Mr Stephen Orton, Berkshire

Having had parquet flooring laid in the past, we decided to have parquet in our new house. Indeed, we had four large rooms laid. Three with herringbone pattern and one with Versailles pattern. All rooms were laid with top grade solid Oak. The service provided, the materials, used, the initial meetings and the laying staff were all first class and extremely polite. Clearly, and experienced team. From start to finish everything was very professional and also at very competitive pricing. We would unreservedly recommend this business to any potential customers on every level. It was a great experience and the finished flooring is quite superb and most impressive.

Mrs Sarah Bishop, Staines-upon-Thames

We just wanted to convey our thanks for the exceptional job you and your team did in fully replacing our whole home with wooden flooring. Our home has been transformed into a place of beauty. I would also like to make note of the courteous, respectful and helpful manner shown by you and your team. This along with hard working manner displayed by you all, made the experience a very positive one for us and our family. We would certainly recommend you to our friends and family for any installation or restoration whey may require.

Mrs Greenacre, Royal Wootton Bassett

From the very first meeting for our consultation we found you to be very courteous, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. When your team of fitters arrived to install our Oak flooring they were also courteous, friendly, highly skilled and hard working. They made very little mess as they worked and this was cleared up at the end of each day. The standard of materials and craftsmanship is second to none and we are now the proud owners of a fantastic Oak floor to the Ground floor of our home. Our sincere thanks to you and your team of fantastic fitters.

Professor Rogers, Purton, Swindon

Please accept this short note to thank you for our new floor that you supplied and fitted. We are delighted with the floor which is exactly how you predicted and compliments and enhances our ground floor living area. The floor is almost a work of art that we will enjoy for many years. We also thank you and your fellow fitters for your professionalism and courtesy during the fitting. We were very pleased to find a company that was helpful initially and subsequently turned up on time and undertook the work with minimal disruption. Many thanks to you and your company. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and family.

Mr Paolo Dini, Wandsworth

I am happy to write a letter of reference for your work. My first impression when you came to take measurements for the quotation was positive, as you explained clearly what you were going to do and why. Your quotation was approximately half way between the lowest and the highest. I convinced my wife that your quotation gave me the highest confidence of value/price ratio, and I think you quoted me right. I appreciated your flexibility in rescheduling both parts of the job when, in each case, my work commitments would have made it very difficult for me to stick to the original plan. Your close attention to detail for all aspects of the work was also noted and provided reassurance. The quality of the wood is excellent and the workmanship and professionalism of your artisans outstanding. For both parts of the work your team was scrupulously punctual. I also appreciated your flexibility in adjusting to my different views and preferences regarding wood dyes and varnish finish. This has been all around an excellent experience, and I thank you very much indeed for your outstanding work, and for the beautiful floor.

Mrs Jacqueline White, Hampshire

I am absolutely delighted with the Hall and Sitting room floors recently restored by you. From start to finish you and your team were a pleasure to deal with. Your deserve a very successful company. Your attention to detail and professionalism are second to none. I would have no hesitation recommending your company. Once again very many thanks and best wishes to you all.

Ms Vanessa Webb, Wroughton, Wiltshire

"Exquisite Woods did a marvelous job. They laid a reclaimed teak parquet floor in my lounge. The result is stunning - beautiful craftsmanship and precision care taken in the individual sanding and laying, by hand,of the solid wood blocks. The parquet floor has greatly enhanced my home; the subtle, warm tones of the wood with the herring-bone design are a joy to behold. Exquisite Woods were very helpful and highly professional throughout every stage of the work. I recommend the company, Exquisite Woods."

Linda and David Compton, nr Hungerford, Berkshire

"We are as delighted with our oak floors as our daughter is with hers. The finish is excellent and the rooms have been transformed! Thank you for your very good advice, for answering our (many!) e-mailed queries so promptly, for competing the job on time and with the minimum amount of mess and disruption, and for providing us with beautiful floors that will last for many years. Should we decide to change any other rooms to hardwood flooring we will certainly be in touch!"

