Budgeting for the Modern Flooring Options You Want in Your Renovation

Expert Remodeling Contractors Explain Flooring Options & Costs

Replacing the floors in your home can make a significant impact on the look of your home. You can transform a room, making it look more open and more sophisticated. Depending on the materials you choose, new floors can also reduce your maintenance and save you money.

You will need to talk with your home remodeling contractor to better understand which materials will look the best in each room and which will offer you the most protection. For example, hardwood may look great in your living room, but it won’t be a good choice in your bathroom, where it will get wet and be ruined.

One of the most important things you are likely to want to discuss with your contractor is the cost. Here are a few things you’ll need to consider when budgeting for your home remodeling flooring options:

Flooring Material Costs

How much you pay for your flooring project will depend a great deal on what materials you choose. If you are going to keep your current wood floors but you just want to refinish them, you can expect to pay around $5 per square foot (an average cost – actual costs will vary). More intensive refinishing projects can cost as much as $10 per square foot.

If you are replacing your wood with new wood, you can pay $15 to $20 per square foot, depending on the type of wood. Those costs will increase dramatically if you choose luxury materials, such as marble tile. Factors like whether you need a new subfloor and the underlayment will use will also influence your costs.

Floor Replacement Costs

You will also have to pay for the labor involved in removing and replacing your floors. Some contractors will charge by the hour, and some will charge by the day. You might see rates of anywhere from $50 to $200 per hour per worker for your flooring project. Others may charge for labor by square footage, just like with materials.

Know that the lower the rate you are seeing, the more likely that you are dealing with an unexperienced and uninsured contractor. Experience and training both make a contractor more in demand, which will lead to a higher labor cost. Insurance also adds to a contractor’s overhead, and that will raise the labor rates. You want to hire a contractor who has extensive training and experience so you can be sure that you’ll be getting the best workmanship on your floors. You should also hire a contractor with insurance to protect you against any accidents.

Other Factors In the Home Remodeling Process

There are many other factors that can contribute to the cost of your flooring project. For example, if you don’t have easy parking or easy access to your flooring area, such as living in a walkup with no elevator, your contractor is going to charge more. If your contractor is going to provide complete cleanup, you’ll end up paying more. If you live in an older house and need lead abatement, you’ll end up paying more.

You’ll need to discuss these and other factors with your home, kitchen or bathroom remodeling contractor. You should be able to get an estimate that details all the costs involved with your project. Your contractor can also help you explore different options to meet a tighter budget. There are many ways to get the look you want, even if you are on a lower budget. Work closely with your contractor to talk through all of the issues that influence not only price but also the overall look, maintenance, and functionality of the floor.
