Laminate Flooring Installation Costs

Once you've chosen laminate to be your next flooring material, you need to calculate the total cost of your laminate flooring installation. You will need to determine of how much square footage you'll need, consider the AC rating that will best suit your flooring location, along with the cost of underlay and laminate flooring moldings too. Making sure that there are no surprises as far as your project budget is concerned makes for a good start to a successful laminate flooring installation.

But, apart from material costs, here is a list of additional expenditures you may have to factor in during or prior of a laminate flooring installation project:

  • Furniture removal and replacement: Some professional installers include a charge to remove your furniture out of the laminate flooring installation site and also for moving it back there once the installation has been completed.

  • Taking off the old floor covering: Your previous/old floor covering may need to be removed and the debris has to be disposed properly as well. If you don't do this yourself, your installer may regard it as a cost incurring step.

  • Subfloor preparation: If your subfloor needs to be repaired or treated for unevenness, than pre-installation work may incur additional charges. Be sure to get your installer's reviews on your substrate.

  • Installation: Determine the cost per square foot to install laminate. Be aware of other criteria your installer may use to bill his or her work

  • Accessories installation: If the installation procedure requires accessories/additional material/tools to install laminate properly, be sure to find out if this step is included in the installation agreement.

There are many things you should know before considering laminate as your flooring option. This may not be a complete list of things to look into before finalizing your decision about laminate flooring, but a good conversation with your flooring installer will give you the complete information. Make sure to get an installation quote that is truly all-inclusive before the work begins. Doing your research and getting all of the costs of a laminate flooring installation upfront is the key to a happy, and successful, project.
