Flooring in your Project
Working on a new project for your home remodel? Don’t forget to think about flooring in your project. Whether it is in a bathroom, a kitchen or you entire home, flooring is a major decision that will impact not just your budget but the look of your home.
The impact on your budget can make or break your project. First, you must decide on the type of flooring for your project, whether it is tile, or hardwood. The difference between one product over the other can be thousands of dollars. Simple manufactured wood flooring or laminate that snaps together without much effort can be much cheaper than Brazilian wood as an example. (Follow this link for Species list); Though both are installed in the same manner, only one requires more attention at installation time than the other.
Adhesives and Padding
From the sub flooring and Special Glues that you need for hardwood, to the actual type of wood, every step requires an expert’s attention on your flooring needs. Is your floor even or does it need filling? Is one floor raised higher than another, requiring additional plywood? Many considerations before you start. Also, is there existing flooring to remove? this can be time consuming depending on what type of flooring exists, again another expense consideration.
The same goes for stone flooring. The varieties of stone flooring range from manufactured tile, ceramic or other to actual stone; travertine, granite or other natural stone. Here the cost does not diminish with the type of stone because there is some manufactured product that can be more expensive than even natural stone. It all depends on the look you are trying to achieve for you flooring project.
Carpeting also requires attention to detail. From the thickness of the padding to the type of carpet you are installing. Even when the carpet does not have a design, the grain needs to match along areas where they join together. If you are carpeting large areas with a patterned carpet, the material yardage will increase.
Cost of Flooring Material
The price you’ll pay for material will vary from store to store and from region to region. Sometimes it is worth looking around and spending the time to find deals. Particularly when the renovation is for a small area. The larger the project, the more the expense. It is at this point where you must decide how far you want your money to go. As you increase your square footage, your expense for “waste” material also increases, average waste material is about 10% of each area/project.
The cost of material and intricacy of project is daunting when you are doing it yourself. The cost can increase quickly without a well thought out project.
