Great experience, was able to organize and choose the floor through samples and conversation around what we wanted via phone – we managed to get exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend Forté, I think they stock and are able to access the most beautiful wooden floor boards around. Great support and advice around installation etc. The floor boards are definitely one of our favourite features of our home!

Loving this new wood flooring form Forte Flooring Manor Range. We used their Manor Collection - Atelier Classic Genuine French Collection and it is stunning. We are getting compliments from all the visitors. The wide textured panels add a lot of character and it has been well worth the investment. The floor is easy to maintain and we now don't have to worry about hours of vacuuming. plus the texture gives a nice feel under the door. Our sales persons and their recommended installer were both very helpful. Thank you Miguel and Les.

We worked with Michelle and Courtney - who are both the best at what they do. They were smart, and whatever they were unsure on they would spend time researching and getting back to us. Renovating the house floors was a huge stress for me, and they made it very easy. They were always prompt the reply and help when needed. Added bonus is our house now looks amazing and I felt involved in ever choice and decision in the process. Highly recommend if you are looking for a great, sustainable, hardwood flooring solution.

We have just laid Forte Manor" Black Forest" timber flooring in our new home and we are thrilled with this beautiful product. Forte folk were terrific to deal with - very professional, helpful and most knowledgeable. Can highly recommend Forte and their wide offering of quality products.
