Your Flooring Companies questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to install flooring?

Flooring installation costs $6 to $10 per square foot, depending on the material. When choosing your new flooring, you must consider the cost of the materials and labor since some floors are more difficult and expensive to install than others. Some of the most common flooring materials include:

  • Laminate flooring costs $6 to $9 per square foot installed for flooring that resembles natural materials like wood planks, stone, and tile at a fraction of the cost.
  • Hardwood flooring costs $7 to $25 per square foot installed for solid or engineered hardwood planks.
  • Vinyl flooring costs $2 to $16 per square foot installed, depending on whether you install standard or luxury materials. Sheets are the cheapest option, while luxury vinyl planks and tiles are the most expensive.

What type of flooring is best?

The best flooring for you depends on your budget, lifestyle, and the specific needs of the room. Hardwood flooring is one of the most expensive materials but lasts for generations with proper care and greatly increases your home's value. Laminate and vinyl are easy and inexpensive but won't last as long as hardwood.

Tile flooring is ideal for wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens since it is water-resistant and durable. Another comfortable and affordable flooring is carpet, but it is harder to keep clean and will be replaced much sooner than other materials.

Do you tip flooring installers?

Tipping flooring installers is not customary, but it is a nice gesture if you are happy with the work they have done. The amount of the tip is up to you, but a standard tip is between $10 and $20 per day per installer. If the installers went above and beyond, such as working late or cleaning up more than expected, you could tip them more.

If you prefer not to give a cash tip, you can always offer to buy the crew lunch while they are working in your home. This not only shows your appreciation, but also keeps them from leaving for an extended lunch hour since you can bring the food to them.

Who installs flooring?

Flooring installers are professionals who install new flooring in homes and businesses. They can install a variety of flooring materials, including hardwood, tile, laminate, carpet, and vinyl. 

Depending on the material you choose, it's best to find an installer who has years of experience installing that material. While you will likely pay more for an experienced installer, your end results will be better. Saving a few dollars is not worth having an uneven or poorly installed floor for years. 

How do I choose a flooring installer?

Here are some tips to help you choose the best flooring installer for your project:

  • Compare at least 3 quotes with the same flooring materials and installation methods.
  • Pick from licensed contractors with 5 or more years of installation experience with your preferred flooring material.
  • Check out their installation reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Avoid selecting the lowest price estimate that may indicate poor quality materials or workmanship.
  • Get a written estimate, contract, and warranty before starting the project.
  • Never pay in full before the project starts, instead follow a negotiated payment plan.

What questions should I ask my flooring company?

When you are choosing a flooring company, be sure to ask these important questions:

  • What flooring materials do you recommend and why?
  • What installation method do you prefer?
  • How much do you charge to lay the wood or tile floor in a herringbone pattern?
  • What steps will you take to protect the rest of my home during installation?
  • Does your estimate include the removal and disposal of my old flooring?
  • How much do you charge to move and return my furniture?
  • What additional costs can I expect for the flooring project?
  • Do you offer a warranty and what does it include?
  • Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
  • Can you provide a list of references from your previous customers?
  • What financing plans do you offer?
