Labor saved with prefinished floor?
My contractor gave me quote of $2,100 to purchase and install 300 sf of red oak in my kitchen remodel, finishing it to match an adjacent floor. Once demo started, he suggested going with a different color prefinished floor so I wouldn't have to refinish the whole house. Said the wood would be more expensive, but labor would be much less. I asked him to break down the floor budget for me before I shopped, but he never did. So I bought prefinished--paid for it myself--but I don't now know what labor should be (how much of that $2,100 I should expect to pay him). Any thoughts? I live in NE Illinois, just south of WI.
