We want to remove the carpeting in our basement and replace it with laminate flooring. The square footage is approximately 880 square feet. We will supply the flooring. How much would it cost to
a) remove the carpeting & baseboards
b) install the laminate flooring & new baseboards
Please note that this is a cement floor and may require leveling and/or installing plywood. Can you please provide this as a separate cost.
Only looking for cost at this time.
You will be looking at approaching $3000, if not more. Hard to say with your location and the unknown condition of the cement subfloor.
Demo would be about $600-700 and install about $1500-1600.
The rest needs to be inspected on site for an accurate number
Job site within GTA
Removal of Carpet 0.30/sqft
Installation of Laminate 1.20/sqft
Removal and Installation BB 5" 0.80/sqft
0.30+1.20+0.80 = $2.30 2.30*880= 2024
Plus wastage and door transition. Ball park price would be around $2200
You need to provide underlayment, the levelling of the subfloor would be conduct on site measurement weather needed or not. Usually the levelling of the floor could be hedge by using a thicker laminate 12mm or 15mm thickness.
Something just to keep in mind because its the basement, and i don't know if there is a leaking problem with your current condition . Most of my client who s renovating there basement i would recommend Vinyl floor. the installation price is the same. Water proof, way better at moisture adsorption.
If you are interested we could arrange on onsite visit.
Hope I answered all your questions. :)
Hi, the pricing here by everyone else looks about right. I would recommend going with a drycore subfloor system in almost all basement circumstances. That allows you to put in laminate safely. You can research drycore on your own to learn about it - they sell it at the Home Depot. Even cement floors that look like they are in good shape can wick moisture and leave a space under a floor damp, unless a subfloor allows the cement to breathe. That is what drycore does.
