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.

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. 

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.

Henry and staff at HG Flooring were great. They recommended a store to get great prices on flooring, and gave me a great price to replace the flooring on my main floor and replaced the carpet on my stairs which were damaged by a previous tenant. They were booked out for the rest of the year, but i informed Henry that i needed it complete by January 1st for a potential new tenant. He worked on Christmas day and new years eve to make it work for me. Great company with great staff. I highly recommend this company!

From start to finish US Flooring was very responsive and understanding of my flooring needs. Jose Perez was very helpful throughout the entire process. He helped me to find a solution to my flooring needs at a cost that fit my budget. The work was done well and professionally. I live stayed out of the home during the work and Jose personally went by the job to check out the work and send me progress updates. I enjoyed working with him and his team at US Flooring and would recommend them to anyone. I already have more projects I plan to hire them for!

This was an excellent job. We were bringing my mother home after a stroke instead of sending her to a nursing home, in light of COVID-19. We needed new floors in her bedroom. The floors are beautiful and done in time to bring Mom home to a beautiful bedroom.

Highly recommend! Ruben and his team installed hardwood floors in our family room and it looks absolutely amazing. He came out to do an estimate and we were sold from there. He is very knowledgeable about the business and flexible towards our needs. We wanted a specific brand/model# floor to match the house and he said no problem and got it done. They were on time, professional, efficient and awesome at what they do. I will definitely be using and recommending JRV flooring for future contracting needs.

After reading all the good reviews I thought I would have a good experience but I was wrong. Poor customer service and very unprofessional. Hopefully, this was a one time thing for USA Pro Flooring.

Randy was excellent to work with! He responded quickly to my request for a quote as was able to come out the next day. He helped me understand what was needed for each room as well as made suggestions on what may not work. He was punctual with a written quote and his price was competitive. I booked with him and was able to have my install start the very next week. The crew was on time and finished the job in one day. The floors are beautiful and have transformed my home. I am extremely happy and would definitely recommend and hire Floor Techs again!!!

Ideally I would give US Flooring 4.5 stars but since that isn't an option, I settled for 5. During the project we hit a little snag. First, there was more than 10% waste and it ended up costing me an extra box. Second, the estimator who measured the apt measured incorrectly. His estimate was short roughly about 80 sq ft., meaning I would pay MORE than the original contract. Thirdly, after these hiccups, the workers on site began to speak amongst themselves rudely about me in Spanish. Unfortunately, I understood what was being said. I still give US Flooring 5 stars because these minor issues that could've easily turned into a major one were quickly resolved by the OWNER of the company. At all times he remained professional, friendly, easy to talk to, and proved to be a problem solver. This to me is an indispensable asset, especially amongst contractors. I truly appreciate him and would recommend the company to friends and family.

Services provided where exactly as installer said. Material used was excellent. Service was fast cleanup was complete. Very professional and friendly service. Would recommend this service to anyone needing flooring. My neighbor saw him and ask him to come across the street for an estimate and I highly recommended his work. From all the estimates I got his was comparable to the others if not the best very satisfied we'll use him again.

Rigon was very quick to respond to my request. He came out the very next day to provide an on-site free quote and the install was set up a few days later. His prices are very reasonable. He is an honest man and his workers did a awesome job! They even secured my boards underneath before installing the new padding & carpet. So my floor does not squeak any longer which is perfect for the nursery! Not to mention they were super fast! I will definitely recommend and choose them again for future projects.

Randy came by the house on Thursday Sept 26th to take a look at the floor and get the measurements. I explained to him the scope of work that needs to be done, and that I will need to submit the quote to my home insurance asap. I kindly asked if he’d be able to get the quote to me soon as I will be out of town from Sept 30th - Oct. 9th and once the quote is approved he can get started on the work. It was extremely critical that I got the quote out to the insurance company to expedite the approval process. Randy indicated to me he’d send the quote that day (Sept 26th) and that if he didn’t he’d send it the next day on the 27th. Well the 27th came and nothing still not quote. I texted Randy if he had sent the quote he stated he didn’t get to it and will send it that evening, the evening came and still nothing. I reached out today (Sunday) and for no response. If this is ANY indication of what the service would be like then I am very happy I did not hire Randy and his team. However the reason I am writing this review is because my time has been wasted! Because I will be on travel I will have to wait another week before moving on getting my floors done! My simple advice would be to stay away!
