Flooring costs


Recommended Posts

I am coming to the nitty gritty of my build, just want to know the price of manpower for tiling floors plank style porcelain tiles in Duramat, what is the price per square metre for tiling only as I have supplied all materials

further I would also like to know the price for laying down engineered oak to be glued down also per metre square?

thank you

I run a tiling business and pay 22m2 and 3.50 m2 matting 1 charge 31m2 for planks 

They are site rates 

You may be up to 40m2 for a one man ban outfit 

 

I tiled our own in planks 158m2 

It took me 5 days But don’t get on the tools as much as I did a few years back

We’re just about to pay £2750 inc. Ivory grout, flexible adhesive and sealer to lay 55sqm. (£50/sqm) plus £800 (£14.55/sqm) for the same area to have decoupling matting which we apparently need between the PIR UFH boards and limestone 600x900 tiles. 


think the tiling cost is ok but the decoupling matting is a bit pricy?

The matting price is ridiculous 

Id expect one man to seal and Matt 55m2 for lunchtime

Definitely 

5 litres of SBR bonding agent 

Mixed 5-1 with water 

Rolled onto the floor 

Day before if pos

5 mil notched trowel 

Stanley knife and tape 

Get the whole room first then roll the matting up running a pencil line along the edge as you take them up So that you can put your adhesive down in narrow sections 

 

We normally use a rubber grouting float to flatten it down 

 

I put two sections down on ours and my wife did the rest over two afternoons
