Cesar did a great job -- prompt, courteous, efficient, and professional. The project of mounting our flat-screen TV on the wall turned out to be a little more complicated than he had anticipated when the wall was wood paneling and not drywall, but he had the right tools with him. My HDMI connector cables also proved to be too short for the new set-up, but Cesar had longer ones with him, for a modest additional charge. Highly recommended!

We had a long list of things to be done before listing our home for sale. Jenrii with Ordonez Home Improvement did an excellent job tackling every project. Jenrii enclosed the landing where we had removed a handicap ramp - this was not an easy repair and required good carpentry skills. He also installed new closet wood bi-fold doors in a basement bedroom. Again, not an easy task as they had to be “fitted” to the closet. His troubleshooting skills were evident here. He replaced two old light switches, four electric outlets, and a bathroom vanity light fixture. These were only a few of the things he did. Jenrii is very professional, polite, thorough, and responsive. He texted us each morning on the days he worked to let us know what time to expect him. He works quickly and does excellent work for extremely reasonable rates. I would not HESITATE to recommend him for small jobs to larger remodeling projects. I was a commercial real estate project manager for 15 yrs, building shopping centers and office buildings - so I can definitively say that Jenrri knows what he is doing and does it very, very well.

Patrick did a great job on my initial service request which was for the installation of a new storm door. He did a great job installing it even though the foundation wood was not in the best shape. He also installed a new outdoor light fixture while he was here and identified other areas where I might be able to utilize his services in the future. I will be calling him back.

We absolutely loved working with José and his team to tile our basement floor with ceramic wood-looking tile, expose a brick wall, and install new toilet and a wall-mounted sink. He works FAST and within budget. Extra things we needed done were added at very reasonable extra expense ($40-60 to repair an unexpected drywall hole behind a mirror). His team does beautiful work, and José made sure every bit of trash or demo material was taken away. They also went above and beyond to make things look nice. For example, I don't think they charged me extra when they plastered around our baseboards and it looks soooo much better! They also patched a little hole left by a past electrician's job. They took extra good care of our space as if it was their own home. We also like that he respected our desire to further finish our space ourselves ( we are ok with doing our own painting). I can't say enough good things. We will definitely hire José and Brandon Contracting for our next job.

I hired Antonio, of Renaissance Restoration, to do several projects. They included: 1) rebuilding the curb in my shower that was installed improperly by a different contractor; 2) Finishing a half-bath remodel that included refinishing and painting the drywall after they had be damaged from wallpaper removal, installing a vanity including plumbing and trim; 3) Repairing water-damaged hardwood floors and refinishing hardwood floors in the kitchen, dining room, bathroom, hall and stairway; 4) Expanding the kitchen entrance by 2 inches, repairing and refinishing the drywall and wood floor. I was at first skeptical to hire one person to complete all these tasks due to the variety of skills required. Fortunately, Antonio had all the skills necessary to complete the job expertly and timely. His attention to detail and vast experience with carpentry and contracting work in general proved to be invaluable. The end result of each project was even better than I had expected. Needless to say I would hire Antonio again for my next project.

Hugo wasn’t able to show up but his guys did a good job. Hugo is so busy and wasn’t able to get the entire project completed the same day as requested. But he wanted to take his time and ensure the quality was there which is appreciated. I love my new Brazilian Taek solid wood floors. He gave a good measurement, didn’t try to overcharge, picked up half the wood (I’m still waiting on to have the stairs and 2nd leavel done), and recommend every good wood at a good location as far as quality & price. I would definitely recommend him again. There are a few tiny pieces unfinished but will get done on the next trip.

I hired Herbert and his assistant to help me convert my van into a camper. The first project involved putting in a wood floor (over insulation) and building a bed frame. I could not be any more delighted with the result! Herbert was extremely flexible in scheduling around my weekends. After weather washed us out X2, he gave up a Sunday to help me with my van. Herbert kept in contact with me via text and email as we sorted out the final details. He picked up the needed supplies, arrived promptly, and did a fantastic job with the floor and bed. This was not an easy task as a van floor/walls have many challenges to work with. The completed project is even better than I hoped for! Working with Herbert was a delight. He is professional, friendly, flexible and very kind. I look forward to hiring Herbert for several other van projects and projects for my condo.

