Choose Our Five Star Rated Floor Fitting Service!

Floor fitting by First Floors

Here at First Floors, our service doesn’t end once we have delivered your flooring.

We also offer a floor fitting service, which you’re under no obligation to use when ordering flooring through us. We use four highly skilled professional fitters who we have worked with for several years – so we know that we can trust them to go into our customers homes, be respectful and offer a first class fitting service. Each of them has their own skill set and we will match your job with the best fitter. And because we have four fitters, we can often get your floor fitting booked in within a few days of delivery. Just remember, with solid wood flooring we advise that the flooring sits in your home to acclimatise – we recommend leaving your floor for at least 3 days up to a week prior to laying it to avoid any expansion issues in the future. Our floor fitting service is rated five stars by our customers.

Choosing your new floor

When choosing the perfect floor for your home there are many factors to take into consideration.

Firstly, we have to choose what kind of flooring we would like. Many customers today are opting for either a solid wood floor, or an engineered floor. Really, you cannot tell the difference between and engineered and a solid wood board. A solid wood board is exactly what it says, a piece of solid wood. An engineered board is made up of three layers of plywood with a veneer of wood on the top. An engineered board tends to be more solid due to the construction of it. There will be less movement compared with a solid piece and it is ideal for basements and conservatories where humidity may be an issue. Ok, we have now chosen what kind of floor we would like. Here comes the sometimes tricky part. What finish and colour would we like. This is a big decision because once the floor is in place, you have to live with it. At First Floors on Fenwick Road in Giffnock, we will guide you through all the processes and ultimately you will leave with the ideal product for your home. No floor fitting or supply job is too big or too small and we value all our customers. Now we are going to talk about the various finishes of your floor. A UV oiled penetrates the wood and will bring out the grain and its beauty. On average each  board is given 5 – 7 coatings. With a finish like this, small scratches etc can be simply touched up without major upheaval. Now if this is not to your taste then a UV lacquered board could be the one for you. This type of board is given the same layering process of an oiled board, but will have a very smooth surface. It really depends on your taste. It is an easily maintained board and hardwearing. This board, which comes in both engineered and solid, will have a glossier finish which to some customers is exactly what they want. A matt lacquered finish will give the look of an oiled board without the sheen. A brushed finish means that the surface has been given a light brushing thus bringing out the natural grain. If you are looking for that more rustic look, then  a sawn board could be the perfect floor for you. Basically the saw marks are left on the surface giving it an extremely natural look.

Customer Reviews

Jim Hillier 1st June 2022

Absolutely Delighted with the Conduct and Quality of Work. My Wife and I decided to replace our Bedroom Carpet and lay down wooden flooring for our Hall. We noticed that there was a possible supplier for flooring at first floors shop on Fenwick Road. We met up with David and Graham and explained that we were looking for quality products for both Items. We were shown flooring possibilities from their extensive range of designs and thicknesses and soon found a product that we were interested in. We were delighted to find out that they had carpet selections at the back of the shop which surprised us; you could not appreciate the size of the place from the shop front! We chose a carpet that we thought met our specifications and were given a reasonable sized sample to take home to see how it would look in our room taking into account of our particular lighting conditions. First Floors sent out a guy to take measurements for floor, accessory fittings and carpet.
Being very happy with the proposition given to us and estimates of work completion dates and prices we went ahead with the order. Graham kept us updated with the schedule and I am happy to say that the work was carried out on time and was completed to a very high quality with which we were both delighted with.
I would be happy to reference this company for anyone who is interested in upgrading their floors or replacing carpets.

Alastair Barrie 2nd June 2022

Good selection, service and fitting.We were able to take home some samples to select the carpet that was just right for our room. There was a delay in our furniture arriving and First Floors were very accommodating in putting our fitting date back to suit. The fitting went very well indeed - couldn’t have been easier.

Olive Leitch 1st May 2022

Excellent service from First Floors. All staff including fitters have been helpful and gave a friendly professional service. My new stair carpet has been fitted very well and already received many complements

Linda McBrearty 27th April 2022

Excellent service with care. On our first visit to the showroom, David advised and helped us with our choice but never rushed us and gave us lots of confidence in making our final choice of engineered wooden flooring. Our new build home was delayed for a few months and during this time David and his team waited patiently with us until the flooring was able to be fitted! The fitting throughout our new house was more than excellent. The care and attention to detail was everything we could have hoped for, our thanks to the fitting team. We would have no hesitation in recommending First Floors, their professionalism and customer service was 100%.

Anna Smylie April 2021

Fantastic service. David gave me great advice on which flooring would be most suitable for my business premises. Within the week Steven came to fit the flooring and, as promised, was in and out in a day. Can’t recommend this local Company enough. Anna Smylie ZuZu Giffnock.

Dawn Henry November 2021

We recently purchased engineered oak flooring and carpets from First Floors. The customer service from David and team was exceptional. We had just moved home from overseas and bought a house with no floors so we did not have access to allow First Floors to measure. Theye allowed us to use our own measurements as we wanted the floors laid ASAP once we had the keys. The floor is beautiful and laid very professionally (thanks Steven). The carpets are also lovely and exactly what I wanted. The only thing I would change about the experience would be to have First Floors assess the house in advance. We have fire doors which were a problem the day the carpets were laid. This was not the issue of First Floors and it was resolved quickly. Thanks again David, we would highly recommend First Floors to anyone.

Ian and Lesley Proctor January 2022

Another Great Job Done!!
Just had our third floor project in seven years completed by First Floors once again.
Great service from David and his showroom team from assisting in the selection of materials through to arranging the installation. Chris and his team worked tidily and efficiently on the hardwood flooring with great attention to detail. Gordon who fitted the stair carpet was very professional in his work and was able to resolve some problematic details to our entire satisfaction.
Would definitely recommend First Floors.

Gavin Reid 18/08/20

We recently had First Floors install laminate flooring in our lounge and hallway and are absolutely delighted with the final result! It has been finished to a high standard with great attention to detail.

Having had a rough idea of what we were looking for, David helped find the perfect flooring for both rooms.

We were booked in quickly and kept informed throughout the process.

We would definitely recommend and use again.

Christine Sharp 23/08/20

Chris Milne 30/08.20
