I hired David Gomes for installing two toilet fixtures. In addition to installing the fixtures, I had him do tile grouting in the shower and outdoor motion sensing solar light fixtures. He has affable manners and good at what he does. He is very prompt, flexible, and reasonable. I will hire him again without reservations.

RIcardo was great - super helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. He was incredibly responsive and was willing to pitch in on additional things to help make my move out as smooth as possible. For projects he helped install some flooring, paint, move some furniture and patch some holes. Would recommend him for sure.

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!

This was an odd project where we wanted to use a large Bukara knotted carpet as wall to wall. We are builders ourselves but no carpet people wanted to touch the project. Dennis got to me right away after I posted on Thumbtack-my first time- and talked me through the project with advice that we took and it came out fantastic. We had one long phone call and two shorter ones re various tools and details. We talked enough about Marmoleum and carpet that now I have a new and for real flooring outfit for our projects.

I've literally communicated with or contacted at least five contractors over the past two months to complete this flooring job. Salinas was an answer to prayer! Whereas other sites or contractors told me to wait and/or never got back to me or took others jobs, Vyron responded promptly within an hour when I posted the job on Thumbtack. Vyron and Pablo did excellent work putting down a new subfloor and plywood, then installing an LVP (see photos) and a new toilet (not pictured). Vyron communicated about every step of repair and installation and about every purchase for the job. He takes pride in his work and left the work area clean. I'm so glad that the job is finished and that it was done well.

I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.

I needed to replace over 800 square feet of old vinyl flooring in my house. I was looking for a contractor that would assume the responsibility for the whole job including fixing any problems that were found. Fortunately a friend recommended Mr. Thayer. He and his crew did an excellent job installing my new flooring. During the installation a small water leak was found in my hallway. Mr. Thayer found a leak detective who located the leak and my pumper fixed the leaking faucet. I am very pleased with the installation and Mr. Thayer’s efforts in fixing the problem. I highly recommend Fred Thayer Carpets for flooring installations to my friends and acquaintances.

Junio and his team were amazing! We had a big job, replacing all of the flooring in our main living space with wood look tile. They also replaced our fireplace surround. The tile job was fantastic (a large area like that is not forgiving to errors). We had a pretty big issue with our subfloor and Junio made sure it was dealt with properly and even helped us with the additional labor. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and I'm so happy that we decided to have Custom Dreams Tile complete our job. The entire team was completely professional and easy to work with. We will hire them again in the future and recommend them completely!

I'm very happy to share my recent experience of my home renovation by Lifetime Remodeling. This was my first remodeling project, so I was a bit nervous, and I did not know exactly what to expect. I needed to replace flooring in 4 bedrooms from carpet to hardwood, and paint some walls in kitchen area. In our meeting Sam took the time to carefully consider the project and he clearly explained to me what needed to be done. After the first meeting with Sam I decided to choose lifetime remodeling because I reached a level of comfort and trust with Sam that I felt that he was sincere, honest, and good to work with. Now, after successfully completing this project we are starting the process of a new addition for our house that we have wanted to do for many years.

Patrick was just wonderful to work with. He is prompt in his response and he is efficient. He has a very friendly and easy personality which makes it stress-free to interact with him. He is honest and even helped me to find ways to save. For example, he realized after inspecting my existing carpet that the pad underneath it was still in good shape. He suggested I keep it and then removed it from the quote he provided me. The results were great. Our new carpet looks amazing! In the future, we plan to go back to him for our flooring needs. I highly recommend Luxor Floors. Honest businesses are hard to find now-a-days. Sharon RN.

Jesus did flooring in the whole house, found him working at another house in the neighborhood. I was skeptic about whom to hire because the floor was pretty costly. Jesus was persistent about the quality of workmanship and materials he used. He did Glue and nail. Very nice custom job. He is passionate and proud of his work. We also pull the same wood on a wall and a big section of ceiling. Came out real nice. All the installations were done at 45 degrees and he had the right skills to pull it through.

I had recently decided to get all new bedroom furniture, and when I moved the old furniture out - I discovered that somehow when my dog was a puppy, he was able to squeeze himself under my bed and dressers and pee in multiple areas, that were unseen until now. Distressed, and with new furniture on the way, I needed to get my floor fixed in a hurry, there was no way I'm sleeping with all new furniture on pee stained floors. So after reading some yelp reviews, I decided to contact Andro. He responded within an hour, and we made an appointment for him to look at my floor. After giving me a quote, he was able to start the work in a few days, and finish well before my deadline. What impressed me about Andro was his prompt communication. Anytime I emailed or texted him, I got an immediate response. The next most impressive thing was his knowledge of flooring - he used the latest materials and techniques, and was able to explain what he was doing and why. Then came the finished floor - absolutely amazing work. He had the difficult task of replacing those pee stained boards, as well as matching the color to the rest of the house, since he was only refinishing part of it. I was also impressed by how clean he keeps his work area - he sealed off and protected all the parts of the house that might be effected by the dust from sanding. Andro is the third person to have ever worked on my floors, and I say this with all sincerity, he is by far the best. Going forward, he's going to be the only person I call when I need work done. Please don't hesitate to use his services, you won't regret it.

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.
