How much does it cost to rip out carpet from a 300-400 sqf room and replace it with laminate hardwood?
Removal of pad and carpet, scrape staples is about $2.00/sf in Grande Prairie, installation of laminate starts at $2.75/sf and goes up from there depending on the laminate you've chosen.
Understand that most guys will charge to move the furniture in and out, they won't clean out the bottoms of closets for free, and unless you intend to install a shoe molding (1/4 round) the baseboards will most likely have to be removed and replaced.
Those prices don't include installation on stairs, or quietening, sanding, or floating the floor should it need to be done.
These are the rates that we charge as independent floor layers, shop rates may vary in the city.
Hope that helps.
Labour cost go as such
1) remove carpet $100 / room
2) remove and re-install baseboards $100/room
3) Installation labour for reducers ( transition to other areas) $35/unit and $50/unit for any nosing (stair areas)
4) $2.5/sqft for hardwood and $2/sqft fro laminate
Materials such as flooring, underlayment ( for laminate), nosing material ( approx $50 /unit) and reducer material ( $35/ doorway) is over and above.
