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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Shoreview flooring installation and repair professionals
Wil l.
We started laying Lifeproof flooring in our 9’ by 7’ walk-in closet and quickly realized there was a problem with the sub floor. We went to Thumbtack for the first time to find a professional to help us figure out what the problem was. Seth from Midwest Flooring was quick to respond to our request. We set up an appointment. He was on time meaning 10 to 15 minutes early. Seth quickly figured out that the sub floor was only part of the problem. The floor joist under the sub floor was bowed up which pushed the sub floor up along that joist. He was able to correct the issue quickly and professionally. After the sub floor was fixed properly, Seth reinstalled the Lifeproof flooring. As we continue with our home remodel, we will definitely be hiring Seth from Midwest Flooring for all of our flooring needs.

We interviewed multiple contractors for our project (remove old stick on tile and add vinyl floor to kitchen and bathroom), before we chose Quick Floors. From the very beginning of the process, Quick Floors team was responsive, and professional. They offered great value, high quality product and service. Communication was easy, estimate and contract - clear and detailed, invoicing - professional and complete. The crew showed up on time and completed the job in one day! The clean up was also done on the same day. We love our new floors and will definitely go with Quick floors again for any future needs! I highly recommend Quick floors to anyone with a floors project - you will be in good hands!

We had our existing hardwood floors sanded and refinished. We also had new hardwood floors installed to tie into our existing floors. This was done seamlessly with care. Can't tell new floor from the old. We also had all of the stairs and risers sanded and refinished as well. We were extremely satisfied with the work Ray did. The project was completed in a reasonable amount of time, he made sure the job was done to our satisfaction, and was reasonably priced. We would recommend Floors with Hart and would use his services again in the future.

Dustin from Bolin Floors was excellent. He had fair pricing, exceptional quality work and it was all completed in the initial time frame. I hired Bolin floors to sand, stain a different color and matte finish of my newly purchased 1950's house. The floors came out better than I expected!

We cannot describe, really, how great Ray was to work with. The experience, craftsmanship, and flexibility we needed can be found in this business. Our hardwood floors and new staircase look incredible. If you want the best, go with Floors with Hart.

Our floor was a disaster, so much so that we had a few contractors walk in and would not even give us an estimate. Quick floors was willing to take on the project and work with us to fix the problems. They also lived up to their name, our job is scheduled the same week and they finished in two days.

Be careful if you should choose to hire this company to install flooring. Communication is essential. My floors look great and my steps are not so great. I would suggest that someone be present in the home the entire time the work is being completed or you may be surprised at what you get or of the damage that may be done to your home.

Noah completed a project that was abandoned by a previous contractor. Noah was responsive and quickly able to come out and provide an estimate for the project along with a timely service date. The floor installation was done quickly and Noah was able to come up with an innovative solution for installing the flooring next to the shower. The job looks great and I would hire (or recommend) Noah for another job.

Dustin was quick to respond and set up a date for the work to be done. His prices were far better than others had quoted. The floors were beautiful when he finished. Dustin is a super young man and a professional who takes pride in the work he does. I would refer him to anyone seeking to have their floors redone. The difference is unbelievable.
