My name is Darrel Wildbore and I am the owner/operator of All About Floors Ltd. I have had a long history with flooring as my father has worked in the flooring industry since he was a young man. So it has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember and since leaving school it has been my chosen field of work. I spent many school holidays as a child following my father around and learning the art and craft of flooring and at 17 years old joined him in working for a well-known and successful flooring company (Campbell’s Floorsurfacers est 1933).
It was a proud moment when in 2006 I had the opportunity to take over Campbell’s and try my hand at running a successful small business, bringing flooring into the modern world and with it a new name (All About Floors Ltd) and to continue doing the work I love. It was a privilege to carry on the good will and the large client list Campbell’s had earned over the 73 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed the responsibility of continuing to provide a professional service to our many customers and take joy in the fact that most of our work is through word-of mouth, that we have created positive relationships with many new and returning customers in both private homes, schools and public centres (state housing, halls and sports centres etc) and have built excellent working relationships with many of Auckland’s builders and construction companies. I have also been lucky enough to take my flooring skills and expertise around the North Island and also overseas to Nauru.
I have a real passion for flooring and all of its aspects and my expertise and knowledge has grown over the last 23 years with the help, support and advice of many experts in the area and I am now using this experience and knowledge to create the work of art the customer is wanting. I strive to keep up to date with the latest products and techniques so that I can provide the customer with the best service. There are so many variables in flooring and there are no guarantees when working with such complex products/materials; however I am able to adapt to these differences and work and communicate together with the customer to get to the expected outcome.
We offer a variety of flooring needs, including parquet, timber and cork tile installation, sanding and polyurethaning, staining/wax/oils, court markings and logos. If what you are looking for is not in my specialty then I will know just the right person to refer you on too. And as our motto states – “From bathrooms to gymnasiums” – no job is too big or too small. I also offer free, no-obligation competitive quotes.
