Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are the different types of flooring I can install in my home?

Here are four popular types of flooring you can install in your home. 

Solid wood flooring:

Solid wood flooring is made up of 100% wood, and has a very natural look and feel. It can add value to your home and. It can resist wear and tear, and be sanded and refinished multiple times. However, solid wood is susceptible to humidity and water damage. When it’s humid, solid wood could expand and if there’s a flood, it will be hard for the wood to return to its natural shape.

Laminate flooring:

Laminate wood flooring is an artificial product that mimics real wood flooring. Its core consists of fiberboard material, topped by an image print layer and sealed with a clear protective film. Laminate flooring is UV-resistant and less expensive than solid hardwood (approximately $3 to $7 per square foot to install). However, it also has a lower-quality feel, is unable to be sanded and refinished, has a lifespan of around 25 years and will invariably have a repeated print, according to Consumer Reports

A laminate hardwood floor is popular in living areas like dining rooms and kitchens. Their quality has improved dramatically in recent years, making them an attractive alternative to more expensive flooring types. Laminate flooring can also be scratch-prone, easy to clean and maintain, and resistant to moisture. 

Vinyl flooring:

Vinyl flooring is made completely out of PVC plastic and is an excellent option for moisture-prone areas like bathrooms and kitchens. It is durable, comfortable and inexpensive. Vinyl plank flooring and vinyl floor tiles can also imitate stone, tile and wood. However, it is fairly easy to spot vinyl flooring as synthetic. Install luxury vinyl plank and sheet vinyl flooring in areas where moisture is a concern.

Engineered wood flooring:

Engineered wood flooring often has a plywood-core substrate and a genuine hardwood veneer as its uppermost layer. Engineered wood floors are more impervious to humidity than regular hardwood, meaning that it’s less likely to expand, warp and buckle, according to Consumer Reports. However, it can dent easily. The best engineered hardwood has a thicker veneer, as well as a quality that allows it to be sanded down and refinished to increase its lifespan. It can be as durable as solid hardwood, and it’s often an affordable choice for many homeowners.

What is the best flooring for dogs?

Waterproof or scratch-resistant flooring is typically the best flooring for dogs. This includes: 

  • Vinyl: Vinyl may not add much to the value of your home, but it is resistant to scratching, stains, dents and accidents. Plus, it’s an affordable option.
  • Tile: Tile is generally water-resistant and scratch-proof, and more affordable than hardwood or stone.
  • Laminate: Laminate is not truly waterproof, but it is tough and often more scratch-resistant than other wood floorings. 

Remember that solid hardwood is susceptible to damage, including dents, scratching, licking and accidents. But if you want to install wood floors, the best hardwood floors for dogs are typically made out of maple, Brazilian walnut or bamboo.

How much does it cost to install flooring?

The national average cost to install flooring is $5,500, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 . Your cost can be much lower or higher depending on the type of flooring you select, the square footage of the project, and other important variables like demolition and repair work needed.

Here are some examples of floor installation costs, depending on the material:

How do you clean hardwood, concrete, vinyl and laminate floors?

After you get new floors installed in your home, make sure you maintain them. Use these tips to keep your floors clean, shiny and polished. 

How to Clean Concrete Floors

Start by sweeping or vacuuming the entire surface to remove loose debris. Mopping will require different substances based on the type of concrete floor. For a polished concrete floor, use a specialized polished concrete cleaner. For a painted concrete floor, use a mild all-purpose cleaner. A sealed concrete floor can be cleaned with dishwashing liquid, while an unsealed floor is best cleaned with trisodium phosphate and stain removers. Use kitty litter or cornstarch for grease stains, and distilled white vinegar for rust stains. 

For more tips on how to clean and maintain your concrete floors, consult with your professional concrete flooring contractor.

How to Clean Hardwood Floors

Cleaning hardwood floors typically requires a mop, bucket and some type of hardwood floor cleaner. Start by removing furniture and objects. Vacuum up all debris (or use a dust mop), moving with the grain. Spray your cleaner on a small section of the floor, and mop in a figure-eight motion, working backward. Make sure there are no puddles. 

In high-traffic areas, you should mop one or two times per week. Low-traffic areas should be mopped at least once per month. 

