How Much Will Bamboo Flooring Cost You?
Bamboo flooring is one of the more economical choices for your home remodel. If you like the look of hard wood but are looking to save money while reducing your carbon footprint, it is really the best way to go. Here is some pricing information that can help you when shopping around for bamboo.
On average, bamboo flooring tends to cost between $4 and $6 per square foot. This pricing usually pertains to DIY bamboo flooring. The size of the room you are looking to floor with bamboo will definitely affect your costs. For example, a 12×12 area can cost you between $575 and $865 on average.
More expensive types of bamboo flooring include exotic or prefinished bamboo. These can run you as much as $13 per square foot.
On top of this, there could also be some additional costs for your bamboo flooring. A border or custom pattern can add a dollar or two per square foot. Flooring an oddly-shaped room can also cost a little more. This is because you may not be able to get an exact measurement and will have to overestimate the amount of bamboo you will need for the room.
Not to mention, if you have to first get rid of old flooring before installing new bamboo flooring, this can also increase costs. However, you can always save money by learning how to take out old flooring yourself. If not, you can hire a contractor. Just remember that they will charge you for moving furniture if you have not done so yourself.
