cost to replace flooring per square ft

Asked by Scapes, San Francisco, CA Tue Jul 17, 2012

Help the community by answering this question:


I have seen flooring for as little as .99 per square foot,
but you know what they say about getting what you pay for.

If you hit a medium, you would pay about $3 sqft and you can probably add $2-$3 for installation.

We got PERGO in our last house and we loved it; it was easy to keep clean, didn't dent, and showed no wear after 4 years. I highly recommend.
The story goes that Europeans would put Pergo in their rental, and take it with them when they moved.

Hey there Scapes,

A bit of a tough one to answer considering the different types of flooring. I would suggest calling a couple different flooring companies to speak to some of their reps and hopefully set up a free consultation.

If you're looking for referrals on contractors that can help you further I am happy to help.

Good luck!

As mentioned below, it depends on what type of flooring. I would recommend NOT using any kind of laminate - it may be cheaper but it looks it. We have an outstanding flooring guy who can install 3/4" oak and stain whatever color you want for about $10 per sq ft. If you want a referral contact info is below.

I think if you are putting new Hardwood floors in you are looking at closer to $6-7 per sq ft.

Good luck,

It would depend on the material and a number of other factors like the condition of the sub-floor and what is in place now.
Why don't you call a flooring company and ask the same question, at least that way you can be asked all the pertinent questions to get a ball park number.

What type of flooring are you going to use? Between carpeting, hardwood, tile, marble or tempered glass and heated or not, you could be looking at between $2-50/sqft for material and labor.
