Commercial Flooring Contractors Derby
Forester Flooring Co is a specialist commercial flooring business with over 20 years experience, and we cover surrounding areas across the East Midlands.
Derby and Derbyshire
Derbyshire is in the East Midlands and a large part of the county is home to the Peak District National Park. The City of Derby has a population of over a quarter of a million people whereas the largest town in Derbyshire is Chesterfield, with a population of over 100,000.
The city is proud to boast of its engineering status hosting the offices of Derby and Hucknall branches of Rolls Royce and the University of Derby is on Kedleston Road.
Derby and Chesterfield provide us with a lot of our commercial flooring enquiries, so we have a big soft spot for these areas and always look forward to visiting commercial buildings and meeting new people in Derbyshire to measure up and quote for contract flooring projects.

Flooring and Floorcoverings
The quality of the product that’s being laid on the floor is just as important as the skill of the floor-laying professional. Quality flooring and floorcoverings can make all the difference to the look of the finished job and whether you want carpets, carpeting, carpet tiles, vinyl flooring or LVTs, you need to choose the best quality flooring and floorcoverings you can.
As specialist commercial flooring contractors, helping clients and customers choose the right flooring and floorcoverings for their premises is a big part of our job. We take the uncertainty out of the choice and only recommend flooring products that will last and still look good. The first two questions we usually ask are:
“How busy is the space” and “How long do you want your new flooring to last?” That’s a good starting point and we can all go on from there.

What are the disadvantages of vinyl flooring?
Commercial vinyl flooring must be installed onto a completely flat, smooth surface. Because vinyl is typically only 2mm thick any imperfections in the sub floor can show through, so the sub floor preparation needs to be done properly and can be expensive. Sheet vinyl cannot easily be repaired and can be difficult to remove. Vinyl’s appearance may fade over time.
Which is more expensive vinyl or laminate flooring?
The price of both varies dependent upon quality. Installation costs are higher with vinyl since the sub floor must be prepared properly. This involves screeding a concrete floor, or over boarding a wooden sub floor with flooring grade plywood. Concrete slabs must be checked for moisture and a damp proof membrane installed if moisture is present. Thicker laminate products will ride over slight imperfections in the sub floor, possibly avoiding expensive preparation work, although any damp issues will need to be remedied the same as for vinyl flooring.
What is the best flooring for the money?
Whilst cost is a consideration, it is important to choose the correct commercial floor for your premises. Once you have established exactly what it is that you require from your floor covering you can then look at the associated costs and compare them.
What is the most scratch-resistant flooring?
All commercial floor finishes will suffer scratch damage if due care is not taken to protect the floor when moving furniture. In general, any commercial floor covering will resist scratches, but all are capable of being marked. The best floors for scratch resistance are porcelain, bamboo, concrete, solid and engineered wood, laminate. Non-laminate wooden floors can be sanded and re-finished.
What is the best flooring for heavy traffic?
Most types of floor finish are suitable for heavy traffic providing you select a robust version of your chosen flooring. Some carpet tiles will not last twelve months in a busy office, but we sell a tile for just £2.95 that has a fifteen-year commercial wear warranty. Along with the durability of the product the maintenance regime must also be considered, we see many floors that look dreadful but have not been down that long – they are filthy rather than worn out. Your floor covering is an investment that must be protected and maintained to achieve its full potential over an extended life on the floor.
Do dark floors make a room look smaller or bigger?
Dark floors tend to make a room look smaller, but a dark colour hides marks better. The effect a dark floor creates may be countered by clever lighting and light wall coverings. The floor finish should be considered alongside wall finishes and displays – the floor should not detract from whatever is being sold.
