Amber picks up her phone and unlocks it. “Actually, I’ve been doing some digging into the cost of flooring. I found a contractor in Tucson who has the answer on his website’s blog. He does the cost of flooring per square foot too, so we can get an idea of how much we’d need to invest.”

The Flooring Cost Factors

Higher-end materials like natural stone will cost more. The actual material costs more and it can be harder to work with. This means contractors need to pay their team more for the harder work.

The more floor you replace the more of an investment it is. This is because it takes more materials and time, both of which drive up costs.

Any damages found under the flooring will need fixing first. Water damage can be a real problem. Any damages need to be taken care of first or it can hurt your new flooring.

Finally, there’s the pattern you choose. The patterns are straight and angled lays. This means the material runs in straight lines or it has an angle to it. Angled lays cost more because they create more wasted material and it’s a more difficult process.

Since angled lays waste more material, more needs to be bought to make up for that shortage. Then because it’s more difficult to do, contractors need to pay their teams more.
