Looking for the absolute cheapest flooring


dirt is fine.... but.... depending on what rooms it will be used in, i'd recommend el cheapo 12x12" floor tiles from your local dollar store. they won't last long, of course, but look nice new! in a wet spot, (kitchen/bath/laundry) get linoleum rolled stuff and cut and glue.
hope this helps!

I was going to suggest floor paint.

You can install 50 square yards of new flooring for $35 per gallon.

You can always check the remnant sections at your local retailers as well.

Have you ever thought about doing brown craft paper and polyurethane? It is time consuming and detailed work, but when finished, it looks like rock!

Did you thank all those fine people for trying to help you? NO! You just ruined the whole thread by deleting your original comment. Was that smart? NO!

Looking for the absolute cheapest flooring


Hi,

I deleted my original comment when I thought I still had no responses. The fact is I no longer needed to know the answer to this question, so I didn't want to bother people with a useless discussion. Unfortunately I didn't realize that the Title of the post could not be edited (I had deleted that too), so people still sent in comments.

Thanks for all your input, anyway.

The original question, for anyone still reading, was posted because we've purchased a newly constructed home with unfinished floors and the bank was requiring they be done before they can release the loan. We had hardwood floors on order that would be put in within two weeks, but the bank was insisting the floors be finished in 72 hours. Hence my question on what the cheapest solution would be. The square footage being about 1500, the best we could do with remnant carpets and no padding was still about $2.5K. All that only to be ripped out in two weeks. Luckily, the bank decided to give us more time, so the question is no longer relevant. :-)
