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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Ortiz Flooring did an amazing job installing laminate flooring in my home. I highly recommend this company for your flooring needs.

Hardwood floor install looks great! Only disappointment was the new floor was not matched to the old floor as closely as I wouldve hoped, it was an older floor so that could be difficult. They worked with me in a very timely manner and got in and out in 2 days!

Chris did an excellent job on my floors! They weaved into existing hardwood floors to match an entire floor. Chris has a very open line of communication and is always available if needed. They also discovered some preexisting conditions during the floor removal and they were more than fair to get all of these situations corrected. I would highly recommend for any flooring job and their finished product was top notch!

They did an amazing job on my floors. Juvy and his team went above and beyond getting everything level between multiple rooms. They converted carpet, old hardwoods, and multiple layers of kitchen tile to the new flooring. This was done seamlessly with no need for a single strip of transition. I highly recommend Juvys flooring to anyone needing a new floor installation.

Oak City Flooring did a great job completing our project. They were very responsive to our initial inquiry. They arrived on time for the initial inspection and day of work. The quote for time and cost was accurate. Also, they were very kind to answer all of our questions. In addition, they made sure that the work was completed to our satisfaction. I highly recommend Oak City Flooring for your flooring needs. I will definitely hire them again for any future flooring projects.

One of the best flooring experiences I have ever had. Extremely fair pricing , very knowledgeable and excellent responsiveness. His crew took on a fairly difficult laminate floor install on a house from the 50's and I couldn't be more impressed by the outcome. I would highly recommend Juvy and his team for all flooring needs !!!

I was nervous when I decided to put a floating floor on top of an existing engineered hardwood floor which the previous owner did not take good care of. I made the decision to hire Juvys flooring and I was impressed beyond what I could have imagined. They were on time and finished the 655+ job within hours. I would recommend and hire them again on any other flooring project that they do. You will not go wrong by hiring them. Thank you again for doing such a great job!

It has been about a year since Juvy did our floors but I felt compelled to write a review because he did such an AMAZING job. We asked him to completely redo the floors in our home (refinish hardwood on 1st floor, put down new hardwood on 2nd, and put down new vinyl on 3rd) and he did it in a timely cost-efficient manner. We have people complimenting our floor every time they come by. Couldn’t recommend him enough

GID was excellent to work with. They sanding our existing hardwood floors and blended the existing kitchen hardwood into the living room. It was a seamless transition from old to new flooring. They removed the existing carpet from bedrooms, a stairwell and the living room and replaced with hardwood. Our home is from the 1970s and had squeaky floors and some existing unknown problems; they were upfront with potential extra costs, which was included in the estimate. They communicated quickly when they found an issue and how they fixed it. I also appreciated they put several stain samples on the floor in a couple locations in the house which made it easier to select the stain. The crew did an excellent job removing the sawdust and the floors were beautifully finished.

Alvero and his team were outstanding! I highly recommend Ortiz Flooring. My experience with Ortiz Flooring has been great. Alvero is one of the most professional and responsive people that I have ever dealt with. He met me on site at my townhome with plenty of samples for me to choose from and we were able to schedule the installation date for the carpet and vinyl flooring. On the day of the install, he and his crew were able to complete the job in a single day and my place looked great when they were done. I will definitely use them again if I have any flooring needs.

I needed a professional to finish the job I had started as a very ambitious DIYer to refinish pre-finished red oak floors (DIY lesson learned: just hire someone). Before speaking to Scorpion Flooring, I had gotten a quote from another company that was highly reviewed on Yelp. The other company charged $125 for an estimate, took 3 days to send the quote, & the quote was unaffordable for us (almost 4k). Then I got on Thumbtack and posted my project. Scorpion Flooring responded within 15 minutes to say they could come look at the floor for free to give an estimate. I felt like it was appropriate for a professional to see the floor before providing an estimate, so I called Scorpion Flooring and set up a same-day estimate. Arturo came out two hours later (did I mention this was between Christmas and New Years?) and provided a free, reasonably priced estimate before he left the house! This experience was wonderful because Arturo listened to what we wanted the floor to look like (we wanted to keep the bevel lines between the planks because it looked more rustic, even though that isn't how things are usually done). He also listened to me describe our lifestyle, and suggested the upgrade to Bona Traffic HD (we have a dog!). The project was priced at about $3.23 per square foot with the upgrade. Besides the great value & impressive pictures online, I hired Scorpion Flooring because they were available to start in accordance to when we wanted to move in (within a week and a half of the first time we talked--other companies were booked a full month out). Plus, he finished ahead of schedule! During the final walk-through, we decided the shoe moldings should get another coat of finish. Scorpion Flooring came out again, the next day with no issues, to make sure we were 100% satisfied with the look of our refinished floors. They turned out beautifully!!

Thanks to Covid this review is a little late. I really enjoyed working with Happy Floors to install carpet in my closet. It was a small job that the big carpet store dropped the ball on. They were too busy to do my closet despite having agreed to do it previously. So what to do…enter Happy Floors and Thumbtack and within 24-48 hours my carpet was in my closet looking lush and lovely. I’m very pleased not just with the work but with the professional and timely way it was handled. Excellent work! I’m very happy with Happy Floors!
