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.

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.

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. 

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.

Michael and the H&T team did a great job installing a new kitchen floor, and matching it to the existing hardwood floor installed in 1957. They were super efficient, detail oriented, and got the work done quickly and well. The craft and care they put into making the new floor fit with the existing floor was really great. Finally, they finished the work two days early which saved us time and money. Thanks H&T!

Bruce Williams Woodfloors was a complete joy to work with and my floors and I will keep coming back to Bruce in the future! I had some repairs that needed to be done on our hardwood floors that we could not afford to replace entirely with new flooring. Bruce explained my options with the repairs and came up with some ingenious ideas for repairing scratches and stains, etc. Bruce was a true professional who knew his way around wood floors and took pride in his work! My floors were quite happy with their makeover and I highly recommend Bruce Williams Woodfloors!

Carlos delivered as promised stripping our hardwood floors of a build up from using Bona Floor cleaner as a cleaning product for 11 years which caused them to be dangerously slippery. Everyone else told me I had to completely refinish the floors. They are no longer slippery and look like new.

Dennis did a fantastic job on our bedroom flooring. With a number of pets, we needed to have our carpet ripped out and flooring put in. Dennis was extremely responsive when it came to answering my correspondence, helping us choose flooring and scheduling time to install it. The installation was quick and clean -- not a spec left behind. When we're ready to replace the flooring in another room, which at some point we'll want to do, I won't hesitate to contact Dennis to take care of it!

Luis, Patrick and the crew from Luxor Floors are some of the most professional people I've worked with on any home improvement project. Our job was to replace ~1100 sq ft of hardwood floors, a staircase and install new baseboards due to a faucet failure and subsequent water damage. Luis showed up on time to take measurements and discuss options. Their proposal was the most itemized of all the bids we received, but not the most expensive. We appreciated this attention to detail, as there were no surprises as to what was included and what was not. Once we signed the contract to start work the Luxor crew were very quick in removing the existing floors, baseboards and stairs (on the same day). They also provided a dehumidifier to ensure we did not have a mold problem. They were the only contractors that were willing to do this. Once the existing floor was removed, we discovered the sub floor was very uneven. Rather than just floor over it, Luxor floors went to great lengths to ensure it was level before putting our new floor down. This attention to detail and customer satisfaction is what sets Luxor apart from other contractors - they want to do the job well and ensure that you are happy with the finished product. In addition to the kudos I've already given, I appreciated the following: - the work crew always left the site clean at the end of the day and followed our HOA rules without a problem - Patrick and Luis were always responsive to any questions we had about the materials or job in general - no corners were cut when it came to quality If you are looking for quotes for a flooring job be sure to include Luxor Floors in your selection, you won't be disappointed.

Matt came to do the initial consultation, quoted me a price and told me which flooring that would be best for me to purchase for my home. We picked the floors and ordered them ourselves. Also, Matt installed new baseboard as well. We are very happy with the outcome.

These guys were great and came right when I needed them after my normal hardwood floor guys had to cancel. They did a good job on the floors and their price was very reasonable. The only thing I wasn't happy about was that I had just freshly painted the entire apartment and saved the hardwood floors till last to add that final sparkle! But after the floor guys had finished, all along the baseboard, the new paint had been ruined by their machine. This may be something that is unavoidable and it may be my fault for doing things in the order that I did, but now I have to have my contractor come back and repaint the baseboards. :( But other than that, I was very satisfied. Thank you.

The hardwood floor was sanded and re-finished. The final product was mediocre. All the floor baseboards were scratched, my marble fireplace was cracked in the corner, and new paints on my walls were scratched. All of these can be avoided if Mongalo Designs (Carlos Mongalo) was to take a bit more caution in sanding the floor. Furthermore, the company didn't cover all my kitchen appliances, window blinds, and walls. So many dusts left from sanding the floor. I have to pay $150 for a cleaning crew to clean up the dust. Mongalo Designs did returned and re-painted all my baseboards and fixed the cracked fireplace. However, fixing is not the same as the original flawless condition of my baseboards and marble fireplace.
