Marty Kein's work is outstanding. He is a very professional person and very easy to work with. He worked for me on two occasions lasting about four months in total. His work involved renovating my kitchen, two bathrooms and an attached garage. He installed three new windows and one door. He also installed oak flooring in my family room. You can depend on Marty. He is totally honest and wants to please you by doing a very professional and thorough job.

Eder and his team did a fantastic job on our floors! From the very start Eder was quick with responding to our questions/concerns and was very open about pricing and timing of the project. He also did a number of different stain samples for us since we weren't sure what color we wanted. We had him do wood floor refinishing/staining (on red oak), new wood floor installation, as well as refinishing of a stairway/bannisters/railings. We were going from a very light finish to a very dark finish, so there are a couple of spots on the banisters and edges of the old wood floors that you can tell it was difficult to remove the old finish but overall they did a fantastic job. The main part of the refinished floor and the new flooring look fabulous and the color is beautiful, dark, and even. At the end of the project when we requested some touch-up work he was more than happy to do what he could to meet our requests. He also gifted us some more supplies (stain, poly, brushes, sand paper) to refinish matching wood floor vents we told him we planned to purchase later on. Overall Eder was wonderful to work with and I would definitely recommend him and his team for floor refinishing and new wood floor installation! Thanks Eder for our beautiful floors!

We had chosen Marco based on his excellent reviews, but unfortunately we didn't have the same experience as most people. We hired Marco to replace flooring tile in our kitchen, foyer, powder room and laundry room. With the exception of one day where he had to cancel, he did arrive between 8am and 8:30am with a partner and they got to work right away. They were quiet and respectful, but the language barrier was an issue at times. Prior to starting the job, we had mentioned to Marco that although we weren't concerned about the walls since they were being painted, we did request that he be careful around the doors and wood trim which had been painted recently. After he was done, we saw mastic and grout on not just the doors and trim, but also the base of our kitchen cabinets. He wiped off a lot of it, but I continue to find it as I'm cleaning. I do wish he had been neater perhaps taping up a plastic or paper to protect the base of the doors and cabinets. We had also pointed out many areas where there was hazing on the tiles left from the grout not being cleaned off immediately. He tried to remove some of the haze on his last day, but it had been too late to wipe it off without using a haze remover. I wasn't planning on writing a review since his price was reasonable and the items I've mentioned can be cleaned up. However, a few weeks into the job and the grout is now coming out of the joints in pieces. I've attached photos of where I was using a lightweight stick vacuum to clean the kitchen floor and the grout just got sucked right up. When I went to investigate, the grout just crumbles into powder when you pick it up. I'm not a tile expert, but it seems like perhaps the grout that he used in this area was too dry? I'm pretty frustrated at this point because I keep finding little areas here and there where the grout has just disintegrated. I know there were areas where they had not fully scraped out the mastic between the joints and just laid grout on top (which I know isn't proper), so they went back and scraped out some of these areas and regrouted, but even then, this should not be happening. It's been exactly 3 weeks since he finished the job and the grout should not be coming up like this so easily; it's like powder. The cracked grout is throughout the floor. I can't even say it's concentrated to one area, so I don't know what happened, but it's very disappointing.

Fernando and his team were very responsive to my request to come and see my floors, within a few hours from my inquiry, he was at our home. His quote was fair and the advice he gave in terms of what would be the best product for our floors was greatly appreciated. Fernando and his team did an excellent job in matching the color of the floors he was refinishing to the existing hardwood floors. It was hard to tell the difference. Excellent workmanship and truly a professional in every way!

Antonio at Master Hardwood Flooring did an amazing job on our floors. He removed carpet and installed floors in two rooms and then sanded and refinished our entire first floor. We were away the week of the sanding and refinishing and I expected to need to clean all the dust when we got home. There was not one bit of dust in our home. Antonio left everything so clean it was such a pleasant surprise. And the floors look amazing too. We highly recommend him for any flooring project you might have.

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!

My first experience using Thumbtack was great! Pablo came to give me an estimate, and took several measurements (not everyone seems to do this) to give me an accurate estimate. His prices were very reasonable, especially in contrast to other estimates I got. Communication was good- we texted about questions & scheduling, which is better than phone tag. He also took less time to do the project than quoted in other estimates, including working on weekends, which I really appreciated! He and his assistant were very polite and considerate of working in my small home with me still in it, careful to cover my bookcases and furniture to reduce the inevitable sheet rock dust from getting everywhere. They also cleaned up after, which is a nice touch! I plan to hire him again in the near future- I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for excellent work! I took the photos in late afternoon- sorry about the poor lighting!

Bryan showed up and gave us a reasonable quote very quickly and was able to start quickly as well. Has done a beautiful job on our kitchen backsplash. He kept the kitchen clean during the installation and he even was able to fix our trim which looks great.

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

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!

I’m not one to leave reviews but this time I absolutely had to. I went on thumbtack Sunday afternoon and Costa responded immediately to my flooring request and we agreed upon the price. He came out the following day at 8:30am and was finished putting down luxury vinyl planks in my 325 sq ft living room by lunch time!!! Very professional as I would highly recommend him for any of your flooring needs.

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.
