Why Choose Sustainable Flooring?

In the world today we can generally say that CO2 emissions are one of the main causes of our climate change. It is so important for individuals and companies to take climate change into consideration. Let’s take trees. Trees are wonderful and absolutely crucial for our planet. When a tree is growing it absorbs the CO2 from the atmosphere and it is a fact that just one cubic metre of living wood will absorb and break down 1 tonne of CO2. This process is called photosynthesis. What this means is that the CO2 is broken down by the clever tree, stores the carbon and then releases life giving oxygen into the atmosphere!!

That is why it is so important to choose a wood product that had comes from sustainable sources.

PEFC: Program for the endorsement of forestry certification.

FSC: The Forest Stewardship Council At First Floors we only use wood and products that come from sustainable sources. For us and our customers this is extremely important. When a tree is felled another is replaced.

When it comes down to our laminates and vinyls, all the companies that we use are environmentally aware. This is just some of the background principles regarding First Floors. All our ranges are carefully chosen and picked to offer our customers ‘Top Notch Products’ from reliable and sustainable sources. Our prices are reliable as well and we will not be beaten of price. We feel that our customers want value for money and indeed that is one thing you are guaranteed here at First Floors.

We also feel that customer service is a priority. From the beginning of the sale until the end you will receive an honest and reliable service focussed on the customer and what they need. We would recommend that you bring in samples of say kitchen unit colours or fabrics so you can match and tone. The staff at First Floors have had years of experience and will guide and help you to your decision. Solid wood floors, engineered boards, laminates and luxury vinyls. First Floors have an excellent and comprehensive range from which to choose from. Please pop into our showroom, where we will be more than happy to help.

Customer Reviews

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

Wee have recently had a new laminate floor laid in our upstairs hall. We are very happy with the result and feel the level of workmanship and finishing detail was excellent

Chris Milne 30/08.20

Excellent service from first point of contact. Staff took time to discuss and review options, then worked to suitable timescale based around my schedule.
Work completed on time and to a very high standard, delighted with results.

Ainsely Meldrum 10/09/20

Honestly so chuffed with my new floor. Everyone has been so helpful especially after I ran into issues on my end and had to delay getting my skirting on - everyone I spoke to has been so flexible, the joiner who fit the floor was really pleasant and quick too. Highly recommend!
