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.

I had new carpeting put in three rooms. The installation was great. When I noticed a problem with one of the rooms, they came right out and corrected the problem. I will definitely be using them again when I need carpeting.

We loved working with Lucio and his team! They helped us find carpet we liked at a reasonable price. They moved all our furniture, installed the new carpet and put everything back for a very reasonable price. They were professional and kept us updated throughout the whole process. Lucio was able to get our carpet installed less than 2 weeks from the date we met and they installed on a weekend. They even went the extra mile and helped my husband move a big chair and bar (not part of their scope of work). Thanks again guys! We will definitely refer others to you after such a great experience.

Wonderful experience with both John and his Floor Coverings company. Very professional. The crew was friendly and organized and not only did a great job installing my flooring and carpet, they did a thorough job of cleaning up afterwards. Highly recommend them!

Hired Nunez Carpet to install carpet in an entire house. Set up the time for 8:00 am the next morning. Rec'd a text message the day the job was to start at 7:20 am...saying he was not going to show up with crew...family emergency. What bullshit! The other reviews were right...this guy is not reliable and i would never waste my time with him again. Buyer beware!

Our experience with Surplus Floors has been great. We were looking to replace the carpet in upstairs rooms of our home and decided on engineered wood. Right from the setup of initial appointment for measurements and estimates to the completion of the wood floor installation we are very happy with the level of service provided by Surplus Floors. We visited the store location to pick the type of wood and the color which was a huge plus. The installation was completed on time and with quality at the best possible price. Their services fully met our expectations and now we are now planning to have the stairs replaced with engineered wood with them. I highly recommend Surplus Floors for floor installation work!!

Had them refinish my hardwood floor and install over 2000sq ft of carpet. Wood floors look great! There were a few touch up areas but they came in and took care of them, no problem. They didn't have a huge selection of nylon carpets to choose from in their showroom samples, but we found one we liked at a larger place. I asked MP if they could get it and they beat the big place's initial pricing by A LOT (the big place did come down once they realized we were shopping the job out, but it was kind of insulting and one of the reasons I ended up going with MP). I appreciated MP giving me their best pricing up front for the carpet and not jerking us around like a few other places. Robert was very easy to work with and ensured that things came out to our liking. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends and family.

I had a wonderful experience with Michael and Big Deal Flooring! I bought a house and found out afterwards that they had 6 cats! My Daughter is highly allergic so it postponed our big move in. I called Michael and he and his team came out the very next day and got my carpet installed. I am very happy and definitely recommend Big Deal Flooring.

He installed my carpet and came back and fixed some minor issues. That was before I paid him. Once he got paid, I reached out to him for another issue and he promised to come but never showed up. He would not answer my calls or text messages. This was a very frustrating experience. His prices are ok but I would rather spend a few extra dollars and get the work done by a more reputable company that would be more responsive and fix any issues down the road. I do not recommend this company since the owner is not trust worthy and does not stand behind his word.
