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.

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.

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.

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.

Hire Noor flooring for your project - you will not be disappointed!

Hardwood Floor Therapy re-finished 650 SF of oak flooring in my 1956 house. They were on time and professional, and the floors look absolutely amazing. They look like brand new floors. I had a few missing floor trim sections where old heaters had been removed, and Hardwood Floor Therapy replaced them at no charge just to help me out. I will definitely work with them again.

What an exceptional group of craftsmen. My home is over 100 years old and the fir floors had been badly refinished when I bought the home. These guys fixed a terrible prior sanding job, patched flooring from previous floor ducts and replaced worn out or broken boards. They also fixed most of the squeaks by glueing and screwing nails into the sub floor. Outstanding floor guys. Highly recommended.

Nick and his team were great. They refinished our 104 year-old white oak floors and installed new white oak flooring in our kitchen. They did a super job at matching and feathering new floor boards with the older floor to where you can barely tell the difference without a sharp eye.

This was the first time we’ve had our floors professionally done and it was such a flawless experience for us. Ultimate flooring was quick to add us to the schedule and was able to finish our entire downstairs floor (approximately 920sqft - including the kitchen, bathroom, living room, office, and under stairs with crawl space) in just two days! Not only are we impressed with the quality of their work, but the effectiveness they displayed on the time estimate they had given us. The experience with Ultimate Flooring encompasses everything we wanted in a new floor installation. Friendly, fast, quality, affordability. 10/10 would highly recommend Ultimate Flooring to anyone looking into getting their floors a new touch!

Andrey and his team are fantastic. My husband and I bought a condo and weren't sure when we would get the keys and be able to put the floors in. Andrey was so accomadating and assured me that he would get the floors done on whatever day we needed. He totally deliverd on his promise. I've never worked with a company that was so nice and so accomadating. On top of that, the floors look fantastic! I would hire Navy Flooring again in a heartbeat and will recommend them to anyone looking to get their floors done. A+!

I reached out to Viktoria Flooring and they were able to install laminate flooring on short notice. The crew was kind, easy communication and offered clear instructions on what they needed to complete the work. If I need any laminate flooring or baseboards installed in the future, I will reach out to them.

Hardwood floor refinishing is an ordeal. Particularly when you are refinishing for floors in a home you are currently living in. We weren’t originally planning on refinishing our entire home, but you know how remodels open Pandora’s box. Our original plan was to refinish old floors after we moved walls around on our 2nd floor and match our downstairs floors. We transitioned to ripping out our upstairs and stairs, and refinishing our downstairs floors. To explain, we had old fir floors on our stairs and through top floor that were in rough shape, and our main floor had newer white oak floors. Everything was quite worn, but after discussing our plans we realized the two materials didn’t have the potential to match regardless of stain color. While it changed our planned spending amount, the final outcome exceeded our expectations. Edgar was as professional as they come. He was attentive. Worked with us on our budget. Executed on all his promises and went above and beyond across the board. He provided his professional judgement to help guide us to create the floors we really wanted. He took time to fix any creaking boards. He also surprised us and custom trimmed some boards to accommodate some old boards we had (in an usual width) to blend nicely with our new install. He also guided us on the best stains/top coat to sustain living with two big dogs. In the end we are thrilled with his work, our new floors and the overall experience. Highly, highly recommend Edgar for any of your flooring or refinishing needs!

Paul and his team swooped in to save me from cold nights on the 1st floor. The house is a new build and the developed left the first floor raw with concrete. With Paul, I was able to select near matching LVT flooring to match the rest of the house. His crew was immediately available, professional, cleaned as they went, super diligent in the delivery of the floors (even under bath sink and under the stairs closet). This was all done in a couple days.

They were punctual, professional, and most importantly very skillful; with full attention to detail. Thank you Edgar!
