So impressed with service and quality! They came to our home to show samples the same day we called for a quote. The value and quality were superb. They showed us multiple options at different price points and never tried to upsell with silly tactics. They were efficient and responsive. In fact, it just so happened that they had an opening the very next day and we were able to get our carpet installed the very next business day from when we first inquired! The carpet turned out beautiful, it's soft, plush, and looks great in our space. Not only that, but we were followed up with multiple times to ensure our satisfaction and to thank us for our business. I will be using Big Bear Flooring in the future and will continue to recommend them to others. Thank you Ashley, Mario, and team!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best sealer to use on concrete?

Because unsealed concrete is porous, it readily absorbs liquids, leading to unsightly stains and freeze-and-thaw cycle damage. For this reason, it’s important to seal concrete that will see spills or outdoor weather.

The best option for garage floors and other high-traffic areas is epoxy, which forms a hard and extremely durable surface on top of concrete. Epoxy, acrylic, and polishes are often used on indoor floors, while acrylic-resin sealers and reactive penetrating sealers are used on outdoor surfaces to repel water and salt. Locate a concrete contractor in your area to help find the best solution.

What do paving contractors do?

Paving contractors can be hired to install a concrete or asphalt driveway at your home, office or property. They can also repave an asphalt or concrete driveway that has been damaged by time, weather or heavy loads. When you are looking for a driveway contractor, request quotes from at least three professionals who are in good standing and have great customer reviews. They should do a site visit and write you a bid, detailing the work involved, materials needed, approximate length of the project and estimated cost.

The site for your new driveway will determine costs and the work required for your contractor. First, the ground must be excavated to lay a clear path. This means removing any trees, bushes and stumps. Next, the driveway contractor will grade the area, making a level surface for the concrete or asphalt. To ensure proper drainage, driveway contractors should install a sub-base of compacted gravel (or similar) 4 inches-8 inches deep, depending on your soil type. Then the concrete or asphalt may be poured and smoothed over the top. Your driveway contractor should recommend an appropriate sealant for your climate and advise you on curing time. When hiring a paving contractor, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to redo a concrete driveway?

 Here are some examples of average costs:

  • The national average cost to hire a concrete specialist is $2,750, but that price can vary greatly depending on the work needed to repair and resurface your concrete driveway, the square footage of the project, current costs of concrete, and regional labor rates.
  • Driveway contractors average $2-$3 per square foot to smooth and resurface your asphalt driveway.
  • Resurfacing concrete driveways averages $3-$10 per square foot. Pricing can depend on repairs needed, project size and geographic location.
  • Nationally, the average cost for resurfacing a 500-square-foot driveway ranges from $2,000 to $5,000.
  • Sealant for a concrete drive can cost $20-$80 per gallon.
  • Sealant for an asphalt drive averages 25 cents per square foot.

What is the best finish for concrete floors?

The best finish for concrete floors depends on your personal taste. An acid stain is a bold, varied look with lots of texture and the potential for earthy tones and a natural stone appearance. A water-based stain might not last as long as an acid stain, but it gives you the choice of many different colors. Epoxy is great for high-traffic areas, kitchens, bathrooms, basements and garages. It provides a glossy, damage-resistant, non-slip coating on your concrete floors. To find out which finish is the best for your concrete floors, contact a concrete contractor near you.

What can concrete contractors do?

Concrete contractors can build foundations, structures, driveways, concrete storm drains, raise or level concrete patios and much more. They can handle every step of the process, starting with framing the mold that the concrete is poured into. They then cut, assemble and tie together the rebar, giving the concrete its tensile strength. Finally, they pour the concrete in, mixing and conditioning it to ensure it cures properly. They will also take steps to ensure that no air pockets are trapped within it.

Is it better to stain or paint concrete?

A concrete paint cover is typically opaque and covers up the color of the concrete. This means it provides significant protection to the concrete below. However, if it is improperly applied or subjected to heavy traffic, a painted concrete floor is likely to chip and peel. 

Epoxy and staining are two types of concrete floor sealer. Epoxy is a more durable but often more expensive option than a concrete stain. Epoxy forms a protective layer, while concrete stain is more decorative and requires more maintenance. Because epoxy can be more expensive than concrete stain, it is best used in high-traffic areas or in applications where low maintenance is desired.

A concrete stain, on the other hand, is quick to apply and can show off the textures of the concrete, but it does not provide a high degree of protection for the concrete against spills, salt, water and other contaminants. Staining concrete generally requires a dust mop, a pH-neutral cleaner and water to clean, while epoxy can cause resin buildup that necessitates the use of special detergents.

Find a concrete contractor near you for help selecting the right floor concrete sealer.

What are the different types of flooring I can install in my home?

Here are four popular types of flooring you can install in your home. 

Solid wood flooring:

Solid wood flooring is made up of 100% wood, and has a very natural look and feel. It can add value to your home and. It can resist wear and tear, and be sanded and refinished multiple times. However, solid wood is susceptible to humidity and water damage. When it’s humid, solid wood could expand and if there’s a flood, it will be hard for the wood to return to its natural shape.

Laminate flooring:

Laminate wood flooring is an artificial product that mimics real wood flooring. Its core consists of fiberboard material, topped by an image print layer and sealed with a clear protective film. Laminate flooring is UV-resistant and less expensive than solid hardwood (approximately $3 to $7 per square foot to install). However, it also has a lower-quality feel, is unable to be sanded and refinished, has a lifespan of around 25 years and will invariably have a repeated print, according to Consumer Reports

A laminate hardwood floor is popular in living areas like dining rooms and kitchens. Their quality has improved dramatically in recent years, making them an attractive alternative to more expensive flooring types. Laminate flooring can also be scratch-prone, easy to clean and maintain, and resistant to moisture. 

