Peter and his team at IDC Flooring are the best of the best! We recently purchased a home that had some troublesome wood floors. They were popping, some separated, and just overall not something I wanted to keep in my home. Peter quickly came and assessed what needed to be fixed, provided a reasonable quote, and literally started the project within a couple days. My floors no longer pop, look great, and I couldn't be more pleased. What I appreciated most was how clean everything was left by him, Ion and Nick. If you need hardwood floor install, seriously only hire IDC Flooring, you'll be in great hands!

Special Floors did a good job for a good price.On completion of installation of new hardwood floors I noticed rippled look to the newly finished floor.Owner told me that it was normal for it to look that way due to the deflection of the floors while running his new sander on them .Other than that Special Floors were quick and on time to complete the job.

John and his team put in brand new, raw wood, hardwood floors in my home a few years back, kitchen, living room, dining room, and bathroom. They did an amazing job, from removal of old flooring, to install, to stain, to clean up. The end result greatly surpassed what I expected. In addition to a perfect job, they were professional and friendly and always respectful of my time and my home. I would recommend them to anyone, any size job! Lisa, homeowner, Naperville IL

Neal Sherman is amazing! He is everything you want in a home improvement project! I had my all my hardwood floors sanded, stained and 3 coats of finish done in my ranch. The floors look brand new. Neal, is honest, punctual, fair and makes sure the job gets done right without trying to add cost or cut corners. His work is meticulous. He took 5 days and did it right. A couple days sanding and the 2 coats of stain and letting it dry and the a few coats of polyurethane. I can't say enough! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Neal, it was a pleasure talking with you and being taken cafe of!!!

Nick, We would like to thank you and your entire team for the great job you did on our kitchen project. Starting with Alan helping us navigate through the overall kitchen design and canbinet and countertop selection, through all the modifications we requested on our first floor to the final cabinet installation. You electricians, plumber, trim carpenter, drywall crew and tile crew all did a great job, not to mention your hardwood floor guys. When we first contacted you we had no idea that you offered all these services. We made some changes during the project and you still completed everything when you said you would and at the price you quoted. What a great job, we could not be happier. Thanks again Mike and Aldona Rogers

Very satisfied with the whole process. Sergiu came out and gave options on what material we should use for the flooring. We are glad we went with his advise and chose to go solid hardwood and not engineered wood. He arrived promptly on the day of the project and worked seamlessly with us being in the house. The floor came out perfect as we had envisioned and it was the easiest color choice exercise. The finished project looks awesome and top quality. Definitely recommended for solid hardwood 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.
