Carpentry & Joinery Question
The %age difference in cost between using 22mm t & g flooring chipboard and 22mm timer t & g floor boards.
I will soon be doing a large 1st and 2nd floor extension.
What is going to be cheaper -using 22mm T & G flooring grade chipboard or 22mm T & G timber floor boards.
At this early stage I would really just like to know what the %age difference would be.
The chipboard will be cheaper to buy- about 80% less , and the cost of laying will be about the same -80% less. This is a bit of a guess, but chipboard is way cheaper, that is why it is so popular.
