We recently bought an older fixer upper and Jose has helped us with several jobs. He removed popcorn ceiling, texturized, put in new drywall and pot lights, did painting, installed floor tile, and is now tiling my new shower. He has a lot of overall construction experience and brings important knowledge to the job. His work has been quality and looks really nice. His pricing is very competitive and he is responsive and easy to work with. We had a few last minute delays on our end getting materials and he kindly rescheduled several times. We are going to work with him on some outside hardscape and fencing as well. We highly recommend Jose and his team. (I will add some photos soon)

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.

Mo is an amazing talented carpenter. He built me a walk in closet from scratch in 3 days. He provided the design and ideas on how to make best use of the small space I had available & I couldn’t have been happier with the results. He is very professional and precise in his work and very reasonable in pricing. I am so impressed with quality of his work that I am having him make me a custom built vanity and bookcase as well. He also installed my hardwood flooring and cabinets which were very complicated to install. I highly recommend his services. Be sure to give him advance notice though as he is extremely busy but the results are definitely worth the wait.

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.

Freedom Renovation finished our kitchen remodel about 4 weeks ago and we LOVE it! We found them through door hanger. We live in La Jolla area, so we drove up north and stopped by their showroom, met Anna and set up an appointment. Alex and Anna arrived on time 2 days later and really listened to what we wanted, while other contractors did not. A day or two later we got an email with our initial estimate and a 3-D picture of expected result. A few adjustments needed to be made, so we called in with Alex to discuss about it in further detail. Alex and Allen were also super nice and willing to work with us to reduce the cost. We talked for a few days, and finally made our decision to go with them because they appeared down to earth and reliable. The first 2 days guys showed up to demo the kitchen, tile floor and the soffit. By the end of day 2 demo was done, half the drywall was in and 1/4 of the tile floor was laid. By day 6, all the tile was in, drywall and mud was done! These guys work hard and fast and their work is top quality. We chose their cheapest cabinets which is real wood front and compressed engineering wood side, very sturdy and built to last. We were quoted a 5-week time line and they finished in 4 weeks - Alex the project manager was terrific and always available. The tile looks so good. Their work ethic and quality are solid and I would be happy to work with them again.

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 was very professional. He set up an appointment with my wife in the evening after we finished work. He was very nice and he showed us many lvp samples. He measured and gave us an all inclusive estimate for couple samples we like. He was not pushy. He told us to think about it and to call him whenever we are ready. After couple days, we decided to hire Issa's company. We found that his prices are very compatible. The lvp was installed within a week after we signed the contract. We strongly recommend Issa for your flooring project. He will give you a very easy and unstressful experiance.

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.
