We are more than satisfied with the work that was done. We hired Bobby to install our pergot flooring. He not only agreed to my short notice but he was on time and completed entire job in one day. He took up and old ceramic floor and replaced with beautiful flooring. He went over and above what was expected from him. I would hire him again in a second. If you want quality work he is your only choice!

We had LAN's Floor Care install hardwood flooring in our kitchen and family room after they removed carpet and tile in same area. We are very happy with the results and with overall service we received. The floors look beautiful and Lan was very professional. We had him give us a quote months in advance as we were away all winter but he kept his word and saved a time for us. We would recommend Lan to any of our friends and would certainly use him again in the future! Nancy and Jack Mac

John laid wood floors for us, did demo and install of our new tile in our kitchen and bath, replaced our vanity and toilet and put up our new breezeway door. John was always prompt and friendly. He is a great guy and worker. He was willing to help my husband move furniture. His installation cost was much lower than Home Depot's install estimate and he was our best or matched estimate here. We are grateful for John's work. We occasionally had a difference of opinion on style or color, and John's work days vary in length. Sometimes we felt like we wished he had stayed longer to get more accomplished, but the work he was doing was hard labor so we understand the physical aspect of this job for one man. He did leave us with a few loose ends, that we will finish ourselves. Overall good experience and we are glad that we hired John.

I hired Great Flooring to install new flooring as I hated the carpet that was there threwout the condo I just purchased. Wilson who is the owner of this company personally installed the laminated floors and did an awesome job! I also ended up hiring him to remove all the wallpaper in the living room, dining room and two bedrooms and paint the walls. Both projects were done very professionally and was completed by the date it was promised to be finished. I was very pleased with their work and I highly recommend hiring Wilson and his painter Dimas as they both take pride in their work.

Ryan installed hardwood flooring in three bedrooms of our new house. Talking to him beforehand, we could tell he knew his stuff and decided to hire him. When we went to check out his work we were impressed. Ryan was very easy to work with, super easy to contact, and professional. We would certainly recommend him.

Paul and his team recently renovated our bathroom and they were fantastic! They completely gutted the bathroom, removed the bath and built a walk in shower, tiled the floor and the shower walls, applied wainscoting and installed all new fixtures as well as waterproofing our window. They helped us out with design ideas purchased the tile and other plumbing parts, waterproofed the shower and we're happy to pick up all the other items we had ordered including the shower doors. Paul and his team were always punctual and worked hard throughout the day, they even came on a Saturday to work on the bathroom so we would have it ready sooner. They cleaned up after the work was finished and took away all the trash. The quote was very reasonable. We would highly recommend Supreme Home Improvement.

Russ and his team was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to my inquiry (leveling my floors for a floating wood installation) and even adjusted his projects to fit my tight timeframe. He provided tips for other renovations we are doing throughout the house and even allowed up to borrow tools needed to do so. we have worked with several contractors over the last few weeks and Russ by far was the more professional.

Rogerio was excellent to work with...extremely reasonable, patient, and responsive. I used him to install about 1200 sq ft of vinyl plank tiling throughout a rental property. They were able to install all of the flooring in just one day and also included trim for a low cost. I was being particular about a couple of scratches I was concerned about and he fixed them at no charge. We were so pleased with his work that we gave him a little extra for a job well done. Would highly recommend his services.

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.