To ensure you're cleaning and maintaining your hardwood floors properly, speak with your hardwood flooring installation specialist.

How to Clean Laminate Floors:

Start by vacuuming to remove dust, dirt and other debris. The best mop for laminate floors is a microfiber mop with a sprayer feature. Spray and mop one small area at a time to avoid standing liquid on the floor. Go over the floor with a dry microfiber cloth after mopping to make sure all liquid is gone. 

Although you can use a damp mop, never use a wet mop on laminate floors. Moisture can cause the flooring to bubble, swell and buckle. Instead, use a dedicated laminate floor mop with a laminate floor cleaner spray. The best mop for laminate floors is typically made with microfiber, which picks up dirt and absorbs moisture well.

Consulting with your laminate flooring installer is a good idea if you've never had laminate floors and need more tips on how to clean them properly.

How to Clean Vinyl Floors

Cleaning vinyl plank flooring is easy. Start by sweeping and vacuuming up dirt, dust and debris. Then use a damp — not wet — mop or rag with warm water. While vinyl is waterproof, an excessive amount of water can leak between the seams and affect the glue bond with the floor. When you feel a chemical is needed, make sure to choose cleaning products safe for vinyl planks.

Is it worth it to hire a professional flooring specialist?

Unless you have plenty of experience installing the type of floor you want, it is worth it to hire a professional flooring specialist. 

The first reason is tools — pros have them, and they know how to use them. Without the proper experience, there is a high risk of injury with nail guns and power saws. A good pro also works quickly, saving you time that you could spend doing other things. 

Finally, a pro gets you past options paralysis by helping you decide the best flooring for different rooms and areas of the home.

What's the best flooring for basements, kitchens and bathrooms?

When installing flooring in your home, keep in mind that some materials are better suited for certain rooms while others are not. Use this guide to help you make the best decision for your home.

Best Flooring for Basements

Basement flooring should be highly resistant to moisture, as many basements are below grade. Choosing the best flooring for basement spaces depends on what they’ll be used for. For example: 

  • An epoxy basement floor is a durable finish for concrete.
  • Vinyl basement flooring is generally waterproof or water-resistant. 
  • Laminate floors can be an affordable option, but they’re often not 100% waterproof.
  • Ceramic tile floors are also water-resistant. 

If your basement isn’t moist, carpet tiles are also an option — just make sure to use a moisture barrier.

Best Flooring for Kitchens

Kitchen flooring does more work than almost any floor in the house, so you’ll want to choose a durable floor. The following are among the best flooring types for kitchens:

  • Porcelain tiles can be fashionable, moisture-resistant, and cost less than stone or wood to install.
  • Vinyl flooring can withstand dents, is generally inexpensive and it’s easy to install.
  • Linoleum flooring can be durable, easy to maintain and affordable. 
  • Wood flooring could be damaged by dropped pots and pans, furniture and pets. However, hardwood and engineered wood floors in kitchen spaces are still popular among homeowners.

Best Flooring for Bathrooms

Bathroom flooring must withstand high moisture levels while also being comfortable on bare feet. Here are some of the best flooring options for bathrooms: 

  • Porcelain tiles are generally comfortable, waterproof, stylish and less costly than stone or wood. 
  • Vinyl flooring is waterproof, cost-effective and can imitate wood convincingly.
  • Natural stone can be expensive, but it’s typically hard and durable.

Reach out to a flooring installation and repair professional near you to see which type you should install in your home.

What are the disadvantages of vinyl flooring?

The disadvantages of vinyl flooring are worth considering for homeowners. Vinyl flooring is difficult to repair if it tears or scratches because you cannot refinish it. And while it imitates more expensive products, it is still usually easy to spot vinyl flooring. This means it might not add to the value of a house, as most buyers would prefer to remove vinyl flooring and replace it with something of a higher quality. Low-quality vinyl flooring is also susceptible to fading and discoloration from sunlight.

I contracted KZ Renovations to install plank flooring in most of my house. They did an awesome job on the demo of the old flooring and the installation of the new floor they put in. Kirill and his helper are honest, hard working, priced fairly and kept us informed the entire way. I would definitely recommend KZ Renovations to anyone, and would use them again in a second.

