Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best flooring for basements, kitchens and bathrooms?

When installing flooring in your home, keep in mind that some materials are better suited for certain rooms while others are not. Use this guide to help you make the best decision for your home.

Best Flooring for Basements

Basement flooring should be highly resistant to moisture, as many basements are below grade. Choosing the best flooring for basement spaces depends on what they’ll be used for. For example: 

  • An epoxy basement floor is a durable finish for concrete.
  • Vinyl basement flooring is generally waterproof or water-resistant. 
  • Laminate floors can be an affordable option, but they’re often not 100% waterproof.
  • Ceramic tile floors are also water-resistant. 

If your basement isn’t moist, carpet tiles are also an option — just make sure to use a moisture barrier.

Best Flooring for Kitchens

Kitchen flooring does more work than almost any floor in the house, so you’ll want to choose a durable floor. The following are among the best flooring types for kitchens:

  • Porcelain tiles can be fashionable, moisture-resistant, and cost less than stone or wood to install.
  • Vinyl flooring can withstand dents, is generally inexpensive and it’s easy to install.
  • Linoleum flooring can be durable, easy to maintain and affordable. 
  • Wood flooring could be damaged by dropped pots and pans, furniture and pets. However, hardwood and engineered wood floors in kitchen spaces are still popular among homeowners.

Best Flooring for Bathrooms

Bathroom flooring must withstand high moisture levels while also being comfortable on bare feet. Here are some of the best flooring options for bathrooms: 

  • Porcelain tiles are generally comfortable, waterproof, stylish and less costly than stone or wood. 
  • Vinyl flooring is waterproof, cost-effective and can imitate wood convincingly.
  • Natural stone can be expensive, but it’s typically hard and durable.

Reach out to a flooring installation and repair professional near you to see which type you should install in your home.

What is the best flooring for dogs?

Waterproof or scratch-resistant flooring is typically the best flooring for dogs. This includes: 

  • Vinyl: Vinyl may not add much to the value of your home, but it is resistant to scratching, stains, dents and accidents. Plus, it’s an affordable option.
  • Tile: Tile is generally water-resistant and scratch-proof, and more affordable than hardwood or stone.
  • Laminate: Laminate is not truly waterproof, but it is tough and often more scratch-resistant than other wood floorings. 

Remember that solid hardwood is susceptible to damage, including dents, scratching, licking and accidents. But if you want to install wood floors, the best hardwood floors for dogs are typically made out of maple, Brazilian walnut or bamboo.

For more tips on choosing the best flooring for dogs, talk to one of the best flooring installation professionals near you.

How much does it cost to install flooring?

The national average cost to install flooring is $5,500, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 . Your cost can be much lower or higher depending on the type of flooring you select, the square footage of the project, and other important variables like demolition and repair work needed.

Here are some examples of floor installation costs, depending on the material:

Is it worth it to hire a professional flooring specialist?

Unless you have plenty of experience installing the type of floor you want, it is worth it to hire a professional flooring specialist. 

The first reason is tools — pros have them, and they know how to use them. Without the proper experience, there is a high risk of injury with nail guns and power saws. A good pro also works quickly, saving you time that you could spend doing other things. 

Finally, a pro gets you past options paralysis by helping you decide the best flooring for different rooms and areas of the home.

Reviews for New York flooring installation and repair professionals
Estee H.
Really shocked at the lack of professionalism by ProFloorGuru given his other reviews. First impression of Gary was a good one however soon after, it was clear how mistaken my first impression was. Gary’s communication throughout this process were sarcastic (at best) leaning towards completely disrespectful. My floor installation was a job that should have taken 2 hours-it is a floor that is click in place vinyl tile. Gary sent a team who didn’t seem to know how to install cali bamboo vinyl (this material was shown to Gary days before the installation) and as a result of their lack of knowledge, this installation took a total of 10 hours (the room size is 10x10!) In addition, the floor was installed poorly and improperly leading to the need for more materials as well as leaving scratches on my new floor. The largest issue was that the floor installers did not leave the 1/4 inch needed for expansion between the wall and the start of the floor-I informed Gary after the first day and the men who came back manually chopped at my floor to try and create the gap needed between the end of the floor and the wall-needless to say this caused damage. I am not sure how someone can call themselves a professional floor installer if they don’t know the basics of putting down a floor. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for a floor installer.

