“We cannot speak highly enough of  Jack and his team. They are incredibly hardworking. The quality of the  workmanship is excellent. They undertook quite a large project, which proved  more difficult than expected (carpets hide a multitude of sins). Despite this,  the project was completed sooner than planned and the result is truly amazing,  better than we could have hoped for. Jack manages quite a large team, which adds  flexibility especially on larger projects. But he keeps a very close eye on  every project from start to finish. If you need anything to do with wooden  floors, call him."

“Needed floors in several rooms sanded in an old house Work done to a high standard and looks great. Extras were fair and reasonable and we were warned beforehand that making good would be "cost-plus", and since quite a lot was clearly needed, was in line with what I expected. Had to wait a little while for slot in the diary, but they turned up early on the arranged date. We're getting these guys back to do the rest of house shortly. Recommended"

“Jack was friendly from the moment he came home to measure the house. He gave a competitive price , and stuck to the agreed fit date. He advised us well on choices of flooring. He also removed small amounts of builders' waste from our house that the electricians had left behind for no extra cost. We would definitely use him again and have already recommended him to family.



Avon Hardwood Flooring Ltd was recommended to me by a friend, after looking at their portfolio I had no doubts about working with them. What impressed me the most was the close working relationship shown by the dedicated staff. They were efficient and reliable and the end result was amazing. I will definitely be using them in the future.

Floor sanded and oiled.

“Couldn't fault how much effort was put into the job, very tidy and conscientious. Arrived when expected and very pleased with end result.”



We selected Avon Hardwood Flooring to complete the Oak block flooring project in our church in Swindon. From the start, Avon demonstrated a strong understanding, not just of the logistics and practicalities of installing a large floor, but also of the aesthetics and design decisions needed to make our floor really stand out.  Their pricing was competitive and estimates given were always clear and accurate. They completed the work well within their projected timescale and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for similar work in the future. They also offer a useful annual maintenance and care programme which we intend to implement to ensure that our floor continues to look great for years to come.

I wanted to say what a fantastic job Wiktor has done it really looks beautiful from what we can see as we have only looked through the doors at the moment, he worked non stop and cleaned up as he went.  How rare it is to find a company like yourselves that arrive on time on budget as promised - excellent. Many thanks

Please thank the guy from Avon Hardwood Flooring (I'm sorry but I didn't catch his name) for all the amazing work that he has done over the past two days as I missed him when he left. The floor looks absolutely stunning! Thank you also for fitting in with the kitchen company's schedule by doing the work in two parts. I know that you don't normally work this way so I really appreciate your flexibility.

We decided to use services provided by Avon to have our hardwood flooring installed in our bedroom. The team have worked carefully, professionally and they were skilled. The effect is just what we wanted from the very beginning. Right on schedule, for great price and with no hassle - a perfect job! Thank you and I will definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a proper hardwood floor installation.

Yesterday Jack and his team installed hardwood flooring in our living room and it looks just brilliant. They helped us choose the right kind of wooden boards for our room and then got to work installing and the surface is smooth and shines perfectly. Great job done by Jack and the rest of Avon team. The price was very fair for the quality I have in return. I definitely recommend Avon Flooring!

All I can say is that Avon are well organised and know what they are doing. I chose them to renovate my wooden floor in the kitchen and from the very beginning I knew it would be done well. Everything finished within the schedule and the floor gained an excellent texture with a matt finish. A couple of scratches and other imperfections were easily handled by the Avon team. I am sure I would use the service of these guys again.




We are extremely happy with the work Avon Hardwood Flooring have done for us. They completely refinished our engineered hardwood floor which looks great now and is effectively improved. Even the newly replaced wooden boards perfectly match the old ones. You simply cannot tell which is which! The finished floor look great and it makes the entire room look even better now. Thanks a lot guys!