We absolutely love the job that Caleb with Providence Home and Floor did for us. We were in a rush to get laminate flooring installed before listing our property. We contacted on Friday and received a same day estimate. We hired Caleb on Monday and he began tear out that afternoon. By Wednesday afternoon, he was completely done and the installation was flawless and beautiful. I would highly recommend Providence Home and Floor for their professionalism, punctuality, and overall exceptionally positive experience.

I cannot express how happy we are with the work performed by Christopher with Craftsman Floors for installation of LVP flooring and new baseboard for the main level of our home. We honestly picked Christopher after our one and only interview - we were THAT confident he was the right choice. Christopher was punctual, professional, polite and an excellent craftsman. He provided his expert opinion on the right flooring, helped us pick the right color (we were going in circles and his recommendation was spot on) and installed with amazing perfection. He also installed new baseboard and it looks so great. We were so confident and comfortable with Christopher that he completed the majority of the work while we were out of town - I never once worried about him being in my home. We could not be more pleased with how they turned out. He was even kind enough to install door stoppers in areas we didn't have them. He is a true professional! We HIGHLY recommend Christopher for your next flooring project. 5 stars!!!

Design & Elegance were amazing from the start. We had 9 companies bid our flooring project. Design & Elegance made us feel.the most comfortable by far. From the bid to installation they were knowledgeable and very professional. They did an amazing job! The quality of work was unmatched. I have 17 years or residential construction experience and they have blown away floors I have seen over the years! I will only use them on all future flooring needs! Thank you again.

After attempting to work with another company who was not responsive, I reached out to Toski Floors. Rodrigo was a delight to work with. He was very responsive, coming out immediately to provide a quote (which was received the next day). His price was very reasonable. He did outstanding work (we had hardwood installed in the downstairs living area, old hardwood sanded down and restained, the staircase replaced, and hardwood installed in the upstairs hallway) and exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for someone to do quality work at a reasonable price, I would highly recommend Toski Floors!

I hired MavCo Flooring to install LVP in the downstairs portion of my home. The process was as seamless as it gets when it comes to hiring professionals to do work in your home. Thiago, Felipe and Marckensonn handled the install for us and their work is top notch. They are an extremely hard-working group of guys and very good at what they do. The job was completed in a timely manner, the crew cleaned up after themselves and they were just very pleasant to be around. The owner of the company, John, was very communicative and flexible with fitting us into the schedule quickly so we could have our floor done. Overall, I would recommend this company to anybody that wants a quality install job done right and quickly by people who know what they're doing and also at a very good price.

I needed solid hardwood, multi plank floors installed in two levels of my home. I received several quotes. I hired Wooden Arc Solutions because when Oliver arrived to give me an estimate, he was down to earth, reasonably priced, and not pushy. I felt comfortable leaving him and his crew in my home for a week and a half (it was a large job). The quality of their work is excellent! My floors and baseboards look wonderful. I will be referring this company to friends and family, and I will definitely hire them again when the opportunity arises.

Noori/Neat Flooring exceeded our expectations. He is the consummate professional; respectful of our home and completing meticulous work. He ensured that necessary materials were ordered and spent time explaining the correct install process. Noori had patience with our learning what to expect. He and his employee worked tirelessly throughout the day and ensured a clean up of debris each evening. We believe he provided high quality work for a very good value.

We really like our new bedroom & stairs. The 3 stars however are for a couple things. Originally the sales guy who did the quote also gave us a list of all materials to buy. When contractor came by we were missing material because we weren't told to get it (another trip to Home Depot had to be made and we didn't really have time for it ). I guess contractor wasn't informed at first that he had to do stairs as we found out they are difficult to do with the type of flooring. Contractor let us know he'd be back to get stairs done once we contacted him & let him know we got the piece for the stairs. After purchasing the piece , I contacted him & so did my husband. No response. I finally contacted company (idk if it's the manager but Scott) and he arranged for piece on stairs to be put on. The 3 stars is because I shouldn't have had to contact tom dick and Harry for the completion of the project. Regardless of how easy the installation for the iron piece was, I paid for a service and required that it be done by the company I paid. Could we have done it ourselves? Maybe yes but maybe we could've screw something up so I left it to the pros. We are getting walk-in closet & upstairs rooms done with the flooring and will be trying a new company this time.
