Hardwood Flooring Install Questions
Just over a year ago, I was diagnosed with asthma. Unfortunately, I had already purchased a home with carpets. Now, I need to get rid of the carpets and replace them with hardwood floors. I called a contractor, and he gave me an estimate of over $6,000 for labor only. He's charging about $8 for each square foot, and by his calculation, I have over 1300 sq. feet that will need flooring.
My questions to the forum are: Is this a fair quote? I cannot afford to pay for materials and labor at this rate. Also, are there any other options? Should I go with Lowe's? They have a special for the next two weeks of 0.99 per square feet for install.
