Richard and his assistant did a fantastic job sanding and varnishing my lounge floor. They arrived promptly, they were clean and tidy and they finished earlier than expected. I would highly recommend.

Review Comments
Richard and Scott did a great job for us when installing new engineered wood flooring in our hall and living room. In addition to installing the flooring they also prepared our existing floor to ensure it was level, removing old skirting boards and replacing them with new throughout.

Richard was really helpful during the process and the agreed price was reasonable. We found the team were totally professional, always arrived at agreed time and dates, working to the timeline and most important left our house spotless and looking great on completion. The new flooring really looks and feels tremendous - we highly recommend Richard Barrett Flooring to anyone.

Cheers
Phil and Gillian

Richard & RB flooring installed a new engineered wood floor in our hallway and living room and I can't commend him highly enough. They were flexible, courteous and did an absolutely superb job. We are delighted with our new floor and am sure it will last many years. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of our friends and family.

Richard and Scott did a brilliant job installing new engineered wood flooring in my flat. Richard was incredibly helpful throughout the process and costs were very reasonable with no hidden extras. The team were professional, always arrived on time, worked efficiently and left my flat and the stairwell spotless after the work was completed. The new floors look amazing - I would highly recommend Richard Barrett Flooring.

Richard and his team did an amazing job on our previously untreated wooden floors. They started a day early, always cleaned up after themselves and were great at advising on the logistics of furniture moving. As well as sanding, they repaired and replaced several areas of flooring which have turned out much better than expected. We couldn't be happier with how the floors have turned out. Would recommend.

Have used Richard and his team twice now; once to refurbish an old oak panelled floor, and again recently to install a herringbone oak flooring.
The guys were helpful, easy to work with and had pride in their work - makes it easy to decide to use them again.
No mess was left, and the job looks perfect (see attached photo)

No changes in prices / hidden costs like a lot of previous trades we have used.

Richard and the team did a fantastic job. My floors we certainly 'dated' and were in need of a lot of repair. The outcome looked incredible. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use again.

We hired Richard and his team to fully sand and varnish the floors in our flat. Not only was the job finished to an impeccable standard, the floors are like new, but we also amended the job twice, adding both a hallway and extra room after booking the job.

Richard was responsive and accommodating through the entire process and had no problem squeezing in the extra work during his time working on our property, which made the world of difference.

The work itself was finished in the promised time, and our flat was left in a neat and tidy condition. Overall Richard and his team went above and beyond our expectations, and we absolutely intend to book their services in the near future for further rooms we'd like to have done.

Got keys to our new house and wanted work done on the floors, a few rooms sanded and our main hall with parquet. We had a few people out to look around and give us a quote, Richard not only came across as most knowledgeable but also at a great price. The amount of 5 star reviews online was also very reassuring.

The work carried out by Richard and his team was exceptional, we could not have asked for any better. Such nice and friendly people. The sanded floors look tremendous and the parquet is out of this world, worth every penny. No mess at all after the work. We are going to get our upstairs sanded in future and we will 100% be using Richard and his team to do that work for us, we could not have asked for any better.

Cannot recommend Richard Barrett Flooring highly enough.

Richard and his team sanded and finished our flooring in the living room, hallway and bathroom. He was quick to provide a reasonable quote for the work as well as a start date. He and his team arrived on time, keep in communication throughout and completed the work in the timescale given. The standard of the work carried out over a 2 day period was exceptional, leaving the property in a clean condition. I couldn't recommend Richard and his team more.

Had new wood flooring laid in 3 rooms, and existing wood floors renovated in another 2 rooms.
Good communication and left rooms clean & tidy. Result was exactly as expected and have no hesitation in recommending.

We have used Richard twice now and each time he has exceeded out expectations. We had our 100 year old pine floorboards sanded and stained in a period flat and they looked incredible and was good value for money for the improvement it had on the flat. recently Richard has laid a new parquet floor in our house and the results are stunning.

He turns up early and gets the job the done and leaves the property clean and thoroughly improved. If you are looking for a flooring expert, look no further and just use Richard. I will recommend him to all friends and family due to the brilliant and reliable service.

We had our hall and lounge floors sanded. Richard came out promptly to quote and we were delighted when he agreed to fit us in before Christmas. Scott was both reliable and personable and advised us on the right colour of stain that suited the rooms. After the work was completed, Richard then contacted us to make sure that we were happy with the end product. We are thrilled! My only regret is not getting the work sooner. I would highly recommend Richard Barrett flooring.

Nick and Richard did a great job in resanding and varnishing Victorian pine boards in sitting room and mending, securing and sand and varnish original boards in the hall. Both floors look great and I was impressed with the repair work as it has exceeded my expectations. Work was done on schedule and rooms left v clean. Would recommend and use again with no hesitation.
