Gravetye Manor, East Sussex

The architect designed the interior layout to maximise covers, personal space and intimacy by creating  discrete sections with luxurious banquette seating enclosed by oak dwarf walls. A light maple acoustic ceiling keeps noise levels to a muted but buzzy level reflecting the serenity of the surroundings. The 200 year old reclaimed Versailles pattern oak floor perfectly befits the style of the Jacobean Manor and compliments the contemporary addition. The atmosphere is enhanced by innovative, subtle lighting remotely directed on to every table.

The floor has been much admired and commented on and we were very happy to work with David Bedding, of The British Wood Flooring Company, whom we personally selected for the quality of the product and efficiency of his company.

Parquet floor installation and refurbishment - West Clandon

It took a while for us to find a suitable contractor to refurbish the parquet floor of our 50s house and were fortunate to come across The British Wood Flooring Company. They are a truly professional operation. They assessed the job and provided detailed costings. The craftsmen who laid the floor were courteous, hardworking and cared about their work. Only when the project was completed to their high standards was it signed off. We have no hesitation in recommending this company

Reclaimed Pine floors - Marlow

The service we received from The British Wood Flooring Company excellent. Timely quotation and answering all the questions about the process. The work was done by a very professional team and the results are really great, very beautiful and authentic wooden floor in the extension matching the rest of our 1900 house. We are delighted with the results!

Pine floor refurbishment - Reading

Working with David has been a pleasure through and through. From our initial meeting to the final handover communication was smooth, professional and prompt. His team did great work and the minor deficiency I pointed out at handover was rectified on the same day. I left the guys with a key of the house and the property was left spotless at the end of the work.

Edwardian Oak floor refurbishment

David and his team were utterly professional, delivering a first rate service from start to finish. Martin and Dan were punctual, polite, courteous and extremely hard working. We were very surprised with how little ‘mess’ was made when our floor boards were sanded back and are delighted with the end result, which looks fresh without looking too ‘new’.

Reclaimed oak floor installed - Cambridge

We have been systematically refurbishing our sixteenth century oak beamed cottage. The final act has been to replace the existing entrance hall floor which had vinyl tiles with a reclaimed oak floor. David’s team did a brilliant job of supplying and installing natural finish boards. Visually its opened up the hall so it looks larger and lighter. The craftsmen were outstanding and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend the company to anyone.

Reclaimed Pine floors installed and finished

I can’t recommend David and his team highly enough.
Professional, highly knowledgeable and a pleasure to have in your home.
First we had our original floorboards treated and then we had reclaimed floorboards fitted to the new extension – you would never know they hadn’t all been down for over a 100 years – stunning!
Great to find true craftsmen who really love their work.

Reclaimed Oak floor to Isle of Wight Cottage

We contracted British Wood Flooring to remove our existing kitchen floor and install an ‘aged’ oak floor with a Jacobean stain. Our experience of this company was delightful from the initial consultations through the selection and timing of the work to the experienced installers and the after care.

They have a wide selection of products and were most helpful in advising on the choice of our floor. The installers were timely, efficient and friendly and produced outstanding results that exceeded our expectations.

I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

American White Oak refurbishment

My floors were in a real state after years of wear, downstairs had two completely different wooden floors. I had my old oak floors sanded down and oiled and my very worn engineered wooden floor sanded down and stained to match the original floor. The effect has transformed downstairs, and I wish I had done it years ago.

Martin came up the week before and gave me four finishes to choose from. Moving all the furniture from such a large space was quite an upheaval but worth it. The service was polite and efficient and I plan to use them again when I need a new bit of flooring to match my old flooring in an extension.

Pine floor restoration

The following is an honest review of the great British flooring company.

Having spent the past few months renovating a property I have come into contact with many tradesmen. David and his team are extremely helpful and were by far my favourite to work with.

We had a number of consultations (mostly at anti-social hours due to work commitments) and David was happy to accommodate this. We opted to have the existing floor in our Victorian cottage restored.

Unfortunately this wasn’t a straight forward job and required many of the boards to be replaced. Looking at the floor now it is nearly impossible to tell which the original boards are.

