Labor rate for installing vinyl flooring

Does anyone know what square foot labor rate can be expected for installing vinyl flooring. I am talking about the 12 foot wide vinyl flooring not tile.

A location helps. There is an area to fill out in your profile to display your location in your post just as mine is now. It would prevent us from answering questions with questions.

I'm having my kitchen and bathroom done right now. It depends, too, on how bad the flooring is now- do they need to lay down new subflooring? Is it level? Any soft spots?
Mine: had to have 2 layers of plywood removed; replace linoleum. $350 for the kitchen(12x8 section) and $500 for the bathroom(10x8). I'm also in Texas, so the rate you were quoted seems "fair" to me.

One thing that may make a difference is the choice of using quarter round instead of shoe moulding.

The shoe moulding I originally had in my house was either 1/4" or 3/8" at the bottom, depending on the room. When I redid them, I used 5/8" quarter round. It makes very little difference to me aesthetically, and it makes working around the edges much easier.

Some people like to have a bit more room to work with on the edges.
