I wanted to replace under-mount two bowl sink and contacted several plumbers but all of them told me that replacing under-mount sink is very difficult and could damage to my granite countertop. However, Amin agreed to do the job after inspecting my kitchen sink and did a wonderful job. Even dishwasher installers from Lowes appraised his excellent job.

We hired Roger to build a wood playset in our backyard. He was on time, very professional and did a very clean job. It took him about 8-9 hours to build the playset but he made sure that the playset was secure and safe for the kids. We are so pleased with his work and his professionalism. We will definitely use him again for other projects. And...he has the best price!

Robin built us a door/wall between the bedroom and the bathroom. It took 3.5 days (including the necessary drying time). We were impressed by the quality of his framing. He had great judgement about where to place the door. He relocated the recessed lights in order to center them in the newly created hallway. Robin made sure that the molding, wall texture, door and door knobs would match our existing stuff. I cannot wait to hire Robin back to replace our carpets with hardwood flooring.

Our experience with Hector was amazing. He installed cabinets, lighting, and electrical work in our garage (basically remodeled the garage). He is extremely hard-working and treated the job as if he was doing it for his own house: no shortcuts. His prices are very reasonable and he is a man of his word! You cannot go wrong with Hector! Excellent work and we look forward to working with him on ALL upcoming projects. We have found a handyman for life!

Amazing job!!! Came out the same day and took care of joining up my carpet to the newly installed bathroom tile. My tile guy didn't palce them correctly along the edge so he had to patch the carpet to make it work. He did a beautiful job and you cannot tell he had to patch it together. I would recommend him for sure!

We tore up an old carpet in our family room and found bamboo hardwood flooring installed. The problem was when the old owner installed new ceramic tile in the adjoining kitchen, they put a cement patch in between the tile and bamboo rather than replacing the bamboo. I have no idea why. Also, several of the existing boards were broken and cracked. We were very concerned it could not ever be repaired. Benito Matias came out and was very professional and polite. The quote was very reasonable. We hired him and he showed up on time. He had all the required tooling and materials quickly set up, and completely taped the work area off with plastic from floor to ceiling. Within a few hours he had jackhammered the cement out, cleaned and prepped the slab underneath, and meticulously installed the new bamboo boards. My wife and I could not believe how beautiful it turned out. His quality of work is absolutely outstanding. Every board fit perfectly and it looks PERFECT. Now we have to clean the old existing boards to look as good as Benito's work! We could not be happier and highly recommend Benito Matias to anyone looking to repair their wood floors. 5 STARS for sure. Thank you Benito.

We recently had our home painted and wanted to add exterior coach lights to both sides of the garage door. We had several quotes for the job (using same materials) and Mike's quote was the most reasonable of them all. We set up an appointment for the job and Mike not only showed up on time but also called to let us know he was on his way (this is rare with most contractors/installers). He performed the work promptly and added a photo cell so the lights turn on at night and off in the morning by themselves. This exterior accent lighting was the finishing touch for our home improvement project which now also adds a bit more security to our dwelling.We were extremely happy with Mike's friendly service, highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. American Castles and Mike Tay are class acts!

George was very professional and did a beautiful job with the installation of tile flooring on a rental property of my families. Not only did he do a great job but it was done in a very timely manner, as well as I think the price was reasonable. I would definitely recommend his services and hire him again in the future.

I highly recommend Steve Fry for your construction needs! We had a barn door custom made just sitting at our home and in need of installation. Steve responded timely to my Thumbtack request and we made arrangements to meet within a few days. He showed up on time and was prepared to do the work. The door kit was a bit raw, but he knew exactly what to do. He was friendly, and is truly and expert in door hanging. The final product took only a few hours and it looks beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Please call Steve for your construction projects - you won't be disappointed!

Steve did an excellent job fixing a set of light switches that had crossed wires. He also installed an 8ft shelf and rod in a closet. He had to cut the shelf and rod to fit. He caulked it once it was installed and cleaned up before he left. His price was also very fair. He is very honest and a pleasure to have in your home. I will call him again.

There were some hiccups at the beginning, so the project took longer to finish. However, Robert did a good job on our guest room's laminate flooring. He is friendly, too. I will hire him again if I have a project near Downey.

