Criterion flooring maybe wood floor specialists but they also do a beautiful job on carpets!

Many of the customers we deal with often need wood flooring fitted in large rooms downstairs and then separately fit carpet in upstairs rooms not realising that Criterion flooring also source and fit carpets, doors and skirting boards.

We deal with most of the big carpet manufacturers and are able to accommodate most tastes in terms of colours and patterns. We tend to only recommend the better quality carpets, which will last longer and are consequently better value in the longer term. Fitting the carpet properly is more important than you realise,

it needs to be safely and seamlessly secured and the pattern ie stripe or check should all line up and needs good quality underlay to make it soft and warm underfoot.We have completed projects recently in Berkhamsted, Tring, Ivinghoe, Pitstone, Chesham, Amersham and even fitted flooring in Big Brother house on more than one occasion!

So do give us a call to discuss your flooring needs whether it’s solid wood, engineered wood flooring or indeed carpet and we will be happy to help. Neil Smith-MD Criterion Flooring

My stairs had collapsed and having to jump the last 3 stairs was becoming a feat of athleticism beyond me on a monday morning!

Also I had guests from Australia staying at the weekend and I was seriously concerned about them falling ‘down under’ my rickety stairs and ending up in the basement!  

So, I asked Neil at Criterion Flooring in Tring, if he and his team could come and rebuild them, make it all safe, replace the old skirting board for new on the stairs and landing and lay new carpet on 2 lots of stairs and landing. Neil and his son Luke turned up as promised and spent all day repairing the stairs (so now there is not so much as a creak when you climb them) and have laid new skirting board and new balustrade and new checked carpet, which looks great!It’s a relief to have it all fixed and looking stylish (the checked pattern carpet works a treat!)

There were a few challenges arising during the process as you would expect…we realised we had to replace plug points to fit the new skirting board and we also asked Neil to replace mis-matching bathroom cupboard door and a radiator had to be removed and re fitted. All of which Neil and the Criterion flooring team were able to do, unperturbed they rang an electrician who dropped everything to come over and sort the plug points. Getting a plumber in time proved

more difficult so Neil sorted this himself meanwhile Luke created a ‘shaker style’ bathroom cupboard door out of MDF for us from scratch and fitted it complete with an elegant handle. The job was finished in 2 days including rebuilding the stairs and since we have waited a while to get the stairs repaired the difference has been astonishing. The carpet is so soft under foot and the check pattern looks great and was pretty good value for over 20sq metres. The underlay Neil used was much thicker than the previous underlay so it feels springy and substantial. Criterion Flooring seem to be very busy locally they had jobs in Berkhamsted, Wiggington and Chesham before us, so we had to book them in about a month ahead but they came when agreed, which is all you can ask really.

The Criterion Flooring team were friendly and efficient throughout, I was very impressed with the craftsmanship, attention to detail and work ethic of Neil and his team and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again or indeed recommend them to others. I know wood is Criterion floorings specialism but they do a great job of carpet fitting too”.    Dawn B- Tring
