Get the information necessary to accurately bid and build your Warmboard project

In order to properly provide a bid with Warmboard you will need both a material and labor bid

Building with Warmboard begins with a full design of the panel and tubing layouts. If using the Warmboard Comfort System, a mechanical design will be included as well. Once this design is complete, we can provide an accurate price for the materials to be shipped to your site.

Your Regional Manager will work with you on preliminary pricing for your project, whether choosing the Warmboard Comfort System or only our radiant panels.

Once you have a completed design from Warmboard, the information below will be helpful in bidding the labor for the installation. This content is intended as a guide and is by no means a final labor bid. Use your own labor rates and adjust for your costs. Please give us a call and our team can help you refine your bid further.

Warmboard Comfort System (WCS)

WCS is the first truly modern radiant system, individually engineered and configured precisely for your client’s needs. We design the entire end-to-end system, including the boiler and controls. Our team will work with you to coordinate all shipments to your job site in accordance with your schedule. You will need a licensed plumber for the installation of the mechanical components.

Panels Only

Along with our award-winning radiant panels (Warmboard-S and Warmboard-R), every project includes detailed construction documents with panel layouts, tubing layouts and manifold locations. Warmboard can also supply PEX-AL-PEX tubing & stainless steel manifolds, if desired. You will need to work with your own engineer or radiant professional to specify, design and coordinate the purchase and delivery of the boiler and related mechanical components.

Finish Flooring

Tile: Labor time will vary depending on which of the 7 assembly methods you choose. Using a backer board will require more time due to the recommended stencil method to track tubing loops, but the material for this method is readily available and typically not as costly.

Carpet: Add time and material to fill empty tubing grooves before installing carpet padding 

Hardwood

  • Nail down – faster than going over gypsum concrete. Requires a little bit of care to avoid tubing (which will be visible during installation)
  • Nail and glue – faster than other systems since you can nail and glue directly to our panels
  • Floating – Same as non-radiant floor
