Are you trying to decide whether to have pre-finished hardwoods installed or site-finished hardwoods installed? This information could help you with that decision! We recently bid a customer’s project for these two service options. They wanted to see the price difference between both, pre-finished installation and/or site-finished installation. The total square footage of their space was 800. (The following bids are based on 800 square feet.) In this study, we found that on average, site-finished hardwood flooring services are cheaper than pre-finished hardwood flooring services. Choosing to have site-finished flooring will save you up to $2,000!
For those DIY folks out there, here is just the cost for the hardwood itself: $6409 for pre-finished and $2400 for raw (site-finished).
For those who will be hiring a professional for this service, here’s the price to expect:
Pre Finished hardwood
Installation Labor = $2900
Hardwood = $6409 for 800 sqft
Site Finished hardwood
Installation & Refinish = $3700
Materials & Finish = $300
Hardwood = $2400 for 800 sft
