Few weeks ago toliet water supply burst, flooded my floors. I have laminate wood. Insurance company is going to replace the entire wood flooring that extends through about half the house.
Got a great deal on some real wood flooring.
Flooring company is now wanting to charge about $500 more than the cost of their quote for installation just to pull up the old flooring (Which is jus laminate wood. It's not glued down at all. You can yank it up with one hand.)
Which is funny. Because the NEW flooring -is- glue down. So that makes their estimate even odder.
So lets say the quote for putting the new flooring down is $800. The quote for the removal of the old flooring would be $1300. These aren't real numbers. Just an example. I could pull up all the flooring myself but..umm.. I am busy with work and really, my insurance company gave me money for someone else to deal with that.
Is this reasonable? Is pulling up flooring really more expensive than laying it?
Basically I was expecting the tear up of the old flooring to cost like....a tenth of what they quoted. And according to my insurance quote..it should be.
