Steve and his co-worker, Phil, did a terrific job. I could not be more pleased with everything about the service he provided. This includes his competitive pricing, timely performance, attention to detail and problem-solving when adjustments had to be made to accommodate an irregular basement floor and fieldstone foundation wall, and perhaps most of all working in difficult conditions and extreme heat. I cannot say enough about how pleased I was. I look forward to his continued involvement throughout the renovation of our 160-year home.

Mike is a true professional. He just finished installing drywall in our new 1000 Sqft basement remodel. Mike took the time to listen to our needs and expectations before the job got started, kept me informed throughout the job, and made sure to address any questions I had along the way. He quoted a fair price and stayed within budget. Mike was always timely and courteous. He has committed to standing by his product should there be any issues in the future. Can't ask for much more! I'm extremely satisfied with the outcome of this project and would strongly recommend Mike to anyone looking to have drywall work done!

It was a pleasure working with John and his wife Leanne. John did a fabulous job taping and painting at my home in addition to installing a new toilet and bathroom sink and refinishing the hardwood floor in one of the bedrooms. He was always punctual, pleasant to deal with, and took care to clean up after he was done. I would highly recommend John and will certainly keep him in mind for any future jobs.

Our church had some water damage in our kitchen which involved replacing the tile floor. To do that our pot sink, commercial range and dishwasher need to be moved. They were the only contactor that identified that the gas supply to the stove would have to be changed to meet code, that our sink/grease trap unit needed to be re-plumbed also to meet code. Sean is a great communicator always sending me an email at the end of day to recap what was done and what would be done the next day. All construction jobs have some unplanned hiccups! One day both workmen had health issues and were not able to work that day. We had built in extra time since our kitchen is heavily used, so we were OK. Their price was ver fair for us and them. I can recommend Handy and Some without ant reservation.

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.

We needed a couple of our wall-to-wall carpets stretched to take out some wrinkling. Hanson Floors performed the work and did an excellent job. We are very pleased with the results. They were easy to work with, arrived on time and completed the job within the timed that they estimated. They cleaned up well after completing the job, too. I recommend Hanson Floors for any flooring needs.

DF Floors is very professional. My floors look great, brand new, actually! They were in poor shape do to water damage, etc, but DF buffed it all out; incredible! Duilas (DF), is incredibly patient and is open to ideas and the home owner's thought and opinions. If you have a question or concern, just ask! For the homeowner, I would suggest reading up on hardwood floor repairs, refinishing on your own so you are knowledgeable about what can and cannot be done. I've experienced that a trade professional appreciates when the homeowner understands the limitations of the project, etc. DF Floors. I highly recommend Duilas and DF Floors for your hardwood floor needs, you will be VERY happy!

We recently had hardwood floors installed in every room of our townhouse in Hollis NH. Mike and his crew did an outstanding job and they were extremely dependable. The floors are absolutely gorgeous!!! We also recommended Diorio Flooring to several of our neighbors and after seeing our floors they hired him too. Thanks Mike, we all couldn't be happier.

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.
