Matt & team
With the store owner being an experienced flooring installer himself, this has made a huge difference to the installation jobs we do. His sales team are trained to run jobs with the least possible joins and any potential issues are thought through thoroughly. This gives the customer the best possible finish every time and makes our job easier.
How did you get into the flooring trade? “Family friends owned a flooring store, so they offered me an apprenticeship when I was 17years old. I gained experience in installation of both carpet and floating floors. I now have over 18 years’ experience and a professional team behind me.”
What’s your favourite product to install? “Underlay ha ha…I personally love the look of engineered timber flooring even though it’s a lot of work…the smoothest product to install is nylon carpets – joins perfectly every time!”
What has been your most memorable job? “We did the Foxtel building in Moonee Ponds. Over 5,500 sqm with over 1000 desks, all work done in the evening, it was a huge site but very rewarding to see the finished product of our accomplishments.”
Team Arman, Amin and Mohamad,
How did you get into the industry? “My dad was a builder, so I was always surrounded by building and construction. Flooring is the last fixture to go down and you get to enjoy seeing the room transform into a living space, so I have specialised in the flooring installation trade and have been doing this for 8 years.”
What’s your favourite product to install? “The condition of the sub-floor is so important. Hybrid is the easiest product to install due to the properties of the plank, less floor prep required.”
What has been your most memorable installation? “I have worked at Federation square station for their Platform renovations and the radio station 101.9FM, but the most memorable was for sure Channel 9 series, The Block. We were given a time frame of 6 hours to install 80sqm which is a very large area…. we finished in 5h and 59minutes!”
What led you to the industry of flooring installation?
“My brother-in-law is an installer and asked for help one day from me. At the time I was working in retail management, so flooring installation was very different. This is how I got my start, I have been a flooring installer for 12 years now. The job is physically demanding but my knees are still in good shape so I have plenty of life in me to keep on going!”
What products do you install? “I specialise in broadloom carpet and carpet tiles across both domestic and commercial spaces.”
What’s your favourite product to install? “SDN short twist pile. The product joins well…and the short pile means its lighter to carry!”
