quality floor surveys prior to any installation or quotation. We can assess the subfloor and determine what necessary preparation will be required, depending on the type of flooring which has been selected. Another benefit of having our survey is that we also provide a free of charge service to measure any area which is required for flooring.
Moisture is not something that we get along with in the flooring trade, from causing wood to expand to creating stains on carpets. Consequent to the problems that can arouse when flooring and water meet, we do not hesitate to ensure that we have a dry subfloor before installing any type of flooring. Our team can provide moisture tests using our trusted moisture reader and determine whether it is acceptable to lay the flooring.
With brand new flooring throughout your household, the last think you want is for someone to trapes external debris all over the house.
In order to avoid situations such as this we can provide matwells to any necessary area. With a wide variety of choices and colours you are sure to be able to match your matwell with whatever flooring is in your property.
Here at JC Flooring, we believe the little things make a big difference when it comes to putting the final touches to any job.

We have a specialist team of operatives who can measure and recommend the necessary nosings for any stair following a quick and easy inspection.
