My wife and are currently in the process of getting timber floors installed in downstairs and the staircase of our townhouse and new carpet upstairs.
Carpet in lounge and staircase. Tiling in Dining, Kitchen, Toilet and Entrance way.
Total downstairs sqm including stairs app 60sqm
The Situation So Far
Have had a few quotes.
- Company 'A' quoted "Supply and lay 1-strip prefinished 133mm wide Blackbutt Australiana engineered floor" for approx $10,000 downstairs area + staircase.
- Company 'B' quoted "Supply and lay Distressed engineered flooring to downstairs and staircase + "new carpet upstairs" in hallway and 3 bedrooms for approx $9300.
Why is Company A much more expensive?
Both companies have made us aware of the varied floor prep costs. From $0 to $7500 or more. Don't really understand why such a variance?
Do these prices and quotes seem accurate for market value?
Since this is our first reno project together we wanted to get some other opinions from more experienced people.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I'll ask the real obvious question
1-strip prefinished 133mm wide Blackbutt Australiana engineered floor
is it the same as company b's floor???
Being engineered do you mean floating floor? If so then 60sqm of 1 strip is approx $100 (or more)
3 Strip could be $70.....

Is this floor quoted to lay over a concrete floor or partical board floor.
Blackbutt Standard Grade
80mm x 19mm Solid Tongue & Groove Timber Flooring
Supplied, Laid, Sanded & Polished, on existing particle board.
would work out including waste $6200 over partical board or $7,100 over batterns if layed on concrete

The most likely cause of your timber swelling (parquetry?) is either a plumbing leak or carelessly leaving water on floors after use or both. Without seeing, i am ignoring…

Thank you. Do I use timber floorboards for stairs or do people use timber treads? Or is both the same?
