Bruce Hardwood Flooring Average Costs #
Hardwood flooring can be expensive, but it's an investment in your home that should last for generations. Pricing for Bruce hardwood floor varies based on many factors: the type of flooring you select, the square footage of your rooms and optional features like trim and moldings.
- Bruce engineered floors typically cost $4 to $6 per square foot, not including installation.
- Bruce solid wood floors start at about $5 per square foot, not including installation.
In addition, budget around $3 to $5 per square foot for installation and about $2 per square foot for removal and haul away of your old flooring. If your subfloor is concrete, you'll also need to add a plywood subfloor to create a moisture barrier, which will add a significant chunk to the total purchase price.
Let's say you're planning to install Bruce engineered maple wood in a 15x15 living room.
- According to Armstrong's pricing estimator, materials only would run about $1,700 to $2,000.
- Professional installation, including building a plywood subfloor and carpet removal, would increase the total cost to about $2,400 to $2,700.
Outfitting the same room with engineered cherry would run about $2,100 to $2,500 for materials and $2,900 to $3,200 for materials and installation.
