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.
Reviews for Virginia Beach carpet installers

We had a great experience with Magic Carpet! Gary responded quickly and got out to our house to give us an estimate right away. He was very knowledgable about the carpet and helped us pick what was best for our home. You absolutely cannot beat their pricing and quick turn around in which we were able to have the carpet installed. The installers did a great job. We recommend highly Magic Carpet's services!

This was the BEST EXPERIENCE I have ever had in purchasing new carpet. The price, quality of the carpet (Mohawk), installation and clean-up were excellent. I highly recommend them and am getting ready to do the rest of the house with this company.

Gary's crew ripped out all the old carpet throughout my home and installed new carpet, all in one day. The quality is fantastic and I feel I was quoted a very fair price. I would highly recommend them!

I recarpeted the entire house with Magic Carpet and Flooring. They were quick, professional, and provided high quality carpet and installation at a very reasonable price. Their total cost for material and labor was stellar enough that the other people I solicited bids from even commented how good of a deal it was! Their installation work was good as well. The only downside was they didn't clean up very well when they left; I was cleaning up parts of carpet and pad well after they left. Regardless, I would recommend them to anyone!

Gary and his team were awesome. He came the same day I called him after hours and met with me to pick out the carpet. He measured the areas flawlessly, and carpet was installed without a hitch within a week. Thank you again!

Whole house carpet replacement. The installation started almost an hour later than scheduled. They made up for it in spades with their quick work. We moved all of our furniture the the garage, kitchen and bathrooms and they did the whole house (about 1600 sq. ft of carpet) in 8 hours.

Came to give estimate for my flooring project. He installed carpet for my whole house. He gave great detail. He estimated by room and whole house. He also did the steps. He gave great advice. His men did an excellent job. Very friendly and considerate. Great work! He did go above and beyond! He came to my apartment to show my wife the different carpets on a Saturday morning.

Gary came out to give me an estimate and was about 15 minutes early! LOVE that! He was in and out in about 10 minutes and gave me an awesome price! He had immediate availability, which was a plus for me since I was moving out and needed new carpet in ASAP. I set up the appointment and the installers came on time - Were very friendly and informative. They were finished in record time and did a GREAT job - They also fixed another section of carpet for us - I highly suggest you meet with Gary and have Magic Carpet come do your floors! I know I will be calling again soon for our new house!! Thank you!

Gary and crew removed old and replaced all carpet in our new home. We had a short timeline between contractors... He was very flexible and easily fit us into his schedule to support. We were very impressed with low cost for high quality carpet pad. Gary does his research and is able to track down best carpet from smaller markets saving lots of overhead associated with bigger store. He runs business out of his van and a small storage unit, again lowering overhead. Be patient and have a general idea of the mohawk color and type and he'll magically find it for you. We had no issues with removal, selection or install. Strongly recommend giving him a chance... I was nervous about no storefront, but he made it easy!

I am very pleased with Gary and Gary! They really listened to my needs and only brought out samples that fit what I was looking for. Their team came out and did a great job installing. It was also nice to see Gary out on the job site to ensure his team had everything they needed to complete the job. I highly recommend Magic Carpet!
