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.

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.

PCC Carpet did a great job on our carpet! They responded quickly to my request for an estimate and were able to complete the project before the other company I contacted could even have started installation. The carpet looks wonderful and we really couldn't be happier with our choice.

TNA did an EXCELLENT job installing carpet in my home. They were prompt, professional and the value was top notch. I needed carpet replaced in my newly purchased home right away and the day I inquired they sent someone out to quote me and a week later I had comfy new carpet! I love that it is a family run and operated business, Ty, his wife Corrie and their son are super kind and sweet. They worked with me to find something that fit my budget and followed up every step of the way. I highly recommend them to anyone! THANKS TNA CARPET!!!!

I had already purchased carpet to save some money and needed to have it installed. Trestan submitted a bid first and I didn't even need to look elsewhere. He was amazingly priced and was very great about getting back to me the same day. We set up everything and he confirmed to make sure we were set. I ran into an issue with my carpet being delivered but when I let Trestan know, he was awesome in moving back the install. The day of he got here, ran me through the project and went on his way. He was a great guy and we chatted as he installed the carpet. Nothing but the greatest review for Trestan and Birkel Enterprise. I have already recommended him to friends and co-workers. He will help with simple projects like mine or the whole deal of measure/purchase/install. Seriously, like the title says, look no further. Thank you Trestan!!!

Outstanding work and team of professionals at TNA. As procurement professional, I have high standards of Customer Service, quality and professionalism.

We got the opportunity to get to know them on a personal level and we expect to work with them again in the very near future. Highly recommend choosing TNA Carpet for your carpet or floor installations!

Can't say enough about these guys. From the initial appointment to install the process went smoothly. Corrie was great to work. We had to push out the schedule and they were happy to accommodate. We chose a pattern style carpeting in a very small room and the installer was very diligent to make sure it looked perfect. I hope to work with these guys again when we finish our basement floors!

TNA Carpet did an excellent job. Corey's experience was invaluable in recommending a carpet that precisely matched our taste and met our needs. The installation was perfect. Beautifully done. Spotless cleanup. The crew even studied traffic patterns to determine where seams should be! This is a family business that truely demonstrates the values we only read about these days. Quality workmanship , integrity, and competitive prices. And they're nice people! Don't waste more time shopping. Just hire them.

Quick response, had in home appointment the next morning and installed 3 days later. Very nicely done around radiator. Did notice one tiny scrape in newly painted wall after they left but wasn't a big deal so didn't call them, but I'm sure they would take care of it if I did. Would definitely call them the next time I get carpet installed!

I recently had some work done in my basement by TNA carpet. Our basement flooded at the end of april and we were hoping that the carpet could be salvaged after all of the water mitigation was complete. We needed the carpet stretched and re-tucked in the entire basement after having to pull it all up as a result of the flooding, and we needed it done fast as my wife was past her due date for our first baby boy! TNA worked around our schedule, arrived within 24 hours of our inquiry to them, and showed up at 7:00 P.M to complete a 2 hour minimum job! The quality of work was impecable, with very high attention to detail to restore our basement back to it's original form! Very friendly, family oriented business that absolutely deserves nothing but the best feedback I can provide. Pricing was also very fair! I would recommend TNA carpet to anyone searching for a company to install new or existing carpet! It is good to see that their are still businesses out there that are customer oriented, reliable, and still perform their work at a very high quality.

Trestan was absolutely amazing! He was really helpful and knowledgeable when helping us choose a carpet style that best fit our home and lifestyle. He was very genuine and didn't try to push us into anything we didn't need. We really appreciate his idea to restretch our lower level carpet to help save us time and money. When it came time for installation he was incredibly flexible with days and times to allow us to be able to move our furniture in and out of the rooms in our home so we didn't have to disrupt our normal daily routines. He did a phenomenal job!!

If I could add more stars I would! Ty, Ahmad, John, and Corrie are a great team! They show tremendous pride in their work which leads to excellent results. They did an incredible job on everything and took amazing care with our steps. They are polite and even went the extra mile to create a little step stool for our dog. In a time where it is difficult to find quality installers, these folks stand out and make the bar even higher. I highly recommend TNA Carpet!

Hiram and his associate did a wonderful job installing carpet in our home. He was also very flexible with our changing schedule. When I asked for him to show more color options, he was very responsive and went over and above delivering more options. Overall, we are thrilled with the wonderful job he did...I wish I had done it years ago! I highly recommend Vader Industries and Hiram is a pleasure to work with.