We decided to install hardwood floor in all of the down stairs and tiles in bathrooms. We consider 5 local reputable flooring companies and out of these five companies "Hardwood and Tile Discounters" were the most professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Their price very good. They delivered a good quality workmanship, and they warranty their work. I have recommend them to some of my relatives, and they have had similar experience. So i strongly recommend Hardwood and Tile Discounters Regards, Sam G

I was in search of a handyman for myriad of repairs for my rental property back in August of 2010. I ended up doing a serach on Yellow Pages and came across Mark's advertisement. Mark provided an oustanding service. He was even able to meet me at the rental property on the same day that I contacted him even though it was a little late in the evening. All his work was exceptionally well done. We had a really old bathroom exhaust fan that needed repair. Instead of recommending a new one he was able to find the part to repair it and save us a lot of money. He also did lots of cosmetic work for our walls also. We also had him hook up the new tenants icemaker to the plumbing and he got that done very well. His prices are very reasonable also. I would not hesitate recommending Mark to friends and family.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long does it take to install a hardwood floor?

Hardwood floor installation can take anywhere from a few days to more than two weeks, depending on demolition, wood type, the condition of your subfloor, total square footage of the project, and installation method. Demolition is necessary if you have existing flooring you want to replace with hardwood floors. New-construction homes do not require this step, as the subfloor is primed and ready for floor installation. During demolition, the flooring crew may find that your subfloor has damaged wood, uneven surfaces or other problems that must be addressed before the new wood can be laid down. Crews may charge on an hourly rate for subfloor repair, and the work can take a few hours to several days, depending on what’s hiding underneath your floor. The wood for your new floor generally arrives a few days before any work begins. This allows the wood to acclimate to the relative humidity in your house, which prevents it from shrinking or expanding after installation and causing gaps or buckling. The actual wood installation may take several days or more, depending on the size of your home and what type of custom cutting and designs are desired. If your flooring is not prefinished, the unfinished wood must then be sanded and stained in the home to treat and protect your new investment. Typically, stain takes a full day to dry, and multiple coats are applied. Baseboards and trim must also be installed. With all these variables at play, you can see why it’s important for a wood installation pro to provide an estimate only after seeing your home.

How much does it cost to install flooring?

On average, Thumbtack customers nationwide pay $5,500 for floor installation. The cost can range much lower or higher depending on the type of flooring you select (laminate is far less expensive than exotic hardwood), the square footage of the project, and other important variables like demolition and repair work needed. Here are some examples of average floor installation cost:   

  • Basic floor installation cost: $3 per square foot (not including product).
    • This can range up to $7 or $8 per square foot when tear-out and prep work is required.
  • Laminate floor and installation cost: $3-$8 per square foot.
    • Laminate is one of the most affordable materials and can start as low as $1.50 per square foot.
  • Wood floor installation cost: $3 per square foot (not including product).
    • $7 and up for hand-scraped oak planks and other specialized work.
  • Luxury vinyl tile installation: $3.50+ per square foot (not including tiles).
    • Cost includes prep work, underlayment, leveling and grouting.
  • Examples of additional floor installation costs:
    • Pouring concrete to level the under-flooring: $1,000-$1,500 for materials and labor.
    • Removing carpet: 35 cents or more per square foot.
    • Removing difficult ceramic or porcelain tile: about $2.25 per square foot.
      • Includes removal of the dura rock.
  • Floor repair: $75 minimum.

How much does it cost to install hardwood floors?

The cost of hardwood floors will depend primarily on the total square footage of flooring, the type of wood you select, the cost of labor in your region, and any preparation or repair work that needs to take place before installation. Selecting exotic woods, such as teak, will result in a higher cost for the project than a more affordable wood such as oak. The national average cost of hardwood floor installation is $5,750. Here are some examples of different woods and their average costs; actual costs will vary depending on the factors listed above.

  • Basic wood floor installation: $3 per square foot from a wood floor installation company.
    • The product cost for hand-scraped ¾-inch oak planks: $7 per square foot.
  • 620 square feet of maple floor:
    • Residential installation, total project cost: ~ $2,400 with five days of labor.
    • ¾-inch dark stained maple installed on top of new concrete in three rooms, a hallways, and a staircase.  
      • Cost for total project: ~$3.87 per square foot.

How much are oak hardwood floors?

Installing oak hardwood floors can add value and beauty to your home. The cost of hardwood floors is typically based on the overall square footage of your new floor, the type of oak you select, any repair work your subfloor requires prior to installation, and any demolition costs to remove your old flooring. Other factors that will affect your total cost can include the regional cost of labor and business overhead of your flooring company.

A flooring installation company may charge $3 per square foot for standard installation. For hand-scraped (higher-end) ¾-inch oak planks, the cost is approximately $7 per square foot, for a total cost per square foot of about $10 as long as no repair work is required. Standard oak planks are available from big-box stores for as low as $3 per square foot, so the quality of oak you want will affect your total project cost.
