There are a number of factors that determine wood flooring costs. The first thing to consider is the cost of wood flooring itself. Havwoods has nine different wood floor collections that vary in cost based upon the following:
Wood grade: This determines the amount of knotting and part of the tree in which the wood comes from.
Wood finish: The type of finish used on the wood will play a part in the wood flooring cost depending on if it's oiled, lacquered, hardwax, etc.
At Havwoods, we work with a network of highly recommended floor installation professionals instead of having our own installation team. This means that the cost of installation will be separate from the wood flooring cost. Here are a few things to keep in mind when getting a quote for wood floor installation:
Size of space: The bigger the space is, the higher the cost of installation will be as it will take longer and potentially require more labor.
Removal of old floor: Depending on the condition of the existing floor or subfloor, you may choose to keep it, which keeps costs lower. Removing an old floor, or altering or replacing a subfloor will likely increase the installation costs.
Type of wood floor profile: The way the wood floor pieces connect to each other may affect the cost of wood flooring installation. We have an easy-to-install click system collection that is easy to connect, making it time efficient and ultimately, less costly.
Complexity of design: The design of a pattern can affect the wood flooring cost - simple planks may not require as much time to install as a beautiful custom wood floor shape might.
Havwoods wood floor products require different installation methods, depending on the product.
Certain floors can be glued down, which will require a sufficient amount of glue for the square footage of the floor. Floating floors require underlay, which is a soft membrane that is laid underneath the wood floor to help provide stability and sounds absorption.
