Laminate wood flooring

jbly 127 18 December 7, 2015 at 06:58 PM
I just bought a 1500 sq foot condo and I want to replace the carpeting throughout it with laminate wood. I'd like to get it under a $1/sqft, but still be good quality. I searched through the history of front page deals for laminate flooring and there's rarely slickdeals on them; only once or twice they had a Trafficmaster from HD on sale for $0.57 sqft. I've been scouring HD, Lowe's, and elsewhere and the best deals I can find are just standard, small markdown "sales". Anyone know any good deals floating around there or can point me in a good direction? I'd like to avoid Lumber Liquidators because of the rep they have for buying subpar and possibly harmful laminate to hit their low prices. I trust the major retailers a little more.

Thanks.

Personally, I wouild opt to go with engineered hardwood over laminate any day. Yes it is more expensive, but it adds value to your home as opposed to laminate which generally does not for re-sale purposes. You can get engineered hardwood anywhere from $1.10 sq ft and up depending on the brand and type. Home Depot has some brands for $2 a sq ft. and I am sure you can do better online.



That said,, as a point of reference, this place sells discount flooring. No idea how reputable they are, but it will give you an idea of the prices.

Thanks. I'd love to get engineered hardwood, but I need under $1/sqft and I couldn't find anything like that on HD or Lowe's.

id focus on what flooring you like. i understand price is a constraint. but if you dont like it, then why install it.

at your price point <1$ a SF, you will be paying more in installation costs. You are probably looking at 2-4$/SF installation. so really, your 1$ flooring doesnt make that much of a difference.

if you plan to do the install yourself, you also need to factor in padding, moisture barrier, and baseboards.

Costco has laminate w padding for about 1.65$/SF. like people have mentioned earlier, not the greatest looking, but its cost effective.
