Just wondering if I am being 'done' in the quotes I am receiving...
I'm getting prices for supply & install of standard grade 80mm solid blackbutt timber floorboards finished with a water based finish (over the top of existing timber floorboards) to an apartment in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
We are removing the existing floor covering (carpet) ourselves.
I understand the timber supply should cost about $60 / sq m and I was estimating about another $60 / sq m total for installation, sanding, polishing, finishing etc.
I realise there may be some add on due to specifics of delivery issues etc but am I being unreasonable in expecting the quotes to come in at around $120 sq m all up?
Any recommendations of contractors/ tradespeople would be appreciated!
