Greivin was on time and very professional. He Demo'd out my bathroom tile floor and subfloor to access a broken drain pipe. He taped and protected the surrounding so dust wasn't every where. I would use his services again.

We needed a plumbing repair late Sunday afternoon at my parents home (60 year old house with original copper plumbing). They had found water on the floor of their finished basement. It was not gushing, but a steady drip. We shut off the water to the house. Matt responded quickly through Thumbtack, and was at the house within a couple hours. It was a cracked fitting, which he repaired. Price was reasonable, he was professional and we will use him again. He also called the next day for follow-up.

Giovanny did a great job for my basement pointing project. I just moved into a house that was recently renovated but originally built in 1892. The previous owners heavily prioritized cosmetic changes but did not do any foundation/structural work work. The brick foundation was quite crumbly and some bricks were missing. Giovanny estimated that pointing hadn't been done for probably 15 years. There was a layer of paint over the bricks as well so Giovanny had to scrape the paint in order to do the pointing. I also needed the base of my front steps (underneath the structure) to be filled in and smoothed over and for him to fix a pretty big crack where the outside concrete stairs meet the house. Giovanny was able to beat a quote from another thumbtack pro and gave me a very reasonable price. Giovanny was punctual, professional, finished the job in two days. The only area for improvement worth noting is clean up. I did have to request that Giovanny clean up the mess on the basement floor before he left. He did the best he could without any cleaning supplies. He didn't bring any and I just moved in so everything was in boxes. But in spite of this, he still deserves the full 5 stars as his work is high quality for a fair price. I will be hiring Giovanny again for any masonry needs in the future.

They helped install a great floor for good value. The tenants were very happy. I would give them 5 stars but I was not satisfied with their installation of a bathroom door. The door they bought did not fit the frame, so they cut part of the old door and nailed it to the top to cover up the open space. So they made a mistake in the measurements, but they tried their best to fix their mistake. However, the bathroom door now looks janky. Luckily the tenants were okay with this, but I docked them a star because the door will need to be changed again some time in the future.

Absolutely delighted with our new hardwood floors! On a friend's recommendation, Daniel Lituma in Peekskill installed engineered hardwood on two levels and carpeting. As the contractor, he answered all of my questions and worked very carefully and cleanly. We are pleased with price, value and the results. He's a real craftsman. I highly recommend Daniel and his company... and will use for our next kitchen project!

I hired them for major renovation of my house such as floor, entire kitchen, opening a wall, painting, central air, French drain, front steps, etc. They also get ready for our rental floor on time, so we can rent it timely manner. Price was very reasonable, but last 10% of work took very long time. It was very annoying that it got delay so long since first 90%of work was done faster than expected. However, they were honest about why it was delayed which I liked about. After all, I would hire them again for further house renovation.

It was a pleasure to work with Gama. He arrived when he said he would, charged me what he said and more importantly did a great job putting down floor tiles. I had my fair share of bad experiences with contractors and he was refreshing to work with. I am going to call on him for other work I need done

New flooring was installed throughout our work office. The process in general went fairly smoothly. The timeline was extended a bit, but because working hours are limited in a doorman building that could have been expected. All in all a great job!

Luis accommodated me for a free estimate and shortly after completed my hardwood floors which included staining as well. He assisted me with getting beautiful floor vents for my central air and also purchased and installed the saddle needed prior to the flooring job. He worked late and arrived very early to enable us to be back in our home within a few days. The floors came out amazing and he was professional throughout. I highly recommend using L&M Flooring.

I had a great experience with Corniel Construction. Waldy and his team remodeled my bathroom. New floor tile, new shower tile, new shower faucet, new toilet and new vanity. They did a great job having this done for me and their price was very reasonable. I was impressed with the communication of Waldy. He was very responsive, answered any questions I had and made sure I was informed throughout the job. They were clean and made sure the job was done right. I liked what they did so much I asked them to come back and replace my other toilet. Overall great experience and would use them agian.

It is my pleasure to recommend the excellent work of Rick Doggett who was the general contractor for a remodeling project of my apartment in Jersey City. From the initial interaction and proposal phase through construction and the timely completion of the job, Rick and his crew performed at the highest level of professionalism, work ethics, and dedication. The work involved a complete re-structure of the internal floor plan, moving walls, installing new fixtures, hardwood floor and carpet, electrical, plumbing, and painting, while communicating with an owner who was not on location. I would, with no hesitation, engage Rick in any future construction or remodeling that will come-up. Thank you Rick and crew for a wonderful job.

My wife and I had All Rise Flooring install hardwood floors in every room of shore house in Deal, NJ. Can not say enough about the level of professionalism throughout the entire process. We felt extremely comfortable with the owner, as he was very personable and quick to respond to calls/emails with any questions we had. He even followed up 2 weeks after the job to make sure everything was still in place. Pricing was fair and well worth the quality of work/service we received. A+

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.
