    Hi everyone,
    Im Craig, I’m new to the forum, been fitting since I left school at 16. I’m 40 now and my knees and back are still just about holding out. It was just a job to me during my 30’s, as marriage and children took over but I have a new passion for my craft again. Always learning and very protective over what we do.

    Definitely Merit ! I’m based in Reading, Berkshire. I fit carpets, vinyls woods and laminates. Used to fit ceramics but don’t enjoy it and very messy. My brother fits LVT and wood, always been to hard on the knees for me. Besides I just wanna perfect my game but we give each other a hand occasionally on big jobs etc

    Yes it definitely helps when you’re thinking the same thing on a job and being with someone that is just as fussy and cares. I’ve been around people that don’t and it’s draining

    Yeah. That’s one of my massive pet hates is people who don’t care about their work.
    I’m now at the stage I’ll take twice as long to do a job but I’m producing the best quality I ever have.
