Flooring Fitting Service
All of our fitters undertake advanced training courses to make them the very best at what they do and some of them have been with us for 27 years. This knowledge and experience means that you are in safe hands.
We offer a free, no obligation measuring service. During the measure we will test your current flooring and take a moisture reading to check that it is safe to fit. Nine times out of ten we are out to see you within the week.
Our showroom has been in Darlington for 27 years. We are constantly updating which means we have an extensive range with 100’s of samples for you to take away and products to keep your flooring in top condition. Why not pop in for a coffee and a browse?
We opened for business in 1989. Today, the name of Norman Foster is renowned throughout the area for our high quality carpets and impeccable service. Our carpet fitters are some of the best in the industry and always offer great service.
As a successful, local, independent retailer and a member of the Associated Carpet Group this means our carpets are sourced collectively to ensure customers get the very best quality and prices, from the best suppliers in the UK, all year round.
It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can’t be done if you deal with the lowest bidder, it’s well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.

We have had floor coverings supplied and fitted by Norman Foster over the last 15 years and have no reservations in recommending him to anyone. We have always found him extremely professional and helpful in all our purchases; he has always been willing to that extra mile in helping us choose the right floor covering without ever making us feel pressured into a purchase. The true measure of a good service is when something goes wrong and on a couple of occasions we have had some problems (the fault of the carpet supplier not Norman) and in these instances Norman has sorted the problems out for us without causing any issues for ourselves. It is good to support a local company and when they do a good job, as Norman does, that support is well deserved and in the present mass market of faceless companies to deal with Norman Foster is a rare pleasure.

My family have been using Norman Foster Carpets for over 20 years where we have always received 1st class service and quality carpet and floor coverings. Norman and his staff always go that extra mile to ensure to ensure carpets etc are measured/fitted at the customer's convenience and you always feel valued as a customer. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Alderson
I've used Norman Foster Carpets for flooring for three houses. He has supplied both Karndean flooring and carpeting and i have been really pleased with both. He's given me good advice, top quality products and his fitters are both careful and competent. Mrs Barber
I have no hesitation, whatsoever in praising Norman and his team for their courtesy, help and experience when i have consulted them about buying carpets and floor tiles. With regard to the fitting of any item, they carried out the work in an efficient manner, even to the point of disposing my old carpets for me. Mrs Noddings
Norman Foster first supplied us with carpets some 30 years ago when he worked for Waring & Gillow. We continue to use his services confident that he carries a range of quality products that will meet our requirements. He is reliable and knowledgeable. His advice has always been good and offered in a constructive,non-prescriptive way. As an independent trader he is an asset to our area. He also employs one of the most reliable and efficient carpet fitters. Mr & Mrs Haidon
