Reasonable Quote for Hardwood Floors?

I'm considering installing HW floors and tile in my condo. ground level concrete slab unit HW: 400 sq ft TILE: 78 sq ft. So far, the only quote I've received for Bruce Cinnamon Maple HW HW floor installation $3,340. glue @ 261.00; installation of new shoe (qtr round) moulding 160 @ 1.50/ft = 240.00;>installation of new painted baseboards 51/2"(labor & mat) 170 @ 6.50 = 1,105; removal of current carpet/linoleum flooring and old tile 478 @ .30 = 143.40; installation of tile (labor only, I buy materials) 900.00. This totals around 5,728.40 (not including tile materials). If anyone out there can comment on whether you think this is a reasonable estimate or not, I would greatly appreciate your input! It seems high to me, even if I didnt have them install new baseboards.

Dear Jonesa,

I don't know what area of the country you live in, so it is hard to compare. As a contractor/remodeler this seems quite high. In Georgia, ceramic tile usually runs around 5$/sq. ft. I include in this replacing moulding and trim. Hardwood runs around 4$ for glue down applications. Unless there is something difficult about these applications, I'd get another quote! I travel too!!!!

I have hardwood floors in my apartment; what can I do to reduce the noise that travels besides rugs?I have a 2 bedroom apartment with hardwood floors. My roommate and I have started keep really different hours, so I'm trying to find ways to keep the noise down for both our sakes. We have rugs in all the common areas, but we can't think of anything else to reduce the noise.
