    Default Need Pricing Idea for Floor Install

    I do a lot of handyman work for friends and family, I usually do it for free (as long as food/beer is included hahah) or very little money. But I have been asked by someone to install a Pergo floor after they saw the one I did for a friend. I have no idea where to even begin on pricing, I'm not a "true" professional, but I can do the job just as good (maybe not as fast but regardless), I have all my own tools etc.

    I was thinking $0.70 per sq. foot, does that sounds about right? I want it to come in under contractors b/c thats why the person is hiring me. It's not a huge or complicated job either.

    TIA!

    My buddy's family owns a flooring business and he said that they would normally charge $5-$8 a foot.

    Is that just for labor or is that including material or for a true hardwood floor (nailing down each board)? This is just pergo (tongue/groove system)

    5 - 8$ a foot is with material. If you want to do labor you can do anywhere from 1.50 to 3$ a foot.

    Labor would be around $3 for anyone decent. I recently put down heart pine throughout and that was the cost.

    Ask some of the employees at Home Depot, they carry Pergo, I usually find someone there that has a contractor background for advice, plus they deal with contractors all the time. They've helped me out many times with these type of projects. My favorite part of this kind of work is it usually gives me an excuse to buy a new power tool.

    $2.00 a square foot to install Pergo laminate would be a fair price.

    If you go to Home Depot for your materials and new tools, see if you can score a 10% off coupon, I've saved a couple hundred $ with those before.