The floor is stunning and I would highly recommend this company.

Reclaimed Parquet floor

Our builder found the British Wood Flooring Company online and contacted them after reading the reviews left online. David the director of the company visited our house to take a look at our work needed and the reclaimed parquet we have brought.

Once a visited was carried out, I received an quotation for the work. I paid half of of the quotation required and the remaining was to be paid on completion of the work carried out.

Once we agreed a date date for work to start, I received a review of what work would be done, how many days needed to complete the work. This helped me as we had to put our cat into a cat home for 4 days while the sanding and lacquering park of the job was done.

Herringbone Parquet floors

Excellent job thank you. We recently installed herringbone parquet throughout the downstairs of our house and gave David quite a tough brief as we wanted the floor to look original.

David was great at advising us during the design stage especially when we were being indecisive on colour. Seeing the tailor-made samples really helped.

I have to say the floor looks better than we could have imagined and we are really pleased with the results. Their fitter was polite, punctual, hard-working and clean but more importantly he had great attention to detail.

Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

Reclaimed Oak floorboards

The British Wood Flooring Company installed French reclaimed oak floors over ply sub-floors on the first and second floors in our quirky uneven 17th Century fisherman’s cottage. They also did the two flights of stairs. The floors look as if they belong here. They display the figuring and character of slow growth timber to very handsome effect.

As you can imagine this might cause some upheaval but Martin was an impeccably tidy and considerate workman to say nothing about his skill and ingenuity in overcoming all the peculiarities of the building.

If you need a first class result, a unique floor and a great team to do it, you should consider The British Wood Flooring Company

Reclaimed Oak floors

The British Wood Flooring Company transformed our first and second floors from an older, deteriorating pine to French reclaimed oak with new sub flooring. As you can see, the result is superb.

This company provides an excellent product and has an exceptional work ethic. Frequent communication from David Bedding and craftsman execution by Martin made for an excellent experience. I would highly recommend this company.

Antique Oak Floor

The British Wood Flooring Company installed their Antique oak floorboards on the ground floor of our 17th Century Cotswold cottage. They did a superb job and the floor looks as though it has always been there. The workmen were meticulous and liaised well with the other builders to ensure that the work programme went smoothly and efficiently. We have now asked the company to renovate the wooden floors on the first floor as well.

Every one who sees the floor comments on how wonderful it looks and one friend has already commissioned them to do his house too.

Herringbone Parquet floor from reclaimed stocks

May I take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done! Your attention to my early requests for information was timely and utterly customer focussed, the site visit and follow-on quotation made all our lives so much easier (Insurers, building contractor & client).

The team that did the installation and finishing work of our reclaimed 19th Century oak parquet floor (Cut from full lengths of oak), were a pleasure to work with, knowledgeable, cheerful, and above all else very competent at their trade, true craftsmen. We love the finished product and wholeheartedly recommend the British Wood Flooring Company to any potential customers.

Reclaimed Oak floor & refurbishment

The team at The British Wood Flooring Company laid a reclaimed oak floor in our kitchen, and sanded, oiled and restored an old wooden floor in the hall, dining room and sitting room. They gave us exceptional service from a lengthy and detailed design and planning process through to a quick, clean and efficient working phase. They were clear about budget and timescale and kept to both. They were working with a very old floor which needed specialist knowledge which they clearly had.

Reclaimed Oak floors

The process of discussing products and finishes was very helpful and the sample panel gave us a very accurate idea of the finished product. When it came to fitting the workmen were charming, industrious and watching the floors being laid and finished was fascinating.

The end result is a modern engineered floor with underfloor heating but with an authentic and historic appearance as a result of the reclaimed boards used. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending The British Wood Flooring Company and look forward to enjoying these wonderful floors for many years to come.

In our Georgian house, The British Wood Flooring Company gave us new floors. The result has surpassed our expectations, transforming the house in both look and feel.

The greatest compliment of all is that people think the floors are original. From start to finish their service has been first-rate – clear, detailed, responsive to concerns, friendly and efficient. We cannot recommend them too highly.
