The concept of laying beautiful, long lasting floors with recycled wood led to the creation of Eco Flooring UK in 2008. From here, the company has grown from strength to strength, providing high quality products and services across the country and oversees.
Jim Sanderson, the founder of Eco Flooring UK, began his career in wood during his late teens when he was introduced to the art of furniture making. Later, he proceeded into supplying and installing laminate and engineered wood floors which is where he realised the scale of floor coverings being sent to landfill and the amount of new trees being destroyed for the manufacture of some laminate and engineered products. After many years in the flooring industry, Jim felt a need to use his experience to launch into something new and more economically friendly, so he started reclaiming old wooden floors from pre-demolished buildings and installing them into homes across the UK.
At Eco Flooring UK, we ensure all our wood is ethically sourced. By recycling and re-using, we help to prevent the destruction of new trees and the landfill of other materials such as carpet and laminate. Our teams are true ‘grafters’ as we like to say in Yorkshire and we work hard to ensure our clients are completely satisfied with the end result. We try to keep costs as low as possible without compromising the quality of the products and services we provide. Giving our customers what they want, at a more affordable price.
Jim has been known as a ‘human sat nav’ and that is because we can safely say he has covered most of the UK from Aberdeen to Land’s End carrying out floor installation and restorations for our many valued customers. Our standard of work has attracted the custom of some of the most prestigious clients in the world, giving us the opportunity to truly showcase our talent and passion.
Jim’s craftsmanship led to the commission of a unique creation for the Louis Vuitton private museum, La Gallerie in Asnieres-Sur-Seine.

Our team have carried out projects for the Channel 4 Series, Sarah Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare where we installed, repaired and restored various wooden floors throughout the incredible Rise Hall property in Yorkshire. From this series we went on to work with Sarah again on another Channel 4 programme called Double Your House For Half The Money; Series 3, Episode 4. Here we installed a beautiful reclaimed parquet floor for a lovely family in Sheffield.
