We had a engineered hard-wood flooring installed in our living room, dining room and kitchen. Andrean and his assistant were patient with my questions pre-install and gave me a great estimate which ended up being the exact cost of the job. He worked quickly and the end result was simply beautiful. They also hauled away our old carpet. I would definitely recommend him and will certainly use him again in the future.

This was the best decision my husband and I could have made when it came to working on our house. Chano and his team were exceptional. Chano and his team replaced our kitchen floor tile, refinished all the wood throughout our house, painted all our walls and ceilings, changed (and painted) all new 6 panel doors with new hardware, changed lighting and outlets and so much more. The work was done extremely clean and was always dusted and vacuumed for us. We never had to worry about making sure things we didn't think of were taken care of. His team always asked us questions to make sure we had the final decision even though we really didn't realize all the extras that were great ideas to think about before we started this project. They were always kind, courteous and willing to go above and beyond. The pricing was spot on with the perfection of the work. A Plus Decorating comes highly recommended from me. I would definitely look into their services if you are looking for great service and beautiful work in your home.

Amazing. Being a thumbtack top pro for two years in a row myself, I know what it means to go above and beyond. Peter was extremely meticulous, professional, honest, clean, efficient, and had outstanding craftsmanship while installing my wood flooring. I have hired him already to do all the base trim throughout my house. You won't find anyone better!

Radu did a great job restoring a red oak floor that had not been maintained for over 60 years. Through his expertise in wood flooring and floor refinishing techniques, he advised knowledgeably in selecting stain color and worked tirelessly to address gouges and other anomalies in the original flooring. He and his team were exceptionally professional and courteous throughout the process. As I finish a multi-year rehabilitation of the entire house, visitors comment first and most emphatically about the hardwood floor.

I hired Kosterna Construction to do various drywall projects, including building the framing and insulating the walls. They also put in support beams where needed, built a sub floor for tile in the kitchen, installed an exterior door with frame, built frames/molding around windows, evened out a sloping floor/ ceiling. I was able to buy my own materials and paid them for the labor. They are very experienced in all new construction and remodeling. Very nice, reliable, easy to work with. I thought they did great work for a fair price and plan on hiring them for future projects! attached are some photos

Mike installed laminate flooring throughout the main level of our townhome including the kitchen, dining room and great room. The entire job only took him one day to complete. He was thorough and extremely neat. It's been great having the laminate flooring since we have two pets which makes any clean-up fast and easy. We plan on using Mike whenever we move into our next home, especially, if there aren't hardward floors!

I have rental property as well as my Primary home and John has done several flooring jobs for me. He brings a lot of experience to your flooring needs. He has replaced wood flooring for one of the room and matched the wood and coloring to exact where I can not trell which is new and which is old. He has done refinished my entire house and my wife wanted a lighter color stain. It look wonderful and we could not be happier. He is very reasonable and his estimates are very accurate as he takes him time measuring so the home owner is not caught off guard with unexpected expenses at the end of the job. I recommend John to anybody as he exceeded my expectations in every job he has done for me.

Robert Chwalek and his team are some of the most hard working bunch of people I have had the pleasure of working with. I hired them to remodel my entire house. They stained all of the wood flooring. They installed new wooden flooring in a room. They repainted two and half rooms. They repainted all trims, crown moldings, and doors. They installed new electrical fixtures (lights, ceiling fans) across the entire house. They even remodeled all the bathrooms. Everything was done beautifully and on time. Robert's commitment to his craft is unmatched. His attention to detail and his team management skills are fantastic. The pricing for the entire project was fair as well. A special shout out to his team member Stanley for all his hard work and the long hours he put in to get everything done on time. In the end, I am very happy with the outcome of Chwalek's hard work. The whole team deserves more than five stars. I look forward to hiring them for future projects.

Sherman Flooring installed wood floors in my bedrooms. They completed the installation and finishing of the floors on time. Neal spent time discussing my color choices and finishes before completing the job. I expected to have a huge mess when they were done. This was not the case at all! I appreciated the work and would recommend them to my friends.

The entire experience from coming to measure the space, bringing samples of the flooring to the install was great! We had a couple of rooms that had carpet in them that we wanted wripped out and have hardwood laminate installed to match the rest of the condo. The guys went above and beyond to make sure that all of the transitions and capping of the upstairs area were done perfectly. Definitely recommend!

Hired Peter to install laminate flooring and refinish hardwood stairs. He did a great job and went the extra mile to make the job look good, also he came back on his day off to finish up when not all the custom stair nosing was in yet. Already talked about hiring him again for a stair railing and recommended him to friends and family.

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.
