ANSWER:
Brazilian Cherry is a beautiful hardwood. It is also one of the more expensive hardwood species you have to choose from. If your room is 10 X 16 (160 SF) you will probably need to buy about 175 SF of hardwood. The additional wood is called the “waste factor” and generally you can expect to need 10% over what your actual square footage is. Brazilian Cherry Hardwood will range in price because like most hardwood products there are various “grades” to choose from. Even a low grade Brazilian Cherry Hardwood is usually more expensive than a domestic hardwood like Oak. In Atlanta GA the average installation labor for hardwood flooring is around per square foot.
