I gave him the task of updating my 1980's home. I needed my master bathroom completely remodeled. He remodeled my master bedroom. Removed a skylight that was leaking and closed up the roof and repaired my ceiling. Removed the fireplace and gave me a linen closet. Ripped up the carpet and installed a new hardwood flood. Painted the bedroom. .My kitchen and dinning room needed to be completely gutted, the wall removed between the rooms and combined into one large room with an island. The cabinets needed to be stripped and refinished. He removed the soffit and added crown molding on the top of the cabinets. Took the refrigerator and pantry cabinet and installed them in the wall to enlarge the kitchen even more. He even changed the entrance from the hallway into the kitchen/dinning from squared off ceiling to an archway which gave the look of a new addition to the home. He knocked out the window in the dinning room and replaced it with a sliding glass door. Built a large back deck for entertaining. Built a gazebo right next the the deck so that I can just walk onto the deck and into the hot tub in the gazebo. Poured a concrete slab.Then installed a hot tub. It looks like a new home throughout. My family and friends would walk into my home and their mouth would just drop open in disbelief. It doesn't even look like the same home. His attention to detail reflects the years of experience this man has in carpentry. When you explain what changes you would like to do to a home. He can tell you what will work and what won't. He brought to my attention that the electrical wiring was not done correctly when my home was built. So I had him correct that as well. Hiring Jacques to update my home was the best decision I ever made. Spending the money for updating and repairing my home was well spent. My home is worth a lot more thanks to Jacques. I would highly recommend him for any size job. He is a one man operation, but gets the job done like a whole crew of men. He constantly keeps the job site clean so the dust is minimal. I would not hesitate to hire this man. He is professional, knows what he is doing and can be trusted with your home.

Tom refinshed the hardwood floors in my house and put down three layers of finish. He started I believe two days after I called him, can't beat that. His price rate was very reasonable. The floors took a little bit longer then I expected but that was due to the humidity/weather and the floors not drying, not because of Tom. Overall I would definitely recommend Mr. Reynolds to my friends if they are looking to get their floors refinished. I'm very pleased with the final product.

Rome and his guys were great. We originally planned on only doing a couple things, and after seeing the quality of the work on stair repair and popcorn removal, we also had hardwood flooring installed, drywall replaced and tiling done. The work Johnny, Reuben, Jesus and the other guys did was beautiful and the prices Rome gave us were very reasonable. I would recommend him and his guys to anyone looking to get professional quality work done to their home.

I can't say enough about how happy I am with MF Hardwood Floor's work. They were the first company to respond to my project request and came out immediately to to assess my floor and set a date to do the job. Fernando is was incredibly professional, prompt, and knowledgeable, and completed the floor much quicker than I even thought it could be finished at the finest quality. I will highly recommended them to everyone I know and will use them for all of my future projects.

After meeting with three different flooring contractors to refinish my hardwood floors I decided to hire EP Flooring. I was very impressed how quickly Edevaldo got in touch with me to set up the appointment to come and see the property and he gave me the quote right there. He even arrived 15 minutes early. His price was the best of the three but I didn't only hire him for that reason. He was a real gentlemen. Very knowledgeable of his work, respectful and professional. The hardwood that needed refinishing was in a rental property. It was in very bad shape. Lots of dark spots, heavy traffic area damage and bad scrapes. The job took a couple of days as he had said it would. Edevaldo and his crew managed to get every deep scrap and dark spot out of my floors. I couldn't believe it. The crew always showed up a few minutes early each day, never late. The dust level during the job was minimal. Edevaldo and his crew cleaned up meticulously when they left. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience. The job came out more beautiful than I had expected it to. We have more rental properties and even our own home hardwood floors will definitely be refinished by EP Flooring. Thanks again to Edevaldo and his crew!

We could not be more satisfied with the work that Nick did. We wanted to install prefinished hardwood flooring in our living room/dining room. The rooms are connected but not at the same level. We purchased the flooring and Nick did the installation. It took him 2 days to complete the work. He was very easy to communicate with. He was accommodating and a fountain of infomation on flooring. Nick was particularly neat and left the space very clean, clear and organized. He arrived on time and stood by his estimate after seeing the project. After he finished the work, we found a bad seam that required him to remove the board all together. Even though I knew exactly where the problem piece was, the work was so good that I didn't believe that the new piece was a repair. Nick is very personable and courteous. I would highly recommend hime for another job.

I am very happy with the work performed by this business. The representatives & workers were of high quality, knowledge and experience. I had rugs for over 15 years in my 2nd floor and decided to remove them and replace with prefinished hardwood floors. I had my first floor sanded, painted and coated. Both floors look spectacular! Thank you Apple Hardwood Floor Company for the great care and service you provided!! ~M. Velez, Stratford, CT

Andrew is an experienced professional. When I met Andrew I told him that I wanted to whitewash the floors in my living room. He explained the process and what was involved in achieving a lasting whitewash finish. He did exactly what he said he would do. He did a good amount of prep, taping off my other rooms to prevent dust from spreading. He and a helper came to my house 4 days in a row, leaving time for the bleaching, whitewash stain, 3 coats of a latex poly. He is detailed and checked his work thoroughly at the end to ensure the finish was perfect. I am going to be using Andrew to refinish the rest of our hardwood floors. I am planning to do a darker stain in the other rooms and definitely going with the latex poly. It’s worth the money for the high quality finish that won’t yellow or scratch like the typical oil based polys. I highly recommend Andrew. He is trustworthy and honest!

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.
