Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to install carpet?

If you’re ready to bring new life into your house with a makeover from the ground up, you’re ready to learn more about carpet installation costs. Installation costs vary greatly, depending on a number of factors such as the type of carpet, the number of square yards, any necessary repair work, the number of stairs you have, and where you live. Due to these variables, the national average cost of carpet installation ranges between $200 and $4,500.

To start planning for your new carpet, measure roughly how many square yards of carpet you’ll need. Research the main carpet styles and materials you like to get a feel for what they cost. Nylon carpets are typically the least expensive, and wool is one of the higher-end carpets. Prices per square foot might range from under $2 to over $10, depending on materials. Count the number of stairs you want carpeted; each one might average between $3 and $10 (or more for box steps). Carpet removal can be an added cost as well, averaging $1-$4 per square yard, depending on the company and regional disposal costs. 

How much is the cheapest carpet?

If you’re looking to reduce carpet installation costs, there are several ways to save. Start by considering your carpeting needs. Manufactured materials such as polyester and nylon will be cheaper than natural fibers such as wool. From big box retailers, starting prices for olefin-based carpet are approximately 50 cents per square foot — making the cost under $5 per square yard. Indoor carpets made with olefin fibers are typically the least expensive on the market. Keep in mind that olefin fibers are not as soft on bare feet as other fibers, so are often used in areas like basements, playrooms or indoor patios. Nylon and polyester are good options to reduce carpet installation costs while still creating a cozy feel. The face weight, fiber construction and density of a carpet all affect the cost per square foot. The cheapest nylon or polyester carpets can start at just under $2 per square foot, making them about $18 per square yard. Lower-cost carpet tends to wear out more quickly and show stains more easily, so avoid light colors and vacuum regularly to keep the fibers clear of dirt that might age it too quickly.

How much does it cost to carpet a bedroom?

If you’re building a new home, remodeling, or ready for new carpet in your bedroom, you’ll want to know carpet installation costs. Here are the factors that affect the cost of your new bedroom carpet:

  • Installation cost per square yard: From under $2 to over $6. Carpet companies have a labor cost per square foot for installing your new carpet. Depending on where you live in the country, that rate can vary greatly. This rate does not include the cost of the carpet.
  • Type of carpet: from $1 per square foot to $20 or more per square foot. The fibers that make up your carpet will have a direct effect on cost. As an example, specialty wool carpets may start at about $10 per square foot, while a manufactured fiber like nylon may be about $2 per square foot.
  • Removal of old carpet: from $1 to $4 per square yard. Old carpet is labor-intensive to remove and also costs money to dispose of or recycle. The cost to remove carpet will depend on how much carpet you need removed and whether your installation pros offer a discounted rate for installing your new carpet at the same time.
  • Subfloor repair: from $40 to $70 per hour (plus materials cost). If the flooring underneath your old carpet is damaged, it must be repaired before the new carpet is installed. Many carpet pros can offer this service, or you can hire a handyman to handle the job.  
  • Type of carpet pad: $1 per square yard and up, depending on the thickness. The cost to install carpet pad is typically included with the labor cost per yard of installing the carpet itself.

How much does it cost to install carpet on stairs?

The number of stairs you want carpeted in your home will directly affect your carpet installation cost. Putting carpet on stairs generally increases the labor time and requires a higher degree of detail than laying carpet flat. Where you live in the country also plays a role in your carpet installation cost. Carpet installation companies in smaller towns with a lower cost of living and a lower cost to do business (insurance, company vehicles, employee labor, etc.) can usually offer their customers lower rates than companies in large cities where the cost of living and the cost to do business are higher. Carpet pros will often quote you a flat rate per stair once they do a site visit to provide an estimate. They’ll take into account the size of each stair you want carpeted (including both the step and the riser), and what type of stair it is. For example, the cost might range between $3 and $10 per stair for labor only. On the higher end of the spectrum, box stairs or staircase stairs with spindles that must be worked around might cost between $15 and $25 per stair.

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.

How can I find out if a flooring professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a flooring professional is considered an essential service in the current coronavirus pandemic, consult your city or state’s government website. To get a sense of the national recommendations, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage

This page lists 16 different infrastructure sectors that are officially considered essential during this time. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. Ultimately, you should consult with your local government. 

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a flooring professional when social distancing?

