Jose was the first to respond to our job for leveling the kitchen floor and laying our new wood floor. He showed up when he said he would and gave a fair price. He also completed the job on time. We are very happy with the job he did, and we will be using him for our master bath. I will leave that review once that job is done.

If I could I'd give Benito 6 stars out of 5. He did an excellent job, he was always on time and worked very hard to get us exactly what we wanted. He definitely takes pride in his work. We had Benito basically redo our entire house. He installed hardwood floors downstairs & on the stairs, baseboards throughout the entire house, carpet in all bedrooms and vinyl for the bathrooms. I'd certainly hire Benito again, and I'd recommend him to family & friends.

Mohammad (civil engineer) did awesome job on my French hardwood floor. The knowledge and experience shows in the final product. He is honest and very hardworking professional. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. His attention to detail and quality of work is well above others who have worked on my homes. Due to his exceptional work I have decided to work with him for designing my bathroom vanity and to remodel my 2 bathrooms. He will also helping us finish up our brand new kitchen. I would highly recommend Mohammad for any project you may have.

Chad and his team did an excellent job refinishing out hardwood floors. They were flexible and worked around our schedule which made the whole process very easy. The floors look amazing. We were only able to refinish half of the house, but plan to have them back asap to finish the rest. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Where do I even start with Freedom Renovation. They have such a large showroom with many different cabinet styles and countertops displaying their quality work. Their showroom looks like something out of a magazine. Upon first impression I could not believe that everything that was done in the showroom was done by their exceptional staff. After a few weeks of discussing my planned kitchen remodel with the project manager Allen, my wife and I decided to hire Freedom Renovation. When we had signed we were told that the remodel would take about a month and a half, much to our surprise they were done in just a little over three weeks. I know I made the right choice in choosing freedom because my new kitchen looks better than anything I could've ever imagined. All of the staff was nice, friendly, courteous and excelled in customer service. I had heard some horror stories from my friends about other contractors and honestly was scared to have my kitchen remodeled. Throughout the entire remodel they kept me informed and up-to-date as to the entire progress of my kitchen. I always felt that Freedom Renovation had my best interest at heart. If you are looking for a bathroom or kitchen remodel or new floors installed I highly recommend them. The quality of the work they provide is unparalleled. My wife and I are already planning our bathroom remodel with them. Thank you Allen and your team you have made our dream kitchen come true.

I hired Angel and Noah to paint several rooms and woodwork in my house. They did an exceptional job. The quality of work was professional and efficient. I added more work to the original work order and they were able to complete all work in the time frame they gave me. They were polite, honest, punctual, and professional. They gave sound advice when asked. I felt comfortable leaving them alone in my house while I ran errands. They worked 10-15 hour days. The final paint job was professional looking with attention to detail. I had several color changes between the rooms and results were perfect. I am very pleased with the final product and I will definitely hire them for future work on my house. They exceeded my expectations and I would recommend hiring them.

1st - I want to say that Bill was very flexible and worked around our time schedule. That is always a plus. We had just about 2 weeks to complete the remodeling of our one bedroom cottage to get it ready for my mom to move into after recovering from surgery. Once all household items were moved out, that left just two weeks for the repairs to be done before the flooring. He repaired or replaced pretty much everything in the cottage. This included prepping and painting all the walls, replacing the plumbing in the shower and vanity. He repaired all of the wood windows, reconfigured the kitchen cabinet doors, bathroom, fixed the electrical problem in the kitchen. He was able to complete all of the repairs on time and on budget. His bid was very reasonable and less than the other 2 bids we received and we were quite happy that we selected him to do the job. 2nd - quality of workmanship was outstanding. He did an awesome job! Family members are awed by the quality of his work. I have hired him for a project at my house. Our family members will be using him at their homes as well. I have already recommended him to my friend who is going to remodel part of her home. He is very experienced.

Issa at Iz home improvement went above and beyond to make our experience great. When we contacted IZ Home Improvement, Issa scheduled a time to come to our house with different Laminite samples. He measured and answered all of our questions. He gave us a great price. Also, installation crew were very professional. Issa came the first and last day of the installation to make sure we are satisfied with the service; which we for sue are. If you need flooring services, look no more and contact IZ Home Improvement.

Jose and his team removed and replaced our hard wood floor after a flood in the kitchen that spread to the rest of our condo. Jose was very responsive and helped us find a floor that was a very close match to our prior one (our prior one was out of production). He gave a very competitive estimate and was open and honest throughout the process. Jose and his team arrived on time and completed the job in the time that they said they would. He also fixed some drywall and replaced all of the floor boards. The most important thing is that he was mindful of our budget and worked within the boundaries that we set. Overall, Jose and his team did solid work and were very responsive. The only reason that I don't give him 5 stars is that there was a bit of clean up after he was done, which wasn't necessarily part of the job, but would have been a way to go above and beyond.

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.
