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.

We absolutely loved working with Benito (& team) from Matias Flooring! He was so professional and accommodating! He offered very competitive pricing, that was less than several quotes we received! His work is TOP NOTCH, and every little detail is perfect! He worked HARD to finish the project in just a few days! We trust him, his team, and his work ethic, and will use him again in the future!

Inspite of a few setbacks out of his control, Shawn delivered. He finished on the time he promised and did an excellent job. The tile he laid and suggestions he made to improve the project were all beautiful. Magnificent job, Shawn. Thank you.

I am quite happy with the work so far. I am writing this soon after the work was done, so I need to see how it holds up, but my new flooring looks quite nice!

What a difference. I love my floor! I recently purchased a new home and was wanting to finish the garage, drywall, paint the works. I had a very unpleasant experience with 2 previous contractors and was actually about to give up on completion of the project. Sooo glad I did not. Antonio and team were on time, knowledgeable and actually take pride in what they do. I have one more project and looking forward to working with them again.

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 had him come to remove a ceiling fan and install a new ceiling fan and wall switch. Because did such a nice job, I had him remove and install two bath faucets one of which needed more repair than I thought. He also repaired my tub faucet which I knew needed lots of work. If I need anymore repairs, I will definitely call him.

HIGHLY recommend! Edwin and his team were RELIABLE, professional, honest and very hardworking. They painted my 3b/3ba home from top to bottom. He completed it all and applied the new baseboards with quick turn around. He was reasonably priced compared to several other quotes that I got. He also helped with some minor handyman work. I would most definitely hire him to paint again. He was wonderful to work with!!

Scott and Victor were great to work with. We hired them to replace our first floor tile, baseboards, and paint half the interior walls. They also fixed an unexpected water leak during the tile project. Towards the end of the tile project, we decided to have them replace our patio deck and build a vegetable garden box. They were responsive, polite, showed up everyday, addressed every question and request we had. We will definitely hire them again for future projects, since they pretty much do everything.

I recently moved to Beverly Hills and bought a beautiful antique bed frame. The only problem with the bed frame was the open space underneath it. I have a beautiful little Bengal kitten that would have loved to have crawled under my bed and hid all day long. I considered purchasing a brand new bed frame that extended all the way to the floor to prevent my kitten from running under the bed, but thought perhaps an experienced carpenter could match the wood on the frame exactly and extend it all the way to the floor. I decided to place an ad on Thumbtack and Ricky responded to my request immediately. He did an incredible job. He responded to my request right away, offered an unbelievably inexpensive quote, and offered to come over as soon as possible to resolve the problem. He did such a wonderful job from start to finish - he not only matched the wood perfectly but made the installation seamless with the rest of my bed, which I thought would be nearly possible with an antique. I cannot emphasize what a fabulous job he did - I highly recommend him.

We hired this company to remove the carpet in one of our bedrooms and refinish the hardwood floor underneath. We were preparing for the arrival of our baby boy and wanted to upgrade the nursery with some nice floors. They did an amazing job and managed to match the color of the final flooring to my existing wood floor in the rest of the home. Overall great experience.

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.
