Wood flooring installation and supply

At Bishops we pride ourselves on our solid wood flooring and engineered flooring installations. We have 45+ years of experience supplying and laying the finest, luxury hardwood floors.

Solid wood floors are full of character. The difference between oak, parquet, pine boards, mahogany, teak, maple and beech wood floors (to name but a few) provides variety beyond your imagination. With such variety we can install beautiful floors to suite every taste and purpose.

Engineered oak flooring is versatile and can be laid on top of most sub floors. Engineered flooring is also recommended for fitting on top of under floor heating.

We fit and refinish many types of wooden floors to the highest of standards at very competitive prices. Whether you are a home owner who wants to improve the look of your living room, a site manager wanting to update a well-worn school hall, or a commercial firm wanting new floors for a range of new properties, we can help. We are big enough to cope with your job but small enough to care.

As a result you can see some of the Google 5 star reviews that we have had here – Reviews.

We only use carefully selected timber from leading manufacturers, such as Kahrs, Original Timber and Junkers flooring, and sustainable sources because we care about our environmental impact.

Underlay plays an important role during the installation of new solid wood flooring. Whether we decide to nail down or float your flooring, an underlay offers a range of benefits during and after installation.

Underlay not only acts as a cushion for the flooring but it also provides a vapour barrier and a Dpm ( damp proof membrane ). This prevents moisture penetrating the wood from the  back of the boards.

An underlayment is therefore necessary for multiple reasons. Floating floors will expand and contract, moving ever so slightly as a whole unit. The smooth surface of the underlay allows the flooring on top of it to move slightly during seasonal humidity changes. Underlays are also are used under floating floors to act as a cushion, allowing for a bit of a softer feel when walking upon them.

Types of wood flooring

Hardwood flooring is a great way to add value to your home. And we have options to suit every homeowners taste and style. We are an authorized dealer of all the hardwood flooring brands you see on our site and will help you choose the perfect floor for your needs.

Click lock engineered wood flooring

As well as your more traditional tongue and groove flooring you can also get click lock engineered flooring. Click lock uses modern flooring technology that is offered by all the top flooring manufacturers in the industry today. From domestic hardwood flooring species, such as Oak or Beech to exotic hardwood floors like Walnut, Bamboo flooring or Cherry, homeowners can now find most types of wood species in an easy click lock system.

Click lock flooring installs quickly over an underlay and can be installed over most hard surfaced flooring or sub floors; including concrete without the need for staples/nails or adhesive.