Robert & Mary



From the start to end, we were very pleased with the process and work done. Gregory was easy to contact and speak to and very helpful. The men who came to do the work (Tadek and Filip) were also very good. The job turned out to be more troublesome than expected as when the first stripping of the old floor stain was done it revealed the extent of old woodworm damage. This meant we had to replace a few more boards and Gregory had to go back to get extra material. Though I quite like the "distressed" appearance of the floor I am sure Gregory thought it wasn't good enough and it was great to see someone with such pride in the job. All the filling and making good was excellent. The job was done in a clean and tidy fashion, with very little dust etc I think the finished floor looks great and have already recommended the company to a friend. I would certainly come to you again if I have further work. I think the cost of the basic job was good. "

We were more then delighted with the work that you did at our home - the floors were utterly transformed, we could hardly believe it! We would be more than happy to provide a reference at any time.

2 floors renovated, made good existing floorboards, sanded, stained and sealed.

“Excellent workmanship which has made a huge difference to the house. We could not be more pleased with the work and have already received positive comments from visitors. Company was highly professional and efficient and the workmen incredibly hardworking and polite."



14 April 2015

"I wanted to contact you and let you know about how happy my family and I are about the quality of the work you did for us. Initially I did have a few concerns because a large proportion of my floor needed to be renovated and I was worried that it might take a very long time. However, your team's professionalism was such that we wouldn't even have known that your team were here.When I returned from work, our family home was probably cleaner than it was before, especially as the floor looked brand new."

Solid parquet flooring to lounge and hallway.

“Definitely craftsmen at work. The floor took 5 days to put down and the guys were working late to get it finished. Jack always kept us informed and was prompt to reply to queries. The installation team were obviously skilled and their workmanship spoke volumes. Saving up to do another room now!”

“Very happy overall. I cannot fault the standard of the work. The wood flooring itself (teak stain, matt finish), which was bought through the company, was chosen after looking at small samples of the various stains, so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. However, it looks beautiful and exactly what I had envisaged when I made the decision to go for wood flooring in the first place. In summary: high quality, great looking floors, fitted to a high standard, in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. Would not hesitate to use this company again or recommend to others."

Hi Jack

"I just wanted to write to thank you and your colleagues for doing such a wonderful job on our wooden floor. We are absolutely delighted with the results, the floor looks so much better than we had ever imagined it could, we are so pleased that we took your advice and had it restored rather than covering it up. It really has transformed the downstairs of our home. You all worked so hard and got the job done exactly when you said you would. We really are very grateful and would be very happy to recommend you and indeed will be recommending you to anyone who needs a similar job done. If we ever need any wooden flooring done again in the future we will be straight on the phone to you! Many thanks again"

Hi Jack,

" just a quick thankyou to you and your team for an excellent job on our family room and study floors.
You were recommended to us from Church friends who said what a good job you did.
We are really pleased with the final product and even though you said it was dust free- it really was! After months of dust and dirt from having our extension done it was a welcome relief!
We have already had a lot of compliments on the floor.
We are happy to recommend you.
Kind Regards"

Hi Jack

"The team from Avon are the most hardworking group of people I have met. Not only that, but the quality of their work is superb. Because of the unbelievably high quality of the finish of the restored and sanded wooden flooring, we now have a most elegant and glamorous home.

I have given your details to a number of neighbours already. If you send me some of your business cards I can hand them out. Also, you were going to let me know about the best way of cleaning the floor and keeping it looking as good as it now."

thank you and your team for fitting the oak floor to our cottage last week. It looks splendid and we are very pleased.

"Dear Jack,

Tosay we're pleased with our newly-sanded floor is a bit of an understatement! I admit it did feel like a bit of a gamble,booking a company we dint't know, plucked from the internet-but the end result is absolutely amazing.The rich colour & perfectly smooth finish has completely mess-free as you'd promised- for 2 long days.All we did was supply coffee & biscuits, & say 'wow' a lot!
Thank you so much for delivering exactly what you said you would,and at such a resonable price.I'd absolutely recommend Avon Hardwood Flooring Ltd. to anyone- & would be more than happy to speak in person to anyone considering having work done by your company.
We're desperately trying to think of another floor to have done-when we do; you'll be our first call!
I enclose a cheque in payment of invoice 1060-with,again,many many thanks.
With best wishes"

"Hi Jack,

Thank you for the excellent job you have made of my floors – I feel like I am living in a different house. Gone are the uneven floors, drafty gaps and dark-stained boards and in their place you have left me with a level, gap-free and natural looking floor that has been polished to perfection by your hard working team. The lack of dust in each room, during the process, took me by surprise and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting to renovate their home. Thank you again for a job so well done."

