Hunters Wood, Melksham

Hunters Wood is a lovely new development of 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes in Melksham. If you’ve decided to purchase your new home here, it will be surrounded by the countryside and the Hunters Wood development will include new foot and cycle paths throughout the development.

Your new home will be within walking distance of the town centre, where you’ll find schools, parks, independent shops and a thriving local market full of friendly people.

This site is perfect if you work far away or simply like to travel as it is close to junction 17 of the M4, which is just 10 miles away. The A350 and Melksham train station are less than a 10-minute drive away, giving access to major towns and cities around the country.

Do we need to get new Carpet & Flooring ourselves?

Some suppliers, such as David Wilson Homes, supply standard carpets and flooring for your homes. While these are paid versions that you need to select from for the different variants they offer, they don’t offer much. The developers tend to offer a hand full of ranges as they buy them in bulk and get great rates for doing so but these saving are not passed onto you, the buyer. You will often find that you can save money by buying your carpets and flooring from an independent retailer in the area, such as V & A Carpets, as well as get a better product or a better selection of products to choose from.

 

Why would it be better to get carpet from an independent Carpet Retailer?

If you decide to purchase your carpets and flooring through the developers, it’s important to remember a few things. Firstly, and most importantly, all contents inside your home are guaranteed for 5 years, and the externals are guaranteed for 10 years. The 5 years include the carpet and flooring you purchased from them. At most carpet retailers, your carpets have warranties for a minimum of 10 years. this extends up to 25 years for some carpets. Dependent on the hard flooring you choose, these guarantees start at 10 years and go up to 35 years. The security you get from purchasing your flooring externally will prove most helpful. If you are worried about having to deal with two entities when something goes wrong, don’t be. If something is wrong with the building work, the developers cover the cost of replacing the flooring if it gets damaged or needs to be taken up and replaced again. Secondly. we touched on it briefly above, where developers only have access to a few ranges and colours which they buy in bulk, to get better pricing, but do not pass those savings on to the end user, which is you, the buyer. They are often more expensive than independent retailers when quoting for the same products. And lastly, the quality of the fitting. In the housing trade, carpets and flooring fitters aren’t paid particularly well for doing the job, which in the trade is referred to as house bashing. Yes, that’s the term used for fitters who work in the development trade. It can be as bad as it sounds. As they don’t get paid a good rate, you often find the fitting isn’t as good as you’d expect it to be. To cut corners they often use joins or fit carpets in different directions on your stairs to save money. This will lower the integrity and life span of your carpet on the stairs where it needs it most. You need a trusted retailer who will do right by you and supply you with the right products, and fit them correctly for you to get the most out of your flooring and keep them looking better for longer, as well as give your the best value for your money.

Many thanks to V and A Flooring for a very friendly and professional service. From our first visit to the showroom through to carpet selection, measuring and final fitting, all aspects of the job went very well indeed and ran smoothly. We are delighted with the finished job. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and happily recommend their services. Vicky and Alex gave good advice and valued guidance at all times.

V&A Carpets have been fantastic from start to finish, from choosing carpets to fitting. We had a large renovation project and we had to move fitting dates several times and added carpets to our order, and generally moved things around, Alex and Vicky were great about all this and really helpful and unflappable with all my last minute changes and our house now looks stunning definitely 5🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Can’t recommend highly enough. Provided a really helpful service with choosing the flooring and received samples within a couple of days. Kept in contact throughout the process and couldn’t do enough to help. Fitters were brilliant, really good guys and finished in half a day. Went above and beyond to help. I’ll be using V&A again without doubt.

I have had 3 carpet quotes recently and none compared to V & A Carpets. Their knowledge, sound advice and professionalism shone through. They arrived on time with a wide range of samples including underlay. They advised on a type of carpet to have by my front door to further protect my carpet. The carpet samples themselves were of a higher quality than the other 2 companies. 5 star service.

We had our entire house carpeted by V&A Carpets as well as Luxury Vinyl Tiles for our hallway and kitchen/Utility. The quality of the carper and LVT is absolutely fantastic. With the kids running round all the time we are really happy with the investment. We returned to V&A for our front door and rear Mats which were fantastic also. Would definitely recommend V@A, a great local business.

Alex has been excellent in providing advice on the right flooring and then helping me find matches to bring ideas to life in his extensive showroom. Personable and helpful, he’s been very helpful with securing stock and working dates around my completion date to get everything sorted pre Christmas. In a challenging time for all, this has been one of my easiest tasks for my new house. Very grateful. Would recommend as far better than chain stores who’ve no interest in the more personal elements of what you need.
