A solid foundation
Richard James Wooden Floors is owned by us, Richard and James. You’ll be advised by us, have your survey and specifications taken by us and Laminate floors fitted by us. No outsourcing or sub-contracting. Just quality workmanship from two professionals who have been working together seamlessly as a team for 20 years.
Between us we’ve fitted so many floors that we’re not fazed by any project. Awkward shapes, tricky staircases, large floor spaces – we’ve successfully installed them all.
We don’t cut corners
Well technically, we do. But only in the professional sense.
Our attention to detail and thorough approach is second to none – essential when it comes to building wooden floors that not only look beautiful, but are built to last.
Before we do anything, we’ll visit your property for a survey where we’ll fully measure up, check the condition of the sub-floor, anticipate any challenges and provide a quotation for the work.
Then comes the preparation. The stage where you do not want to cut corners. Achieving as flat a surface as possible, ready for installation.
And finally, once we’ve laid your beautiful floor, come the finishing touches. Cutting those tricky corners. Fitting the Laminate floor expertly under door frames. Trimming and reinstalling doors. Finishing the skirting boards. Paying close attention to the practical details that will keep your floor looking gorgeous.
“Richard saved our bacon and re-laid our quickstep floor, which was originally installed by a relative, who despite working in the building trade and being a highly competent DIYer had not done the job to a professional finish and had not cut in under the door frames. Don’t risk messing up the install of expensive flooring like I did, call Richard and have it done professionally.”

We are solid wooden and laminate flooring fitters expert in London, Kent and Surrey. Below are a few examples of our work.
Quickstep Elite - Staircase Installation
The stairs have been clad with Quickstep laminate using their Incizo bar and Stairbase system. The method employed for this is called templating which we were able to implement precisely on all of the kites and winders (these are the kite-shaped and triangular steps which allow staircases to turn corners).
Quickstep Arte Tiles and Lamett Cuba Cotton White Oak
Quickstep Arte Tiles offer a long lasting and hardwearing floor. The main benefit is the look of a natural stone floor without it being as cold or hard under foot as that would be.
The tiles were fitted in the games room which opened onto decking.
Natural Oak semi-solid flooring - the finishing touch to a home renovation.
For this project, the customers were unable to have the skirting boards removed, due to the age of the house and fragility of the plaster work. No problem. We were able to undercut the skirting boards and install the flooring with the skirting remaining in situ…
