How much does flooring installation cost?

Mar 20, 2018

The average rate for a flooring installation project can vary extensively depending on numerous factors. These factors and others are discussed in more depth below.

Considerations

Repairs and Preparation

Whether your floor needs repairs or not can have a direct impact on the cost of your flooring installation. If your old flooring was extensively damaged there is a chance that the underlay beneath the flooring was damaged too.

Sturdy underlay is essential to laying a floor that will stand that test of time. If the underlay has been damaged or is out of date you will need to repair it first. In this case, you should expect the total cost of your flooring installation project to run a bit higher due to time and the need for additional materials.

To cut down on costs take care of general preparation first. If you are able to move all of your furniture out of the room, your flooring installer won’t have to. That way when they arrive they can immediately get to work on installing your new floor.

Type of Flooring

The type of flooring you plan to install is another factor that will influence the cost. There is a different way to install each type of flooring from laminate to tile to hardwood and even carpeting. Price will thus depend on the difficulty of the project and your professional’s familiarity with your particular type flooring.

Flooring Material
Median Hourly Rate For Installation
Carpet
£17
Tile
£20
Vinyl or Linoleum
£18
Hardwood
£20
Cost of Materials

The cost of your flooring materials can have a large impact on the overall cost. When you plan the budget for your project make sure to be mindful of the cost of different flooring types. Not only do flooring costs vary substantially between different materials, like wood and laminate but they can also differ within the same category of material.

For instance, wood flooring cost will vary based on which type of wood you choose to install. Cherry and walnut have a higher price per square metre than pine or even bamboo. If you’re on a tight budget be mindful of this. Cost effective woods like pine and bamboo will still create a stunning aesthetic.

When it comes to laminate flooring cost, your material prices can also vary. There are several different styles of laminate flooring including realistic wood laminate, glued laminate and pre-glued laminate. To find the best flooring for your home it is best to shop around and compare the different aesthetics with your expectations for your budget.

Where To Install It

The area in your home where you would like to install your flooring can also impact the price. If your room is a rectangular shape installation will be far easier than in an oddly shaped room or winding hallway.

Time

On average it takes around 8.75 hours to complete a flooring installation project. However, if you need to repair the underlay or you plan to install flooring throughout your entire home this could take quite a bit longer. The best way to determine how long your project is likely to take is to speak with your professional. That way they can incorporate any repairs and the square meterage of your floor into the estimate.

Location

The location where you live will understandably influence your flooring installer’s rates. If you live in an area where the cost of living and transportation tend to be higher, you should expect your installer to charge higher rates as well.

Experience

Is your flooring installer just starting out or do they have years of experience behind them? Flooring installers who are just starting out will be focused on building their professional reputation. As a result, their rates may be more cost-effective than seasoned professionals.

However, seasoned professionals can also tackle your flooring project efficiently as a result of their years of experience.

Both new and seasoned professional can prove to be a good choice for your flooring project. In the end, the best way to determine which professional is right for you is to ask for references.

On Bidvine you can view reviews from previous clients on the professional's profile. This will provide you with an idea of the areas they specialise in and whether their skill set is a good fit with your project.

Summary

Installing new flooring is an excellent way to update and maintain your home. A new floor can completely transform the aesthetic of a room bringing it up to date.

When you hire an expert they'll tackle any repairs with efficiency. Then they'll install your new floor with professionalism. Before you know it you'll be enjoying a top-notch new floor that all your neighbours will be jealous of.

So what are you waiting for? Hire a flooring installer and refresh the aesthetic of your home today!

Audrius did a top job in installing engineered wood flooring in the flat. Not only is he a very considerate and warm human being, his work is at a great standard and quality. He spent five days with us, in which he worked amazingly hard, was always punctual and kept us aware of everything that was going on. We were very lucky to have found him and cannot recommend him enough. Thanks Audrius for our new floors!

Tom is the best, came on time for the quotes. Very good value for money. He is the best builder I have ever worked with, did painting, electrics, fixed a whole new bathroom, put in an AC. He was always punctual, kept the place tidy, no job was too small and the ultimate perfectionist. With Tom I now have my dream house. Thank you so much. I highly recommend him.

Adrian was professional, tidy, and did a fantastic job of plastering our hallway wall. He showed up at the agreed upon time, and charged what was initially quoted. Additionally, he was kind enough to answer a number of questions we had about our flat and its general upkeep; he's a genuinely friendly person and was a pleasure to have around. We recommend him without reservation.
