These guys were great! I was buying my own laminate flooring from lumber liquidators and wanted VRP Flooring to install it in my living room, dining room, hallway and steps. They came to the house for a free estimate and provided me with a list of the material I needed to complete the job along with a very fair price to do the install. I had a lot of questions concerning the install and the materials and they were always quick to provide me with an answer to my concerns. They arrived early on the day of the install and worked throughout the day to complete the job in just 1 day with 3 guys. They made sure I was happy with the job before they left and made sure to clean up the entire area along with removing the old rugs and empty laminate boxes. I also appreciated that they checked in with me the next day to make sure I was happy with the work and if I had any issues. I'm happy to report that everything came out excellent and there were no issues during or after installation.

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.

Daniel, was quick to respond. He did a nice job on installing laminate flooring for us in a large hallway. The finish came about beautiful and the cost was reasonable. We would certainly use him again on future projects.

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.

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!

Pedro was awesome! He came when he said he was going to and went out of his way to get the job done for us. We needed the ceiling and walls done in a kitchen. We were on a time crunch so he even made himself available on the weekend. We chose him because other reviewers said he worked hard. That was so true. He did an amazing job, has pride in his work and his price was reasonable. I wish I could post the before and after photos but I'm currently in Florida with my parents.

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

Jerry Davis and his crew installed a tile floor in my kitchen for me in Glastonbury Ct. They set the tile on a 45 degree angle which came out beautiful. Everything was completed in the span of a few days as promised. My house was left clean. It was truly a pleasure to have them work for me. I would recommend their services to anyone and plan on using them for future projects.

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.
