We’ll also discuss additional factors that can influence the overall price and offer tips on choosing the right flooring and installer for your project. Let’s break down the factors that influence the price and give you a clear picture of what to expect.

The Basics of Hardwood Flooring Costs

Several elements affect the overall cost of installing hardwood flooring. These include the type of hardwood, the quality of the materials, the complexity of the installation, and the labour charges.

Types of Hardwood Flooring

  1. Solid Hardwood Flooring – This is made from a single piece of wood and offers a classic look and durability. It can be sanded and refinished multiple times, making it a long-lasting option.
  2. Engineered Hardwood Flooring – This consists of multiple layers of wood veneer, offering stability and resistance to moisture changes. It’s often a bit cheaper than solid hardwood but still provides a beautiful finish.

Cost Breakdown

  1. Materials – The cost of hardwood materials can vary significantly. Solid hardwood flooring typically ranges from $5 to $10 per square foot, while engineered hardwood might cost between $3 and $8 per square foot.
  2. LabourProfessional installation is crucial for a flawless finish. Labour costs in Calgary usually range from $3 to $5 per square foot. This includes preparation, laying the flooring, and finishing touches.
  3. Additional Costs – Don’t forget to factor in costs for underlayment, trims, mouldings, and any subfloor repairs. These can add another $1 to $3 per square foot.

Factors Influencing the Cost

  1. Type of Wood – Exotic woods like Brazilian cherry or mahogany will cost more than domestic species like oak or maple.
  2. Quality of Materials – Higher-grade materials have fewer imperfections but are usually more expensive.
  3. Complexity of Installation – Labour costs will increase if your space has many corners, odd shapes, or requires intricate patterns.
  4. Prep Work – Removing old flooring, repairing subfloors, or addressing moisture issues can add to the overall cost.

Why Invest in Hardwood Flooring?

Despite the costs, engineered or solid hardwood flooring is a worthwhile investment. It enhances the beauty and value of your home and offers longevity that other flooring options can’t match. Hardwood flooring is also easy to clean, hypoallergenic, and can improve indoor air quality.
