The tools and materials needed for the installation are based on indoor laminate floor installation. If exotic laminate floors are to be installed, or if the installation pattern is sophisticated, prices will increase and require an onsite estimate visit with a contractor. The laminate floor installation prices given by the ServiceWhale Cost Estimator are NOT official quotes from contractors. Get a custom quote instantly from a local, prescreened contractor here

    prices are estimated based on ServiceWhale historic pricing for regular installation of new laminate floors.
