Commercial Flooring Contractors Sheffield
Forester Flooring Co is a long established commercial flooring business, employing specialist flooring professionals and contractors, based in Nottingham. We regularly work throughout the East Midlands but especially in Sheffield and are fast becoming known as "Sheffield’s premier flooring company".
Sheffield is a vibrant and diverse city in South Yorkshire, home to over half a million people. The nearby countryside is made up of rocky ridges and moorland as it forms part of the Peak District National Park.
As it is such a thriving area, new commercial flooring contracts are always being planned and we are very happy to travel and discuss any replacement floors, whether the new projects are for carpets, carpet tiles or LVTs and other vinyls.

But because we are all specialists at Forester Flooring Co., with experience and skills acquired over many years, you can be assured of a professional installation using quality flooring products and highly trained floor-laying professionals.
We are used to working on construction sites, so working alongside and liaising with other trades but still creating the type of top quality flooring you’ll be thrilled with, will never be a problem when you team up with us. You can rely on us to be professional at all times and just get on with the job.

What is the most durable commercial flooring?
Any commercial flooring is designed and manufactured for use specifically in commercial installations. It is important to decide what the floor covering needs to do and select the correct product for your location. A 750 gram 100% nylon carpet tile is very durable, but no good for wet areas, so it’s important to identify the type of flooring you require. Having done so, select the highest specification that the budget will allow.
What is the best flooring for the money?
To try and decide what is the best flooring available for the money means you’ll have to carefully consider the footfall of the area. Is it a busy commercial area with high footfall or a remote back office, and is the new floor going to be laid in a dirty workshop or a clean reception environment.
Then you can decide what is the best flooring for the money. New or reclaimed carpet tiles are the best value flooring for a clean office environment, whereas heavy duty commercial vinyl will be the best value flooring for a workshop.
What is the toughest flooring?
The toughest flooring is usually thought of as being a commercial grade, heavy-duty vinyl. This type of vinyl floorcovering is manufactured to withstand every scenario in a tough environment and is very easy to keep clean. The installation costs may be higher than if you chose carpet tiles but if you need a flooring product that will withstand the harshest of environments, it would be best to look at the commercial vinyl flooring options.
What is the best flooring for heavy traffic?
When you start to consider what is the best flooring for heavy traffic, it helps to think about what type of heavy traffic. Is it heavy footfall or is it machinery and is it clean or dirty heavy traffic.
For heavy but clean footfall, a nylon carpet tile will do a great job but if it’s dirty footfall, it would be best to choose heavy duty vinyl flooring product which will be easier to clean. And of course, if the heavy traffic is dirty as well, it would be most advisable to choose dark coloured flooring in a commercial grade vinyl. A concrete or stone floor would be the best option if the floor will have to withstand heavy machinery. There are so many options, in most cases it’s best to talk to a professional flooring company before you make a final choice.
What is the best low maintenance flooring?
Many modern commercial floors require little but frequent maintenance. In normal use, carpet or carpet tiles need regular vacuuming and will benefit from being professionally cleaned periodically. Vinyl and wood can be revived with a damp mop – again, a professional clean for vinyl will keep the floor looking good should it become too soiled. Solid or engineered wood floors benefit from a light sand and re-sealing every year or two, rather leaving it for a long time which then requires the floor to be heavily sanded and refurbished. Routine maintenance spreads and limits the cost, leaving a floor until it is badly soiled or damaged can lead to premature and costly replacement.
