"Tim (the owner) contacted me right away. He (Tim) and his crew (Brian and Keith) showed up promptly as scheduled. They got to work right away and worked steadily until all the projects were completed. I hired them for a total of 4 jobs. Job #1 ...Remove and replace half of my garage ceiling that had separated and developed stress cracks extending out from the original large crack. Job #2...Remove old garage door opener and install new garage door opener, with exterior key pad, lower sensors, and a inside main control with WiFi connection. Job #3...Remove damaged drywall from lower half of my main floor powder room and install new drywall. Also replaced old wax ring under my toilet (since it had to be moved while doing the drywall) with a new one. Job #4...Fix electrical outlets in the garage that weren’t working (2) and install new box and cover on a third outlet. Tim ended up moving one of the outlets down farther from its original location so that I could have better access to it. I can assure you that all of the work performed was done extremely well, with attention to detail, care and professionalism. Tim and his crew went over the fine details of every job until it was done to perfection. Every one of the guys working here were extremely polite, professional, considerate, hard working and very dependable. Due to the large scoop of the projects that were being done they had to come back several days to do all the work. They were always on time, always explained what they were going to do, they told me what they had done that day, and what they planned to do next. They were very thorough, and knowledgeable. They communicated well and were very respectful. Tim always called me before he came to let me know exactly when he would be here. I really couldn’t have asked for a better group of guys to be working on my house and I couldn’t be more pleased with the finished product. I would very highly recommend Tim and Rushing Solutions to anyone. I have them already scheduled to come back and due a multitude of more projects that I had been putting off. Now that I have found Tim and Rushing Solutions I feel confident that almost any issue that comes up I can call upon Tim and he can handle it. What a great feeling it is to have someone like him available to me whenever I need something done. And for such a reasonable price!! I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family to this company. They really are a great bunch of guys to work with!! Thanks again Tim for all your wonderful work, time and efforts!"

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.
