Jose was the first to respond to our job for leveling the kitchen floor and laying our new wood floor. He showed up when he said he would and gave a fair price. He also completed the job on time. We are very happy with the job he did, and we will be using him for our master bath. I will leave that review once that job is done.

Robert sent over his guys, Patrick and Chris, for our kitchen demo and we thought they were awesome. They were on time, polite, very neat, and even honored our request of preserving a couple of pieces of our old granite as well as our tile floors which we plan to keep. It was a pleasure working with them and based on our experience, we would recommend them very highly.

Mohammad (civil engineer) did awesome job on my French hardwood floor. The knowledge and experience shows in the final product. He is honest and very hardworking professional. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. His attention to detail and quality of work is well above others who have worked on my homes. Due to his exceptional work I have decided to work with him for designing my bathroom vanity and to remodel my 2 bathrooms. He will also helping us finish up our brand new kitchen.

Rick Rios installed about 100 sq ft of hardwood flooring so as to match up with existing hardwood. Very happy with results. Rios' subcontractor who did tile work at the same time also did excellent work.

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.

Robert did a bathroom remodel for me. The service and craftsmanship was excellent. Timely and efficient. The bathroom came out looking great, it's been 2 years and no problem with leaks. When I first got my bathroom done, the guys before Robert (diff company) didn't grout the tile correctly, so the water ended up leaking behind the tub and ruining the drywall. Robert and his guys came in and were very thorough, they tore out the bad drywall and redid the tub and tile. I had them do the floor tile as well as the sink. I also hired them to reroute the sprinklers in the front yard, which had been broken since I moved into the house. They redid the entire front yard in a weekend! Very fast. I plan on using them again when I'm ready to do my kitchen.

Where do I even start with Freedom Renovation. They have such a large showroom with many different cabinet styles and countertops displaying their quality work. Their showroom looks like something out of a magazine. Upon first impression I could not believe that everything that was done in the showroom was done by their exceptional staff. After a few weeks of discussing my planned kitchen remodel with the project manager Allen, my wife and I decided to hire Freedom Renovation. When we had signed we were told that the remodel would take about a month and a half, much to our surprise they were done in just a little over three weeks. I know I made the right choice in choosing freedom because my new kitchen looks better than anything I could've ever imagined. All of the staff was nice, friendly, courteous and excelled in customer service. I had heard some horror stories from my friends about other contractors and honestly was scared to have my kitchen remodeled. Throughout the entire remodel they kept me informed and up-to-date as to the entire progress of my kitchen. I always felt that Freedom Renovation had my best interest at heart. If you are looking for a bathroom or kitchen remodel or new floors installed I highly recommend them. The quality of the work they provide is unparalleled. My wife and I are already planning our bathroom remodel with them. Thank you Allen and your team you have made our dream kitchen come true.

Francisco and his team did an amazing job renovating the flooring and fireplace in our newly bought home. The quality of work is truly professional and Francisco communicated well every step of the way. He was able to level the slope in many areas to make sure the flooring transitioned smoothly. And the work he did on our fireplace speaks for itself. Check out the before and after pictures below!

Juan one-handedly remodeled on of my bathroom floor and vanity. He was courteous, diligent, and very personable. He wanted to ensure I was satisfied every step of the remodel. If I were to remodel again and want true workmanship than Juan is your man. Thank you for turning my 1970's bathroom to a modern, hotel-like. For sure this is our "guest bathroom" with all the amenities. Juan was also willing to take on a very hard vinyl fence replacement, basically correcting a mistake and accomplished a pretty hard goal. I look forward to working with him again and recommend him 100%.

I hired Angel and Noah to paint several rooms and woodwork in my house. They did an exceptional job. The quality of work was professional and efficient. I added more work to the original work order and they were able to complete all work in the time frame they gave me. They were polite, honest, punctual, and professional. They gave sound advice when asked. I felt comfortable leaving them alone in my house while I ran errands. They worked 10-15 hour days. The final paint job was professional looking with attention to detail. I had several color changes between the rooms and results were perfect. I am very pleased with the final product and I will definitely hire them for future work on my house. They exceeded my expectations and I would recommend hiring them.

We hired Nick Sinyuk as our contractor for a complete kitchen remodel. We chose Nick based on his high Thumbtack ratings, as well as both his (low) estimates for cost and time completion of 2 weeks. While the job took him 4 weeks rather than 2, he worked very hard to build a beautiful kitchen that has received glowing reviews all-around. He cut no corners, used quality materials, and sought our input on every decision and detail. He rebuilt our kitchen from scratch -- this included: installation of a new wood floor that is immaculate, built a dreamy custom island, refinished our ceiling, and built an entire kitchen cabinet and counter area that maximized our space and storage. Our kitchen is a dream -- it is truly a chef's designer kitchen. We would hire Nick again based on his skilled craftsmanship, pricing, and timely work.

Jose and his team removed and replaced our hard wood floor after a flood in the kitchen that spread to the rest of our condo. Jose was very responsive and helped us find a floor that was a very close match to our prior one (our prior one was out of production). He gave a very competitive estimate and was open and honest throughout the process. Jose and his team arrived on time and completed the job in the time that they said they would. He also fixed some drywall and replaced all of the floor boards. The most important thing is that he was mindful of our budget and worked within the boundaries that we set. Overall, Jose and his team did solid work and were very responsive. The only reason that I don't give him 5 stars is that there was a bit of clean up after he was done, which wasn't necessarily part of the job, but would have been a way to go above and beyond.

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.
