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.

The workmanship is excellent. The floor is beautiful. The team is very helpful with extra tasks around the project including outside the scope of the flooring project. Martin and his team are easy to work with and again very helpful with additional tasks that may arise.

The crew from Modern Blueprint were very professional and did a really excellent job for our flooring project. They gave a reasonable estimate (3 days for single floor) for the time to complete and stuck to it and left the place very clean post completion.

Petru did a great job on our project! He demo'd the existing flooring and left everything spotless in preparation for the install. We were very happy with the floors when he was done, and he finished at the low end of the time he projected. Super nice and easy to work with!

We were so lucky to have found Martin and his team on Thumbtack!! I interviewed 5 different contractors and most of them balked when they saw we had red, engineered, Brazilian Cherry hardwood floors. Martin was upbeat and enthusiastic, and it is very clear he CARES about what he does. My goal was to remove as much red from the floors as possible, and stain them if we had to. After removing layers and layers of aluminum oxide from the factory finished floors the wood underneath was gorgeous. I was a little leery of leaving them natural as the red tones aren't my preference. But after some helpful discussion I trusted them to go forward with the natural wood. I am so glad I did! The floors turned out gorgeous. Our realtor stopped by and exclaimed how impressed they with how it turned out. (My terrible phone photos do not do them any justice.) Martin and his team were very polite, and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Duncan Hardwood Floors to anyone who wanted a high quality, professional, affordable update to their hardwood floors and done on schedule.

If you need your floors stained, look elsewhere. We hired Brad to refinish and stain our hardwood floors, and he is just not knowledgeable in this department at all. He sanded down our floors over and over again because he could not get the stain to look good. At the end, he sanded down our floors 4 times (taking so much life out of our floors). Each time he tried to restain, it turned out blotchy, uneven, and horrible looking. Even he admitted that it looked terrible. What should have been a 4 day job, turned into 2 weeks of us not being able to live in our home, only to be left with an unfinished job. He continued to promise he could fix it, costing us more and more money on supplies and time. We ended up hiring another company and learned the stains he was using were not even to be used on hard wood floors. And the tape he put down tore away the paint off of our cabinets, baseboards, and banister. An absolute mess. Spend the extra money and go with someone who knows what they are doing.

We hired Alex and his dad for replacing our carpet floor with hardwood (400 sqft). They arrived on time and worked extensively to ensure attention to detail and highest quality. They kept the area very clean all the days of job. They went above and beyond in addressing all our concerns and communicated well. We highly recommend Alpha Wood Floors!

They did a great job overall. The floors look nice and we get great compliments on them. I was disappointed that we didn't redo all the entire floor and feathered in previous floors. I wish we would have known that the feathering in would be seen. Overall though, they did a great job and we will have them back to do our front steps in our entry as well. We did have to have them back to fix a couple areas where the varnish didn't cover well. If I could give them 4.5 stars, I would.

We weren't sure what level of work the hardwood floors in our new house needed, but Viktor gave us a few options, and actually recommended one of the lower-cost options. We were clueless, and would have been willing to pay much more, luckily he was incredibly honest. We're very satisfied with the work that was completed; our floors look great! Also important to note - Viktor was very easy to communicate with via email, which was important to us as we have very busy schedules and can't always take the time to make a call.

Jess was very responsive prior to our meeting and did a quick and efficient job of stretching our carpet in several areas. I was impressed with the result and thrilled with the overall look of my floors after he cleaned all the carpet on both levels of our house. Professional, prompt, excellent results, and a fantastic value. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Prowash Plus again!
