The Vinyl Floor Quote

January 12th, 2012 at 05:47 am

It's freezing here! I can't wait for the wind to stop blowing. The furnace is definitely getting it's winter workout.

We received our first quote for new vinyl flooring. My original estimate was based on the wrong price per square foot and I didn't know what the extras would be. Total quote $2,367.43. Whoa. A bit more than my original $800 estimate. I was really hoping for less than $1,500.

We will get another quote or two. This one includes our kitchen which may not really need to be done, but we were hoping to get all the vinyl to match. Right now we have three patterns.

The extra costs included $150 per toilet. We have three. Moving 4 appliances was $120. Removing and replacing quarter round is another $139. It all adds up. I could likely move appliances and handle the quarter round, but not the toilets. Wish DH could be here to do those, but he won't be.

Again, we'll get another quote and consider dropping the kitchen vinyl. I think we'll head out to another store or two today...but I don't really want to when it is so cold!!

Did it get colder where you are?

    It's cold where I am! We have had a dry winter with hardly any rain...definately not the norm for the Pacific NW. The wind kicked up yesterday too which makes it even colder....we are hovering around 35 to 40 degrees these days.

    $150 per toilet to do what? Take them out and put them back in? That is so easy to do, you can shave $450 off right there by doing it yourself!

    @thrift, yes to remove and replace. I have never removed or replaced a toilet before. All three will be out of service on the day of install. I need to know that one will work. I believe you that it is probably easy...I've seen it done on TV. I'll think about it. I suppose if I could remove all of them and replace two, but pay for one to be reinstalled. I'd at least have the certainty that one would be back in working order fairly quickly! That might save me $375.

    I'd be hesitant to move the toilets myself too, but we know Thrift's remodeling prowess!
