Flooring was installed incorrectly which voids the warranty on it. Furthermore, there are multiple broken pieces installed, sections not properly secured together, and the installers did not follow the directions on the box. It explicitly says no pieces shorter than 12 inches to be installed, yet there are multiple pieces as short as three inches installed. There must be a 3/8 expansion gap against all fixed objects, yet most of the floor is installed directly against the wall or the tile threshold. Not only am I worried about the longevity of my installed floor, my ten year warranty is void as it states on the instructions due the errors made listed above. Lastly, the owner said he would come by and fix the errors but never showed up. Laminate flooring is very easy to install and I do not understand how people who do this for a living made such obvious errors. This was not a good experience and I do not recommend them.

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.

Chris and his guys did a great job ripping up my rugs and installing vinyl plank flooring. From start to finish, it was a pleasure working with him. At our first meeting, He is very personable and honest. When he came to do the work, he worked quickly and meticulously. And when they were finished, they cleaned everything up and put all the debris out to curb, which the garbage men took the next day. I couldn’t be happier, and will definitely hire him again in the future!

I hired Fortin & Miller Construction to install hardwood flooring in 3 separate rooms in my home. They removed the existing carpeting and assisted us in choosing the correct flooring to suit our needs. The floors came out fantastic and I would hire them again for the next home improvement job that comes up. They were efficient and professional. Highly recommended!

The room looks great and he completed it timely, was well organized, easy to work with and kept the work site clean. I highly recommend Ben and will readily contact him again for future work as needed.

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

Nick was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the work I needed done. I started a complete bathroom remodel on March 19th and I had to fire my original contractor for various reasons. Nick came right in and completed the job (tiled the shower, install the vinyl flooring, installed the vanity and sink faucets, paint and much more) within 5 days. The tile work is immaculate and he really pay attention to detail. I will definitely use Nick again for other work in my home.

Paulo at Easy Way Painting & Hardwood Floors makes life easier for my buyers and sellers. Buying and selling can be stressful, and Paulo and his crew always do top notch work and help ease that stress. Whether painting walls & trim & siding, or refinishing floors to help prepare a home for the market, or helping my buyers make cosmetic upgrades after they close, Paulo never disappoints. My clients always feel comfortable and confident with him and his crew, & they are always satisfied, which is important to me. Thanks, Paulo!

I hired Scott to completely remodel an outdated bathroom from 85 in my new home. Scott handled the complete demo, rewiring/electric, plumbing, sheetrock/molding, tile/grout work, glass installation, and all other details of the job. It was so convenient to have one person organizing the work for the bathroom so I did not need to hire multiple people and coordinate the jobs myself. I was able to communicate well with Scott on what our vision was for the bathroom. He helped pick pain colors, fixtures, and tile options. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the final product. The workmanship is second to none! The drywall and tile look amazing! Thank you Scott for all the hard work you put in... we will definitely be calling you for another project soon.

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.
