flooring cost estimate


working through some numbers and curious what I should expect. I got a quote to install 450 sq ft of a premium composite vinyl tile.

The contractor that came out also said that the vinyl tile would be best installed over a 1/4" subfloor.

His total estimate for everything including the vinyl tile and subfloor was $9.50 a sq ft

Is that reasonable estimate?

For removal of the old floor,new underlayment,installation and the product itself--and new shoe molding--and disposal of the old flooring?

It doesn't sound out of line---it is always wise to get another quote,if you know another installer with skills---