Vinyl flooring:

Vinyl flooring is made completely out of PVC plastic and is an excellent option for moisture-prone areas like bathrooms and kitchens. It is durable, comfortable and inexpensive. Vinyl plank flooring and vinyl floor tiles can also imitate stone, tile and wood. However, it is fairly easy to spot vinyl flooring as synthetic. Install luxury vinyl plank and sheet vinyl flooring in areas where moisture is a concern.

Engineered wood flooring:

Engineered wood flooring often has a plywood-core substrate and a genuine hardwood veneer as its uppermost layer. Engineered wood floors are more impervious to humidity than regular hardwood, meaning that it’s less likely to expand, warp and buckle, according to Consumer Reports. However, it can dent easily. The best engineered hardwood has a thicker veneer, as well as a quality that allows it to be sanded down and refinished to increase its lifespan. It can be as durable as solid hardwood, and it’s often an affordable choice for many homeowners.

If you need help choosing the best flooring for your home, reach out to the top flooring companies near you.

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 difference between masonry and concrete contractors?

Masonry contractors build structures with smaller units like bricks and stones, binding them together with mortar to form a larger structure. Concrete contractors, on the other hand, only use concrete to form structures. This mixture of cement, water and other materials is poured into a premade structure and left to cure, forming a single structure made on one part.

Call a concrete contractor near you to replace or repair concrete floors. You can also find concrete masonry contractors in your area to help you with other projects.

I had a great experience with Watson Concrete. Bruce was on time, provided a written bid within a day, was on time and in constant contact with me about this project. He did an incredible job and I plan on using him again for future projects and refer to my friends and family. Thumbtack is fortunate to have a contractor of this quality on its team. Bravo Watson Concrete--you earned this stellar review!

As a plumber who does underground work for remodels regularly its very important to have a reliable concrete contractor. Samson and Sons showed up the same day I called them. They showed up the next morning and got this job done. Very professional. Would use again

My husband and I are extremely pleased with the complex concrete project Dan completed for us (new backyard stamped concrete patio, new driveway and addressing difficult sloping/water drainage issues). Everything about the experience was fantastic- Dan met with us for over an hour to discuss the project in detail, suggesting design ideas and solutions to our water drainage issues. His quote was detailed and competitive, making us feel at ease from the start. He and his crew showed up on time the first day and carefully but quickly demoed our deck and existing concrete. On subsequent days, Dan showed up early and stayed until dark. He involved both my husband and/or I in the finalization of layout and technical plans. His team worked extremely hard and complete this large project in four days. We could not be happier with the result, our patio is beautiful and our driveway looks great. Our neighbor is a general contractor and was impressed with their work ethic and attention to detail. Overall, we would highly recommend Dan for any complex concrete project.

Kyle and Royal K Construction have been great to work with. His family has done concrete work for generations, so they really know their stuff. They poured our addition foundation and garage and we liked their work so much that we had them do our driveway and back patio(stamped) as well. Kyle and his team are always there bright and early and work very hard. Their prices are fair and they do quality work. They are easy to communicate with and were always patient in answering our many questions. In doing our home remodel they were the only contractor who were always there, on time, when they said they would be there. I would highly recommend Royal K Construction for their quality of work, professionalism, and communication.

In short, Bruce Watson is a amazing company to work with. They were responsive and came out for a quote right away. Their attention to detail was head and shoulders above the other contractors I had come quote the same job. The house is new to me so I knew nothing about the property. They took notice of how the sprinkler/drip system was laid out, rerouted it, and put conduit in place to make future maintenance a breeze. They made sure not to disturb the garden and even took the time to save as much mulch from the pad locations as they could. They also modified the rain gutter runoff with materials that matched my existing setup to avoid any pooling. The concrete work was top notch. They matched my existing driveway no problem an blended it right into the sidewalk and patio they poured. Their price isnt bargain basement but it also wasnt anywhere near the highest. I would say their price is extremely fair for the service that I received.

Dan is amazing. I have a long driveway with my garage about the same level of my sidewalk. Water was draining from my property - it would sit on the driveway and eventually get into my home. We were having serious problems for several years. I had several contractors give me quotes, and none of them could tell me that they would get the water to leave my property. I was advised to install giant french drains that would be costly and wouldn't take the water from my property. When Dan came to give me a quote, I knew he'd be able to drain the water. He was creative enough and had the technical skill and ability to get the water out to the sidewalk. It wasn't as simple as just grading the driveway away from the garage - he kept the water from my house and window wells, and directed it down the driveway to the sidewalk - he did it! For the first time since I've owned this home, the water actually drains away! He also installed a cinder-block wall that I am very pleased with. We wanted some removable poles for a net, and he had no problem with that either. He was very responsive to all of my concerns, and gave me great value. Dan has a great crew as well. They worked up to 12 hours a day and were always friendly, cheerful and happy - a great presence at our home where we had 3 small children stuck at home because of the pandemic. I was glad to have them there. Dan demolished and removed everything, installed a wall, a long driveway, and walk, within a matter of days, ahead of schedule! And it all looks fantastic! I recommend Dan to anyone with concrete needs - he's the only person I'll call if I need any concrete work in the future. Nick
