We’ll arrange fitting

Just sit back, relax and let our professional fitting partners install your new flooring.

Carpet fitting & vinyl flooring installation, is a job best left to the experts. We have a little black book of professional fitters throughout the UK, and we trust them to fit your carpet or flooring quickly, efficiently, and perfectly. They’ll also take away your offcuts and give your new flooring a vacuum so it’s ready for you to enjoy straight away. Of course, you’re more than welcome to use your own carpet or flooring fitter – the choice is yours! At SNB Carpets, a quote for new flooring is completely tailored to you so you only pay for the services you need.

How much does fitting cost?

Our fitting costs vary depending on the size of your room, where the floor is to be laid and the flooring type being installed. Prices start from £3.50 per square metre for carpet. As we use independent fitters, the cost for fitting is payable directly to the fitter on the day of installation.

Take a look at the table below for some indicative costs by room size.

The costs include a small admin fee for arranging the fitting with our professional fitting partners. Minimum charges apply, as do supplements in some locations (e.g. London) and for complex fitting (e.g. herringbone, stairs). Ask one of our colleagues to provide you with a tailored estimate based on your requirements.

How it works

Our flooring experts will ask if you need your new flooring fitted when they are putting together a full quote. If the answer is yes, you’ll receive a very excited email from us when your new flooring has arrived, asking you to give us a call to arrange a convenient fitting date. You’ll then receive a confirmation email with your fitting date, and the countdown to the floor of your dreams has begun!

What can I expect on the day?

The day before installation we’ll send an email reminding you that your new flooring is going to be fitted tomorrow – as if you’d forgotten! A friendly fitter will arrive at the allotted time, which will be confirmed the day before, leaving you to relax while we take care of everything.

What fitting services do you offer?

Our fitting partners offer a huge array of additional services to help you get the perfect fit. From fitting your new carpet or flooring with underlay and accessories, to uplifting and removing your old flooring, SNB Carpets can offer you a quote and arrange for a fitter to carry out these works for you. At SNB Carpets – no mountain is too high! Just ask for these services at the time of ordering.

  • Fitting Whatever flooring you’ve chosen, be it carpet, vinyl, laminate, or LVT, our fitters have the skills and experience to get a perfect fit. They’ll also lay underlay and accessories like door bars, grippers, or stair rods. Fitting a new carpet can be done in as quickly as 30 minutes! Now that’s speedy!
  • Uplift & Removal Before your gorgeous new carpet or flooring can be fitted, your old floor needs to be removed. It’s a messy and pretty dusty job but our fitting partners are happy to get stuck in! We charge £4.50 per square metre for uplift and disposal, a small price to pay for stress-free installation.
  • Doors off we will take doors off it the carpet is too thick to go under the door, but we don’t provide a service to put them back on. However we work with a third party company who can provide this service for you, depending on a availability.
  • Subfloor preparation A perfect new floor needs a smooth, solid foundation. From installing a DPM (damp proof membrane) to preparing your subfloor with ply board, screed or a latex smoothing compound, our fitting partners can get your subfloor ready for your new floor. We’ll assess the condition of your subfloor when we visit your house to measure up and let you know if any work needs doing.
  • But it isn’t always possible to inspect what’s underneath your current floor sufficiently enough to diagnose where some preparation work is needed prior to your new flooring being laid. If our fitting partners are installing your new floor and they do find that what’s underneath your existing floor needs work to make it right, in the majority of cases, they can help you resolve the problem. But there may be rare occasions where they advise you to bring in the services of a specialist contractor. Uneven floorboards, if left uncorrected, can adversely affect the appearance of your new flooring.
  • Door easing There are times when your doors may need some height adjustment easing. For example, if you go from a smooth floor to a thick, luxury carpet. At SNB Carpets, we do our best to help and some, but not all, of our fitting partners, can trim standard doors. However, fire, glass, panelled, hollow and chain doors would be best left to specialist carpenters. Let us know the type of doors you have so we can help with the best solution. Some of our showrooms can recommend local carpenters that are on hand to help too.

Let us go forward in this battle fortified by conviction that those who labour in the service of a great and good cause will never fail.
