Hi,

I am wondering how much does it cost per sq. ft to add "American OAK 5" Hardwood flooring in Austin. My builder charges about $8/sq.ft.

Thanks

Hard to help without a manufacturer. However, if it is a good grade of flooring, that's not crazy. If you don't like the pricing, install it yourself for around $2-$3 Psf less.

One thing to consider is if you order online there is no sales tax on the wood. Online prices are running about 4.63/sq ft (bruce american 5). that would put install at about 3/sq ft which is reasonable

also consider the flooring that has to be removed. If tile is standard it will take some labor to remove that tile that the builder installs.

From what I've seen and paid, that's a reasonable price, if it's good quality hardwood.
