    Labour cost for wooden floor 15th Jul 17 at 6:49 AM
    I am planning to lay engineered wood floor in a room (24 sqaure metre). I have been quoted £375 for labour...Is that a fair charge? I am in the midlands

    How long have the said it will take. £200 a day is a good starting point.

    We've just had 33 square metres fitted - fiddly hall way, not so fiddly lounge and dining room.

    It took 1 chap 3 full days days ( 8 to 6) and he charged us £900 - but that included new skirting boards throughout and all the nails etc.

    We could have got someone cheaper, but he came highly recommended - and he's done a superb job.

    Sorry, but we're not in the midlands.

    Between £15-£20 psm is about right.
    Bulletproof
