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 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.

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.

Issa did an excellent job with my carpet installation. I was out of town during the install and he did a great job communicating throughout the process and was very flexible scheduling a time to install with my real estate agent. He had quality carpets at the best price. Overall I would highly recommend and would use again if carpet installation is needed.

Our carpet installation experience with JCI Flooring was great. Suri was extremely responsive in communications; she came quickly to walk the space and give us a quote. Her installation team was punctual on installation day, and they worked really efficiently to get the carpet installed. Would definitely work with Suri and her team again.

I needed carpet replaced and installed for a small bedroom. Empire and Lowes quoted $500+. Victor and his team arrived the day after I contacted them, provided the carpet, installed it and cleaned up after themselves all for a third of that price.

We had Better Home Flooring do our carpet removal and install and couldn't be happier! We were able to purchase padding through them as well. They broke down the beds to remove them from the room to tear up the carpet, and when the carpet was up, they allowed us to thoroughly check the floorboards underneath (in case we needed to screw any down). Then they installed all the new padding and carpet. They were easy to work with, very professional and nice, and we believe they did all that for a great price! Highly recommend!

These guys deliver. Bobby went out of his way to find us the best quality carpet we have ever felt beneath our feet at a truly remarkable price. He and Mike did a quality job installing it too! It looks, smells, and feels incredible. We have already received a host of compliments on it, and it has been less than a week since it was installed. Great carpet, great people.

We had two carpet stair runners to be installed. We were supplying the carpet, vendor was providing labor and pad. Job was committed to a couple weeks ago, for work to be done yesterday (Sat, Nov 19), starting between 9-10am. We waited around all day and no installer showed up. Tried to call and text, no response. Finally reached someone mid-afternoon. They said they would come today (Sunday). Text this morning indicated the store where they buy the binding is not open Sundays so they will pick up the carpet today, (presumably to measure and do binding off site) but will have to install tomorrow. My husband and I work business hours, which is why I arranged for a weekend install. No reply back when I asked to confirm their arrival time today so that we didn't waste another day waiting around for them. Out of frustration and lack of confidence on follow through, we have now cancelled the job with them and are now left scrambling to find another installer to do the install before company arrives Wednesday for the holiday weekend. Seems unlikely we'll succeed with that. Ugh!

Bobby and his team are absolutely amazing. I contacted him last week and had the carpet installed within a few days. He’s responsive and punctual. I’d recommend Charity Floors to anyone needing a flooring company.

My family and I are moving to Illinois and selling our home. We got three bids for the carpet and Jose was the least expensive. But we hired him because he was the most professional and personable. He was incredibly flexible when the painting delayed the project. The carpet was beautiful and professionally installed. We love it... Wish we met Jose a long time ago! New owners will love it!

Very happy with the carpet stair runner install. The crew was pleasant, asked questions every step of the way before starting the work, and was efficient in completing the job. The stairs look beautiful now. Would recommend them and would use them again.

Joel was amazing!!! We contracted with him to install carpet in two bedrooms and our loft area. He provided guidance on selection and installation throughout the entire project. His workmanship is quality and the carpet feels wonderful. He even managed to make the transition strips feel seamless. Our only regret is that we wish we had found him sooner to also do ur hardwood flooring. Needless to say, we will be referring him to all our neighbors and for any other flooring needs in the future. We highly recommend him for any flooring project and know he will take care of you!!!

Did a great job. Came out and gave me a bunch of different options, and all price points. Picked what I wanted, and came out and installed. There was an issue with the delivery of carpet, but was not CZ fault. Was up front about it and helped get everything taken care of right away. Would recommend. Moe is a great guy.

Wilson's Flooring Pros did a phenomenal job on my home. They were super responsive and scheduled a consultation with me immediately. Victoria was very patient in showing me all of the carpet options. She explained everything I needed to know about color, quality, material, padding etc. Once I decided on my carpet, Wilson's supplied a very detailed, fair priced, itemized quote for the job. The Wilson's crew did a quick professional job on removing my old carpet, installing the new one, and cleaning up afterwards. I will be using them for all of my future flooring needs. (Fyi.. I am someone that always shops around and does research. I found this company to be the best value without compromising quality.)

Barry was supposed to be at my house at 7am to install carpet for 1 room. When he had not arrived by 7:30am I began calling him but he wouldn't pick up the phone. My husband even called him with no answer. It's now 8:30am and he still has not arrived or even called me back. Don't hire him!
