Our installation team with arrive promptly with you on the morning of the installation. We ask you to move as much as you are able to out of the room or rooms we are working in, our team are happy to assist with large or awkward items. Customer experience is important to us so our team will cover the room with floor protection and dust sheets. An average installation should take one day to fit.
