I give IDC Flooring a 5 star plus+. Peter (estimator), Ion (foreman) and crew are the best and take pride on excellent customer service. We received estimate and within 2 days we were scheduled for a hardwood floor install. The crew showed up on time and started working quickly. After the work had been completed, my husband had forgotten to mention that some of our air vents had old style caps on them and certain areas had to be redone to fit caps. No worries with IDC Flooring, we called Peter that night and the next day Ion and his crew showed up and fixed the issues. I would highly recommend them.

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.

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

I had old wall to wall carpeting removed and hardwood flooring installed in my new condo. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and the ease of working with Michael and his team. Besides getting the job right on schedule and the results being absolutely gorgeous, Michael also calmly handled a major issue with the installation material delivery that was 100% my fault. I'm looking forward to working with Advanced Floors in the future and highly recommend them to others.

Right on, from start to finish. Prompt reply when I asked to get a quote/come see the project. Demo'd powder room floor, installed new marble floor tiles...was so happy with the work (it's beautiful) I asked to add on installing new faucet, and put in two new junction boxes for new lights/sconces I purchased. Was going to have Marek paint the room as well, but I'm undecided on colors! I have a small project in the kitchen I need done in the near future, and I will definitely have Marek do the work. Very neat & tidy during the project. Great communication with Gracie before/during/after the project.

The Job: About 800sqft, prefinished hardwood floor installation plus baseboards and wood vents. The Results: Floors look fantastic. I met John for an estimate on Saturday, he began working the following Monday and was finished by Tuesday night. He assessed my needs, explained the complexity of the job and even offered up ideas to some issues I hadn't even thought about. He was very easy to work with, was very knowledgeable about his craft and I felt more than comfortable giving him the job even though he was not the lowest rate I could find. I have gone the route of using the cheapest labor I could find and you just don't get the quality of service or the speed that John was able to provide. If you're already spending a good deal of money on your materials, don't make the mistake of hiring just anybody. There is no way to fix a bad installation and your beautiful flooring won't look nearly as beautiful as it should. He also had ideas for other areas of the house and promised to give me some referrals for the work (kitchen cabinets/stair case). He was a pleasure to work with, you can't go wrong in hiring him.

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.
