I must be missing something but, it might be the wine but I am blowed if I can find Howdens prices on line - I have an account and I can log in and look at invoices etc but there does not seem to be a place on the Howdens web site to log in and see prices. What an I missing?
This week I am helping a mate lay a floor over about 55sqm. He wants to use a Quickstep Uniclic Oak. Versions are available from Howdens or B&Q, the latter at a little under £20 per sqm. Two questions. 1 - Has anyone used the Howdens Quickstep Laminate products. Ie one of these. It is a genuine Quickstep product. https://www.howdens.com/flooring/laminate?atr_flooring_locking_system_sm=Uniclic How was the price and performance? 2 - Can I use my Howden’s account at a different branch on the same day? I know I will probably have to set up a local account. Cheers Ferdinand
I happened to be in my local Howdens branch yesterday in search of light coloured Quick-Step Uniclic Laminate Floor. This is the full range (I was told), but not all branches stock all of them. Prices in my Howdens without underlay are around £18 per sqm inc VAT, but the VAT may not be reclaimable. Obviously colour reproduction from poor light to dodgy phone pic to colour autobalance to your screen to different lighting means that a physical sample of the one you are thinking about is important, and it won't look like that anyway in your new house ?.
So I just opened my Howdens' account, thinking of replacing 2 x 1000mm base units in a newly bought terraced house with a galley kitchen, due to a relatively minor damp problem (back of units discoloured after 10 years under previous owner - may start a separate thread on diy DPCs in solid party walls), and this offer appears. This is the offer available: Which is a whole kitchen for little more than the price of those 2 units. At the price it seems a steal - if I wanted to fit out my own utility it may be worth buying and throwing the oven etc away. I would expect the appliances to die after a few years, but even replacing these then with a decent brand it is astonishing value. My impression of Howdens' units is that the usual 18mm carcases are solid, but the range tends to be quite conservative (not necessarily a problem). Does anyone have any experience of their more basic range? Thanks Ferdinand
