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 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. 

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.

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.

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.

Our experience with Alfa Flooring and Stone was A+. Dan and his crew did a fantastic job installing stone composite plank flooring throught the 1st floor of our home. Dan stated that it would take 5 days. It took 5 days. His crew organized their equipment at the end of every evening and cleaned up after themselves. They were on time everyday and worked diligently throughout the day, only taking a break for lunch. The cost was well below the big box floor installers.

I love my new floor, and I have Josh to thank for that. His workmanship is top notch. He is a true professional, he knows his stuff and takes pride in the finished project. He was as invested in the outcome as we were, and that made all of the difference. I would definitely recommend JJ Flooring for any flooring project you have. Will definitely use again.

Amazing work at a VERY affordable price!! Dan and his partner were great to work with. He has many flooring options to choose from, his pricing is unbeatable and they were very meticulous when removing our old flooring and installing the LVP. (~600-700 sq feet) They were truly a pleasure to work with and very professional/ personable. Can’t wait to have them back to install flooring on our upstairs bedrooms.

Josh and crew did the floors in my hallway and spare room. They look better than I ever expected them to and they went above and beyond with extra details to make sure the floors flowed well with the trim and baseboards. He responded very quickly, had great prices and easy to work with. He even offered to help me move my furniture back! My only complaint is I don't have more floors for them to do.

Robert is a very knowledgeable young man in the hard wood floor business We hired him to buff and reapply polyurethane to our recently purchased home. He did a great job, was very prompt and courteous. If we decide to have the floors refinished I would not hesitate to call him.

Our entire experience with TNTFlooring was exceptional! Turk and his team are the best, hands down. They finished our job in just a few days and the quality is impeccable. I am floored with how beautiful our new refinished hardwood floor looks in our master bedroom. TNTFlooring is the best and I’ll be using them again!

BC Builders did a phenomenal job! The estimate was the most thorough, with Willian pointing out issues to consider and ways for his team to fix them, like creaking I. The floor. We ended up doing 2 floors of laminate, for ~1100 sf. They removed both carpet and the previous laminate, worked on the floors so that all creaks were fixed and laid all the laminate within 3 days work. The team sent were efficient, professional and clearly good at their craft. I’m more than impressed with the job and will willingly recommend them to others.

TntFlooring provided a great service and quality workmanship. The flooring looks brand new and the wood grain really stands out. My wife and I can’t stop looking at it. Turk and his crew we’re very meticulous in their work and restored the floor to its original finish. The price was reasonable which included a senior discount. I recommend them, you’ll meet a great group of guys.

I hired Carpet Restretch Repair to pull up new carpeting in one room to prime and seal the floor beneath after discovering pet odor that was lingering. They coordinated well with me, since I am offsite. Did the job and reinstalled the carpet beautifully. Very trustworthy, and cleaned up after. Would hire again.

Alexander Contracting installed LVP in 2 bathrooms in my house. They showed up very quickly for a quote and they were able to fit my project in very quickly after I contacted them when I was ready to do the work. They were extremely respectful in my home and I’m so happy with the final product. I would definitely recommend these guys for flooring installation!

This was a terrible experience. We hired this company to lay down floors in our entry way, kitchen, and office. The employees showed up late and after 2 days of work, they had only completed 1/10 of the work. You can see in the pictures that the work that was done was horrible. We paid in full plus extra and now we have to hire another company to fix and finish all the work.

I would give 10 stars if I could! My new floor looks amazing! They even picked up the supplies for me on the way to my house because my car is not big enough for the pick-up. Fair price for good quality work, which they got done same day! Plus, they sent me a pic to ensure I knew my house was locked up right when they were done! Excellent service!

Turk came to estimate my refinishing job, and when I accepted the quote, he scheduled a day to start. He didn't show up on that day and turned off his phone. Eventually, he apologized and asked if he could come the following day, and I agreed. Then, he didn't show up that day! We were on a tight timeline to get our floors done before we moved in, but he assured us he could get it done, and now it won't be done. He was friendly, but this is very unprofessional. Book at your own risk.
