THE HISTORY OF BARNARD FLOORING

After leaving school in 1990 I served a 2 year YTS apprenticeship with a local flooring company. I gained much of my hands on experience and qualifications during this time achieving my NVQ's for Retail sales and customer service levels 1 & 2, this gave me the foundations that I have built on over the following years. Once I completed this apprenticeship I trained for several years to become a qualified carpet/flooring fitter.

Wanting to gain experience in all aspects of the flooring trade I then went on to add to my product and customer service knowledge by joining a large retail company where I started as a sales person working my way up to superstore manager.

After several years as a superstore manager I became a little disheartened by the lack of personal customer care that I was able to give, so Emma and I decided in 2005 that Barnard Flooring would be born.

Our small family business was started with an old van and the help of friends spreading the word the dream of starting our business became reality! 18 years on the foundations on which we built our business still stand, great customer service, quality of work, knowledge and amazing products at very competitive prices.

I used Barnard Flooring in November to lay a new cork floor throughout the downstairs lounge and kitchen. They are a small, organised company who are professional and friendly. The finish was of a high standard and they were clean and tidy. Would recommend.

We used Paul to fit oak engineered flooring to our hallway and living/dining room. He came round to initially quote and we found him to be extremely professional and personable. He gave some really good advice and was very knowledgeble. He sent his quote very quickly and we were more than happy to book his services. The floor was installed to a very high standard and we are absolutely delighted with it. We would not hesitate to recommend Paul and his team. A fantastic job and brilliant service. Thank you Paul.

Paul gave us good advice regarding fitting oak flooring to our dining area and carpet to lounge, and then arrived as planned with his colleague Ben and together they have done a great job and have left the place clean and tidy. I would not hesitate in recommending Paul or using him again. Competitively priced and excellent workmanship
