HISTORY

Contract Flooring Solutions Ltd originates from a retail flooring business dating back to 1955, which was handed down through generations of the Day family until it reached our founder Steve Day. That retail flooring business continues to run today.

It was around the turn of the century where things started to change. A colleague from the House Builder sector had been let down and Steve stepped in to help out with flooring for a single house. Through his efficiency, speed and quality of work, Steve quickly turned one house into two, three and four – opportunities arose.

Contract Flooring Solutions was eventually born in 2005, and through Steve’s ethos to adapt a responsive, retail model to a corporate environment, our company now sits as one of the leading flooring providers to UK House Builders and Housing Associations.
