I cannot recommend Mario enough! I found him on Thumbtack while I was in Georgia preparing to purchase our house in Iowa. He was quick to reply and easy to work with. Through emails and one phone call, we worked out the details and Mario followed through with the projects. We had Mario paint the interior of our house - INCLUDING painting our wood built-in cabinets and shelves white - and painting our 12 foot ceilings. They are beautiful and are not chipping at all on the polyurethaned wooden cabinets (which means he sanded and prepared perfectly!). Mario showed up when he said he would, and he always cleaned up after himself. I have not found any paint on our floors or carpets - he is very thorough and organized. We will call him whenever we need anything done in our home. My husband already has other projects for him! On top of being an amazing worker, I have to mention what an absolutely WONDERFUL man Mario is. He is enthusiastic and determined to please his customers. He is truly NICE and respectful. You will be very pleased! And - lastly - I would be failing miserably in this review if I didn't mention that Mario is an artist. While he was finishing up a job for us this morning, Mario and I discussed art. He ended up bringing in his portfolio. I am an art teacher and artist myself... I was blown away by his talent. His style is gorgeous! Ask to see his personal portfolio if you get a chance! His work is amazing! (thank you, thank you, thank you, Mario, for helping us out so much!

They did a wonderful job. They went above and beyond by moving the furniture that I couldn't move myself as well as helping me bring the new flooring in the house (even though I'm laying it myself). They even took my trash out for me! They were polite and worked hard until the job was done. Great job.

They were punctual and professional for a fledgling business. Both had more than ample past experience in the construction field. Took on this small project with flooring that they'd never worked with and installed it perfectly. They'd be my first call for any home improvement projects.

We were trying to meet a deadline with our tile installation on our new construction home. I contacted Hinton at very short notice and they were able to complete our kitchen backsplash for a very reasonable amount. We were very happy with the job that Michael did I would highly recommend them.

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.
