"As suppliers of hardwood flooring we are always looking for excellent floor fitters that we can recommend to our customers. Troy is always our number one choice; his experience and knowledge are second to none. When we needed the oak floors in our retail area to be sanded and sealed Troy was our man. He worked tirelessly over Christmas to make sure the floors were ready for January opening. The floors look amazing and are fairing well."

"Our experience with Authentic Wood Floors was a delight from start to finish. Sensible advice was provided, the workmanship was of the highest order, and the work was completed on time. We love our wood floor and would happily recommend this firm to our friends".

Cirencester Gloucestershire February 2015

From start to finish of installing our parquet floor in our hallway Troy was very efficient and knowledgeable, we had an old parquet floor in our hall which had not been looked after by previous owners of our house so it was not salvageable, so with Troy's help we chose a new oak parquet which is beautiful. He also refurbished our dining room parquet which looks stunning. 

We would recommend Troy to anyone considering a new wooden floor or refurbishment as he has a lot of experience and his workmanship is top class.

Back in November 2013 I had the need for the services of someone with expertise in the renovation of wooden parquet floors. I had to raise and dispose of a carpet in my lounge due to water damage. I had been lead to believe that underneath was a parquet floor - sure enough this was what we found - albeit in a very forlorn and extremely sad looking condition with paint splattered all over and a few 'fingers' missing here and there. To me, it looked very doubtful with regard to possible restoration. However, I had heard that there was someone in Cirencester that undertook this work and I contacted Troy at AUTHENTIC WOOD FLOORS. Following his inspection Troy was fully confident that there wouldn't be a problem - even with any missing pieces. Work subsequently commenced and within 3 days I couldn't believe the transformation, absolutely amazing. Obviously quite a lot of 'big machine' sanding but at the same time amazingly little dust - followed by three coats of 'treatment' and the floor being able to be used very shortly afterwards.
Extremely pleased - 100% - with the end results to the extent that Troy is making a return visit in a week or two to do the same in the hallway - having found another hidden gem under that carpet as well!!
Just to summarise - I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Troy and AUTHENTIC WOOD FLOORS to anybody with similar work to be carried out - excellent work, with all the knowledge and expertise.”

"Troy's advice was always right for the project. His experience, skill and attention to detail created exactly the floor we wanted. Highly recommended.” Tetbury. Gloucestershire. 

Gloucestershire, December 

"A previously very poorly finished floor with a very heavy snooker table on top of it was the project we wanted completed before Christmas 2013. Troy from Authentic Wood Floors came to do the job and was everything you would want from somebody coming to your house to undertake this kind of work. He was punctual, knowledgeable, tidy and on budget, and a genuinely nice person to have around the house for a week. I would not hesitate to recommend Troy and Authentic Wood Floors.”  

Fairford, December 2013

"Troy refurbished our wood flooring after it had extensive wear and then a dramatic water leak stripped it of its natural colour, turning it black. He discussed in great detail how he would repair the flooring causing us the least amount of inconvenience as we are a family with small children. Each day we would come home and be totally amazed at the work he had done and totally surprised by the lack of dust left behind. I would have never believed that the flooring would look better than it had when we originally fitted it. The natural grain appears more visible and the new matt finish is great. I cannot recommend Troy enough and thank him for giving new life to my kitchen.”

"There are so many reasons to use Troy: 

- The quality of the workmanship 

- The attention to detail 

- The tidiness and helpfulness 

- the 'dollies' to help you move heavy furniture 

- the checking of your furniture before it is put back to ensure there are no scratchy sharp edges. 

We enjoyed having him and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.”

Kemble, October 2013

"When we decided to replace an existing floor, which was part tiled and part carpeted as a result of building alterations, with an engineered oak strip floor we obtained quotes from a number of contractors.   We chose Troy to do the work because we were impressed with his knowledge and professionalism when he came to survey the project and discuss the options available to us.  Now the work has been completed we could not be more satisfied with our decision.    It was a pleasure to have Troy working in the house, he completed the project on time despite the problems caused by the removal of the old floor tiles and was always willing to discuss the progress of the work and adapt his plans to cause minimal disruption to our family life.   The end result is all we could have hoped for and has received favourable comments from everyone who has seen it.     I would have no hesitation in using Troy again or in recommending him to anyone needing a wood floor installed.”

“We were faced with trying to match an old wood floor, installed in the '60's, having extended the area by about 6ft. This involved removing a laminate flooring and also levelling the base - quite a technical challenge! We were therefore delighted to discover 'Authentic Wood Floors'. From the first visit Troy's enthusiasm and love of all things wood was obvious , and we felt confident he could provide the solution. We were not disappointed. Troy's knowledge, skill and attention to detail was second to none, and he spared no time or effort in getting the perfect match. Almost a year later it still gives us great pleasure; a wonderful piece of craftsmanship. Following on from this he restored an old pine floor in another room to its former glory. Again, it has enhanced the property. We would have no hesitation in using 'Authentic Wood Floors' again, and whole heartedly recommend Troy and his company.”
