  • 44 years in business
  • 55 hires on Thumbtack
"So, I was forced to look elsewhere for a contractor. Since I faithfully use Thumbtack, I had other inquiries about the job I needed done and Ray was one of those inquiries. I emailed/texted him and told him the job I needed done and even sent him some pics. An appointment was made for him to come by my house to look at what I needed done ( repairs to drywall of my garage ceiling). Ray was EARLY to the appointment (which was nice because I am a stickler for being on time, if not early). I laughed and mentioned that he was early and told him about the previous contractor that didn't show. He stated that he does not like wasting another person's time, which happens to be a mantra that I live by. So, we are already off to a good start. Ray gave me a little bit about his background and his work history, which is always nice so that one can get an idea about the person they are hiring. Ray surveys the ceiling and explains what will need to be done in order to complete the repairs. We agreed on a price, which I have to say was a bit more than I wanted to pay BUT he offers a 1 year guarantee on all his work and since I have been using Thumbtack for quite some time now, I have never run across anyone offering a 1 year guarantee on their work. So, we make plans for him to come out to do the repairs after I put down a deposit. He gives me a receipt for the deposit which states how much the remaining balance will be after completion. Ray showed up ON TIME to start the repairs. I wasn't feeling well, so I just left him to his work while I went back to bed. The first day he was at my place maybe 5 hours. He had to return the next day to finish the job, which was fine. Once again, I left him to his work and he was finished in about 6 hours. I was very impressed with the care and time that he spent to make sure the job was done right. I am thrilled that my garage ceiling has no holes in it. Ray did mention that he also does plumbing and electrical work as well. So, I might take him up on his offer. Even though he is a Patriots' fan ( he's from Boston..BOO PATRIOTS!!!!!!) I still would hire him"

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.