The team did a great job in installing my Cali Bamboo wood flooring in the living room and hallway of my apartment in Manhattan. Got the work done quickly, great price, paid attention to details and the floors look beautiful. Will definitely hire them again for my next flooring project. Thank you!

Koleci and his partner did some work work at my condo. They were so professional in their work. A 3 day job was done in 1 day. They laid laminated floors in my bedroom. My floor looks so beautiful. They were quick and efficient. My friends gave me so many compliments how great my floors look. I highly recommend them to the highest degree. Believe or not they can do anything. I just love my floor........

Words cannot describe how in awe I am with the look of my new flooring installed by Danilo. Danilo was responsive, prompt and professional. All questions and concerns I had were addressed with care and courtesy. After the installation of my flooring Danilo meticulously swept and vacuumed the entire area, leaving the space spotless. Prices were fair and I’ve already referred him to a few of my friends. Majestic Floors really stands up to their name!!

We had Edwin remove old carpet and baseboard, and install engineered hardwood Armstrong floors and new baseboard in an old apartment in New York. We previously had another contractor come in and they installed the first room incorrectly, so Edwin and his guys came in and pulled the floor up and reinstalled the floor correctly, without making a ton of extra waste. A time for completion was agreed upon, and Edwin hit it without a problem. There was a lot of communication over text and pictures and if there was something we were concerned with, Edwin worked with us to find a solution.

Nemanja made it possible for my new apartment to look as good as it does right now due to him putting in my new floors. He did this job fast and was able to do it very well without much of an issue. He did his very best here to make sure my floors were perfect. I would recommend his work to others for sure.

Daniel is very trustworthy. He and his guys did an absolutely amazing job on my condo flooring. It used to be covered by old carpet and everything looks so old; however after the wood flooring and tiling by Daniel’s team, my apt looks so much nicer! His price is also very competitive comparing to what I googled near me (south Harlem), saved me a fortune. He is through and detailed, step by step you can tell is good quality and many years of flooring experience. Very responsive, polite and easy to communicate with even for me who had no experience with construction what so ever. Highly recommended!!

Carlos and his team did an amazing job on our flooring. We purchased the floor and they installed it with the baseboard molding. Very professional and listen to exactly what we wanted. He also finished the job within the days he planned on. HIs crew came back to touch up some things that we noticed needed a little touch up. I recommend this company and Carlos 100 percent. Great job!!!! thank you!

I’ve been a general contractor for 33 years and DL flooring is the best subcontractor I’ve found in decades. Great workmanship, price and they showed up on time and finished the job early. Can’t say enough good things about this company.

So I just want to say that I'm not the type of person who leaves reviews, but the team there at Streets and Avenues were great. First and foremost, my floors were probably the most crooked floors possible, and there were lots of corners - not a job for the DIY homeowner like me. When I sent the inquiry, they responded really quickly, and instantly set up time to look at the job. They were so polite, came with shoe coverings when walking in my house, and communicated to me exactly what was needed. They also didn't come off as pushy or salesy, and it was clear that they are really passionate about the work they do. They also were one of the only companies to warranty the work, and once they were done, it came out so perfect. I'm overall really happy with the job and I highly recommend them.

If I could give 6 stars I would! Ndue and his team were able to turn a disaster that was caused from a previous contractor into beautiful wood floors in a matter of 8 days. He was very knowledgeable and helped us make decisions along the way of how best to optimize results. I will be contracting Ndue for any future remodeling projects that I will need. He is reliable and fair through and through.
