I hired Mohammad for installation of laminate floors in my living, bedrooms (3) and stairs. He did an excellent job and is extremely detail oriented. He will not stop until the work is done right. His quote was very competitive compared to any other installer in San Diego. He was on time every day and worked very hard. I would hire him in a heartbeat for all my future needs that relate to wood. If you are hiring him, here is one suggestion to wrap up this review: He might under estimate the time to complete the job. And as he starts working, he will get into the microscopic details and might take extra time to complete the project. But his work is worth that extra time.

Franks Boyz sent an estimate very quickly after we posted for a handyman to install a gas firelog set and remove the glass fireplace doors from our fireplace. Jay followed up with a phone call where we discussed the project and agreed upon a price. Jay was able to come the same day - late afternoon and was very pleasant, professional and did an excellent job installing. We posted our project on the morning of Dec 23 hoping we could use the fireplace for the holidays and Franks Boyz came through for us.

John did a great job all things considered. I do feel like he sort of rushed things because of other obligations he may of had but it was still a good experience hiring him.

We spent a lot of time looking for hardwood flooring. Tried all the cheap discount places and saw the quality was pretty poor. We found Woodchuck Flooring on Thumbtack and visited their beautiful showroom off Convoy in Kearny Mesa. They carry only quality products and were very patient with my wife and I as we choose which flooring was right for our home. Jarett did an excellent job installing the flooring and they are amazing. Really nice guys who do an incredible job...not the cheapest, but definitely worth it!

I am so fortunate to have chosen the right man for the job. My floor looks like an art piece. The wall molding he choose made the room more elegant. In the near future I have more work for him at my home. He has gained my confidence and trust. One of the important things I liked was that he was able to solve installation problems and explained beforehand his reasoning. A great quality in my book. I have future flooring work already planned for him and I know his price is fair and affordable for me. Very happy customer

Pedro did an amazing job w/ all of our tile work: he completed two bathrooms, and rebuilt our fireplace. He was very reliable, professional, provides high quality work/service, and fast...we also hired him to help with some custom cabinet/shelf painting, and that also turned out beautifully. We would definitely recommend him (and will probably use him again!)

Nick repaired some water damage in the floor of my laundry room and kitchen. He tore out the floor, repaired the damage in the subfloor, leveled the floor out and put down new vinyl flooring. He also installed a new water heater and dishwasher for me (which is what was leaking causing the water damage). He was very responsive, answered all of my questions, kept in touch, worked efficiently, and the flooring looks great! I recommend him highly.

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.