The job involved adding new wood to a 60 year old floor where walls had been removed and then sanding and refinishing the new wood and the old to create a seamless appearance. In addition, there were deep "pet" stains in two areas. The finished job was amazing. An untrained eye would never have distinguished between old and new and the stains were completely gone. Other floor contractors had told us that the stains would not go away completely. As for Crafted Hardwood Floors, LLC , they were a pleasure to deal with from the beginning. The estimator arrived on time as did the install crew. Their price was very fair and much better than 2 other. They replaced a contractor who was hired but then had not shown up after promising to appear on 3 different occasions. The no show threatened the move in date but we were fortunate to find Crafted Hardwood Floors. One of the best companies we have ever dealt with. /. Jay & Laura Schwartz

Paul Langway and his team completed four jobs for us in three days- installing laminate kitchen tile, putting up a new shed door, removing and replacing rotting wood around a large window, and installing a ceiling light fixture. They were a very efficient team and paid close attention to detail, putting in long hours one day to finish the shed, even while it was dark out. The shed door especially looks amazing- better than the original, which was rotting at the bottom. Paul's flooring specialist is great. They took care of purchasing all of the materials and we refunded them at the end of the project. We felt completely comfortable having him and his team in and out of our home over the course of three days, and will be contacting him in the future for other projects.

Jorge came on a Friday to give us an estimate and work started on the following Wednesday and was done on Friday. After a nice power wash and stain our deck looks brand new. The wood boards feels like composite but without the expense. Jorge even replaced some rotted wood trim and rotted wood from underneath our bump out kitchen. After repainting our trim, our house looks great now.

We needed a basic door to cover the entrance to our basement crawl space. Stephen arrived early and was very through. He used spray foam insulation around cracks, reused the wood we had, added hinges and a small latch. He cleaned up after he was finished and his price was exactly as quoted.

Nery did a great job power washing and staining my deck. He repaired holes in my drywall and it looked completely brand new, like nothing ever happened. He also repaired my gutter and some wood siding that had been damaged on the side of my house. I will definitely be contacting him again if we need more work done!

I contracted Unlimited Resources, Inc. for a designer paint job and the installation of exotic hardwood floors throughout my living room and family room and ceramic flooring in the kitchen. I was hesitant about the paint combination because I was stepping outside of my box but Mr. Litman advised me through the purchases and I was thoroughly pleased with the end result. I picked out a very expensive exotic wood which would have to be ordered and would take weeks to arrive and I was working within a tight timeline to have the work completed. Mr. Litman was able to locate the wood in the metropolitan area and completed the project in an expeditious manner. My neighbors and family have asked to see the finished work and I've received rave reviews! I wouldn't hesitate to use Unlimited Resources, Inc. for future home improvement endeavors.

Ford and his staff did an excellent job. Ford responded to my inquiry immediately. He came out and gave us an estimate. His prices were reasonable for the work we had completed. I had hardwood installed in my family room, kitchen, stairs and upstairs hallway. He matched the wood to the wood that was in my foyer and other rooms. He was on time, very professional completed the job in two days. Very neat, cleaned up behind his work. Will use him again without hesitation.

Stuart Richardson from Scottie Contracting has done a lot of work for us over the past 10 years or so, to include the total remodeling of two masters bathrooms (different houses); installation of a couple of tile floors; installation of a wood floor; repair of a broken water pipe; repair of damaged drywall; electrical wiring; installation of a water heater; deck repair; and a lot of painting. He has always been very cooperative and professional, and has always been reasonably priced. My Wife and I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone needing any type of home repair or construction.

We wanted rustic looking sliding barn doors for our office. John was great, he came out and gave us wood samples and his recommendations. There was one hiccup in the project, bugs might have gotten in to the wood we had originally chosen, but John was helpful in having us choose a different wood that would give us the same look. Thanks!

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.

Who is a carpenter and what do they do?

Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who build things out of wood. Depending on what the carpenter builds, they may be referred to by various names. A framer is a carpenter who puts up the framing on a house. A trim or finish carpenter installs the finishing touches of prefabricated or custom trim and detail work once a house has been built and the walls are up. A furniture maker or woodworker builds furniture — such as tables, beds and dressers — out of wood. A cabinetmaker is a carpenter who builds custom and semi-custom wood cabinets. If you’re having a home built or remodeled, your general contractor will either provide or subcontract the carpentry work for the framing, cabinets and trim. You can hire a carpenter directly to update the trim in your home, build you a piece of custom furniture, or repair or replace your wood cabinets.

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.

Do carpenters build houses?

Carpenters are trained to work with wood. That means that any part of your home that is built of wood is very likely to involve a carpenter. Framing carpenters will put up the wood that makes up the bones of your home. If you’re having a wood floor installed, it may be done by a carpenter — although being a carpenter is not a requirement to install flooring. Trim, baseboards, wainscoting and any other detail work is typically installed by a finish carpenter. The wood boxes of custom cabinets will be built and installed by a carpenter.

Although all of these components in your new or remodeled home are built by carpenters who specialize in building things with wood, a general contractor typically oversees construction of the entire house. If the general contractor is also a carpenter skilled in all these areas, they may well construct your entire home. More often, the general contractor subcontracts out the various building stages to different individuals, including carpenters.

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.
