I cannot say enough about Ezequiel. I started to put these engineered wood floors in myself and realized I was making a mess with the glue. Ezequiel was very responsive and patient as we worked through some supplies issues. Thought I had transition tile, but did not and we had to modify plans. While he went to Home Depot to try to find some, I found some back splash tile in my garage. He was very patient in working through options. And then, when he got started on gluing the wood down, he was very efficient. Finally, the doors were too long to shut and we had to take them off and trim (three times). Turned out great. The transition is my favorite part. This man is a pro and will do you right. Thank you Ezequiel. You will be my first call going forward.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 long does it take to install a hardwood floor and a concrete floor?

The time it takes to install hardwood and concrete floors varies based on the condition of your current floors, the size of your floors and other factors. Use the following information to gauge how long your flooring installation might take.

Time it takes to install a hardwood floor: Several days to 2+ weeks

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. Subfloor repair 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. 

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, staining takes a full day to dry, and multiple coats are applied. 

For a more accurate timeframe of how long it will take to install hardwood floors in your home, reach out to one of the best flooring companies near you.

Time it takes to install a concrete floor: 2 days to 1 week

Installing concrete floors can take anywhere from two days to a week, depending on what you need done. Some of the factors that can impact how long it will take to install concrete floors are: 

  • The size of the space
  • The stain or finish
  • The condition of your existing floor
  • Whether you want intricate, simple or no designs 
  • The overall complexity of the project

To get an accurate estimate of how long installing concrete floors will take for your home, speak to a concrete contractor near you. 

Should I remove baseboards when installing hardwood floors?

You can install hardwood floors without removing baseboards, but it’s recommended that you remove them to fix baseboards that aren’t properly aligned, cover the expansion gap, adjust the boards’ height and ensure the baseboards match the new flooring. When talking to contractors, ask if they recommend removing your baseboard before they install your hardwood floors.

What is the best hardwood floor?

The best hardwood floors are made from durable, hard species like oak, maple and cherry. Solid hardwood is typically the better choice over engineered wood because you can sand out the scratches multiple times. However, engineered hardwood is better equipped for humid households. 

Consider buying prefinished hardwood flooring, which can be more durable and simplify the installation process. Plus, prefinished wood often comes with a warranty from the factory.

Bamboo is another popular option, though be aware that some might not be as eco-friendly as others due to its production process. Some of the popular hardwood floor brands are Bruce, Carlisle and Lumber Liquidators.

To ensure you choose the best type of wood flooring for your home, hire one of the top hardwood floor installation professionals near you.

How thick is hardwood flooring?

Hardwood flooring generally comes in several thicknesses, with thicker, high-quality boards typically being more expensive and more durable. The thinnest is 5/16 inch thick. The next thickness is 3/8 inch thick, and the thickest solid hardwood flooring is generally 3/4 inch thick or 1/2 inch thick. The cost for each thickness varies by the brand, retailer and type of wood. Generally, you might see prices ranging as low as  $2.50 to $6 per square foot.

Do engineered wood floors scratch easily?

Yes, but engineered wood flooring has the same susceptibility to scratching as hardwood flooring. Engineering wood floors have a layer of real wood on top. For this reason, engineered hardwood reacts the same way that regular hardwood does to scratching. If you don’t mind a few character marks on your floor like small scratches and dents, this is not a problem. However, engineered wood can be sanded down and resealed if the damage gets too great.

Find a hardwood floor professional in your area who can tell you more about the pros and cons of engineered wood floors.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a flooring professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To safely set up a consultation or appointment with a flooring professional and avoid the risk of transmitting COVID-19, start with an online search. Contact the professional through a message and ask to set up a video or phone call to discuss the project. This lets the professional visualize what needs to be done without physically needing to be there. Discuss the project’s timeline, budget, virtual payment capabilities and adherence to guidelines set forth locally and by the CDC.

Can I use digital payments to pay for floor installation, replacement or repairs?

Many local flooring professionals offer digital payments to conduct transactions for floor repairs, installation, replacement and more. This trend has been increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is prompting flooring professionals to take payments through Venmo, Square Cash, PayPal, Google Pay, Zelle and other convenient platforms. 

To ensure you can safely pay for the service, contact the professional beforehand and ask which services are acceptable. Take any measures necessary to comply with guidelines on social distancing.

Do flooring professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Because flooring work has to be done in-person, flooring professionals are typically unable to perform work virtually. If you come across a pro's profile that states they're offering remote services, message the pro to see what those services include.

If you plan to get indoor flooring installed once the pandemic is over, you can ask potential flooring specialists if they host virtual consultations through video calls and digital messaging. Compare flooring professionals in your area online to find the right fit, and book an appointment.

Does a flooring professional need to enter my home?

If the flooring project is located inside your residence, performing the job would require the flooring professional to enter your home. This is not recommended by the CDC during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, if a flooring project takes place in a separate location outside of your home, the flooring professional will not need to enter your home. 

