Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 long does carpet installation take?

You can expect carpet installation to take anywhere between several hours and a day. The length of the job depends on the scope of the project, room size, the type of carpet being installed and the condition of the work space. If your carpet crew needs to move furniture or work around other contractors, expect the project to take longer. Odd-shaped rooms with nooks and carpeted closets will also add time.

How do you plan for a carpet installation project?

Start by researching your options and figuring out the following:

  • What kind of carpet do you want?
  • How big are the rooms where you plan to install the carpet?
  • What type of backing is required?
  • Does the subfloor need to be prepared?
  • Do you need to make any repairs to your flooring?
  • When do you want the installation process done?
  • What is your budget?
  • Who is the best company or contractor in your area for the project?

Next, remove furniture from the room and give it a deep clean. Hire contractors to remove the current flooring if necessary. Schedule your carpet installer to have access to the room for as many days as they need for the project.

How do you measure for carpet installation?

The first step is to measure your room’s length and width, adding 2-3 three inches to each dimension to account for doorways and  trimming. Measure additional sections, like the other part of an L-shaped room. Multiply the length times width to get the overall area of carpeting. When measuring for stairs, make sure to measure all the way around the nosing of the stairs to account for extra carpeting needed.

What is tackless carpet installation?

Tackless carpet installation (or stretch-in installation) involves installing carpeting without the use of tacks. With this method, your flooring contractor will place the carpet over separate carpet cushions and secure it in place with a power stretcher, according to the Carpet and Rug Institute.

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.

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.

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.

I had a great experience with Wilson Flooring. Virginia was wonderful to work with and very responsive. She tracked down the exact carpet that we wanted and helped us coordinate installation for our new carpets in our house while we were in California. After installation was completed, my husband and I noticed a seam in the carpet. When we called Virginia and told her, she was at our house the next day looking at it. She immediately had her team redo that part with no questions asked. I would HIGHLY recommend Wilson Flooring and we will definitely be using them again in the future.

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!

I had been shopping around to have carpet installed in my unit and came across Allure flooring. Seth is professional, punctual and did a really good job with installation. I noticed couple of issues after, called him up and he came out in couple of days to fix the issue. I highly recommend working with Allure flooring and definitely will be using him going forward.

I am so pleased with my new carpet. I purchased carpet at a very great disc from "big company", because it was a discount they wouldn't do an install. Well their loss because Wilson Flooring Pros has a new happy customer that is very satisfied. Ms. Virgina, her husband and son were very patient with me, my anxiety and my back and forth questions. The value was good for the services and they were extremely nice and knew exactly what to do. Thank you so son has already rolled around on the floor in a black shirt and didn't have any fibers on it. Something that couldn't have happened with the old carpet. YIPPPEEEE!

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.)

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.

It is amazing how efficient these people are. The job is competed in no time at all. It help when you deal with someone who knows what they're doing. The installation was quick, easy, and clean. I was worried that someone will do the job carelessly because it is just one room. But they arrived with all the right tools to get it done professionally. I requested it to be done first thing in the morning before i head to work. And they were able to schedule it that time. Now am excited and ready to start the day knowing that i will return home to a new carpet. Thank you Carpet Zone. I will definitely call you again.

Bobby and his team were great! After getting 3 other quotes, we hired them to remove and replace the carpeting in our home. We not only found them to be the best priced option, but they really provided incredible service as well. Bobby was punctual, professional, and communicative throughout the process. Months after the install, we had a water leak and needed the padding replaced and the carpet reinstalled in one bedroom. We called Charity Floors and they took care of it, making it look like the damage never even happened! I would recommend this company to anyone looking for 5 star service with competitive rates.
