The total flooring cost depends on the flooring material used and labor factors. For example, hardwood flooring is pricier than carpet. The cost of labor depends on the project's scope. Installation on stairs and other complex projects will increase the labor cost. Below is an idea of the total cost by flooring material and straightforward installation.
Hardwood flooring is beautiful, making it a design favorite. It can be refinished for a refresh. Hardwood does not attract or retain dirt and microbes. In general, hardwood is a great return on investment. There is solid hardwood, engineered wood and various species of wood flooring to choose from.
Tile flooring is water-resistant, durable and easy to maintain. It works well with radiant floor heating installations. Tile floor installation costs vary greatly depending on the material. Some specialty tiles are much more expensive.
Carpeting provides good insulation and helps reduce noise. It is fairly low maintenance besides vacuuming and occasional carpet cleaning.
Laminate flooring is durable and low maintenance. It is a good alternative for wood, stone or tile without the high price tag.
Luxury vinyl flooring looks like hardwood or tile without the expense. It is waterproof and easy to clean.
