Review Comments
Our hall and living room floors needed attention after adding an extension to the house. The existing Junckers boards were laid 20 years ago when we first moved in so they'd had a lot of wear. Richard confidently explained the approach he would take to extend the floor into the new part of the house. This required him to remove sections of the existing floor and fit new Junckers boards into the extended area. To complete the look Richard and his team sanded the new and existing boards in the hall along with the living room. The work is of fantastic quality. I would honestly say the 20 year old floor looks better now than when it was first installed. The new and old boards have been blended together seemlessly, the results really are exceptional. There was no mess whatsoever. Hard working and professional throughout, we are very happy to recommend and definitely would use again.

We used Richard and his team to sand back our oak floorboards following a flood. They were quick to reply to our enquiry and were reasonably priced. Richard and his team arrived on time, were polite and worked hard to get the job done. The finish is beyond what we could have hoped for. Honest and reliable I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family.

Richard fitted new flooring throughout our open plan kitchen/living room in herringbone style. The finished room looks fantastic! Richard has been really helpful throughout, from the initial meeting suggesting different flooring options and price points to fitting in with our timescales for work we were having done to the kitchen separately. The job took a little longer than expected but Richard worked extra hours to accommodate and it has been finished to a really high standard. We're really happy with the floor and would definitely recommend

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.
