I experienced water damage (leaking roof) and needed to have my hardwood floors repaired (damaged boards) and resurfaced. The area covered much of our first floor (kitchen/dining + hallway and 2 bedrooms)...about 875 sq ft. I obtained bids from several contractors on Thumbtack, but after speaking to each, put my trust Procare Restoration. Paul (flooring expert) visited my home, explained what was needed, and was very knowledgeable. John, at the Procare office was very prompt on providing an estimate and working with me on the specifics. Paul returned to perform the work himself (and did a fantastic job!) and was punctual, polite, and professional. The floors look great and I would recommend Procare!

Peter did a great job from the start! Polite, on time, answered my questions, promptly giving me a quote. He answered his phone-many others never answered or were slow to return my call. Pricing was very reasonable. Started and completed the job exactly when I wanted it done. As for the hardwood floors- fantastic! I even asked him what other skills he had because I wanted to use him again for other projects!

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

He explained every step in detail and there were no hidden charges or unexpected expenses.

I was referred to Sherman Flooring when I needed to replace the hardwood floors in my condo. I cannot say enough good things about Neal & his crew! This was not an easy job as the original flooring was 100 years old. Neal Sherman was incredibly hardworking, honest & his attention to detail is impeccable. I HIGHLY recommend Sherman Flooring. The floors look amazing & I am so pleased with every aspect of this project! Truly a job VERY well done!

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!

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.