Mrs Joe Fallon, Bath

"Thank you so much for our wonderful parquet floor, it is stunning and we are really thrilled with it. Thank you also for all your hard work and professional attitude while you were here. You were prompt, worked hard and really cared about the quality of the work you did - which is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to someone else."

Patricia and Chris Armstrong, Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire

"We never usually submit reviews but as so much effort was put in by Dimitri and Quentin of Exquisite Woods to make the whole job run as smoothly as possible we thought we would share our views and experience. Our existing parquet was refurbished. Reclaimed parquet was laid to part of the Living room, Hallway and downstairs toilet. We are very pleased with the finish and professionalism of this company and we will not hesitate to use them again."

Mr and Mrs Slattery, Highworth, nr Swindon

"We have had 2 wooden floors completely renovated by Exquisite Woods Ltd. One floor was Oak, laid 10 years previously and we wanted it darkened. The second was a 100 year old Pine Parquet that had taken years of knocks and discolouration. Both floor were renovated to a very high standard and to our complete satisfaction. We would highly recommend this company."

Mr and Mrs Bray, Stroud, Glos.

We contacted Dimitri at Exquisite Woods to discuss parquet flooring for our Hallway, having been very impressed with the excellent reviews on their website. We are delighted to add our own review to these. Our Hallway, being long and straight, low and narrow, posed a challenge. We wanted to create a warm and inviting entrance to our home. Now that our beautiful new floor has been installed, we are amazed at the transformation. The quality of the floor and the workmanship are first class, and we now have a hallway to be proud of. From the first appointment with Dimitri, the Director, to the final date of the work, we have been extremely impressed with the excellent service, professionalism and total reliability of the firm, and we feel and we feel that we have received a product and service that represents excellent value for money, combined with the highest quality. The team that carried out the work arrived at exactly the time they said they would arrive, and the stages of the job that would be completed on each day were clearly explained to us in advance. The team worked extremely hard, took great care with every stage of the installation, and tidied and cleaned up at the end of each day. To summarise, we cannot recommend Exquisite Woods highly enough! This is a thoroughly professional courteous and efficient firm, and we are very pleased we chose them to install our new floor. Thank you all! We are delighted!

Mrs Pat Davies, Wiltshire

We are extremely pleased with our new parquet floor just installed by Exquisite Woods Ltd. It is exactly as we envisaged and agreed. The fitters were very efficient, friendly, hard working and tidy. We can thoroughly recommend this company for providing a professional, effective and good value for money service and solid wood flooring finished to a high standard.

Mr and Mrs Jeniec, Worcester

"We highly recommend the Exquisite Woods Company for the fitting of a parquet floor. They have recently fitted a Maple wood floor for us in the Lounge and Dining rooms of our home. The wood is good quality, they arrived on time every day, completed on time and charged as agreed. The work is of a very high standard and we are pleased to say that our new floor is indeed “Exquisite”!"

Mr and Mrs Game, Swindon

"We would like to put on record our delight at the way Exquisite Woods laid our solid oak floor in our Lounge and Dining room. They were very meticulous and worked extremely diligently till the job was finished. They were very thorough with every aspect of the job including cleaning all areas and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. The Oak flooring looks lovely and has exceeded our expectations. Exquisite Woods went out of their way to help us and provided excellent customer service. Even when we scratched the floor moving heavy furniture, they returned to put it right at no extra cost. Thank you for a job well done. We would have no hesitation in recommending Exquisite Woods to anyone who requires a high quality solid wood floor."

