Hi Kim,

What's the existing floor? If it's carpet then labour will set you back around $3,500.

That's removal of existing floor and installation of your new hard wood. Materials aren't included.

I hope this helps.

Hardwood flooring installation alone will cost you 1.75 to 2.00 per sq. Ft.

Add to it the cost of carpet removal and disposal. Plus quarter rounds installation IF you are keeping the current baseboards.

Hi Kim,

Providing a per sqft price is difficult, especially site unseen. There can be a number of factors that contribute to the overall cost.

I would recommend getting specific quotes for your project. This will provide a better picture of the overall costs.

Hope this helps.
