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.

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. 

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.

Reviews for The Colony flooring installation and repair professionals

Juan was the only installer that addressed my main concern which was to ensure the slab was level before installing the floor. He took the time to check every room and then pour self leveling concrete to ensure floor was level. The finished floor is solid unlike the one that we replaced which was installed back in 2011 that creaked when we stepped on it. His price was fair and upfront. He was punctual. He and his partner were efficient and precise. I definitely recommend this company, they know what they are doing and are true professionals.

We could not be happier about our experience with Smiley's Hardwoods! They showed up on time each day and were very professional. We were concerned about how the new hardwood floors would match the existing flooring. The end result was a perfect match! They did an outstanding job and we would not hesitate to recommend this company.

First and foremost, Rick and his team are true professionals who take extreme pride in the work they do. This is something you don't find in a lot of contractors these days. I just bought a house and I needed my wood floors screened (slightly sanded) and a new coat of polyurethane applied. I had minor scratches and scuffs throughout the house. Rick quoted me a good price so I decided to go with him. They came and did the work and the floors looked good. After a day I began to notice certain areas of the floor flaking. I immediately notified Rick of the problem. After inspecting the floor it was determined the floors had originally been done with a water based poly. Rick's team went over it with an oil based one, so the poly never adhered to the floor. Without making any excuses and without hesitation, Rick told me they will go through the house and correct the issue. I have a 3200 sq house and 90% of it has wood floors. They came back, re-sanded the floors and applied a new coat of polyurethane. For some unknown reason, that second application did not take either. I was pretty irritated because of having to be displaced yet again and the issue still went unresolved. I have dealt with situations like this in the past and this is typically where most contractors start making excuses or putting the blame elsewhere. This is also the time they typically see the ugly side of my personalty. Before any of that could happen, Rick explained that he did not understand why we were having these issues but he was determined to make things right. He said they would have to come in and start from scratch. This involved sanding the floors down to the bare wood, re staining and reapplying a new coat of polyurethane. I was not happy knowing I would have to be out of my house for several more days. The upside would be the floors looking brand new. I also realize things sometimes don't go as expected. The fact that Rick was determined to correct the issue no matter the loss he would incur, showed true integrity and pride in his work. I have the utmost respect for that. I was annoyed at having to be displaced yet again, but ultimately I just wanted the job done correctly. After it was all said and done, the floors look amazing! I waited to write this review ensuring there would be no further issues. At the end of the day this was a win-win. I for all intense and purposes, got brand new floors because Ricks team took out every scratch, ding and imperfections that remained. Rick has a customer for life and a strong spokesman for the amazing work his guys do. So I will say, if you need work done on your wood floors, look no further than Venetian Hardwood Floors!! Not only do they do excellent work, they do it at a really fair price. They have an extreme level of pride in the work they do and above all...an extreme level of integrity.

José did an amazing job on three flooring projects. He installed cork laminate flooring in my home gym and in my office. He also installed carpet tile in a very curvy closet. He was so clean and professional through the project. His work is perfection! His communication is very good and follows through on everything he says. I can’t recommend José enough!

Recommending him and team to all friends and family. Thanks Kevin!
