We have a 30 yr old home with a concrete foundation. We are getting
rid of all carpet and replacing with tile (mostly 16 inch) and
hardwood. What is the approximate cost of floating the floor per bag
of floating material? What kind of price should we pay a contractor
for this service?
What size bag? What material? (gyp based, portland based, vinyl
How long to mix? How long to lay down? How long to finish? How
long to dry? How thick is the installation?
If you are planning ceramic and your floor is stiff enough (big
issue), you may be ahead to consider capping the subfloor with
cement board (Durock) bedded in thinset.
It sounds as if you need to go to a real tile store or solicit a
bid/ information from a floor installer.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .

Ask at your local lumber yard for cost per bag. Get a few bids from
contractors as to cost to float it. If you are going to DIY, the cost
to float is cost/bag x number of bags plus your time. Coverage will
be on the bag, again ask at the lumber yard.
