B&Q Floormaster Easi-loc beech laminate flooring

AdvantagesCheap, nice appearance.

DisadvantagesSome boards not cut perfectly straight so tricky to fit.

"Easi-loc by name but not easi-loc by nature! The first two rows went down easily but trouble started on row 3. The problem was that not all the boards are cut entirely straight, which meant it was very difficult for adjacent rows to fit properly (some were very slightly convex and some very slightly concave). Over the whole floor, this caused slight gaps in either the middle or one of the ends to occur, and made it very difficult to get the boards ..." Read review

B&Q Floormaster Easi Loc laminate flooring

AdvantagesEasily available

DisadvantagesMost difficult to fit

"...with my son fitting B&Q Easi Loc Flooring to a room measuring no more than 15' x 10'. "Easi Loc", what a misnomer! I am very experienced at all aspects of DIY work. I had no hesitation in reccommending Floor master laminate from B&Q having fitted it single handed in my kitchen and hallway 7 years ago. It went down very easily, the boards really did "click" into place, and we are pleased with the appearance and durability, even surviving a minor ..." Read review

Buyer Beware

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagescheap rubbish

"Having decided to replace our carpet in our living room with laminate flooring, we were attracted to a "special purchase" being offered for sale at our local B&Q.We were on a budget. We duly measured up the room and went along and spent £200 on beech effect flooring. We followed ALL the enclosed instructions, storing the packs at room temperature before laying etc. the day came to begin the job of laying, we cleared the (rather large) room of carpet ..."

Quick review of B&Q Flooring

"I laid an easy loc floor recently after laying several in the past using B&Q and another well known stores flooring but hadn't laid one for a couple of years. After laying the first row I had trouble laying the second row, then the third so I scratched my head for a bit, believing they'd changed the flooring from earlier incarnations before i decided to reluctantly read the instructions (why do that when i'm an "expert" right?) and within literally seconds I remembered the technique and I finished a 4 metre by 4 metre room in 2 hours. I can see why some people would struggle but there is a simple technique that allows you to do it easily, without this this flooring can be exasperating to lay to say the least.

Quick review of B&Q Flooring

"just fitted Floormaster aqualoc to my kitchen,dining room and conservatory. It was not easy even for me a joiner. I have now discovered that it has ' bubbled' in several places possibly due to a spillage or her indoors mopping it, went back to B and Q and I am told that it is not under warranty for spillage.... Amazing since it is AQUALOC for bathrooms and kitchens etc. They have'nt heard the last of me !...

I rate myself 5 stars!! - laminate flooring

Advantageseasily available, reasonable price, very easy to assemble

Disadvantagesonly available in one size so some waste

"Due to an unfortunate leak in the toilet the unit needed replacing and after getting a good quote for supplying and fitting new toilet the only thing I had to do was replace the floor covering! As a frequently failed DIY candidate the thought of disconnecting a toilet, ripping up a wet floor covering, then preparing and laying a floor in an hour (small toilet!) did not fill me with optimism. I visited B&Q, selected 4 lengths (£5.99 each) of bathroom ..." Read review

B&Q Tile Loc

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesImpossibly diffcult to lay and very poor results.

"B&Q Floormaster Tile Loc laminate is the worst laminate flooring I have ever tried to lay. However their design range is very good and there is an excellent DVD you can purchase if you have never laid laminate before, which goes through all the necessary steps. But that's about as good as it gets. I have successfully laid laminate floors before without any problems. I did everything by the book (B&Q's DVD) but found it was incredibly difficult ..."

Forget carpets

Advantageseasy to lay, good service and return system

Disadvantagescan chip easily, laminate quadrant awful

"...to be, we went to B&Q in New Malden and found a huge selection of wooden floors. We plumped for the Floor LOC Beech Effect flooring, which is one of the laminate floors. This consists of a tough resin which covers a photograph of the beech effect underneath, with a MDF like compressed wood underneath that. I bought 14 packs, underlay, and about 12 lengths of quadrant. I began with the 20` long living room. As most people do, I found the first row ..." Read review

Annoying chips and easy to damage

AdvantagesEasy to lay, no special tools needed.

DisadvantagesLow quality control, easily damaged.

"The flooring goes together like it says on the box. The planks are quite straight and the laying, once you figure how to get around obstacles is straightforward. The need to engage a plank at 45 degrees is irritating. I chose to remove all skirting boards and the door frame facings to ease the task. So far I have rejected about four planks (10%) for damage received in transit. A further 4 planks were lifted after they developed small chips along ..." Read review

looks very nice, but at what cost?

Advantagesnice, clean, shiny, easy maintenance

Disadvantagesbreaks too easy, is always freezing cold.

"I am a big fan of laminated flooring, I always have been. Its cheap, looks very nice, cleans easily. There is however a downfall to all this. The cold! Over this winter, which has had to of been the worst for many years, our house has been rather cold. It is down to the fact we have laminated flooring all over the downstairs of our house. Every morning, and indeed allday and night long it stays cold. We changed from nice warm comfortable carpets, ..." Read review

It's Convenient

AdvantagesCheap, easy looks clean and attractive

Disadvantagesnot very hard wearing!

"I love the wooden effect flooring, it's crisp, practical and clean. i have it in my conseratory and kitchen.It's easy care, apart from you have to be careful with the amount of water you use when mopping! You can't beat B&Q, it's easy and there is a wide range of designs. I needed to get a more expensive design for my cony, because of the heat, but it was still under £15! Plus i always love the help i get when i go in store! My floor is still in ..." Read review

B&Q laminate -appalling quality

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesAppalling quality, chips and dents for no reason

"This expensive laminate was laid whilst I was away. On my return I noticed that it had began to chip in places. I live alone and am most careful with it. I have not dropped anything on it and have no pets/children yet it is still chipping. I had chosen the most expensive version of the laminate as it has a long guarantee but this has proved to be not worth the paper it's written on. Beware, too, of "independent" inspections should you have problems ..." Read review

Great flooring

AdvantagesEasy to clean

DisadvantagesQuite hard layuing the flooring by yourself

"Ive had my bedroom done, my previous look was a white carpert which wasn't white at all any more it was a grey dirty look so decided to floor my room with the wooden but i was having doubts about it but went through with it and i was so pleased i did as the finished product was WOODEN! The wooden flooring was all done by me and a friend to save money rather than hire a professional to come round and do it. The room now looks much better, it is a ..." Read review

easy to patch and repair

Advantageseasy to lift and re-lay excellent for people with allergies

Disadvantagesdose'nt do your hand saw any good when cutting it

"we have laminate flooring down where ever possible in the house as our son is allergic to natural latex and you would be amazed at the things that contain latex almost all floor covering for one thing. our floor has been down for two years now, it is the type that clicks together so that it can be lifted and taken apart. although more expensive at the time the investment has just paid off for us,after having removed a rather large brick fireplace, ..."

Decent flooring at decent price

Advantagescheap, majority of pack easy to fit, looks nice

Disadvantagesvery easily chipped, some joints not good, some pieces not square leaving gaps.

"I have now used B adn Q flooring twice. First time was on type which is available in oak. I found this to be of excellent quality and after 12 months still looks the same as it did when layed. The second lot was of the cheaper variety. It is on offer ususally, and although I had more problems fitting this, I found it still good value for money. I have used it again in my Mothers house and it is a good option, when carpet is not. I am new to laying ..." Read review
