We hired Trust Flooring to install hardwood floors throughout our first floor. We already had hardwood in three of the rooms but had to remove tile, carpet, and plywood subfloor in order to make all of the floors level. Andrean was willing to let us do a lot of this prep as a money-saving effort and even stopped by a few times to guide our work. Because of prior foundation settling, they had to repair some of the existing hardwood where vertical and lateral offsets had caused some significant defects. They were prompt, responsive, and worked every minute they were in our home. They just finished the installation, staining and varnishing, and the floors look fantastic!

I met Tom after the first contractor I hired to remodel my home stopped showing up on time and eventually walked off the job. I was in a panic and found Tom on Thumbtack. He was the first person to respond to me and was at my house to give me a quote within 2 hours that same day. I met with 5 different contractors that day and hired Tom because of his professionalism and knowledge of what needed to be done. I was replacing all the floors throughout my home (including 2sets of stairs), re-doing my fireplace, painting the whole house, painting cabinets & rails. Framing and installing a new door and he replaced all of my baseboards throughout my home as well. He was at my house the very next day, like he said he would, with a full crew and getting everything done for me. His prices were extremely reasonable too. It was a huge relief having him there and taking care of things for me! He was like my knight and shining armor and road in on his white horse and totally saved the day for me!! I would highly recommend him to get your job done on time and at a very reasonable price!! Thank you, Tom!!

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.

Slawek was early for appointment and was true to his word about his experience as a floor refinisher. As a union Carpenter I considered renting tools and refinishing floor myself. I could not rent the quality tools perfect flooring brought to properly sand my floors. For the little bit of extra money and time I would have had to put in it was well worth hiring perfect flooring to complete my floors ! He was very professional and had professional tools to sand and refinish the floors. He also came back to add an additional coat of urethane due to the dryness of the floors. If you are looking to refinish your hardwood floors I would highly recommend perfect flooring! Awesome job !!

Neal did a lot of work for us in our 100+ year-old home in downtown Saint Charles. I wasn't sure that our original 1.5 inch maple hardwood floors upstairs could be saved but he was able to do it! We also had several loose posts/ballusters that need to be tightened and repaired. I thought we were going to have to replace them but they are now secure! We were so pleased with his work upstairs that we had him refinish our main stair treads (which were previously incorrectly sanded). They look brand new! He was very reasonable/fair on price. Overall, he's just a great guy and hard worker. We would definitely recommend him and will call him again in the future.

My existing hardwood floors were carpeted when I moved in and for the past 20 years, after pulling up the rug, I've been living with them as they were (stained, scratched & aged). After they have been sanded, stained & varnished I've was asked several times if I had new floors laid. I will definitely call back to have my other rooms done next year.

Me and my wife recently purchased a house in Plainfield and we were referenced to Lucian from Posh American Flooring to finish our hardwood floors. Lucian came for an estimate, explained everything , took measurements and gave really reasonable price. We had few estimates scheduled for that day, but after all decided to go with this company and that was right decision to make. They stained and finished our floors in a timely fashion and for an affordable price . They ensured positive customer satisfaction through professionalism, punctuality and genuine work. I highly recommend this company. Thank you

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.
