Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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:

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.

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.

BC Builders did a first floor hardwood floor install in my home this past spring. I have been waiting to write this review to ensure the floors would remain in place, not warp or otherwise fail due to the install. As floors become exposed to temperature changes, humidity and foot traffic they can quickly degrade if not installed properly and it is with much pleasure I can confirm the floors are still as beautiful and intact as the day they were installed. Willian is great to work with, his pricing is ultra competitive and he is exceedingly knowledgeable about flooring installation. He correctly advised me on multiple items and I am glad I went with his advice. His crew works fast and efficiently and does the job right not just quickly. I would highly recommend using Willian and his team for any of your flooring installation needs.

Willian and his crew did a great job! They installed hardwood floors on our entire first floor. Willian is knowledgable about flooring and install. He responded quickly to my many questions via text. He and his crew were on time and worked hard to get the job done quickly. We had a few difficult areas, as we have a radiator heat system and floor outlets, but when brought up concerns he and his crew were able to figure it out so that overall the floor looks great. And the cost is absolutely reasonable. Would definitely recommend!

MV Flooring provided a quick estimate for my downstairs new flooring. Water resistant laminate was installed throughout. They also were able to start the job within 1 week. Floor looks great and we couldn’t be happier. Best part of our experience was the great price.... least costly that I could find for the job that needed done.

William and his team installed wood flooring in 2 bedrooms and hallway. They arrived on time, were courteous, and cleaned up afterwards. My floor looks great and I will be using their services again in the near future.

The BC crew did a great job replacing my old worn out hardwood floors with a beautiful new engineered hardwood plank in just two work days; one day to remove the old floor and make some repairs to the subfloor, and one day to install the new floor planks. By the end of the day they had put all the furniture back in place and cleaned up. Very happy with their work.

Nick came to my house to lay laminate. Nick put down the floors in my house and he did not make sure my floors were leveled. Nick told me that he was not responsible for leveling. This guy did not know what he doing!

Gary came out to provide me with an initial estimate at a very fair price and was able to schedule the install to complete within a week. Gary and his installer completed the job within a very reasonable amount of time and the floors look great. Gary was very polite and was willing to address any questions I had throughout the process. He took the time after the completed job to discuss some of the concerns and care related to floating floors. I would definitely recommend Gary Cooper for your flooring install needs.

Andriy did a nice job installing new hardwood floors in our house. He was accommodating to our timeline as we were working to get floors replaced prior to moving in. He was able to make this happen working nights and weekends. He even came back to finish the baseboards in a half bath I was remodeling.
