Daniel and his guys did a great job installing oak hardwood floors in our 1,600 sq ft home. He also removed the previous tile, blue stone, replaced two sections of rotten subfloor, and leveled the surface. Overall it was 7 plus days for multiple guys and I feel he charges a fair price. I've already recommended him to my in-laws as they are updated the floors in their basement. Daniel is a great guy and you should definitely use him if you want a quality job for a good price.

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.

Gold Saw did a phenomenal job Installing new hardwood floors for my husband and I. They catered to all of our needs, and met all of our deadlines with precision. In addition, Gold Saw has outstanding customer service. We scratched the floor in the master bedroom when we were moving in our furniture. When we called Angelo to see if he can help us fix it without breaking the bank, he and his team came to our house that evening. I recommended his services to my mother in law, and my husband and I highly recommends getting your floors installed by Gold Saw Hardwood Floors.

Just had my floors done by MF Hardwood Floors and I could not be happier. Fernando and his guys were there for 2 days, bright and early, and were very professional. Quality of work was second to none, and you honestly couldn't beat the price. Hundreds of dollars cheaper than other quotes I got. I'd use them again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend them!

Luis accommodated me for a free estimate and shortly after completed my hardwood floors which included staining as well. He assisted me with getting beautiful floor vents for my central air and also purchased and installed the saddle needed prior to the flooring job. He worked late and arrived very early to enable us to be back in our home within a few days. The floors came out amazing and he was professional throughout. I highly recommend using L&M Flooring.

Brian installed a bamboo floor in my office in 2 days. He had a helper on the first day. They were both easy going and pleasant to work with even when we ran into a few issues. Brian was on time and his workmanship was top quality. I would use him again or recommend him to a friend.

I was looking for someone to come in and refinish our hardwood floors, and came across Antonio's page here. I looked at his "after" pictures and liked what I saw. He returned my call the same day, and even drove out to give me a quote that afternoon. He was available promptly and was able to start the next morning, no wait time needed! He showed up first thing in the morning, right at the time he said he would be here, and helped me move all our furniture out of the way, including the fish tank, which needed to be siphoned before we could move it. He brought his assistant Michael, and the two of them made a great team. They sectioned off the part of the house getting work done so the rest of the house stayed clean, sanded, and refinished the floors. They cleaned up everything after themselves, and even helped me move my furniture back once the floor was done. Three coats later, our floor was absolutely beautiful again! It went from dull and faded to looking like new again. I honestly couldn't believe it when I saw it. My goal was to get this all done in one day while my fiancé was at work so I could surprise him when he got home, which was a push because initially, it was a 2-day project, but Antonio and Michael made it all happen in time to get everything put back before he got home. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend them to anyone looking for hardwood refinishing, and they will be the first ones I call when we're ready to do the second floor. Truly genuine hard workers, and the results are outstanding! Thank you both!

Pedro's workmanship is exemplary! The best taping job I have seen in all my 45 years in bussiness. Add he is fast and clean. Not a spot of compound anywhere on the floor. If you want the best, Pedro is the one.

I can absolutely recommend Apple Hardwood Floors. They came out to do an estimate and we could distinguish their professionalism, plus an excellent price, that we scheduled them pretty much immediately. Unbelievable quality and attention to detail. We love our new wood floors. It feels like we moved to a brand new home!

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!

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.
