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.

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.

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.

We spoke with Mark on a Tuesday and the floor was completed by that Saturday afternoon. Their price was very competitive and that did not reflect any loss in quality in materials. I would highly recommend this pro for flooring projects.

We highly recommend Antonio Lee and Lee Hardwood floors for all of your floor needs. We hired Antonio after meeting with two other floor refinishing companies. His bid was competitive . He applied 3 coats of polyurethane where the other two companies were only going to apply 2 coats. He also replaced the carpet in our master bedroom and stretched all the carpet in the upstairs rooms- all excellently done. Antonio and his crew were always on time Antonio responded to my texts and answered my phone calls on the first ring. He was always available to answer our questions. We wanted our red oak floors refinished prior to putting our house on the market on May 4. Antonio accommodated our challenging time frame. The floors are beautiful and we attribute the amazing refinishing job to the the quick sale of our house. It sold the first day to the first buyers who toured it. The floors are so impressive as you enter the home! We traveled to our new home in La(finally moving home after relocating to Gastonia after a hurricane Katrina) while the work was being done . We were completely comfortable leaving our keys and home in the care of Antonio. He is honest, professional and aman of his word. We are completely satisfied with the top quality work performed by Antonio!

These guys are amazing. Very respectful of my home while I was at work. Left them alone for 3 or 4 days and my floors are amazing. They had to remove ceramic tiles that had been in the home for at least 20 years. That in itself was not an easy task. They had to come back to work on a small area, without question. I would recommend them if you want your floors redone or new one installed.

Cannot go wrong with Take the Floor! I highly recommend them. Work quality and attention to detail was fantastic. I feel like they treated the job as if it were their own house.

Lee and his team did an excellent job. Engineered hardwood floors required a repair under the fridge, and overall refinishing. Work was done well, on schedule and on budget. Would (and have) recommend!

We are a couple of days into the process of refinishing our 100 y.o. hardwood floors and Cornell and his team has been great to work with. He gave me a quote, and a few days later they were hard at work on our floors. They actually showed up on time, which is a rare thing these days. They have been great to work with, and even worked with us through a few changes along the way. So far, I highly recommend them to everyone. I'll update later with pics. Looking forward to the finished product!

I could not say enough about how impressed I am with the job Deen and the Rideen Connect team did with my flooring. I received multiple estimates and decided to go with Rideen based on the professionalism and project completion timeline they provided. They went above and beyond while completing the work, even offering to put in the new vanity I purchased since they had to remove the old pedestal sink to put the new flooring down. If you want someone who is going to go above and beyond and ensure the job is done to your satisfaction, go with Rideen Connect.

Mark replied promptly and the work we needed was done within a day from the initial request! He repaired a hole in our concrete slab/vinyl flooring to make it blend seamlessly with the rest of the linoleum. Great work completed quickly at a fair price. Would hire him again!!

Jim did a great job replacing our carpet on our 2nd floor. Not only does it look great but his quote was far less than any others we received and he was very responsive with all messages and questions. We would highly recommend him to friends and family!

William and his guys did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier. He did this with no transitions into the rooms or closets and the floor looks seamless. And was done for less than 1/2 of what the stores wanted for installation. We are going to redo our bathrooms and kitchen and this will be the first call I make! Incredible job!!

Mark has been nothing but helpful during this stressful process of remodeling our new purchase. From start to finish, he and his team were top notch. After receiving several very upsetting estimates from others, Turn Call was able to handle the job at a great price. We not only had our entire house floors from carpet to LVP, our home was deep cleaned and it was also pressure washed. We will definitely be a returning client and a promoter for Turn Call LLC. Great job and thanks again for your hard work.
