Need Cost Recommendations on Engineered Oak Flooring

We are about to go with a neighbor who is a member of Buy Direct or something like that, a wholesaler to designers and remodel people who join the club and go to centralized warehouse for lower costs to the customer. He is quoting me a price of 7.25 per square foot installed for Anderson Engineered oak flooring. He will install with glue onto leveled concrete floor in bedrooms, removing and taking away old carpet and pad, moving furniture in and out and the glue. The transition moldings and trim around baseboards are a little extra. Includes tax.

Is this a good price? Is Anderson a good floor? Can I get something cheaper that is just as good as Anderson installed for less?

Help, need to make up my mind soon. Thank you.

Go to some stores and get other bids to compare.

Engineered floor

My best advice for you is to get samples either on line or from the store, when you get it check few things what is the thickness of the top layer, try to find the thicker as you can find that way you will have the option to resend the floor few times and also what kind of finish the use to do the top layer , then look on the plywood see how many pieces was compress together ; I stopped to look for brand names the reason is that must of the many you pay is to cover there advertisement expenses , the good thing is that you always have a place to go back if something happened .
The price of $7.25 per sq sound as really fair price just asks him if he also seal the subfloor (if it’s concrete),

That would be a very good price here. Anderson wood if it's not seconds or culls is a decent product.

This thread isn't in keeping with DIY.

but, i will advise you to make sure that the price they gave you is knowing that YOU are not a member.
