I have a question regarding overall cost for flooring. We have about 313 sq ft of flooring to replace this is a mix of ceramic tile and laminate. Is there a separate cost for the removal of tile and installation of engineered hardwood? We've been quoted some ridiculous amounts so I'm wondering what's the truth?
Let's say 150 sq ft of tile, and the remainder laminate and $7 sqft for engineered hardwood. How much should my flooring cost exactly?
depending exactly what you want to do, example do you intend to remove existing flooring and install new. Removing existing floor tiles requires extensive labour then you need to prepare i.e. smooth and level the floor before install new floor
you have to account also, baseboard, waste disposal
Marcelino - thanks for the reply. THe goal would be to remove the old flooring and install engineered hardwood over it... plus new baseboards and potentially subfloor.
you have to cut old tile flooring out along with he underpayments is fastest way. Engineered hardwood if thick enough 3/4" can be typically installed right on sub floor if its flat and good shape otherwise another layer of underlayment. Floor alone all in from demo to install of new I would charge $10/sqft labor only/consumables, all materials extra @ cost plus.
