Eddy is a seasoned professional when it comes to floor fitting, he has worked in the industry for almost 30 years and can fit all types of floor coverings. Eddy specializes in fitting our ever popular FMF signature staircase with laminate on the risers, which gives you a unique and stunning finish. Eddy is a perfectionist when it comes to his work, which he carries out to the highest of standards. This is evident from the hundreds of fantastic reviews he has received and the excellent reputation he holds in the area. Eddy alongside Steve will be carrying out all of the fitting services for FIT MY FLOOR and we are very pleased to be working with him.
Steve has been a floor fitter for 10 years now and over that time he has mastered his trade and is able to fit all types of floor coverings to the highest standard. Steve is also an expert in sub floor preparation; he is our ‘got-to’ man for any screeding/ levelling jobs. He also specializes in fitting Luxury Vinyl Tiles, which he can lay: traditionally, parquet, bordered and many other custom designs. Like the FMF shop, the fitting team is also a family business as Steve is Eddy’s nephew, and the both of them work extremely well together. The addition of Steve to the team means FMF are able to offer shorter wait times for fitting and we can complete the work in half the time – meaning less disruption to your household during the fitting of your new floor coverings.
