Installed 3 rooms of carpeting. They arrived on time. They did a great job. Cleaned up and vacuumed the rooms. We provided the carpet. We purchased two 15' wide rolls and one 12' wide roll because we did not want any seems. I wanted a specific trim strip at the edge of the living room. Adrian was very accommodating. We discussed options for the doorways in the two bedrooms. We will install a reducer to match the bamboo wood flooring in the hallway. The doorways are finished with the tackless strips, but long term, we want to use the reducer over the area where the carpet meets the wood floor.

I like my new floor! I had Andean and his partner (1) screw down the subsurface to reduce squeaking and (2) install the hard wood flooring. Andean was responsive to come for the estimate. He gave a reasonable price, started work on time and finished on time. I enjoyed watching this team doing their work. They were receptive to my questions and concerns. The finished product looked good. Two small improvements could be made: (1) some n-shaped nails from the nail gun are too close to the wood surface /edge (vs on the wood-tongue) that made the wood covering the nail stuck out (heaved a tiny bit) thus looking a tiny bit damaged. Should avoid this. (2) when the installer put the wood putty to cover the nail holes, he appeared to smear the extra putty off his finger on the near-by area, thus there are small patches of smear that I need to clear off in many places. No big deal on my part but again this could have avoided by wiping the extra putty on a piece of paper. Overall I am happy with the work and I will recommend the service.

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!

We hired IDC flooring to rip up carpets and refinish our entire 4 bedroom home that we had just purchased. Some areas had hardwood flooring underneath and some areas had tile or sub floor. Peter and his crew turned up at 8 am the morning after our closing and began ripping up all the old carpeting at breakneck speed and set to work sanding. We increased the scope of the job when we decided we didn't want our tile foyer and asked them to rip it up and install wood flooring. They worked through the entire weekend to get the job done for us to be able to keep our moving schedule on track. I was amazed when I saw the new floors they installed - the transition areas are perfect - I can't even tell what was old and what was new. We chose dark walnut for our stain and we LOVE it. Our refinished floors have breathed new life into our 1950s house - what a great way to get started with our transformation. This crew works hard, fast and are very good at what they do. Their pricing was also competitive and Vasi was able to quote the work based off the property listing photos and square footage.

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.

Michael Carso, the owner of Advanced Flooring is a thief. Beware! He asks for the money for the materials up front. Foolishly, I paid him $3700.00 cash up front in order to get a discount. Big mistake!!! He took the money and now 9 weeks later, the job has not even started and he will not respond to texts or return my phone calls. I will now have to report him to the Better Business Bureau, the Attorney General consumer fraud division and file a lawsuit against him for the return my $3700.00. Based on my experience, I have to believe that all of the positive reviews on this website are posted by Mr. Carso himself or others on his behalf. Let my experience be cautionary tale. Whatever you do, do not hire Michael Carso and Advanced Flooring. He stole $3700.00 from me. Don't let that happen to you.

Raul and his team do great work. He was speedy on his response and showed me a property he was working on where I wanted a similar flooring finish. He is responsive and worked with my timeline and requests. There was an issue with the top coat on the floor, but he addressed it immediately and professionally the same day it was noticed.

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.

As a general contractor myself, I've dealt with many flooring contractors but working with Hardwood and Co has been the best experience hands down! This project was a townhouse we are flipping and the floors were in despair, but I cannot believe the transformation. I plan on working with Hardwood and Co for all future hardwood refinishing projects.

We had an excellent experience with Dirty Deeds LLC. Our job entailed painting our living room, dining room and upstairs hallway, all of the wood trim and all of the doors in those rooms. It also included painting the structural beam that supports the roof and ceiling over the living room and dining room. Jay arrived on time for the estimate and was very precise in his calculations. During the four days of the job, Jay and his painters were always on time, had all the materials \they needed, moved furniture as needed and covered everything. All surfaces had at least two coats of paint. The quality of their work was excellent and although it was offered, we found no need for a call back for any touchups. We couldn't be more pleased with their work and 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.
