How Much Does it Cost to Install Hardwood Floors?
Engineered Wood (Float Installation)
INSTALLATION: $3.50 PER SQ. FT.
MATERIALS: $2.40 PER SQ. FT.
UNDERLAYMENT: $0.50 PER SQ. FT.
Estimates for both the flooring and the installation labor are generally lower than solid wood.
Unlike traditional hardwood, engineered wood can be installed below grade in basements and over concrete subfloors.
Limited Resurface Options: Unlike solid wood, engineered wood typically cannot be resurfaced multiple times. It depends on the thickness of its natural wood layer.
AVERAGE TOTAL COST: $7.80 PER SQUARE FOOT
INSTALLATION: $4 PER SQ. FT.
MATERIALS: $3.80 PER SQ. FT.
Longer Lifespan: Nail installation of solid wood is praised by home renovators for its permanence. When installed properly, the boards are secure for decades.
Replaceable Boards: If a board gets damaged, it can be pried off and replaced without altering the surrounding floorboards.
Higher Cost: Solid wood installed with nails is more expensive than engineered wood options that "float" above the subfloor.
Factors Affecting the Overall Cost
Solid wood flooring installation costs can vary quite drastically. Domestically grown options are more affordable, while imported and exotic hardwood have higher costs.
American Wood Examples: Red oak, pine, hickory and maple.
Imported Wood Examples: Brazilian Cherry Wood, Sakura (Japanese cherry blossom), and Tigerwood from South and Central America.

Solid hardwood flooring is designed for installation on or above ground level. It can be installed by nailing boards to a subfloor, or it can be glued down over concrete and other hard surfaces. It can also be stapled to an existing wood subfloor. Hardwood flooring can even offer a smooth transition to rooms with other types of flooring, like tile or carpeting.
Yes, trim and molding are an important part of a hardwood flooring installation project. These strips fill in gaps and create transitions from floor to wall and room to room.
Yes, underlayment is a vital part of any flooring project. Underlayment protects your floor from moisture and provides a sound barrier. Our professional team of hardwood flooring installers will help you choose the right underlayment for your new floor.
To preserve the beauty of your floor, sweep or dry mop as needed. Clean up spills immediately. Periodically clean the surface with hardwood floor cleaner by simply spraying and mopping the floor.
