Carpeting FAQs

Carpet Supply & Fitting Service

I used Paul Ealey Flooring to carpet my new home. I found Paul to be good value and an outstanding fitter. He was very efficient with some odd shaped rooms meaning there was little carpet waste (to reduce my overall cost). Paul was very respectful of our home and the quality of work, and materials used were excellent.
