Anyone recently installed hardwood or laminate flooring and can recommend an affordable company to purchase it from? Our carpet has seen better days and our youngest has horrible allergies, so we've been considering different flooring. Would prefer to do it ourselves to save money on the labor! If anyone could recommend a place to purchase from or even a material they enjoyed working with, I'd appreciate it!!

I've been getting laminate from Costco. I can't say how durable it is yet, but it's been easy to put down and looks great.

3/4 inch real hard wood tongue and groove at home depot for $1.99 a sq ft to $2.72. Lumber Liquidators online and in stores the same. Great quality also and easy to install.

Builders Surplus in Haltom City. We purchased or laminate flooring there a few years ago.

Keep in mind that laminate is hardwood's ugly step-sister. I only used laminate because in this housing market and in our neighborhood, installing hardwood flooring wouldn't be cost effective or get much return if we were to sell. Base your flooring choices on what your neighborhood will sustain. Hardwood flooring is always the best choice.

I worked for a flooring company for a week at the start of the summer. I was supposed to work all summer but pinched my sciatic nerve and had to quit.

Moderator cut: too new tom make specific recs - read the TOS They buy all of their material from Builders Surplus or Lumber Liquidators (can't remember which one) and install at a good price. They are very picky which results in a great job. I remember one time a laminate dropped and a TINY chip in the corner which no one would notice was there and they pulled up about 30 laminates once they noticed it just to remove the chipped piece.

I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good flooring install.

We just bought and had installed Engineered wood flooring. It's real wood, and is designed with the quick lock system similar to laminate flooring. Ours is Elm, 4 3/4" wide. No nailing or glue required for installation.

We looked at several retailers, and got the best price at HD, @ $2.98 sq. ft. It's high gloss, with a 3/8" layer of finished elm on each plank, and the wood grain is really nice patterned. The two installers were done in less than 2 1/2 hours after arrival, installing about 350 sq ft in our living room and hallway.

A nice, attractive product with a 30 year warranty.

My parents used Lumber Liquidators and installed it themselves in their house and they loved it but it was pricey because they had a large area but of course they saved on labor.

I used Carpet Mills Outlet in Southlake for my condo and had hardwood installed on the entire bottom floor. I was very pleased with the price and quality of the wood as well as the labor and install. I know people say not to glue directly on slab but that is what they did and after 9 years, it still looked great and I had no problems.
