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.

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!

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.

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.

Matt did wonderful work around our house. He sealed up some exposed insulation on the underside of our house's addition with plywood and also helped reposition and hook up our washer/dryer in a more convenient location. Matt is a great communicator and the quality of his work is excellent.

After trying without success to get a local carpet installer to call me, I turned to Thumbtack. Within 24 hours Dennis gave me a quote for the carpet work I needed. We talked and Dennis had me on his schedule in less than a week. The job was small but Dennis fixed a poor carpet installation by Home Depot and did nice work at 3 new transitions to new tile work. With his experience, I wish he had installed all my carpet and flooring. Good job.

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.

Andres and his team went above and beyond in completing our flooring installation ahead of schedule. His team's work was top notch and he is very professional and punctual. I also recommended him for flooring installation in common areas throughout our condo complex and he is working on that right now.

Junio provided excellent service and the end product far surpassed my expectations. He had to tear out shoddy work started by someone who quit when they realized they were in over their heads. Junio was sympathetic to our situation (a one bathroom home whose residents included a full time working individual, plus a 95 year old with Parkinson's and day time caretakers requiring a working bathroom in place at the end of the day). He pointed out to me the design flaws in place and provided recommendations for corrections. I had previously purchased tile and selected grout, but was unaware that other finishing products were needed to complete the project properly. He provided me with brochures and product samples, making finish suggestions and only proceeding when I had given approval. He arrived when expected and made sure I knew what to expect. As I was almost never at the house when he was there, I asked and he provided me with daily project reports of work done and work to be done. Besides the tile work, he installed under tile heating -- I highly recommend that to everyone! He helped coordinate work with our electrician. He was always courteous and thoughtful. He completed the job on time and cleaned up at the end. I highly recommend Junio and Custom Dreams Tile.

Our remodeling was done remotely, and yet we were thrilled with the end result. Lifetime Remodeling provided us with the highest quality of work and costumer service. Lifetime remodeling brought their structural engineer, completed blue prints, got the plans approved with the city, and orchestrated all the professionals. The work included taking down walls, electrical work, building a pantry and a walk-in closet, repositioning a supporting beam, enlarging windows, creating a bar, painting walls and cabinets, changing bathroom floors, installing kitchen backsplash, hardwood flooring installation and refinishing, and more. Shmuel and the team were very receptive to all our requests and easy to communicate with. The job was completed within the planned budget and time frame. They truly care about doing the best for their clients, and it shows. Highly recommended.

Luxor Floors is an overall A+. Once I submitted my project on Thumbtack Luxor Floors reached out to me. Patrick was a pleasure to work with. He came out and was very honest about our floor planning and what he recommended and what would be a waste of money. The type of carpet he suggested for us wasn't your basic type of carpet. Luxor saved us a significant amount of money compared to our first quote by one of the radio advertised retail stores. Once our carpet was delivered Patrick had set up an appointment for installation that weekend. He worked around our schedule to insure we didn't have to miss work. Antonio was the gentleman who removed and installed our carpet and was a pleasure as well. Very respectful and hardworking. All in all I would recommend Luxor flooring to anyone that is looking to upgrade the flooring in the home.

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.
