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.

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.

Cesar and his crew did an outstanding job. I got my laminate floors replaced by LVP floors. Cesar was responsive, he gave me a reasonable quote, and was able to show me plenty of samples and spend time with me to ensure I was comfortable with the job and my floor selection. He and his team were on time, knowledgeable, professional and provided great value. I would recommend his work for anyone looking to replace their floors. 5 stars.

We had our floors refinished and we were blown away by the results. Jonas was very responsive to messages and his crew arrived on time and got straight to work. I really appreciated the attention to detail especially when installing the new shoe molding. Our floors look beautiful and I would definitely recommend JC Top Flooring.

I recently refinished my hardwood floors and stairs. I used Trinity One flooring and wow! they did an excellent job. The floors look fabulous. Their quote was reasonable and quality of work was outstanding. Through out the process Kennedy explained the process and kept me informed so there were no surprises. Her crew was always punctual, worked diligently and absolutely wonderful. I am so glad I went with her. If I could give her 10 stars, I would.

Orlando came over last minute to wrap up a flooring install that had lingered due to a botched install by a friend. He was professional, prompt, and honest. His guys worked nonstop and knocked out the job quickly and on budget. Look no further if you need some floors installed.

Got an excellent quote for my LVT install. Then on the day of the install, showed up on time, and got the job done by the end of the day. The work was stellar. Loved the service, and still continue to enjoy the floor - with no problems, after nearly 8 months after the work was done. A+ pro.

Subcontracts to other workers. Quality of job depends who he subcontracts to do the job. Excellent job with my floor, not so great with garage ceiling. Job done by different sub contractors. Charges extra fee later to move furniture back in place. Overall good job

We had several carpet challenges. We had a squeaky floor, a ridge in our subfloor, and a need for carpet restretching. Carlos took on all of the challenges and did everything he could to fix them. He was open to trying different ideas until we were satisfied with the results. He was reliable, prompt, and did a great job!

Let me tell you! Ralph and his crew are heaven sent! I needed flooring for my new commercial business space. The old tenants had awful carpet tiles on the entire space, almost 1150 square feet. No contractor wanted to do the removal for whatever reason so I came on here and found Ralph. I had started to remove the carpet tiles myself so when Ralph came in to measure and give me a quote he said “ don’t touch anything else. That’s so much work. I’ll removal them” and he did the removal free of charge. He is such a blessing. They finished my space in a day and a half and I cried with happiness when I saw the work! I am referring Ralph and his crew to everyone I know. And the quote was only a third of the quotes I had been receiving for installation. He even went to go pick up the flooring I had purchased for me! Ralph is the best and I will definitely hire him again!!

James was very quick to respond to the thumb tack post I had for the job. He met me ontime at the property and have a very good and accurate estimate. He included free carpet removal in preparation for the flooring. The team was outstanding getting the nearly 3000sq ft laid, sanded and finished in 5 days. The sanded and refinished a room that had previous hardwoods as well. 1/4 round mouldings were also installed. Very professional work and great project management. I will definitely refer to anyone.

We were looking to replacing our old carpet throughout the house. Took quotes from multiple companies but JCI Flooring was the most reasonable so we went with them. There was absolutely no compromise on the workmanship or quality of the job performed. They completed the task within a day while others had predicted it would take longer. We are absolutely pleased and in love with our new installation. We even purchased the pad and carpet from them since they were offering a very low price in comparison to others with similar specifications. I will recommend them to anyone looking forward to having their carpet replaced.

The same day Alex came out to provide a quote he was able to complete the work. I was not expecting such a fast turnaround, but was happy that I could get it done quickly. If I continued to shop around, maybe I could’ve found someone cheaper, but I appreciated the responsiveness this company provided and the quick turnaround. Alex was on time and courteous. He was respectful of my home and put on shoe coverings as well as a mask. He came out to replace a damaged piece of flooring and the threshold of a door, and ended up also replacing the molding in front of the door and part of the weather stripping (I won’t lie... an extra fee was added on to original quote for this, but he was here and knowledgeable about what needed to be done). If you need a quick turnaround, this company is for you.
