Laminate Flooring
 
I bought laminate flooring that needs to be installed. What would be a fair price to pay? I am not sure, so guidance would be nice.

$2 per sq. feet should give you good quality laminate when on sale.... some good brand sometimes go lower for whatever reason... avoid non-brand name product with real low price .... they are crap 99% of time...(don't just look at thickness..other spec...etc... it can still be crap when it is 1" thick) . this is from Canadian experience... for US I imagine price is a bit better.

Sounds like he's already bought the stuff and was asking about labor.

If it's snap together, you can do it yourself...so easy a child could do it.

Glue together, $2-4 per sq. ft. wouldn't be unheard of...but that's HERE...not there. Get some bids, call around. Friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc.

Here in Toronto H.Depot charges $2.45 per sq.ft.

There are also other factors involved in terms of the actual price quote. Like the difficulty of the room. Example: Bathroom: the toilet has to be removed and replaced with most manufacturer's floors. Kitchen and bath installs generally require silicone caulk be used around all perimeter edges or other exposed edges, etc...Certain factors can add to the actual sf pricing....

Atlantic has a good approach, but to refine your answer, I think more details should be supplied. I assume you bought a roll, becasue if they were tiles you would not be here. Based upon what Atlantic said, I would say $2.00 and up per square foot based upon what I have heard.

A roll of what???:confused1:

The type of laminate in question is sorta like "false" hardwood flooring. Comes in pieces about 4' x 8". They either snap together or glue together.
