I'm very happy that I hired Jerome to put together a day bed with trundle, which had large number of wooden slats on which the mattresses go, which needed to be all properly installed to provide the spring effect, aside from putting together the actual bed and a roll-out -- two large boxes with lots of small parts in which the item was delivered. Jerome has done a superb job, with a great attention to detail which was especially necessary in this case, but I didn't need to mention anything to him, he already knew the nuance with springy slats and their direction. He finished sooner than I thought it would take, which just shows his skill, experience, and resultant efficiency. He accommodated my schedule and did the job after 5 pm, which I appreciate very much as a customer with a busy schedule. I also want to note Jerome's great communication skills in that he kept communication to a necessary minimum, not requiring extra attention, direction, or decision-making on my part, yet I felt assured that he asked me all that I had to tell him and would ask me more should there be a need. In summary -- a fast, high quality work, with no frills, exceptions, breakdowns and excuses, just exemplary work ethic and professionalism -- all that combined with his most competitive bid on my project with a fixed price commitment (not an estimate and then an hourly rate for the actual work -- the experience I had before). I can't be more satisfied with Jerome and his work, would definitely call on him again for my future needs, will be suggesting him to my friends and recommend him to anybody who is considering hiring him. Thanks, Jerome.

If you need an IKEA hacker, G&M is for you!! Hired Greivin to retrofit IKEA cabinet systems for my quirky Manhattan apartment with uneven wall and floors. The project got complicated, with lots of troubleshooting required. The job was done as I expected. Greivin is professional, flexible and kind. Highly recommend him and would definitely hire him again. Thanks Greivin!!

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.

After a recent poor experience with a contractor on this site, we were a little gun shy! But James and his crews are definite pros. We had them install 2 vinyl tile and 1 ceramic tile floors. It was completed in the time he gave us. They were clean and courteous. And the work was done to our satisfaction. Will definitely hire him again

I hired Acosta Floors for refinishing hardwood floors on both levels of my house after getting quick response on my inquiry and very competitive quote. They were able to start when I needed and finish in reasonable time frame. Although I am very picky about details so I grade them as “good”. But I am quite satisfied with the quality of finish. The floors look great and it was done within my budget and expected time. What one more can wish for? The only suggestion I have is to paint your walls after your floors are done (I assume you doing it). The stain will get on some moldings and walls which will require additional touch ups. I was told about it by the Acosta guys but didn’t expect it will require that much of it. In short you’ll great solid value for quality job done on time.

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.

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.

Felipe did a great job laying 408 sqft of tile floor in my basement March 2017. I very much appreciated his honest consultative approach and his hard work to ensure the floor was level. His prices were affordable and he completed the work within the time frame he estimated. I would recommend at the very least you invite him over for insight and an estimate, you won't be sorry.

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.
