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’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a flooring professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To safely set up a consultation or appointment with a flooring professional and avoid the risk of transmitting COVID-19, start with an online search. Contact the professional through a message and ask to set up a video or phone call to discuss the project. This lets the professional visualize what needs to be done without physically needing to be there. Discuss the project’s timeline, budget, virtual payment capabilities and adherence to guidelines set forth locally and by the CDC.

Can I use digital payments to pay for floor installation, replacement or repairs?

Many local flooring professionals offer digital payments to conduct transactions for floor repairs, installation, replacement and more. This trend has been increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is prompting flooring professionals to take payments through Venmo, Square Cash, PayPal, Google Pay, Zelle and other convenient platforms. 

To ensure you can safely pay for the service, contact the professional beforehand and ask which services are acceptable. Take any measures necessary to comply with guidelines on social distancing.

Do flooring professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Because flooring work has to be done in-person, flooring professionals are typically unable to perform work virtually. If you come across a pro's profile that states they're offering remote services, message the pro to see what those services include.

If you plan to get indoor flooring installed once the pandemic is over, you can ask potential flooring specialists if they host virtual consultations through video calls and digital messaging. Compare flooring professionals in your area online to find the right fit, and book an appointment.

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 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.

For more tips on choosing the best flooring for dogs, talk to one of the best flooring installation professionals near you.

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.

Reach out to your vinyl flooring installer for tips on how to further maintain and care for your vinyl floors.

For more tips, read our guide on how to clean and maintain all types of flooring.

Does a flooring professional need to enter my home?

If the flooring project is located inside your residence, performing the job would require the flooring professional to enter your home. This is not recommended by the CDC during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if a flooring project takes place in a separate location outside of your home, the flooring professional will not need to enter your home. 

Talk to flooring professionals in your area to see if it’s necessary for them to enter your home. If so, you might want to postpone the project until social distancing guidelines are relaxed by the government.

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.

Reviews for Denver floor refinishers

We had a small refinishing job and decided to go with Freeland Hardwood Floors because of the reasonable pricing. From start to finish, Dillon was professional and punctual. He did a fantastic job refinishing our 80-year-old floors - they look absolutely beautiful and brand new, and they match our existing floors perfectly. We’d highly recommend him for any job, big or small.

Had my yellowish floors refinished with a natural, water based finish at a great price compared to other competitor quotes! They look absolutely amazing and were completed within just a few days, so we could start moving in. John had been very kind and helpful throughout the whole process and we'd definitely recommend them for anyone looking to get floors installed or refinished! :)

Jeff and his crew did an outstanding job, refinished 3 bedrooms, living room and hallway in one day, at below his quoted price. At the end of the day, everything was cleaned up and looked great. I would highly recommend using buff and shine if you need some wood floor refinish work.

I hired Toski Floors to refinish my floors. Toski Floors was very professional, friendly and considerate of my home. The price was very reasonable and they were always on time and finished the project in a very timely manor. They even went the extra mile to make me happy when I was unsure of the stain that I picked. The floors turned out gorgeous and everyone one that sees them absolutely loves them. I would definitely recommend Toski Floors. Thank you Toski Floors!

Elvedin, with Dedas Hardwood did an awesome job on my floors! This was a remodel of a 1930's house that was in terrible shape. I was not sure if the floors could be refinished and now they look like new. Elvedin was always prompt, professional and easy to work with. He said he has been doing floors for 18 years and you could tell by his knowledge and passion for what he does. Next time I need to hire a flooring professional I will be giving Dedas a call.

I couldn't be more pleased with the job Jeno did refinishing my red oak floors. His bid was by far the most affordable, and the quality of work was exceptional. He was punctual, very communicative, finished ahead of schedule, and the floor looks absolutely great. All the scratches are gone, holes repaired, and the floor looks brand new. He was done in less than two days. This guy really knows his trade, and plies it with no fuss, overcharges, or unnecessary additions. He even left me some extra finish to apply to oak stair treads that I'm installing myself. I've dealt with many contractors during my remodel, and Jeno's product is by far the best in terms of quality AND value. If I ever need more refinishing, I know exactly who to contact. Thanks, Jeno!

