About Duncan Floor Company

Duncan Floor Company, was established in Onehunga in 1947, making it one of the oldest continuous floorsanding companies in New Zealand. Bill Duncan (although not by blood was like an uncle to the Taylor family) started the company and adhered to strict old-fashioned values of quality, service and integrity, while still adopting modern techniques and products which we still follow today.

Duncan Floor Company are proud that many generations of customers have referred their friends and families to us again and again over the years, trusting our quality of workmanship and service. 

Duncan Floor Company Today

Linda and Dave Ngare have been directors for over 27 years and have seen many flooring trends come and go, but still have the passion to transform, refinish and create stunning new floors.

Our family has also been a big part of Duncan Floor Company for generations, starting with Dad, Frank Taylor who started out as a floorsander in 1958, and then came into the office before taking over ownership of the company. Son Russ who also was a floorsander took over and run it until daughter Linda and her husband Dave took over the helm in 1994.
Our customers include Homeowners, Builders, Architects, Councils, Schools, Kitchen and Bathroom designers. We offer everyone premium quality work and competitive prices. You will benefit from dealing with an experienced and passionate company that stands by its work and makes no compromise on quality.