"Dear Jack,

It’s been a month or so since you and your team fitted our new floor in the sitting room and dining room, and sanded our old one in the hallway. I just wanted to write to say again how thrilled we are with the overall result. The way you managed to bring together old and new is extraordinary – the new floor looks like it has been there forever. I also wanted to mention that we have rarely come across a team with a better work ethic. You and the two other guys who worked on the floor are not only very skilled, but also very meticulous and professional.
We plan to have the conservatory renovated soon, and I know who we will be calling to sort out the floor. Once again, thank you for an excellent job.

Yours sincerely"

"Avon Hard Wood Flooring,

This is the second time I have used you to do the floors in my house, and I wouldn't even think about asking anyone else to do the work. You have completed excellent work on both occasions, arriving early, finished late, working incredibly hard and making no mess as all. All for a very reasonable price.
I would highly recommend your services to anyone.
Looking forward to you all coming back and doing more work on our house in the future.

Many thanks"

"Dear Jack

May I thank you for your complete professionalism and your excellent workmanship. You have restored our wood flooring which was considered by other companies to be beyond recovery and as you will see from the attached photographs the results you have achieved are way beyond our best expectations.

It was also a pleasure to deal with you because of your polite and conscientious approach to the difficult challenge we presented.

As Chairman of an International company I can honestly say I have rarely come across such a dedicated and professional team as Avon Hardwood Flooring.

Kind regards"

"To Whom it May Concern.


Ref The Congresbury Estate Walnut Tree Farm Cleeve, North Somerset BS49 4PQ.

Avon Hardwood Flooring Ltd have just completed the renovation of a large wood block floor.

This work have been done to our entire satisfaction.

The company responded to our enquiry with speed and courtesy and visited our premises. They produced a quotation and programme of works both of which they have discharged in an excellent manner. They arrived to do the work on the day they agreed and finished when they said they would.

The floor has been completely renovated and the work carry in a businesslike way with an excellent result.

We cannot speak too highly of the people involved in the entire project.

We would have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending them."


Haydn Harrisson, The Congresbury Estate.



Jack sanded and oiled our maple kitchen floor in May 2009, a few weeks after another clearly less experienced tradesman botched the job. He was punctual, cheerful and pleasant and his quote was very competitive. He and his team carried out this work (plus some extra sanding and board replacement in our hall) while we were away for a weekend and we returned to a dust-free, mess-free home and beautifully finished floors. I would not hesitate to recommend him, he is that rare thing - a craftsman! We found him to be diligent, conscientious and trustworthy. He also has good connections in various trades, what a bonus. I'd be happy to give any potential customers our phone number and let them see our floors. Thanks again, Jack"

Frank and Susan

"To Avon Hardwood Flooring:

Dear Jack, my family and I would like to thank you personally for the work carried out on our new hardwood floor. We are very pleased with it and appreciate the quality of the workmanship and all the hard work that your company carried out for us.

I must say that all our friends are envious and keep asking us, which company fitted the floor for us? I would not hesitate to recommend you because the floor looks fantastic and your service is second to none. My wife was surprised that a company could actually turn up on time every day and finish the job on time, and best of all, we had no mess to clear up as there was very little dust etc. She was also worried that our under floor heating might get damaged, but it is working as it should do, and the floor looks much better since you filled all the gaps correctly.

We are hopping to use you, and your company again soon, for a new sanded floor in one of our bedrooms and will be in touch again, in the summer.

kind regards"

Vincent, Linda and family
