Testimonials

Please review our testimonials below:

We recently purchased 18mm engineered wood floors for our hall from your branch on the Long Mile Road.

When it came time for installation by your team, our old carpet was removed and sadly we discovered that our original floor was in pretty bad shape. A number of the floorboards were warped and the floor level varied by several millimetres in many places. The team cautioned us that to continue with laying the new floor would be risky and could result in boards moving and potentially separating due to the ueven base. We also discovered that because the new floorboards were 18mm thick it was necessary to skim the underside of our hall door and four other interior doors. We had not considered this from the outset.

We decided to avail of your floor preparation service to level the existing floors and skim the doors before proceeding with laying the new floor. The process involved first fixing any loose floorboards, then using a special machine to plane the entire surface of the floors to make them completely level, before covering the whole surface with plywood. The result was a perfectly prepared floor, ready for a simple installation of the new floor.

As I am quite elderly, live alone and at the time was recovering from severe illness, we were very apprehensive about having this level of work carried out while I was in the house. We need not have worried. The floor preparation work was carried out by Tomas, the specialist from Des Kelly, dedicated to Customer Service. Before commencing any work, Tomas took the time to meet with my son and me and talk through exactly what was involved in the work. A key point was the use of high performance vacuum integrated into the floor plane equipment, ensuring that all dust is captured immediately and there is literally no mess whatsoever. We were also concerned to ensure that the interface between the new floor and the adjoining floors was neatly executed and above all safe. We learned that Tomas is highly skilled and experienced in woodwork and clearly loves his craft. The bottom line is that Tomas did a superb job for us and was one of the neatest and most helpful workman we have ever had in the house – an absolute pleasure to have around the place.

To anyone considering new wooden floors in an old house I would absolutely recommend that Des Kelly carry out a thorough site survey in advance of installation. The floor levelling service resulted in a really beautiful installation, which does justice to the beautiful new floor boards.

Thanks to Des Kelly and especially to Tomas for a really great job.
