In my area, big box will install it for $2.29sqft, but it all depends where you live. Call around.

There really isn't a going rate. There is competitive pricing.

Different areas or regions, will have big swings in labor costs. Rural areas and the cost of living may be less then someone the works and lives in a major metro area. The sothern states have less labor cost then northern states, because of the illegal immigrant migration.

I don't have a one price fits all installations. Every project is different, and my labor quotes reflect that.

Home Depot and Lowe's is no where to compare competitive labor pricing from. They are the middle-middle man on the actual labor, as it is subcontracted out, many times, before the actual person installing it, gets a piece of the pie. $2.29 would be considered on the high side where I'm at, but a general contractor or retail fl,oor dealer like the big boxes, are going to mark up the actual subcontracted labor.
