Default Reasonable price per sq ft for hardwood flooring and installation

I'm planning to get a basic (pre-finished) cherry oak hardwood floor installed in my living room to match what we have in the entryway and dining room. What is a reasonable price per sq ft for the flooring and installation and where's a good place to buy from, that installs it? At one place I looked into it's going to be about $9/ft or over $2K for a 240 sq ft area.

Try Hardwood Floors Raleigh, Hardwood Flooring Installers Cary, Durham, Wilmington, NC or Flooring Raleigh, Carpets, Hardwoods, Rugs, Tile, Vinyl & Laminate Cary, NC
But, I don't know how you are going to find a pre-finished floor to match something you already have. If the $9/sqft includes moving all your furniture, removal/disposal of the existing flooring, and trim pieces such as transitions and shoe molding, then it's not a bad price.

I'm assuming you have nail down flooring over a crawl space.

9 bucks sounds a little high if you're using solid pre-finshed oak, but not outrageous.

You can buy nice solid 3/4"oak flooring pre-finsihed for under $4 SF easy.

Most installers charge about $3-3.25 /SF for installation plus a little for clean/up removal.

The shoe moulding/trim peices can be expensive as well.

But it sounds like you have a really small area.

I would not pay anyone over $3/sq foot to install. Anything more and you are getting ripped of. Honestly, $2.50/sq foot is the max I would do.

Do you know anyone specific in the area who installs for $3/sq or less? If you do and have a name and number or name of a company, that would be great!

They work all over the Triangle area. Small, family owned business with over 30 years of solid reputation and expertise. Free estimates.

The best way to approach the pricing of your project is to have a reputable professional flooring company come to your house, measure the space, inspect for details, discuss the work with you, and get a turnkey price for the entire project.

Default Lumber Liquidators

I would be interested to hear from anyone who has purchased hardwood flooring from Lumber Liquidators. Are you happy with the results? Did the installers do a good job?

We were very happy with Lumber Liquidators. We bought engineered hardwood.

I was very happy with the installers, who did a great job. They were my husband and a 72-year-old neighbor (a woman) who helped him.
