Customer Testimonials

Ashley Cain 17 Bercroft Cheshunt Herts had many companies contact me for the laying of my laminate floor, but Criterion Flooring stood out. Neil is communicative and responds quickly to emails and phone messages. He was easy to deal with, turned up on time and most importantly him and his team did an excellent job of laying my floor!


The team arrived when advised and the work to-date appears to be very good. We have no problem recommending them and would be happy to allow potential clients to inspect.


Regarding this particular job we are happy as building contractors as long as our customers are 100% satisfied. On this ocasion the client was happy both with the work done as well as the customer service. Neil has not only kept his commitments and turn up on time but was flexible with worked well with us. I can say without hesitation than you can trust this firm on your domestic projects and more. With appreciation.


Neil and his son did a cracking job on our floor and we'd highly recommend them for any similar types of job. I selected Criterion because they were an established firm who specialize in wood floors, (thus had the expertise and equiptment) and priced the job competitively and transparently. e.g. the said straight from the start that the job would require 3 coats of Lacquer with a fine sand between coats 2 and 3 to get the right finish to last 10 years. Quality of work was similarly straighforward and with a good attention to detail and with minimal mess, fuss and good communication. I would definitely not hesitate to use them again for any flooring jobs.

From Our Website

From it's showroom in Berkhamsted Criterion Flooring offers a wide selection of high quality European Oak and also provide and fit, skirting boards, architraves and doors. Neil Smith and his son Luke are passionate about the health benefits and natural beauty of wood flooring and will be happy to advise you on the best wood floor to suit your requirements. If you need to match the colour of existing flooring or for your new wood floor to blend with carpets, doormat footwells or staircases nour team of craftsmen are well equipped to provide bespoke installations.


Criterion flooring is based in Tring but has worked in numerous surrounding villages including Berkhamsted, Amersham, Chesham Puttenham and Long Marston building a reputation for quality wood flooring. Neil Smith has extensive experience in installing wood flooring which has led to Criterion Flooring working on both residential and commercial projects including Trings Zoology museum and the Big Brother house! They work to very high standards and are happy to share their knowledge to help you get the best result in your home or office.


An existing concrete flooring should be entirely flat. An uneven floor will need to be screeded or ply board laid ( WBP Waterproofed ply board) to ensure the surface is completely flat. The under flooring will determine how stable the floor is underfoot. For example a solid wood floor bonded to a screeded sub floor will provide a stable surface, permanent under foot with better accoustics. It is bonded with adhesive, which provides a water proof layer to prevent any damp from beneath affecting the wood flooring.


Natural untreated wood is available in 15, 18 or 20mm thickness. The thicker the wood you specify, the greater it's longevity. A 20mm solid wood for example, will provide a lifetime of beautifully presented wood and a comfortable surface to walk on. Engineered wood is multi layers of ply-board bonded with a solid wood veneer. An engineered board takes less time to adapt to it's environment an is more stable more quickly, it's manufactured, so it doesn't 'move' in the way untreated natural wood does.


And consequently it doesn't last as long. A 6mm laminate would last around 2/3 years and 8mm surface perhaps 12-15 years and a 9.5mm laminate up to 20-25 years. Criterion supply and fit both commercial and domestic carpets. Carpets can be a more economic choice than wood but we would not recommend an 'economy' carpet. A cheap carpet will generally deteriorate and look flat and old with in 2 years. This is because the tufts are not tight enough.in a more expensive carpet ie 18-30 a meter the tufts are closer together it will weigh around 40oz and will cope much better with heavy domestic traffic and keep its colour and shape.


LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile - a product that looks like real wood and stone flooring, but provides many more practical benefits. Available in a range of shapes, sizes and effects, you can create an authentic looking floor in your home, without the practical drawbacks of natural products. So you have the flexibility to create their own floor design with individual LVT planks and tiles, as opposed to sheet vinyl. Choose a chevron design using planks, a monochrome style with contrasting tiles, and/or parquet in popular herringbone and Shaker styles.
