Just bought a bachelor unit Downtown Toronto. How much would it cost to do the following:

- remove carpet in the living area (approx. 250 sq ft)

- remove ceramic tiles in the corridor and kitchen (approx. 150 sq ft)

- replace all the space by laminate flooring

Thank you!

You are looking around 1000-1500 for labor only.

Hi Laura,

For the labor part, removal and disposal current carpet and ceramic tiles, and installation of laminate, you are looking at $1000-$1500, because we don't know if you are going to install new baseboard and replace other parts as well.

Removal, disposal and installing new laminate floors would be around $3000

For laminate installed your 1485.00 at for a 12 mill laminate

And your 750 to remove the old flooring with labour and disposal

May cast up to 2500 if u hafve old trim or Quoter round to be put in

2500-3000 np with new trim and Quoter round or shoe mouldings put inn

I'm currently not from the area that far south but that's my take on this subject

Thank u I hope all goes well for u.
