While searching the internet for someone to remove our 12-year-old carpet from our two-bedroom flat, I found many referrals for carpet installation and floor refinishing, but nothing for carpet removal only. I then ran across a listing from Thumbtack, and thought I’d give it a try. The site was very easy to use. It asked me specific questions regarding the job, and within minutes I received emails from three people in my area that included price quotes. I chose one (Brian’s Handyman Services) and communicated further with Brian to clarify details. He booked the job for the next day. Brian sent me a text stating that he was on his way, and he arrived on time. He brought Carlos with him and the two of them began working immediately. If you’ve ever removed carpet, you know it’s a tedious job: it includes pulling up the carpet and pad, cutting them into pieces, pulling out all of the staples from the floor, removing the tack strips, and disposing of the carpet and pad. Brian and Carlos not only did that, but they moved our large pieces of furniture around in order to accomplish it. When they left, there was NO mess for us to clean up. Furniture was back into place and floors were swept. Brian even bolted four large pieces of furniture back onto the wall that had to be unbolted and moved in order to remove the carpet under them. Brian stuck with his original quote, even though the job turned out to be larger than expected. I can’t say enough kind things about Brian and Carlos and the professional job they did. They were fantastic! If you want someone who is honest, fair, flexible, and easy to work with, I highly recommend Brian’s Handyman Services for anything you need done at your home—and it sounds like he can do everything. You can contact Brian through Thumbtack on the internet.

I am an architect, and I hired AA Cardenas Construction to rebuild a patio roof covering for my personal residence. The construction project required some thought and some careful planning by them to get the translucent roof covering to slope properly and still keep the spacing consistent across the width of the roof. They did an excellent job of adjusting on the fly to make things work perfectly. Their jobsite was neat and safe, they showed up on schedule, and the quality of the work and the attention to detail was excellent. Plus the price was very fair. I am recommending them highly.

Hals Carpet & Vinyl did a very thorough job when we had them replace the vinyl floor of a kitchen. They came out twice to evaluate the area and provide the final estimate free of charge. Instead of the quick and easy fix that will require work again after a year or two, they took the time to fully remove the old vinyl and baseboards, put cement on any damaged floor, and then placed new vinyl. Very happy with their work!

After 3 months looking for someone to put on my door -- Noel came to the rescue. Noel honed and installed an interior door in my old SF apartment. It was an incredibly difficult and complicated project due to unleveled doorway and floor. Noel was incredibly kind and capable. The door looks great and I highly recommend him!

I hired Mauricio for floor and wall painting. He was available the next day which was great. He and his son did a great job and I love the result. In the end, Mauricio helped me to haul some junks away from my home which he was a big help too. I would highly recommend him.

To create some additional space in the top floor of my garden cottage, I wanted to take advantage of the high ceilings and have a loft space installed. It was important to me that none of the floor space underneath was compromised, and wanted to avoid using supports from the floor. Jasper came over, took the time to understand my needs & vision, and offered a tremendous amount of support and advice as we pursued the design. He presented me with different options, and was sensitive to my pricing considerations. Ultimately, we decided it was best to pursue a minimally viable solution, and then expand on it as my needs changed. Within a week, Jasper showed up with his friend, a truck full of lumber, and got to business. He showed up at noon, and was done by 8pm. He was happy to make adjustments and modifications I requested weeks after completion (at no additional charge), left my home clean, and really took pride in his work. He was friendly, professional, and stood behind his work 100%. It was truly a pleasure to have Jasper come and turn my loft space vision into a reality that was far better than anything I could have imagined at a great price and on budget. I look forward to using him again for my future projects.

Jose and his crew did a fantastic job helping me paint back my office walls and floor so that i could get my full deposit back. Jose went above and beyond what most would do. The managment at my office building are sticklers about small stuff and when i told Jose I still needed a couple things adjusted in order to get my deposit back...he made sure he found the time to touch a few things up. I would highly recommend Jose and his team. I was impressed with his level of professionalism and dedication to having a happy customer.

These guys were great and came right when I needed them after my normal hardwood floor guys had to cancel. They did a good job on the floors and their price was very reasonable. The only thing I wasn't happy about was that I had just freshly painted the entire apartment and saved the hardwood floors till last to add that final sparkle! But after the floor guys had finished, all along the baseboard, the new paint had been ruined by their machine. This may be something that is unavoidable and it may be my fault for doing things in the order that I did, but now I have to have my contractor come back and repaint the baseboards. :( But other than that, I was very satisfied. Thank you.

Andres at Peninsula Custom Floors did an amazing job refinishing my hardwood floors. I had several trouble areas including an area that had a patch of engineered wood, deep gouges, different colored finishes, etc. Several years ago I had 2 other floor refinishing companies attempt to finish my floors. They both said my floors were particularly tricky and the outcome wasn't great, so I gave up until now. Andres made my floors look stunning! Plus his price was great, ywas able to work within my timeframe, he works neatly and methodically, he contains the dust, and is a totally professional in every other regard. I highly recommend Peninsula Custom Floors.

Juan and his assistant installed a security grill which was complicated by the fact that my wood door needed to be cut and re-hung to open inwards. I was thrilled, first off, that Juan was willing to do the job, since a couple other people I spoke with wanted me to buy a new door. Juan responded very quickly, answered all my questions, and was very professional and clear with his quote. His price was extremely fair, a bargain really, and he was able to accommodate my schedule and stay in touch via email. They worked very cleanly, covering the deck and floors, and tenting off the kitchen with taped plastic. The work went very quickly and smoothly. Juan needed to tweak a few things in order to make everything fit, so the finished product has some tiny flaws. Aesthetically and functionally, though, the doors are exactly what I wanted and expected for my slightly funky older home. I would definitely hire him again.

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

Mike has not started the project yet, we just hired him a few days ago. What I want to share is my experience so far. It's been great. Mike is so knowledgeable about flooring and he just wanted to educate us on our options. We went to his showroom in Walnut Creak and he had a great variety of samples and he explained the pros and cons of each one. He was very professional and gave us a fair price for the scope of the project. Others were less expensive the. Top Knot but I just know from the way Mike presented himself during the sales process that he will do an amazing job on my basement floor. So excited to get started.

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.