D and L refinished our hardwood floors and they turned out beautifully!! They did the work exactly on schedule to what they told us, we’re able to fill some holes from previous damage, and came in at a great price point. We were thrilled with the final product and would absolutely recommend them!!

William and his crew had two weeks between when we bought our house and we needed to move in to replace and refinish our old beat up floors. Our house is old and even though several odd things came up William worked with us to get the work within the budget and timeframe. He even came back to finish a bit of floor that our carpet installer was supposed to cover and didn't.

I had Jeff refinish my old/scratched floors and they look amazing, completely new and the color is exactly what I envisioned. He did a fantastic job, was incredibly responsive and was priced perfectly for my budget. He was able to get me on his schedule right away and work with me when I needed a flexible start date. I will definitely call him again for any other floor needs and highly recommend.

Doug refinished and stained our existing wood floors and installed new wood floors in our kitchen and mud room. He was professional and prompt. His work was excellent. We were on a serious time crunch due to an expecting baby and he got the done work quickly over a weekend and found us the safest stain that we could use. He followed up to ensure our satisfaction. He is fair and honest, in my view the two most important characteristics in a contractor. I highly recommend him.

Jeff did an amazing job bringing out new life in our original wood floors! Our living and dining rooms were covered with dirty carpet for years with several deep stains. Jeff was able to get them all almost entirely out. If he encountered something unusual or that he wasn't able to address, he called us right away to talk through it and gave us a few options along with his suggested approach. Really appreciate the professionalism, communication, and amazing work! The floors came out beautifully and we would absolutely recommend Jeff to anyone looking for someone to refinish their wood floors.

Rodrigo provided a quote on refinishing the floors in my loft as well as a second space in my loft. Rodrigo was to return to complete the second space and never did. All attempts to contact Rodrigo have gone unanswered. He received payment in full but never completed the project!! Do not hire this contractor. I am only giving one star because it appears I can't give him zero.

Jeno is hilarious and definitely did a great job refinishing our old beat-up original 70 yr old hardwood floors that had been hidden for years under carpet. He also installed brand new hardwood steps and risers as ours were too destroyed to finish nice. Before and afters attached so you can see how bad they were and how nice they look now.

We love our floors after John refinished them. They look so amazing. I would recommend him to anyone I know wanting to revitalize their wood floors. When we bought our house and ripped up the carpet we were concerned with the condition of the hardwood floors underneath. After years of being covered up with carpet and tile , being spray painted in spots, and MANY screws put in to prevent squeaking I was not sure if the floors could be fixed. John walked me through his process during his inspection of the floor and ensured me that we had great wood hidden under the mess. I felt confident in his skill and felt like we could trust him with this big project. He did an amazing job and we are so pleased with the results. He took great care to remove screws, filled in the holes, laced in new wood to replace damaged spots and somehow fixed all the squeaking.

I had the best experience with Milene and Dave. They were thorough, fast, stayed within their timeline, and completely transparent about pricing and any extra costs throughout the process. I had them refinish my existing hardwood floors as well as install new hardwood in my bedroom area. The pricing was reasonable, I could pay them through Zelle which was convenient, and they completed the whole project in less than 5 days. They offered suggestions for how to clean and which products to use afterwards to ensure my floors remain awesome for the next decade. I couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out. Thank you guys again!

Thanks to Jeff and his team for doing an outstanding job on refinishing my floors! I posted my job on Thumbtack and Jeff contacted me within minutes. He came over to give me an estimate, and was exactly on time. He gave me a fair estimate and impressed me with his knowledge of what needed to be done. I hired him, and his crew showed up right on time and completed the job in the time they stated they would. They were very helpful in helping me to decide which color to stain the floor, and offered options that I didn't know existed. I went with their recommendation, and I love the look of my new floor. They cleaned up well, and Jeff even came back over to put closet doors back on that the painters had taken off--I really appreciate him going above and beyond! One of the best contractors I've worked with. He did it for the price of his estimate (no hidden charges) in the timeframe he said he would. Highly Recommended!!!!!
