Mark replaced the carpet in (4) bedrooms. He had excellent communication. He came out and evaluated the job and made a reasonable offer. He came to perform the job on time, did excellent work, and cleaned up after the job. All the corners were tight and no sags in the carpet. I would highly recommend Mark Combee's carpet installation to anyone that needed his services.

I was looking for someone to install wood flooring in my living, dining, master bedroom and kitchen. Daniel contacted me to come by and give me an estimate. I found Daniel, his cousin Patrick and his brother to be very knowledgeable and they made a couple of suggestions about the best way to install the floors, what they could do to fix a bad spot in the concrete the floor was being installed on and gave me a fair estimate. The morning of the install, the guys showed up on time, ready to get started. The Hickory wood I selected had multi-shades, so they asked me if I wanted to blend all the shades or try to limit the coloring. The install took 2 days, and my floors look beautiful. I did have to call Daniel to come back about 3 wks later to redo an area that I didn't like how the blend of colors looked. He and Patrick wanted to make sure I was happy with my floor, so they assessed the situation and came up with a plan to take the floors back about 8 rows, re-mix the wood pieces and put it all back together. I should have said something when I first noticed the area, but I thought it would look better as I got used to it. They had a very difficult situation to deal with, but they were able to resolve it to my satisfaction and I'm very thankful they are a company who truly wants to satisfy their customers. You won't be sorry

Within five minutes of me setting up my Thumbtack account I received a response and an appointment with Russell from Protrades. He was able to come to my house within a couple of hours and ready to work. He was completely flexible and actually completed a different tile project than the one I hired him for because he knew right away that I didn’t have enough tile for the backsplash that I wanted installed. He did a fantastic job on my floor tiles. As soon as I pick out new backsplash tile I’m giving him a call. I can’t recommend Protrades enough!

Job 1: over 1700 sq ft wood like tile flooring install with current floor demo Job 2: herringbone backsplash Job 1: 8”x48” planks and he did a fabulous job. Minimal lippage and he quickly addressed any tiles we wanted replaced. He staggered for a more woodlike appearance. Always on time and respectful to my home. Only con was a little cleanup left over. However, I can clean I can not install floor tile. I’d easily recommend him and already have. He’s middle of the road towards lower on my price estimates that I received. Job 2: Backsplash did not go as smooth. There was a communication error on the exact pattern I desired. I wanted herringbone on a 45 (didn’t know that was the term) and he installed herringbone on a 90. I felt both myself and Mark shared the blame and Mark nicely reimbursed me for half of the cost. I had a diff contractor redo backsplash bc Mark was booked for several weeks and I was ready to have renovations complete. Pros: on time, great work, great price, friendly Cons: leaves some cleanup

We were having a problem with our refrigerator door swinging open and hitting the wall. Using George's engineering skills he made a door stop and installed it. Problem solved! He also helped me install a floor. He is very efficient and dependable and trustworthy. If you have any home service problem George can probably solve it. We would highly recommend him for any job you may have.

Price was the best I had seen. He came out and gave me a good quote then showed up on-time the following day. He worked hard all day and got my house clean after a full remodel/renovation. The windows are so clean they almost look like mirrors! The downside were my floors: My main concern or item of greatest importance -- which was explicitly stated beforehand -- were my floors. I had a large amount of drywall dust in the new grout and he was unable to get it out. I ended up having to scrub the grout for 8-10 hours with industrial vinegar to get the grout clean again. That said, I would definitely use his services again. He worked hard from 9am to 7pm and my house looks great. If you want a detailed and clean then yes -- if you have stubborn construction dust... good luck

We hired Steve to help us update our home. This included a bathroom remodel, installing new floors, crown molding throughout the home, and adding a tray ceiling in the kitchen, just to name a few. He asked good questions and understood our needs as well as our budget. Steve made some great suggestions for our bathroom and kitchen, which we decided to go with. We value his opinion and are very happy with his work.

This is the first time using Thumbtack, and I was a little reluctant to use the service. After my wife decided to not let me do the project myself, we decided to give this site a try. Within a couple hours of submitting our request we were pair with three companies, one of which was AG Floors and More INC. Alex was the only company to provide an estimate initially with the disclaimer that it could change after seeing the project. Alex sent copies of important documents such as insurance and licenses, which helped with the decision. As for the project, I needed 20sqft travertine backsplash with a framed insert over the stove. During the project, Alex arrived on-time, and provided excellent advice as to how we could make the project look even better. Alex was extremely professional and displayed a keen attention to detail. He took his time to ensure every set of tiles were level and spaced perfectly. We couldn’t be more pleased with the project and will definitely recommend Alex from AG Floors and More INC for anyone needing tile work.

The people from Floor Coverings International - North Tampa were fantastic in selecting the right floor for my new fudge kitchen as well as helping with some repairs after we had did make some plumbing changes. They were consummate professionals who took an ownership in the project they weren't just doing it for the money. I felt like they genuinely cared for the success of my business overall not just for installing a good floor.

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.