Talk to flooring professionals in your area to see if it’s necessary for them to enter your home. If so, you might want to postpone the project until social distancing guidelines are relaxed by the government.

I have met with someone from Floor Coverings International Cypress last Friday to review the area where damaged hardwood needs to be removed and replaced. I agreed to the price for the job, but it has not been scheduled yet.

Fantastic Experience! Could not be happier with the job Bob performed. My floors look brand new. I would hire Bob again in a second and might later on when we potentially add hardwood floors in another section of our house!

Josue did a really great job and his team was very professional. I’m a little disappointed in the quality of hardwood I chose cause they’re not at scratch-resistant, but that’s no fault of this crew. This was a job well-done on their part and a pretty good price for the quality of workmanship

Carlos did a great job. Turns out my hardwood floor was glued down very well. He took great care in just pulling up what I needed and blended it real well with the existing floor. Definitely recommend for any home remodeling, renovation or repair work.

Josue did the most amazing job refinishing my hardwood floors. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and honest. I couldn't have asked for a better contractor. He was extremely kind to me and my children and I would trust him to be alone in my house. Thank you again Josue! I'll be using him again in the future.

I had a removal of carpet needed and to replace flooring. Marvin had the best estimate with more to offer. As soon as Marvin and his crew arrived they did as promised, excellent workmanship especially very pleased with the quality of material used for my home. They will be heading back to replace flooring in my rooms as I was so amazed with the work ! Thank you Marvin Hardwood Floors

American flooring far exceeded my expectations. I decided to rip out carpet up in one room to see if we had hardwood. To my surprise we did. The floor was in bad shape so I wasn’t so sure it could be refinished. American flooring did a better job then I could have imagined. Take a look at the before and after.

Robert's Flooring is amazing. We could not have asked for better quality and professionalism. Robert is attentive and really takes his service to the next level. We got our stairs and downstairs bedroom done with hardwood, and he even matched the type of wood and stain. Definitely will have him back out when we do our other two rooms. Thank you Robert!!

Willie and his helper did a great job on my new floor. I put down engineered hardwood and gave him a 4 day deadline to finish the project which he met with time to spare. They showed up early every morning and worked through most of the day. We had a couple small issues with the trim which he addressed, but overall it looks great.

I am very happy with the work Josue and his team completed. He removed old hardwoods that were glued down, scrapped the floors clean and added leveling concrete where needed. They showed up early the next day to start the job. They installed over 800 sq ft of laminate and did an incredible job. Floors look amazing! I would absolutely recommend JC Wood Floors to anyone looking to have a new floor installed.

Thomas was the first to respond to my quote, coming by on a Friday evening on his way home from another job. The work was delivered as promised. No surprises with the quote. I was kept in the loop as I gathered materials for the job. He and his team were polite, punctual, efficient, and cost effective. I got all of the common areas in my home painted plus engineered hardwood in 2 rooms and a hallway. They finished in 2 days flat. I would work with them again.

This was a great experience all around!!! We had previously hired a contractor to replace carpet with hardwood in our dining room, master bathroom and on our stairs. The previous contractor did the dining room, got paid for that room and never showed back up to finish the last strip of wood and to put down the floor moulding strips in the dining room. I reached out to several contractors on Thumbtack that came by within hours of me reaching out on a holiday weekend. I decided to contract with M&R Remodeling and they promised to complete the remaining work in the dining room, the master bedroom, and the stairs to our liking. We wanted the white riser facing on each stair but with the matching Earthwerks hardwood on the top of each step. They started the work on Memorial Day and completed the master bedroom that day. As promised they returned the next 2 days and finished the job as promised! The workmanship, professionalism, timeliness, and communication was great!!! We provided the materials they requested and they took care of the rest in only 2 1/2 days! I highly recommend this company for your in home needs! Again Highly recommended!!

We ripped out our fireplace so we hired DJ to continue our glued down, interlocking hardwood floors. DJ came in and simply got the job done. He showed up early, got the job done in less than a day and at a very reasonable price. He even came back to check it out a couple of days later to make sure it was perfect. I am recommending him to my parents who needs a similar job done. Thanks DJ!

Delighted with a job very well done by Will Chavez and his team - just finished 2 days ago. We had about 1500sq feet hardwood sanded, stained and varnished in 5 days, and all looks and feels like a completely new oak floor. The dust was minimal and surrounding areas well protected by WC. There was 2 days delay to the start, but we got around that with excellent communication at that time and throughout the job. We thoroughly recommend WC to others. Regards, Dave Munro (Houston)

The job was to install two different hardwood floors and repair another. Bob was very professional, a stickler for time (which I greatly appreciated), a man of his word (which is quite rare nowadays) and great at his work. He went with me to Lowe's and helped me pick the right material for the floors. He picked it up next day and transported it to my house in his own truck. I was so happy with his work that I got some more work done including replacing the bedroom door and installing three other doors, both internal and external. Bob is very friendly and personable.
