There are several methods of fitting carpet: Straight to floor with spray glue on appropriate ancillaries such as underlay and gripper. Straight to floor using perimeter fixed mushroom felt tape (only for felt backed carpets).
Real wood, solid wood, hardwood or simply wooden flooring we believe is the finest flooring solution that you can choose for your home. Whether you're just looking for a new floor to go in your kitchen or living room, or a commercial venue, wood flooring can add a rich depth and visual appeal to any environment.
Laminate flooring is a material that brings together the synthetic and the natural, combining the appearance of natural wood with a wood backing, making it a firm and solid flooring surface that can look just like a hardwood - or other surfaces - while not actually being one!
Vinyl floor coverings make the ideal flooring for kitchen and bathroom areas - carpets in a kitchen areas tend to soak up all the grease and fumes from the kitchen and are also not very practical if anything is spilt on them.

Underlay & Gripper
Underlay Flooring Advice: At Variety Flooring we always say that you should try to buy the best you can afford this helps to prolong the life of your carpet and helps to deaden any noise caused by walking around the floor.
Screeding & Gluing
Quite often concrete floors will have uneven patches, channels which have been chased out to install pipes for central heating and not filled back to a level, ridges or gaps where a wall has been removed or a room extended, etc.
Many of these imperfections will be too small to the human eye to notice through a carpet with underlay, but some may be worth attending to before the fitting, to remove the possibility of an unsightly ridge or dip in your carpet which will annoy you and may cause premature wear in some cases.
