Arisel did a wonderful job on the wood laminate floor and molding he put in. He was prompt, clean, and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend him. I actually have him looking at other remodeling projects we hope to get done soon!

Matthew built two wood platforms for our washer & dryer that required some creativity so that they both fit comfortably within the confines of our garage space. He built solid, well-designed platforms with smooth edges. He was thorough and made a point to double check measurements as well as sought feedback from us as he built the platforms. Also installed an on/off switch for our gas line behind the dryer, which was a relief. Maintained a solid professionalism throughout the entire project as well as showed consistent communication. Would hire again without hesitation!

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!

Vyron was the most responsive contractor we had, originally unsure if we were going to use him for just the demo or the demo + remodel, and he was diligent and professional the entire time. Vyron removed around 300 sq ft of tile and he laid new tiles for us. Our floor was on a cement base (uneven) which he evened out for us as well. They were on time, cognizant our my dogs when they came in and out of the gate, and even recommended the pattern which we LOVE! I highly recommend him and offered to be a reference as well. Thanks Vyron!

I hired Jasper to build a custom storage bench for me, and a modern barn door. Jasper responded to my post and came by to see the space prior to giving me a quote. He took my ideas and made some suggestions, and drew me a plan of what the pieces would look like. He was also able to find wood that matched my existing wooden floors and mango wood furniture very well. The bench he built fits perfectly in my space and looks seamless. The barn door is very modern (just what I wanted) and looks fantastic in my room. He also kindly offered to come by in a month to ensure that there was no issues and adjust anything to my liking once I have had time to use the pieces. Overall turnaround from the time he responded to my Thumbtack post to delivery of items was less than 2 weeks.

We needed a hardwood floor sanding and stain for our house. Carlos is very knowledgeable. He responded to all our questions about the cost and process. He gave us a great price and great deal to help us with redoing our kitchen tiles that are loose and some broken. He is very professional and was willing to change his work schedule around our tight deadline for our project. I would definitely recommend his service.

Juan remodeled our unfinished attic space (about 700+ sq ft) from top to bottom and turned it into a new office studio. He laid out the framework, ran electrical wires, put up insulation and drywall, painted and stained, added window trim, installed hardwood flooring and baseboards, and added storage cabinets. He was able to finish our attic in three weeks, and for a very reasonable price. He is a very hard worker, and really creative with his solutions. He always had helpful advice for me when I wasn't sure what decisions to make. He is now our go to contractor when we need work done around the house. I highly recommend him for his work quality, professional etiquette, and ease of communication. I am very happy with the work he is done, and can't wait to work with him again.

I ended up interviewing 10 different contractors for our exterior siding job because there were so many different opinions on what needed to be done and how best to do it. I'm so glad that we ended up going with Kris and his team. Great communication throughout, incredibly high quality of workmanship on a very difficult job (it is an older house that hasn't been maintained very well before we bought it). I really appreciated Kris' attention to detail and letting us know what was going on throughout the 6 week long process. Also did a great job working with the county inspector, which is never an easy process. These guys are pros - won't hesitate to hire them again for our next house project!

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.

We are extremely happy with our new hardwood floor!! It wouldn't have been as great if it weren't for jolly joyful Patrick who came by in person so many times to show us samples and make us smile at his British accent. We were really cared for in our selection and the installers were so kind and hard working. They even evened out our concrete base floor so that the wooden floor will last for a long time. Our little closet had no baseboards and they went out and bought some. I was floored, "literally". I'm so glad small businesses exist, they make life and monumental tasks approachable. Thank you Patrick and all of your team.

Marco was not the lowest bidder but was honest about installing. He came out to look at the project and then bid. Because the project was in Antioch and he lives in Hayward (terrible traffic) he stayed very late to complete the project a day early! The floors are beautiful laminate called Hickory from Home Depot and they turned out so beautifully that the other subcontractors stated what a great job. He is very diligent about the materials (which I purchased) and placed the extras in a nice bundle for return. He only does wood flooring...I do not use this word very often but he is an expert.

A tenant had damaged the older wood flooring in two areas by allowing water to sit until the floors warped and lifted. We had a short window to get the floors re-done and the new tenant moved in and the damage was not seen until first tenant fully moved out. Got on Thumbtack, Bruce came that same day or the next morning to evaluate and gave me a couple options depending on our budget. All his options were affordable and since I was insanely busy at work I and decided to trust Bruce in terms of his assessment. After being a landlord for 25 years of older buildings, I could tell after just 20 minutes he knew his stuff. Best. Decision. Ever. The floors look flawless now. The stain he chose was much better than the one I agonized over when we first had the floors done a few years back. He had to replace some boards and completely sand and re-set others but somehow (magically) this old 1880's floor looks better than I ever thought it could. It looks like it was never damaged at all. The finish was flawless and he finished right on schedule. I am only going to use Bruce in the future because repairing and replacing wood floors is not easy and truly needs someone with experience and skill. My husband and I are planning on hiring Bruce to refinish the wood floors in our home too. Highly recommend this contractor!

We moved to California a few years ago, and were a little in the dark on who to go to when we purchased our home. Our freind recommended Bay Home Remodeling for our project, and we could not be more pleased with the work. They really took the reigns and completed an amazing project for us. Tom was prompt, organized, and a pleasure to work with. Our home built in the almost 100 years ago and had minimal renovations over the years. The team helped us create a beautiful design that opened up the floor plan, and completely remodeled the house based on our life style. Tom and Gal were the lead contractors on our job, and we loved having them at the house every day. We were actually very sad when they were finished because it meant they wouldn't be a part of our day to day life. The finished product is BEAUTIFUL. Everything was completed to perfection. They made the home new, while keeping the charm of the house. The team gave us great insights along the way. When we were stuck on a decision they guided us the right direction. I loved that Tom would always include his input when we were making a design decision. His expertise and experience was invaluable in making the right calls. We found that the selection of finishes from the Bay Home Remodeling partners excellent. We love the cabinetry, flooring, and counter top. Overall we could not be more pleased with our renovated home, and our time working with Bay Home Remodeling. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent team to remodel their home and definitely would use them on future projects.

Great contractor. These guys were working on our house for a few months and did a huge amount of work. Built an addition to the house, built a new bathroom, remodel kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, replaced all plumbing, sewers, gas lines, windows, hardwood flooring - everything. During all construction period Aldo was super responsive, helped a lot with his experience in materials and design, always managed his team to do work on time and with great quality. One thing that I'd like to point out specifically - his estimates were always detailed and accurate and he never asked for extra expenses. We're living in our house for almost a year now and we're happy that we worked on it with this guy, he is a perfect example of highly motivated professional who can do any complex construction project with pace, great quality and within budget. I would highly recommend to hire him if you want your home improvement to become a great experience for you and your family.

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.
