In 1988 Geoff Swinard’s love of working with wood led him to extend his carpentry business to include wooden flooring, with the ultimate establishment of Swinard Wooden Floors. A skilled craftsman, he employed like-minded woodworkers and ran his company from his home in Governors Bay. While the workshop and showroom is now based in Christchurch, the main office remains where it all began. Sadly Geoff died in 2000 but the company continued, run by his wife Jane Swinard and his foreman Chris Lee (now General Manager). The company retains Geoff’s principles of commitment to excellence with a personal approach. Our small team of staff are trained craftsmen who have worked for us for many years.
We can create a new floor, overlay an old floor, repair, recoat and/or extend an existing floor. We work with architects, designers, builders and homeowners; installing floors in small apartments, large residential homes, commercial offices and shops through to large sprung floors in gymnasiums.
