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!

Manny and the team at Dubon Flooring installed hardwood flooring (about 500 sf) at our home. Throughout the entire process Manny was always available for questions and shared his own recommendations. They finished the job on time and we would hire them again.

I had a small repair job that I needed done on my carpet. I had a really hard time finding someone who was willing to do such a small repair. Thankfully, Shawn Selden from Sharp Skill Floor Coverings saved the day! He came out to my home and took care of the repair, no problem. He was an incredibly nice guy! very courteous and honest. Shawn was upfront on pricing and was very reasonable. I will most definitely hire him again and also recommend Sharp Skill Floor Covering to any friends, family, or anyone who needs a flooring project done. Clearly, no job is too small...Thanks Shawn!

We recently hired Lan's Floor Care to installed hard wood floors in 2 upstairs rooms in our small cape house. From start to finish the experience working with Lan was pleasant and very professional. He was polite and very professional as he measured our space and discussed the options for the wood floor we wanted installed. We choose a pre-finished 3 1/4 inch red oak natural finish floor which Lan Flooring installed as promised in 2 days. The 2 rooms and the small hallway in between them were covered with wall to wall carpeting. In 2 days, our upstairs space was transformed because of the beautiful wood floor that installed by Lan. The quality of the wood product is excellent and Lan's expertise in installing the floor is evident in how well the floor was laid out. Hard working, honest, very clean and careful while working, and his price is very fair, Lan's Flooring is a contractor I highly recommend. We do intend to use him again in the future.

We hired 99Handy to install a washer and gas dryer. Installation was great, only issue was apparently someone was supposed to call and move our 10am appointment to 2pm, and never did. We waited around for more than an hour before calling them to discover the scheduling issue.

We hired Great Flooring to install luxury vinyl tile in our basement and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Not only did he do a great job installing the flooring he installed new trim around the walls. I would have hired Great Flooring again, but when we tried to schedule a time for them to come give us an estimate on the bathroom they never called us back.

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.

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.
