Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Everyone who I spoke to and who worked on my floors were very professional and got the task done quickly. They took their job very seriously and it was very nicely finished. The owner Shawn responded very quickly to any issues I had initially. My floors look wonderful and I could not be happier at the job they did. I would highly recommend this business for anyone who wants to get their floors done.

Alain did a great job with refinishing our floors. We refinished about 850 sq feet and our floors look brand new! We had recently remodeled our kitchen and that had left lots of ugly patches in our wooden floor. Alain did a fantastic job of finding the right wood and then blended it in perfectly. It now looks like a brand new floor! He was very meticulous with his work and made sure he covered most things before starting and cleaned up very well after they were done. He showed up on time and Alain knew what he was doing. Highly recommend!!!

I tried several local pros to get a free estimate. No one else was able to show up. MF Flooring was very responsive. I got the quote to remove the current water damaged linoleum flooring and install vinyl sheet flooring in my bathroom within an hour. The representative was able to answer me all my questions and concerns via the thumbtack message, while I was traveling out of town. Maycon was the professional who came to install my flooring and he was very professional, his work and cuts were perfect and smooth. and cleaned up the space when he finished. Very good price. Easy payment options. I did through Zelle. Highly recommended!

Dennis and his team came within a days notice to install a carpet runner on two staircases. He was able to use leftover carpet from flooring installing to create a beautiful carpet runner for my home. The install was very clean, professional, and timely. I will be recommending Loza's Flooring for all carpeting needs.

We hired MidCounty Hardwood Floors to install hardwood on 2 levels of our home. Kenia responded to our request for an estimate immediately and every bit of communication afterwards was just like the first - super quick, ultra courteous, and information rich. The craftsmanship delivered by MidCounty was top notch, with the team led by Salvador, who is extremely passionate and took great pride in his team's work. We are extremely delighted with results and would definitely hire MidCounty again for my next flooring job! We will also be recommending them to any friends who are also seeking to have their flooring replaced.

Amazing work done by the team. They were extremely professional and finished my project ahead of schedule. They were the one stop shop for all my needs including painting , flooring, installing porcelain tiles and hardwood flooring. They accomplished all these projects in a week including material procurement. They did a very professional and a clean job and left nothing to chance. They also cleaned up very well and left no debris. I highly recommend them for any projects and rest assured that they will get the job done as expeditiously as possible.

I selected "Quality Floors Inc" to install laminate in my house. Unfortunately I failed to verify if the company was licensed either in Maryland or Virginia and if it had any experience in professional installation of flooring especially laminates. Edgar, with his email dated 04/20/18, guaranteed that he would have a three-year warranty to cover any major issues. Recently, I had an issue with Quality Floors Inc. Until the work was completed, Edgar communicated well. Once the job was done and defects showed up after a couple of months, I contacted him on several occasions as follows, but he did not answer my emails or calls. My father also called him twice, and he still did not respond. But at the same time, I noticed good customer reviews for this company on the "Thumbtack app." Also, Quality Floors claimed that it is "big on educating customers on the ins and ours of flooring so there is transparency and familiarity in the process". I encountered various problems with Edgar and his workers as follows: -- Edgar told me that 45 boxes of laminate flooring were sufficient, but I purchased additional boxes, thinking I will return the additional boxes. -- He failed to communicate that he or his workers did not properly measure the stairs until I asked him how many boxes are left. Later, he told me that he purchased additional boxes of laminate, which was never included in the original quote. -- He said he would take 2-3 days to complete the work. His workers were working from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm, but they could not complete the work as originally promised. -- During the installation, the workers damaged the walls of my home and I noticed issues with the installation, such as cracked/broken panels, nails, etc. (as shown in my pictures). Most of these could have been avoided if installed properly. They did not cover any furniture with plastic even after I requested three times, so I covered it myself. -- Edgar said that he would do a walk-through inspection on the last day of the installation and would do all the repairs, but I had to reschedule the inspection and repairs since there were a lot of issues. If Quality Floors Inc does not have a license in Virginia, or if the company cannot honor labor warranty, it should not undertake work in Virginia or anywhere else. Given the above problems, I DO NOT RECOMMEND this company.

My experience with Fenix Floor Coverings was great. They provided a cost competitive quote that was lower than any other I received, they were able to schedule the work within 24 hours and stretched 3 rooms with a power stretcher and re-secured seems where necessary making the carpet look like new again. Fantastic job and professionalism.

Eddy was on top of things from the moment we reached out to him. He came right away to give an estimate. He mapped out the job. Knew what was required. And then met his timeline. End result was wonderful. Professional work all around. Cleaned up and left the place just as he found it...but better of course. Would hire him again for any of my flooring needs.

I hardly write reviews but I had to today. If you are looking for flooring solutions go here. Better product, better company, financing offered... lifetime warranty on carpet... pay a couple extra hundred dollars for this company. The installers were PERFECT. In some cases, James the installer went out of their way to stop the subfloor from squeaking because I asked. The salesman was PERFECT. Extremely responsive. I trust this company and will only do business with them going forward.

Robert installed several hundred square feet of hardwood flooring in our Ashburn, VA home during the summer of 2014, and also installed 13 hardwood stair treads. Along with his professional installation work, he went above and beyond to advise us on the the different choices of materials, where to buy them, budgeting, and how much to buy. He worked more as a teammate and problem solver than as a contractor. We are glad we chose to work with Robert and we would certainly do so again.

Evelin responded quickly to my request, and Jose came out the next day (showed up early!) to provide an estimate. I needed the carpet re-stretched on my entire 2nd floor, as well as repairs on a couple of spots that my cats tore up. After assessing the job, Jose said he would be able to do the job immediately. He was done in 2 hours, and the carpet looks great! He even re-stretched the stairs, which they weren't sure could be done from based on the initial pictures.
