 Property Value

A new floor makes a home more attractive, and may actually add value to your home. Natural hardwood floors have a wow factor for home buyers. So if you’re looking to increase the resale price of your home, think about your return on the investment in new flooring when you consider the flooring cost.

 Installation and Supplemental Costs

Beyond the price of flooring materials, a flooring project involves other costs that you should consider when planning your budget. Be sure to include costs for:

  • Removal and disposal of your old floor
  • Sub-floor preparation (any leveling or installation of new plywood to install the new floor over)
  • Installation costs (labor, adhesives, underlayment, etc.)
  • Required trims and moldings

 DIY Installation

You may be able to save some money if you do your own preparation and installation, but keep in mind that if you're a DIYer, you'll need to read and follow the Armstrong installation instructions carefully. You should also consider the costs associated with purchasing or renting any specialty tools required to install your flooring.
