### What will be the installation cost of laminate flooring?/Calculating the cost of laminate flooring for a room.

Before going through the calculation steps, let us understand the different layers installed one over the other in laminate floorings.

Market rate:

Cost of AC4 8mm. thk. material  👉    INR 80/- to 100/- per sq. ft.

Cost of polythene sheet                👉    INR 3/- to 5/- per sq. ft.

Cost of 3mm. thk. foam               👉    INR 5/- to 7/- per sq. ft.

Labor cost for installation            👉    INR 19/- to 27/- per sq. ft.

Note:

The material rate varies depending on the material brand & geographical location.

Calculation:

Now,

Let us calculate the installation cost of AC4 grade laminate flooring for a room of size 12' ☓16'.

Area of room

= [12' ☓16']

= 192 sq ft.

For the calculation purpose, let us consider the average market rate of labor & materials.

1. The total cost of a polythene sheet

= [room area ☓ rate/sq ft.]

= [192 sq ft. ☓ INR 4/- per sq ft.]  = INR 768/-

2. The total cost of foam

= [room area ☓ rate/sq ft.]

= [192 sq ft. ☓ INR 6/- per sq ft.]  = INR 1,152/-

3. The total cost of AC4 laminate

= [room area ☓ rate/sq ft.]

= [192 sq ft. ☓ INR 90/- per sq ft.]  = INR 17,280/-

4.  The total cost of labor for installation

= [room area ☓ rate/sq ft.]

= [192 sq ft. ☓ INR 23/- per sq ft.]  = INR 4,416/-

------------------------------

The total installation cost of laminate flooring = INR 23, 616/-

Now, let us put the laminate flooring cost in a table format.

Note: 1. To get the accurate cost of laminate flooring, insert the ongoing market rate of labor & material in your country.

Installation cost per sq ft.

= [total cost ÷ room area]

= [23,616 ÷ 192]

= INR 123/- per sq ft.

👀. If the laminate flooring work is handed over to any contractor, then you have to add 15% extra for his profit.

= [flooring cost/sq ft. + 15% of flooring cost/sq ft.]

= [ 123/- + ( 15 ÷ 100) ×  123/-]

= [123 + 18.45]

INR 142/- per sq ft.

Thank you for going through these calculation steps. Have a good day 😄.
