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.

After a main line backup, we were really in a bind to get new carpet installed before a holiday weekend. PCC Carpet promptly answered our Thumbtack request, offered to stop by our place the next morning to give us an estimate, and installed our carpet the very same day. The carpet looks great, and we will refer their services to anyone.

We used TNA Carpets to select/order carpet and for the installation. Every single aspect of the project went smoothly - from the free estimate, scheduling our install date to the installation itself. The guys who did the installation were incredibly nice, polite and more importantly...did an AWESOME & efficient job. They even moved put our section back together and moved in all the furniture. I would highly recommend you go with TNA Carpets over another company. You'll be so happy you did:)

I had carpet removed and replaced. Only knocked them down to 4 instead 5 because they did not install a lip onto the carpet landing. Otherwise, they did the job very well for a good price and I would hire them again.

Hiram did an excellent job with our basement bedroom carpet. I contacted several companies and he was the only one to respond right away. He was able to come out the following day and then 2 days later install the carpet. It was very affordable and convenient to get all materials with him too. Highly recommend! Thanks Hiram!

Project: Lower level Rec room carpeted and staircase carpeted. Heather and Tim were easy to work with. Very courteous, polite, and responsive. They made sure to listen and understand my objectives and followed through to the last detail. Jack did a great job with the install and lower level finishings. I recommend this company for your future needs.

John’s crew did a great job at quickly and correctly installing carpet that we provided for them. We had a very quick rental turn and John was able to get us a spot to complete the job within a weeks time. He also gave us a very fair and competitive offer on the price to install. The only problems was that the crew took the left over carpet with them which we were going to use in case we need to patch up carpet in the future. Additionally we ended up getting more carpet than John estimated because the carpet guy at Menards didn’t think John’s estimate was accurate. Luckily we did because we would have been short by 50 sq feet. Overall, I would hire again because they did a professional job and it looks great, John just needs a few improvements in the systems of the business.

Corrie and Ty were great to work with. They came out twice to our house to look at the space and help select wood and carpet and were able to match our existing carpet perfectly. Their prices were very reasonable and certainly better than dealing with a big box store. We had some electrical issues that interfered with their installation, but Ty came back as many times as needed to get the last touches installed. Very responsive and the finished basement looks great. Thanks guys for all of your help.

Tim was an awesome contractor. He came over a couple of times and worked with me on the carpet, padding etc. He was very professional and answered all of my questions. Jack, his partner came over on Monday and did the first of three areas. He took pictures for me of the wooden floor underneath so if I decide in the future to sell my house prospective owners can see what it looks like under the carpet. Both Jack and Tim handled my dog my barking dog very well. I did a comparison with several companies and though one came in a little cheaper, I was not impressed by the customer service. Tim worked with me on the price and I felt comfortable with contracting him for this work. Tim andHeather communicated with me regularly. I am very pleased with how the new carpet was installed and looks. I would highly recommend this company to do carpet installations.

TNA Carpet was out the same day to do measurements. They were able to do just what I was looking for for a very reasonable price. They were out two days later to do the install which ended up looking great. I'll be calling them again next time I need flooring.

Corrie was our representative and she really did a great job. It was so convenient having her come out to the house to show us carpet samples. She was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Ty was our installer and he was absolutely awesome!! He was great with our little daughter as his "helper", he was also friendly, courteous and did a great job on the installation, the room looked really beautiful when he was done. I would definitely use them again and request Ty.
