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.

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.

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. 

Reviews for North Hollywood flooring installation and repair professionals

We had Joey install engineered flooring in three bedrooms. Two were on a plywood subfloor with tile while the third was on an old, rough concrete slab with concrete steps leading into the home. He handled all of the demo, including the steps, built a new stepdown and installed the wood flooring to beautiful effect. He was able to start on the entire job on short notice and completed it in under two weeks. During the entire process he was communicative and extremely professional. It was a pleasure working with him and I would hire him again for future flooring needs!

I found JL flooring on thumb tack. joe came and met my husband and I and we really liked him a lot. He showed so much professionalism. We were looking to refinish our existing hardwoods. Joe explained that our old floors were dead and there was nothing left to refinish. (I had met with another floor contractor and he had said the same thing). the only answer to our floors was to install new ones and Hoe assured us he would do fantastic job. Talked about stain we wanted, wide plank bleeds throughout, and putting 1 wide Plank on the stairs. He also showed we a sample. he assured us we would have everything we wanted ! When the job started we were shocked as he showed up with the wood flooring to be installed. It was all different prestained colors. I was so upset as floors were espresso, white wash, grey and medium brown tones! It was horrible and knowing nothing about floors we were super upset that he failed to mention this small detail. He had his crew sand down the floors to the bare original oak. A step that I was not aware we would need (I assumed some sanding but not a total refinish of random colored boards) . Staining was also an issue as the colors he offered were not what I had discussed and showed joe pictures of when we met. He then said to customize colors I would need to wait until he returned from being out of town. It was 5 days and our project had been delayed due to needing to level the floor. I know what to expect from contractors and I know they can’t always do everything but he said all the right things to get the job and then made excuses. When it came time to do the 2 stairs (picture 2) He knew I wanted them to be 1 single wide plank. He tried to tell me the steps were too wide for this. When originally when he made the sales call it was not an issue. I caved and allowed him to move forward without the wide plank on the stairs. Then it was time to seal the floors. I specify said matte finish. Not shiny. Matte. And well our floors are shiny. He told me they are not shiny so not sure if our eyes work the same way... After all of this he made me feel like I was difficult for just trying to get what he said he could provide. I ended up with medium brown floors that are shiny. Our friends think the floors look great! But so much grief and unnecessary stress.

Need someone to resurface your floors? Look no further. I looked around and got quotes to resurface my oak-wood floors. I knew my floor boards were thin and some were even cracking. I do not have the money to replace my floors and I am on a real tight budget. I just wanted someone to make my floors look good until I win the lottery. Floorchain Inc quoted me half what a well known company quoted me. They even threw in extras like replacing any broken floorboards and patching up any gaps for no extra charge as part of the deal. So I went with Floorchain Inc after talking with Armen. Armen is pretty upfront on what the job would be like and the time table. I placed a deposit but I couldn’t figure out a date for another week. When I finally came up with dates that worked for me, he patiently accommodated me and my schedule. He was always quick to respond to any text and calls about any questions I had. I had a lot of questions about ones concerning moving all my stuff out. When the day finally came, Armen’s dad, who does most of the work, was there to greet me on the scheduled time. Very friendly guy and he right away went to work. To do my whole house took about 4 days. I came home to floors that looked like new. His dad did a great job. Now there was a touch up I wanted done and Armen quickly came back to finish it. He said that moving my furniture and stuff back in that I would be bound to scratch my floors. He offered to take care of any touch ups that needed to be done for free. Sweet! I don’t think anyone can beat them when it comes to price and workmanship. Those extras are like topping on a cake. Who else can do all that and be licensed? NO ONE!!!

Can’t say enough good things about how happy I am with the work this team did on my wood floor installation. Trust worthy, honest and competent. You can’t ask for a friendlier project manager than Marco. Two thumbs up from a very happy customer. Thanks for everything! Until we work on the next project that is 👍🏾
