As part of my ongoing search for builders and such like to restore my flat to its former (pre-fire) glory, does anyone have any recommendations for someone to lay engineered laminate flooring and soundproof underlay (preferably before Christmas)?

The utterly efficient Drum Property Refurbishments are coming to have a look tomorrow, and I've contacted a few people from the old threads on this (circa 2002 !) but I'd be grateful for any other ideas.

The small carpet shop at the bottom of TBR. They used to be in Southwark Park Rd and laid my laminate (& underlay) about 6 years ago & did an excellent job. They are very reasonably priced too.

Get some proper wood flooring put down instead, Siduhe. Try LASSCO - who sell new flooring as well as salvaged.

Actually, agree with Mapmaker, a certain prejudice has built up against laminate over the past 18 months, so if was having my floor done now would choose proper wood. Shop on TBR does this too.

Birdie laid her own floor, and a very good job she did, too. I'm sure she'd do yours in exchange for a bacardi and coke (no ice).

Edited to delete gibberish but to say you do know you can get solid wood laminate, don't you? Is that what you mean by engineered laminate?

Solid wood laminate = a real bit of wood stuck to some plywood.

Otherwise, laminate = a photgraph of a bit of wood stuck to some plywood.
