"TL;DR - Beautiful work quality, good value, but a little unprofessional Positives: Starting off, I'd like to say that Brian did a phenomenal job with the carpet installation. It included 3 large rooms each with closets and a hallway, and he did a beautiful job all by himself in 2.5 days. He arrived at our house exactly when he said he would each day and worked long hours to make sure he got the job done in our short time frame. His work quality is excellent and is a good value as well. While I couldn't say better things about the work, I do feel it is important to give a thorough and honest review including both positives and negatives. Some of the comments below aren't extreme "negatives" per se, just little things to mention for the purpose of other people reading reviews. To preface this, there was a little issue that occurred right at the beginning that is worth explaining: my father-in-law (who sells carpet for a living) delivered the carpet to us all already cut to size, and carried it up the stairs to place the pieces in the appropriate rooms. He was trying to be helpful and didn't know that Brian had plans to take up the pieces one by one as he installed them. Brian was unhappy about this because he said that the carpet rolls would be in his way since they were already all upstairs. This was understandable, obviously nobody wants someone interfering with their work. Not sure if this had an impact on the course of his work or not, but I just wanted to include it for completeness. Negatives: In my opinion as someone also in the customer service business, Brian was a little lacking in professionalism. During the installation we could hear him saying/yelling profanities and other exclamations of frustration as he was working. As adults, it wasn't really bothersome because we can understand how frustration and hard work sometimes gets the best of us, but this would have been very inappropriate in a household with children. The same occurred when he first saw that all of the carpet was already upstairs, to which he openly said "Pain in my ass." Yes, it was intrusive to his work, but this was not a professional response to the situation at all. Additionally, his clean-up wasn't very good; in moving the doors around to install the carpet he left several very obvious dirty hand prints that we had to go around and wipe off. He also left extra pieces of tack strip with the tacks facing up in a bathroom, and my husband ended up stepping on one (he left the tack strips on purpose because the bathroom has to be finished at a later date, but it would have been better if they were left somewhere more out of the way or if he would have warned us that they were on the floor). Other comments (neither negative or positive): For some reason Brian didn't have his work truck with him that day and wasn't able to take away the huge bags of trash at the end. He offered to come back and get them the next day though. Also, his response to messages while planning the job was pretty slow (maybe a day between texts). Not a huge deal to me though because people have lives. Last, he did leave some scratches and marks on our newly painted walls; I think this is to be expected during carpet installation though."

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 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 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 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.
