What can I expect to pay for 1,900 sq. ft. installation of laminate or engineered hardwood in Greater Van? There are 5 bedrooms and a landing involved.

Laminate is real cheap, sometimes you can find it on sale for .79-1.45 /sq' .. Supply install here in Ontario would be 5-6 dollars per sqfoot.. Engineered hard wood is more expensive and would prob run you around the 7-10 dollar a sq foot supplied and installed.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, gentlemen. It is the cost of the labour here in Vancouver that I wanted to know about, not actually the laminate itself.

You are looking from 2.75 to 3.50 per square foot for installation of the laminate itself. Cost varies on the width and type of laminate you supply. Some click together easily, some not. You also have to choose your underlay (foam) this cost varies as well. Then you have the expense of installing new baseboards and trims.

Hope this helps.
