I just hired VRP services to replace my carpet with solid oak wood floor. Positive experience. The owner Horace came in and gave me detailed quote in person. It's the best quote I could get comparing to others I checked later including chain stores (most of them outsource to other contractors). He and his father Cido worked with me to choose the material that most closely match my other connecting wood floor area. Days within the material arrival the team of 3 came to my house on time and got the work done in one day. My old floor has extra plywood beneath the carpet which is unexpected, Horace gave me reasonable price to take the extra layer out before putting in 2 1/4 inch wide wood pieces. They explained things to me such as putting a layer of paper under the wood so would not block its natural ventilation. The project including a lot of sorting, sanding, precisely cutting, nailing, leveling. For an old house, I would not be more than happier with the end result- a shiny eye soothing wood floor every time I walk on it. They put on plastic curtains to block the dust flying around, vacuumed clean the floor and took away all the waste. They are professional, honest, and attentive to your questions. I would highly recommend VRP to my friends and family.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WORK!!!!! I hired Jacques to fix a painting job gone horribly wrong. When I first spoke to Jacques my idea was to just put wallpaper up to cover up the awful walls in my bathroom because I thought I was going to have to spend an arm and a leg getting the walls redone. Jacques came to my house to give me a free estimate, and brainstormed with me different ways to fix the walls and trim at a price that would fit my budget. As a person, Jacques is hardworking, courteous, easy going / no pressure, and dedicated to his craft - his work is phenomenal! Before Jacques fixed my bathroom walls and trim, I was crying tears of disgust, and when he was done, they turned into tears of joy! Jacques turned what I imagined my bathroom should look like into a reality. His quotes are EXTREMELY reasonable for the amount and quality of his work - he skim coated the walls, put nice trim along the floor, re-did trim around the door, primed and painted the walls, removed an ancient medicine cabinet, patched holes with drywall, installed a new light, plug, and came up with a great solution for a 1 inch gap between the sink / vanity and wall. I am beyond impressed with Jacques and his craftsmanship. When all the work was done, you couldn't even tell he had been working in that room by how clean it was (it was cleaner then when he started the job). I can guarantee you that when you hire Jacques, you are hiring a true professional! Since he did such a fantastic job with the bathroom, I'm rehiring him to fix the walls in my living room and hallway. He's definitely a contractor you want to hang onto!

We are thrilled with the work from Finished Edge Flooring. Tom refinished our old wood floors and made them sparkling new again! Tom was very polite and easy to work with. I was pleased with their punctuality and quality of work, and especially that the job was completed within 4 days from start to finish. We are very happy with our floors.

We hired Rome to paint the exterior of our house. We needed the house power washed, caulked and a lot wood rot needed to be repaired. Rome has a great eye for color as well as great attention to detail. He is knows painting products better than most that gave us quotes. Rome is also honest and fairly priced. His team was exceptional and worked around our requirements. I especially loved the work his carpenter performed. I would definitely hire him again.

My experience with Angelo has been nothing better than great. I picked him up on line just because of his reviews not knowing what to expect. He is honest, punctual and his prices are better than other floor contractors. My floors look beautiful, he knows his stuff and takes care of problems himself. I give Angelo a 10+! If you need to see my floors, ask Angelo and I will be more than willing to open up my doors to anyone and be a reference. Ruth/Stamford

I had Dave Dohl of Homestead Contractors do a roof repair on my over 100 year old home. He came out to my home, gave me a quote on the work, and started the job the next day. He was efficient and extremely helpful. The quality of his work was excellent and he did a very good cleanup after the job was through. After the roof was done, he did some trim painting on the front of my house which improved the street view of my house a lot. I would highly recommend Dave Dohl to anyone in the Moodus/East Haddam or Middlesex county area. I would definitely use Homestead Contractors again.

Jerry and his team did a wonderful job laying two types of flooring in our Café in Wilton, CT. The front room was a diamond pattern of vct tile and the back was a wood laminate. Both required extensive prep work which was executed in a timely and professional manner. Jerry and his team were flexible and courteous to the other members of the construction team and I would recommend them most highly.

Jim and Son Julio did a about 600 sq ft of hard wood floor sanding and polyurethane. They were very easy and pleasant to deal with. Though I think they did not have a lot of experience sanding floors, they did a good job, on time, at a very reasonable price.

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.