Jean and Keith Hanlon, Tadly, Hampshire

Our mid eighteenth century cottage required renovating and improving and so we contacted Exquisite Woods Ltd. We now have our living room, landing and two bedrooms beautifully finished in oak flooring by Exquisite Woods. We are so grateful for the excellent, friendly and efficient service that we received. The flooring has stood the test of time, is as beautiful as ever, and we thoroughly recommend Exquisite Woods Ltd. Jean and Keith Hanlon

Mr Danny McGinn, nr Bath

I inherited some rather special Mahogany blocks and I looked for a very long time to find a company the were experienced in their craft to be able to lay the parquet in my Grade II listed farmhouse. From start to finish we received a professional and superior quality service. All at a competitive price. I was amazed at the amount of equipment and precision tools used to get the level of detail and accuracy. A great deal of care was taken into laying the floor and I was blown away by the meticulous progress that was being made. Given that the wood was reclaimed Mahogany, you could never tell it was reclaimed by looking at it. When people visit they are genuinely astonished at the parquet, often asking/commenting `Wow, has that always been there?`, `It`s such good condition`, `It`s absolutely stunning`. I can stand back and smile as I am not one to brag, however the parquet floor is truly special. The pattern, the precision, the borders, detail around the fireplace, the rich colour and natural finish are all to a truly exceptional high standard. Thank you for creating what I claim to be a beautiful work of art. Danny McGinn - Wiltshire

Mr Geoff Crossingham, South London

We are writing to express our delight and satisfaction of the work you and your team did when installing the solid Oak floor in our Hall and Lounge in July. The floor looks beautiful and has no marks on it despite the fact that our two young grandsons have charged about all over it with toys which really should have been used outdoors. We particularly appreciated the help and advice you gave us when deciding upon the type of floor and the finish. We were delighted when you were able to demonstrate different stains on the actual floor rather than simply showing us examples. This made such a difference. One of the things which impressed us so much was the way in which you and your team worked: friendly but not over-friendly, polite and helpful and above all the way the dust was all but zero. We were prepared for dust filling the house when the floor received its final sanding but there was none. Fantastic! We have invited a few neighbours in to see the floor and I hope that at least one may be contacting you about flooring in her house. They too are very impressed with the finished job. We saw the work you had done in our friend`s house in Broad Town, Swindon. We could see no difference in the finish of either floor. We think that says a lot. Thank you again Dimitri, I wish you and your team every success in your business and would not hesitate to recommend you.

Mr and Mrs Tufari, Wimbledon

Thank you ever so much for the woderful service you have given us, the new floor you laid for us is fantastic and the job was done better than we could have imagined. It was fantastic finding you and dealing with you from the very start. We love it. Thanks again and best wishes.

Mr and Mrs Pigott, Wiltshire

A belated thank you for the wonderful floor you have laid in our Dining room. It is perfect in our old cottage and has been much admired by visitors. The workmanship was excellent and the whole process trouble free. We will definitely use you again and have recommended you already.

Mr Algar, Surbiton, Surrey

I wanted to write to express my thanks for the professionalism and respectful way you approached the flooring work you carried out at our home. The team were always punctual, careful and friendly. We are absolutely delighted with the end result. Our home looks fabulous now you have fitted our new floor.

Mr and Mrs Hunt, Bath

Thank you so much for a wonderful job. We are thrilled with our Oak floor. We choose you after a visit from the John Lewis flooring dept left us lacking in confidence and inspiration. The skill and professionalism of you and your team far exceeded our hopes - our floor looks stunning! Many thanks again for such outstanding service and quality.

Mrs Grace 0`Molloy, Wimbledon

Dimitri and his team laid a reclaimed parquet floor in our Hall and Living room. It looks amazing, the workmanship is superb. I would not hesitate to recommend them. They arrived on time everyday and worked flat out to meet a very tight deadline. The house was left clean and tidy when the work was complete. We were so happy we asked Dimitri back to do additional rooms.