If you hire a flooring professional for an outdoor project, you may be able to avoid person-to-person contact with the pro. If you hire a pro for an indoor job, avoid physical contact, sanitize surfaces and use virtual payments like PayPal, Venmo, Google Pay and Square Cash App to complete transactions instead of using cash or checks. Determine a strategy with the flooring professional when you contact them.

Cristian was professional and did an amazing job on our barber shop floors. He recommended the best flooring option for us and picked up the product we ordered from Floor and Decor. He provided the best estimate and did warn there could be leveling issues that needed to be addressed when he came out and looked at the floor. We would work with Cristian again.

Overall great experience with Atomic Flooring from start to finish. Speedy response to get my consultation setup. Jon the sales rep was fantastic and really worked hard to get me the product that was right for my family and I. The installers showed up on time and knocked out the project in just 2 days. They did a fantastic job installing the flooring over the existing tile. Every looked great and they cleaned up after themselves when the job was completed. Highly recommend Atomic Flooring!

Atomic Flooring really came through for me in a pinch and did a nice job! I only had a few days before moving in when my prior arrangements for floor installation fell through. The same day I inquired, John came out with extra large samples and I signed the deal. 5 days later they got to work. 3 contractors came out and finished in only 4 hours! I was AMAZED!!! They initially quoted 3 days to get it done. The only downside is that the moldings were installed but not painted. I didn't know what primed only meant until I've started to see some bruising, warping and marks on the wood. So lesson learned and we painted it ourselves and have a perfect match to the wall now too. Wish paint would have been offered because I would have spent extra to make the job 100% complete. Overall, I'm happy and the floors perfectly match the tile -- which was very hard to do. The floors are totally quiet with zero cracking or creaking when stepping. Looking forward to enjoying these floors for years to come!

I reached out to Jackson Builders because of an issue with my floor. They responded quickly, we're very friendly and gave really helpful advice. They helped me understand the issue and actually directed my to try something else before hiring them. I really appreciate that kind of honesty and I'll call them first if I end up needing to replace the floor.

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Cristian and his work in our home. The room that he replaced the floor in looks AWESOME, and he worked quickly, efficiently, and with a lot of professionalism. He was very gracious in working around my timeline, and he even took his lunch break to coincide with my son’s nap so my son could sleep. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a contractor for their flooring!

So happy we had them install vinyl planking in our house instead of home depot installation. They did an amazing job for an amazing price too. Will have them back out for bathroom floors when we're ready.

Marco Marco as the consummate professional. He was punctual -and walked through everything he was doing for his quote . He demoed the floor, laid luxury vinyl, painted entire inside of home (Walls, baseboards, doors, trim, ceiling) and drywall. The value was exceptions also. I would 110% recommend Marco for any job.

Typical Bait and SWITCH, at $2.50 a square foot and then comes and increases it to $4.55 a square foot, just because he has to remove BASEBOARDS? Came to the house to give me a bid, but kept arguing with me that since he is licensed contractor, he KNOWS that I have laminate flooring. I told him that I have the boxes and it is NOT laminate it is ENGINEERED WOOD. Which is really strange for a contractor to argue with the owner WHO KNOWS what kind of FLOOR is in his house. EXTREMELY argumentative person, doesn't want to listen to reason. Raises his voice considerably if you remind him that he quoted a different WRITTEN DOWN. His quote was clear which said "$2.50 including GLUE". Now suddenly he wants $4.55 and DOESN'T want to work with Manufacturer Glue. Stay away OR if you use him, WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING and MAKE HIM SIGN IT. He says one thing, and then changes. FACT: I told him that we need sound barrier, and we can ONLY USE GLUE that is approved by my HOA. I told him that I live on 7th Floor, it is quite evident from my address.

Adam and his crew were just what I needed. Contacted him on Thumbtack Friday night and the crew was at my home first thing Monday morning to start installing my flooring. He was in constant communication with me, working with me on every detail to make sure the job was done right. Not only was the work done quickly, but it’s done beautifully. I’m super happy with every aspect of working with Adam and his team at Atomic!

Atomic did an amazing job at installing new flooring in my home. I really loved how they itemize their quotes. It allows you to pick and choose which services you want. I ended up saving a lot of money by doing little things like painting my own baseboards because of this. Their customer service is also amazing. They bent over backwards to accommodate our work schedules. Whenever I had a question I would just call and get an immediate answer. Through the process Adam the owner called to make sure everything was going well which I also appreciated. I would without a doubt hire them again!
