    "Hi Cheryl there are many variables to take into account. Type of flooring, the shape of the room. However, as a rough guide, I would say most fitters could comfortably install approx thirty-five square metres in a day. Some more, some less so I would say a day a good 2 man team could do both your rooms This is in my experience. Hope that answer helps 😊"

    "Depending on the area of the room and the style/design wooden flooring is quite a quick process once the layout is confirmed. For a standard living room usually around 12-16m2, you should be able to lay the complete floor in a day as long as it is ready. If it’s joists or reclaimed flooring sometimes it can take a little more patience to achieve the finish. If it’s laminate or engineered flooring then it would usually be a pretty straightforward process"

    "That would vary depending on what type of floor is being installed and what the area shape is, a good fitter in normal circumstances in a domestic setting should lay 15 - 20 sq Mt's of laminate on an average per day, a glued down herringbone block and the border would be at least double, roughly speaking"

    "Depending on the size, shape of rooms 1 day / 2 maximum should be plenty of time to carry out work in both rooms with all finishings"

    "It depends on the size but for 2 rooms say medium size I would put down 1 day maybe a day and half at a push"

    "It all depends on the size of the area, a medium-size room with beading usually takes a day without coming across any problems. Hope this helps."

    "This will all depend on the person who is installing I would personally take a day but it would all be depending how quick they work but just because it's only a days work doesn't mean that it is a day rate pay they have spent time learning their trade and have to pay overheads and maintain their tools while also putting a roof of there family's head they also want to be able to do nice things with there family."
