What’s The Cost Of Laminate Floors?
Laminate floors have come a long way since its inception and is now one of the most popular flooring options on the market. But what does the actual material cost? no solid price as it can go from $1.50 to over $6.00 per square foot. In average and from what we have seen most of our customers spend an average of $2.50- $5.00 per square foot just on the flooring. Laminate flooring is typically less expensive than engineered wood flooring or vinyl plank, but it offers a number of advantages that make it worth the investment.
How Much Will Your Installation Cost?
If the cost of removing your old carpet is $.35 per square foot, 1,000x$.35=$350.00 the cost of floor patching is $45.0 per bag. How would you know how much floor patch is need it? we estimate one 25lbs bag per every 100 square feet, so if you have 1,000 square foot project and carpet removal is involve, here’s how you would do the math.
1,000x$.35 for carpet removal, 10 bags of floor patch x$45.00=$450.00 just and the cost to install laminate flooring is $2.50 per square foot, so again you would just do 1,000×2.50=$2,500 by now we are almost done with the services you need, and we are getting closer to the final number you are looking for.
What’s next you might be wondering, well the last thing we need to complete your laminate floor installation is the shoe molding that goes on top of your new floors and against the baseboard and the cost for shoe molding installation, which we provide, install, caulk and paint is at $2.75 per linear feet. An average 1,000 square feet takes approximately 250-350 linear feet of shoe molding. So now let’s add 300x$2.75=$825.00 last but not least add another $350.0 for trash disposal fees. Okay we are now 100% done. The total labor cost on 1,000 square foot project will be right around $4,475.00
