Based on Thumbtack reviews I hired Pat Kuehlewind to work on a renovation project on my 1941 home and am very pleased that I did. The first phase of the project scope included removing built-in shelving and repairing a window frame, altering a wood fireplace surround to achieve a contemporary style, removing carpets and carpet tack/ staples in readiness for floor refinishing, removing a dividing wall in the foyer to open it up and plastering in readiness for painting, removing base board and crown molding, removing wall paper, and updating light switches and sockets. Pat has a lot of experience in the carpentry and home improvement business and it shows. He is also very personable and I've really appreciated all Pat's advice during the 9 days he and his team worked on my house. Pat and his team have a great work ethic - they work until the job is done and clean up after themselves. I was working to a tight schedule to have the work finished and Pat and his team even agreed to work over the Labor Day weekend to make ensure we met the deadline which was hugely appreciated. Pat will be back to do the second phase of my renovation project to install new baseboard and crown molding, a TV mount - and I've already got a list of other home improvements I'm going to entrust to him. I can highly recommend Pat if you are looking for an experienced professional.

We hired Jimmy Hovey to refinish the hardwood floors in our home. We were very pleased with Jimmy Hovey and his crew from start to finish. I have never worked with a contractor with the kind of integrity that Jimmy had. He showed up when he said he would, sent me things when he said he would, and was just incredibly trustworthy. They also did a beautiful job on the floor and it was in pretty bad shape! We are so pleased and wouldn't hesitate to hire Jimmy again!

David and Julie did a great job of letting us know exactly what needed to be done and when they were going to do it. They helped us along in knowing what we needed to order and showed up on time when they said they were going to. I would hire them again when I had another project. Floor looks great!

We are very happy that we hired Gilson Home Renovations. We hired Shawn to change the layout of our kitchen, fix water damage to the bathroom floor and turn our sun room into a mudroom. We wanted to install the cabinets and flooring ourself so we asked him to basically prep the spaces for what we had planned. He did a great job and rolled with the punches when there were problems (water damage to sunroom walls and more extensive demo the originally thought). His quote and the final cost were spot on. Our neighbors commented that they appreciated him not leaving a messy work site. His work was great and he clearly knows what he is doing. We will certainly hire him again for our future projects.

    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.
