Floor Preparation and Levelling

Before fitting a brand new carpet, vinyl, safety or rubber floor it is imperative that a full preparation process is carried out. You may find that previous flooring installation companies have fitted your new flooring perfectly but not carried out preparation work before hand. This can lead to bubbling, creasing and lifting.

Flooring PreparationHaving worked in the flooring industry for more than 25 years throughout the South in Dorset, Berkshire, Hampshire and Wiltshire as well as the wider UK, our highly skilled and experienced team have completed many flooring preparation projects and are well used to the necessary methods and techniques.

Utilising these methods, including shotblasting, scarifying and smoothing compounds, and over £30,000 of floor levelling equipment, Countrywide will ensure that your floor is in perfect condition before the installation process begins.


Our highly skilled and knowledgeable team will use a shotblasting machine to remove loose material and surface deposits. This will help to smooth out the subfloor and make it easier for a perfect fitting of your new flooring.


Essentially, to scarify your floor is to remove difficult material and grime. Otherwise a flat installation of your new carpet, vinyl, wood, safety or rubber floor is unlikely and bubbling, creasing or lifting will occur.


Smoothing compounds & Latex
Our latex & smoothing compounds are designed to rapidly harden and smooth the subfloor to make it easier for a perfect flooring installation. With excellent adhesion and flow characteristics, our smoothing compounds are ideal for problem areas and are unaffected by moisture.

By using one or more of these methods, our expert team of flooring installers can ensure that our first class installations are matched by our preparation work. With over 25 years experience in the industry, you can be sure that your brand new floor will last for years to come; without any risk of bubbling, creasing or lifting.

We provide our flooring preparation services to domestic and commercial customers across the UK, including Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Canterbury, London, Reading, Thatcham, Wales, Cardiff, Bristol, Leicester, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
