We are very pleased with our choice of Frank to do the job of putting together and installing our IKEA kitchen. Anyone who has put together IKEA furniture before knows it's quite a task! He is a family-owned business and works wonderfully with his son and wife. It was a pleasure getting to know them, all while watching our kitchen come together! Frank is thorough and precise about his decisions, always making sure we were happy. He saved us a good chunk of money, costing significantly less than the cost of the IKEA installers, while still doing a professional job. Best of all, we created a friendship with him and his family. They were so sweet to our 5 & 2 year old sons and were beyond trustworthy. Sometimes when you hire someone to do work in your home that requires a few days to accomplish, you can't wait to just have it done and have 'strangers' out of your house. I can honestly say that it was hard to say goodbye to him and his family when the job was done. Thank you Frank! We would do it all over again if we had to. We will add photos of the finished kitchen when our backsplash is done later this week!

I requested a hardwood flooring installation labor cost for my first floor via Thumbtack and recieved three quotes. Noel from OTB Tile, one of the quoter, came in my house for actual measurement then gave final cost. He was chose becuase of the costless and I felt he was realiable as well. He told me the installation could take more than two days however he would try his best. Noel and his helper started and finished the service on time in two days as he promised. The day before starting up he sent a message to my phone to confirm for the next day install. They moved all furnitures to safe place then put them back after finishing. They removed old carpet with caution so there was no mess in house. The job was done on 8/29/2014. I love my new hardwood flooring. I highly recommend him to somebody who needs hardwood flooring or tile installation. Thanks Noel for great work and professional.

Jose and his crew did a remarkable job framing and installing a new wood (plywood) floor in my 115 year old outbuilding! It required real know-how to get this floor level on this unevenly settled building (18X16)! He also added some bracing to the roof to insure the building was sound and sturdy going forward. Most remarkable of all is he arrived early, and DID NOT LEAVE until the job was completely finished in one day!!!! All this for $1200. I recommend if you are LUCKY enough to receive a bid from G & I builders....Jump on it! You will not be disappointed!-Diane Collins, Monroe, NC!

If you're looking for flooring installation, Burgess Flooring is the way to go. Joe just installed laminates in the downstairs of my house, and completed the whole job in one day. The floors look great, and I couldn't be more pleased. The floors changed the whole look of my house, and the workmanship down to the little details far exceeded my expectations. So if you're looking for a great price and someone who takes pride in his work, look no further than Joe at Burgess Flooring.

I obtained quotes from several painting companies in the Charlotte area, and ultimately decided to use BWH Services due to Ben Hamrick’s professionalism, the company’s reasonable pricing, and seeing their paint work that had been done in another person’s home. I hired BWH Services to paint all of the interior walls in my new construction home, and my experience was great. The job took approximately 4 days. The crew was polite, and covered our brand new flooring very well and cleaned up after themselves when the job was done. My only request at the final walkthrough was for an additional coat of paint on a very dark color that we chose to use in one room, which Ben took care of immediately on that same day. Our home looks beautiful with freshly painted walls and I would definitely use BWH Services again and recommend them to friends and family. Thanks, Ben! -Lauren Mikulan

Dan and his team are AMAZING and I feel so grateful to have found them! They are excited to work on my home which included almost an entire remodel...Removing walls in the kitchen for an open floorpan, completely remodeling the kitchen, moving a bathroom, moving the laundry room upstairs and creating a mudroom in it's place. Building into unused attic space to create a walk in closet and bathroom in my daughter's bedroom and remodeling and rearranging our master bathroom. Not to mention all the new flooring, cabinets, and drywall where there was once popcorn ceilings. And they were EXCITED to do it. Most people I interviewed were overwhelmed at the task or WAY too expensive. He was priced fairly yet the work quality is far superior to other remodeled homes I have seen. Don't even waste your time with other companies. I love that I felt like we were working together as a team and he was always willing to spend time with me making sure I felt comfortable with each step!

I've had several projects completed through Thumbtack and this has by far been my best experience. Geoff completely removed and replaced my front yard mailbox. The communication and completion of work was prompt and I was very pleased with the outcome. The smoothest home repair experience I've had - I didn't even have to take off work to be on site. He handled everything (purchasing, installation, removal). I will definitely use Summit Solutions for future needs!

I was so happy with the work that Rudy and his guys completed. They were able to work with my schedule and they completed the job in time for my big family event - everyone was so impressed with my tile flooring and backsplash in the kitchen. All the workers were friendly and professional... I will definitely get these guys again for my next renovation!

I can’t say enough good words about the team at floor coverings international. We had 3 quotes altogether and it was the professionalism of James Allbee and his patience with us (we’re not the best at making quick decisions!) that made it an obvious choice. From start to finish the communication was fantastic and the guys who actually installed the flooring were just as great. They dealt with our demon puppy and finished the job to a great standard!

I can’t thank Jennsey & his crew of polite gentleman enough, working diligently and professionally to install my new flooring! As a first time home buyer, I had loads of things to consider: how much money to spend for move-in ready repairs, options on service providers, tight scheduling and who to trust. Jennsey never once let me down & aided me every step of the way as though we’d been personal friends for years. That is true time & attention to his clients, proven to be utmost professionals, aiming for complete client satisfaction. They will be the only crew I’ll ever work with in the future. I’d also speak with anyone needing to personally hear this referral as well. Thank you, Jennsey! Katie Reilly

I liked the Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value and Punctuality of Jay Drywall and Painting Remodeling. Jackson Chavez, Professional Clean and Safety On July 10, 11 and 12, 2018 Jackson Chavez, Supervisor and two men came to my 1,320 square feet townhouse and painted every interior room including the garage. The whole process of getting my townhouse painted was handled in a very professional manner. I live in my townhouse and they moved and replaced the heavy furniture with no problem. The two men patched all small nail wholes and painted. The two men did a very good job by painting on the walls only. The price that was charged to me was also very fair and reasonable. I would hire Jackson Chavez and his team again. A job very well done. This review is from Teresa of Rock Hill, South Carolina.

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.
