Cost of installing a new floor

Usually, companies that sell floor coverings also offer installation services For more information about floors, check out the following articles: "Choosing your hardwood floors: the materials" and"Choosing your hardwood floors: characteristics", "How to install floating floor", "How to choose your floating floor: the characteristics".
Cost of installing a subfloor layer
Note that a subfloor often takes the form of plywood panels, of fiberboard panels or chipboard panels. Subflooring layers contribute to soundproofing and thermal insulation, in addition to blocking humidity and limiting the proliferation of mould. Therefore, your flooring material will avoid experiencing premature deterioration.
Know that it is sometimes possible to keep the old subfloor, but replacing it is often recommended. In that sense, it will be important to ask the contractors that you meet about the cost of removing and installing a new subfloor.
