    laminate flooring - fitting and supplying 20th Mar 07 at 12:41 PM
    We wanted to get three rooms done- living room (approximately 13.4 sq metres) , dining room (15.4 sm) and conversatory (14 sm) plus small hallway(2.64 sm) and we have just had a quote for 1,296 pounds, inc underlay, beading and everything using Quick Step 700. The guy is telling me how Quick Step is superior to everything else, made of HDF instead of MDF, 20 years guarantee, doesn't join by tongue and groove (?) etc etc.

    It all looked very convincing, but its a bit more than we were thinking of paying, can you tell me if its worth it?

    Also from what we have read on this site we thought we would have new skirting instead of beading as we thought this would be the cheaper option, plus our skirting is looking a bit rough, but he says no, if they removed the skirting they would still charge the same, due to the extra work, and then we would have to pay his carpenter an extra 300 for fitting new skirting. Any opinions about this?

    Thanks a lot.
