Questions & Answers

How much does it cost to have the flooring professionally installed

How much does it cost to have the flooring professionally installed
Asked by: Susan
Depends on square footage needed. If it's laminate flooring, the baseboards will need to be removed so the floor will lay under them for a nice clean look. Some will just throw on some quarter round to cover the flooring. That's fine also. I installed about 1100 square feet in my house. The cost will vary on how many square feet is being installed and the prep work that will have to be done.

2.75 in. x 9.25 in. x 0.50 in. Black Universal Tapping Block is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 122.

Although it does help with vinyl plank installation, it breaks and chips apart very easily. My husband is an expert at installing flooring so it wasn't "operator difficulty". The material used to make this block is too brittle to use for its intended purpose...tapping against. He was really careful not to hit it too hard but just hard enough to lock the flooring pieces together. The tapping block still chipped off, especially at one end (see photo). I didn't research this tool before ordering it with the Lifeproof vinyl from Home Depot because I thought, since it was a recommended tool, it would work just fine. He did manage to finish the floor with part of the tapping block intact but it will have to be tossed out before we do another flooring project and I will read the reviews on an alternative before I order a different block.

I'm stalling lifeproof flooring and using just enough pressure to instal the planks. And no I'm not beating the fire out of it. This first one that chipped, broke, and chipped the plank I was working on, I figured it was my fault. So the next day I purchased another. Now this one also chipped and again a plank was damaged. I'm taking it back for a refund. Very disapointed in this product. When you have to use a hammer to tap a block, at least make sure it's made of a good plastic. And of course Home Depot does not have a quality metal or hard wood tapping block. I'll have to make one myself if I want a good one. I would not recommend this unless you're installing maybe 20 or less planks. It should last through that many.

I was hoping that it would last through the one project, so I could use it for future rooms that we might convert to laminate. It is easy to see what side needs to go up against the laminate but be careful as the universal sides might not exactly fit your flooring. As a novice, I did have a couple of instances where the block slipped and marred the flooring when I was trying to tap it in. Luckily, I purchased extra flooring for waste and my mess-ups.

A lot of them stating the broken end during use. Had same issue but it lasted the entire 21x11 job. For the use it requires, tapping each plank, it could be more durable. Doubtful you get more than one job from it, as opposed to the pull bar, which is used only for the last row only. That thing is super durable and will last many jobs, if you have to do more than one.

This smaller block works so much better than the longer one with the handle. That one will break within 5 min of use. You do have to use a plastic hammer like the ones with the black and yellow sides. Or a rubber mallet .if you use a regular hammer it will crack after a while I used these blocks on 2 separate installes and it works great.

We used this to install our new vinyl plank flooring and after using it on 8 planks, a huge chunk broke off of the tapping block! Either they are junk or we got a dud! It was pretty much unusable after this happened thus putting a temporary halt on our floor laying ....8 planks in and about 126 more planks to go! We were thrilled (not).

The ends kept breaking off and then the rest would go. The guy at the store kept saying I was hitting it to hard, not the case. I don’t think they have ever installed vinyl flooring.

I especially like that it has more than one option for depth on the undercut. It is so affordable that it doesn’t make sense to try to make my own from a block of wood.
