Hip Floor Solutions

“I first had the pleasure of meeting Barney whilst renovating his brother’s house, this was in early 2009. Since this project I have only used Barney for my flooring work, sanding, staining etc. I run a largish high end property renovation company and have not come across anyone as good with flooring and as good with my clients as Barney. Long may it continue.”

Nathan Leeks - Director Queens Park Design & Build.

“Barney Hipperson of Hip Flooring Solutions has completed three contracts for us. The laying of a new Junckers Ash floor in an 18th Century coastal house at Aldeburgh, Suffolk, new solid wood floors in a renovated Victorian townhouse in central Cambridge, and repairs to an existing floor in a London apartment. All were completed, perfectly, as scheduled, on time, in budget, and to the high standard demanded, and we have been pleased to recommend his highly professional service to others.”

John Carter, Cambridge

“Barney was recommended to me by a friend who he had done work for. He supplied and installed new oak flooring in my apartment. He had a good selection of products to choose from at reasonable prices. The quality of work was excellent and he was punctual polite and tidy, I have since passed on his details to a number of colleagues at work.”

Ms Hawley, Peterborough.

“HIP Flooring Solutions sanded and sealed floors in my Victorian terraced house. Barney was totally professional, working cleanly, quickly and sensitively. I am really happy with the result. Some of the wood planks were original and some not, he was able to apply a finish that blends beautifully. HIP Flooring really listens to what the customer wants and is also able to help make decisions if you are unsure of what that is.”

Mrs Abrahams, Queens Park, NW London.

“We selected HIP Flooring Solutions to renovate the floor in our Village Hall, because the quote was competitive and more importantly we were confident that Barney Hipperson (the proprietor) would do a good job. He visited the hall first and met some committee members, and gave us contacts for some of the comparable jobs he had carried out which enabled us to get good references.

The work was carried out expertly and on time using the floor manufacturer’s own brand sealants, and Barney left the Hall in a clean tidy condition. We are very satisfied with the job he did and would recommend him to others.”

Terry Robinson (Brandeston Village Hall Committee).

“Barney from HIP Flooring Solutions is the person I turn to when I need a floor sanded. His attention to detail and professional approach make him a pleasure to work with. Barney also assists me on the larger of my installation contracts. I am happy to recommend him for any hardwood flooring works.”

Tim Peal (Millside Floors Ltd)

“Hip Flooring Solutions laid engineered-oak flooring throughout most of the floor area of my new house. They kept to programme and the work was faultless. I appreciated Barney Hipperson's sound knowledge and enthusiasm. I have used his services successfully on another project and I would not hesitate to recommend him for other similar work.”

Michael Goodhart, architect and self-builder, Granchester, Cambs

“I was delighted with Barney Hipperson’s work. He has done several projects for us and the work is of the highest quality. It is easy to plan a project with him and his prices are competitive and reasonable – it is great value for money. We have been happy to recommend him to our friends.”

Junckers Unique Clip System the Solution in Listed Building

Kensington Palace State Apartments in Kensington Gardens, managed by Historic
Royal Palaces, has recently been represented and re-opened to visitors. The client
chose Junckers solid hardwood floors in an oiled finish for a sophisticated, high quality look for the newly opened Piggot Galleries where the exhibition Fashion Rules is currently showing with a stunning display of modern Royal dress.

As Kensington Palace State Apartments is a building of special architectural interest and highly protected fixing to the original fabric are strictly controlled by English Heritage, Junckers Wide Board Oak floors were specified and installed with Junckers’ unique, floating clip system which meant there was no need for glue or nails. Historic Royal Palaces’ architect, Carden & Godfrey worked closely with contractor NDB to provide specially-designed details to resolve the junctions between the old and new joinery. The floor was installed by Millside Floors in conjunction with HIP Flooring Solutions.
