Hardware floor installation -what involved and cost?
Would like to have good quality hardwood floor (not laminate) installed over top of tiled floor (I understand this would have to be glued?) what would it cost for the hardwood plus the installation?
thanks

i wouldnt glue a hardwood floor down. Do it the right way and tear out the tile that is there and then nail down the hardwood to the subfloor. you will get alot better finish and it will last alot longer. Install usually cost between 4 and 5 dollars a square foot. save yourself some money if you are going to have a contractor do it and tear out the tile yourself.

    My brother is an installer and he will not install real hardwoods over tile. He will laminate because it "gives". Hardwoods won’t. I think in our area it is $4.75 per sq. foot for installation.