Mr and Mrs Terry, Cirencester

I have recently had a French Basket Weave mosaic floor installed by Exquisite Woods Ltd. We were very impressed by the website and invited the firm to tender for fitting a new floor. Dimitri was most helpful in enabling us to make our choice by providing a wealth of information. When the team arrived on site they were corteous and tidy and always left the site in a clean condition at the end of each day. They fitted the floor according to the specification and showed great attention to detail. In short, Exquisite Woods did a great job and I would be very happy to recommend them.

Mr and Mrs Durant, Devizes, Wiltshire

Thank you for the excellent work you have undertaken in restoring our Lounge and Dining room floor. The reclaimed Oak parquet looks as though it is original and the meticulous work in laying it is to be commended. I was worried about the sanding to bring the original floor back to life, but there was no dust around the house! We were also impressed by your professionalism and knowledge of woods. The finished result is stunning and we would not hesitate in recommending your team in Exquisite Woods to anyone contemplating a wooden floor or restoration. Many thanks.

Mr and Mrs Oaten, Baydon, Wiltshire

Dear Dimitri, I enclose a cheque in settlement of the work undertaken this week. I also wanted to express Mike and I`s thanks for the work you have done. The attention to detail is second to none and you have transformed two rooms with the excellent workmanship. You also went far above what would normally be expected by coming into the house late at night to finish off the coats. It`s been a very stress free process with your professional approach. Many thanks once again and I would have no hesitation to recommending you and your company.

Mr and Mrs Williams, North London

I am writing to you regarding the fantastic job you and your crew did for me and my husband. The Oak floor looks great and will do for many years I am sure. You kept my house dust free and made the whole experience painless. I cannot sing your praises enough and have shown everyone I can your fantastic work. I hope I get you some business from it. Once again, thank you so much for all your hard work and making my house a home finally.

Mr Mark Wright, Guildford

Having bought 40sq/m of reclaimed Maple parquet earlier this year, we found it difficult to find a company who was prepared to install the flooring. Most companies either wouldn`t install or tried to sell new parquet or artificially aged parquet that we believe would have detracted from the character of the property. However, we eventually found a handful of companies who were prepared to undertake the task. In the end we chose Exquisite Woods Ltd due largely to Dimitri`s enthusiasm and engagement with our project and that he wouldn`t try to compromise on our requirements. On arrival, the parquet proved to be in a poorer condition than expected with large amounts of bitumen still attached to the underside of the blocks, however Dimitri and his team were unfazed by this and over the next three days proceeded to clean the blocks by hand. To conclude, I would highly recommend Dimitri and his team, the work was always of a high quality, the service was always efficient, punctual and professional. The floor itself is stunning and beautiful and continues to give us pleasure as well as compliments from friends and family. Exquisite Woods Ltd provide a great service, in fact if we had pain more we still would have been happy with what was achieved

Mr and Mrs Fardella, Eastbourne

We wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely job you have done with our reclaimed parquet floor – it looks fantastic and all your care and consideration was very much appreciated. It is rare to find tradesmen so respectful and honest (and punctual!) these days, and it was a pleasure to deal with you all. Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference any time you need. We will be asking you back to do the stairs next year. And do look in if you are back in the area before then. Thank you again for everything.

Mrs Kathryn Shayler, Bath

I just wanted to thank you and your team for the stunning and beautiful Oak floor I am now enjoying throughout my home. I found you all, courteous, friendly, efficient and well organised - an absolute pleasure to have you in my home! Your attention to detail was superb, you arrived when you said you would, the cost was as quoted and I really cannot find a single fault. I highly recommend Exquisite Woods to anyone wanting a beautiful new floor to enhance their home.

Mr and Mrs Cain, Swindon

We want you to know how thrilled we are with the wonderful parquet flooring you provided and installed in our Lounge. The quality of the Oak is excellent and your professionalism from start to finish was beyond reproach - Exquisite! We were expecting to be wiping away dust for days after you have left, but we can honestly say there was none! The room was left in pristine condition - all we had to do was put the furniture back. Thank you so much - we will (and already have) no hesitation in recommending your company.
