I need a 500sqft basement renovation done, currently carpet to be replaced with laminate. Drywall & ceiling replacement. What percentage of the budget would demolition involve?
If your basement renovation is as simple as replacing carpet with laminate, taking down drywall from the walls and ceiling and replacing with new for a 500sqft area, the project cost (without seeing anything) would be roughly around $10,000.00 and the demolition portion would be roughly around $3,000.00 of that. These amounts would not include any surprises that may be found (i.e. mould, electrical surprises, etc) and for us that cost would include materials and labour.
Hope that helps.
Demolition is not a large part of the budget. Without seeing it and without any surprises, a basement of that size can be demo'd for about 3k including the labour, bin etc. The total project should come in around 10-11k assuming you do not want to add a washroom, kitchen, any additional than what you listed above.
I don't know if there is a formula you could use. You need a bin for the garbsge $500.or so, and some labour to take it apart and to the bin, 2guys @ $14. /hr X the # of hrs. 2 days is $450.So demo might be $1000.(appx.)
There are many laminates and prices, I will leave that to you.Now you have the drywall framing and finishing to contend with for whatever level you want eg painted or sprayed ceiling.
Is that any easier?
