The cost of your project will vary widely depending on several different factors, including the location of your home, the type of floor you choose, and even the flooring contractor you hire. Before you start calling contractors, take a look at these common floor and carpet upgrades and their average costs. The best floor for a basement is vinyl, which can and should be installed as a floating floor to allow changes in concrete caused by humidity and temperature. Take a look at the cost breakdown, based on the average percentage of space occupied by different types of rooms, the average square footage of those spaces based on the average home size, and the typical floor costs associated with each.
Removing and removing old floors, asbestos testing and remediation (if your home was built before the early 1980s), and mold remediation are also important cost factors to consider.
