Buy a new floor lately?

  1. Today, I had sticker shock. I tried to buy a new kitchen floor. The product cost was between $400.00 and $600.00. The Labor cost was outrageous. One place wanted $800.00. The other place wanted $950.00.

    Now, I make about $200.00 a day. The decisions I make could KILL someone or SAVE their lives. All this guy is gonna do is put down a vinyl floor. He is going to be paid more than 4 times what I make for less money, no holidays or weekends and I am going to pay this?

    What do you guys think?

    I know...I know...

    Glad we're not in this for the money.

    If I were in this for the money, there wouldn't be enough. Should I pay? Or do I keep looking?

    That does seem high...I always get three estimates then go from there.

    If the third is higher, I might faint! I would be cool if they said my product was say $1000.00 and they paid the guy $300.00. It just bites me that I could be putting in floors for a living and make a lot more money.

    I would hate to be putting in floors for a living.
