“Buyer Beware”

published 09/10/2000

cheap 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...

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...

Most difficult to fit

I have just spent most of the weekend 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...

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.

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 !...

only 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...

“B&Q Tile Loc”

published 29/07/2007

None

Impossibly 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...

“Forget carpets”

published 02/09/2006

easy to lay, good service and return system

can chip easily, laminate quadrant awful

A year and a half ago we were set to move to an empty 2 bedroom flat. The flat was carpeted throughout, except the bathroom and kitchen which were vinyl tiles. The carpets were quite gross on close inspection and we decided to change them. After seeing how expensive this was going to be, we went...

“It's Convenient”

published 09/01/2004

Cheap, easy looks clean and attractive

not 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...

Appalling 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...

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...

Easy to lay, no special tools needed.

Low 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...

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...
