“For me, every job is personal.  I lay all floors with as much care as if they were in my own home.  Our superb customer service has become renowned and Viki and I take great pride in everything we do. We treat our customers like we would like to be treated.”

Having been employed as a fitter for 35 years by leading Swansea companies Derek decided to go it alone in April 2011, with his wife Viki Jacobs providing the office support.  Their business has proved a runaway success and Derek’s found himself in great demand as more customers, both large and small, discover his high-quality, reliable, and personal service with fair and reasonable rates.  He enjoys excellent relations with his customers and is delighted to find that he is their go-to fitter.

  • We cannot speak too highly of Derek Evans.  He was exceptional from the time he came to the house to give us a quote.  Great communication at all times with him (and his lovely wife, Viki) and took on board all our requests which he then executed to such a high standard.  Derek was meticulous in his professionalism, courteous and cleared away all the mess every day before leaving.  He was always extremely punctual and hard working.  I’m a less able-bodied person and it can be very difficult inviting a stranger into my home to do a job, but Derek was considerate of this.  I wouldn’t ever hesitate in recommending him to anyone. A* treatment.  The house has been transformed.  So, so pleased we chose him.  Exemplary job.   Lisa Duffin, Neath.  Sept 2021. Level and fit Quick-Step laminate 
  • Thanks so much to both Derek and Viki for doing a wonderful job and providing really comprehensive info and support.  Derek’s no nonsense confidence and competence was a refreshing change, it was so nice just to be able to let Derek get on with it and have complete confidence in what he was doing.  Thank you both for a wonderful job done and equally important stress-free experience!  K Prince, Three Crosses.

  • I came across Derek Evans Floor Laying by chance through an internet search while looking for a fitter for my kitchen and hallway.  Derek visited me with samples and it was clear then that he was an experienced tradesman with lots of knowledge and advice to give.  After his visit, and following a few really helpful emails back and forth with the lovely Viki, I received a reasonable quote and booked a date for fitting.  I decided on LVT but when Derek started the work he found subfloor damp problems that could not be fixed; Derek explained that this would affect the plyboard and LVT over time so on his advice I changed to a hydrosealed laminate with a foil-backed underlay to keep the laminate from getting damaged by the damp. He sourced and collected the laminate for me the same day.  I feel that most fitters would have just laid the floor, taken their money and gone, however Derek gave really good advice and showed he genuinely cared about us as customers getting a good result that would last. He made what could have turned out to be a really stressful experience much easier and the end result is the most stunning flooring that we are thrilled with. Derek’s attention to detail is far above any tradesman I’ve come across before, he really knows his trade and makes sure the floors are prepped appropriately before even attempting to lay the flooring. I can’t recommend this company enough, you won’t be disappointed!  Joanna Maunder, Swansea. March 2021. Level and fit Quick-Step laminate
  • This is a great little family business; Viki and Derek provided lots of advice on the benefits of vinyl vs laminate and how each might suit our needs. They supported us to make the right decision without ‘over-advising’ or being pushy. Viki runs the office and was fabulous providing advice, clear and accurate quotes and bills as well as ordering all our materials. Derek turned up when he said he would, on both the day of the quote and the two days of our install. He is a clean and tidy worker delivering both a well-levelled latexed floor and then a cracking, professional install of our laminate. Really neat and tidy around the complex doorways and architraves. He has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to laminate flooring. At the moment its tricky letting tradespeople into our homes with Covid. Derek however was always on the ball and worked hard to keep his distance from my family, and I felt comfortable he was aware of the issues and sought to behave in a responsible way to protect himself and us. Fully recommend Derek Evans Floor Laying – all in all, a great team, lovely people and providing a really professional service.  Nick Cook, Ystradowen. Dec 2020.  Level and fit Quick-Step laminate

  • From the initial consultation to the final fitting Derek was very courteous, knowledgeable and a true professional in every way. He laid our new flooring to an extremely high standard. We are very pleased with the final results – totally transformed the rooms! A big thanks to both Derek and Viki for their excellent communication and organisation throughout the whole process. Would have no hesitation in recommending Derek – 10/10! Thank you.  Jon Pini, Gowerton. Dec 2020. Ply, latex and fit parquet LVT and plank LVT
