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.

I’m so glad I had Dwell Installations install my vinyl plank flooring. They came in and went right to work. They were professional and very knowledgeable and did a great job. They got everything done in 1 day and cleaned up and hauled all the old flooring away. They were awesome and I would definitely recommend and use them again.

We can not thank Santana Construction enough! They came to install new linoleum in our master bathroom and ended up clearing up our project list! They were responsive, efficient and professional. Our bathroom floors are gorgeous! I sent a picture of what I like and they went above and beyond on the flooring they picked for us! I plan to use them on all of our future projects!

We had them install Lvp flooring in our house with baseboards. Stepan gave us a very fair bid on the project. Ivan did the install and worked his tail off. I would definitely hire them again.

Please be wary of this company. Please note they do not do their own work and they find outside installers to do the project. We had a terrible experience getting Pacific Floors to do our project after getting a bid, signing a contract and leaving half down as a deposit. We let another contractor go and cancelled several bids as we thought we were working with Pacific Floors. We had trouble with the price increasing, the start date getting pushed out and very unprofessional communication. They left us having to start over our whole process of finding a contractor. 1) The price kept going up. First rough estimate was 1052.84. When I mentioned the toilet and tub had to be removed/replaced the price went up to 1277, which was fine. Then an estimator came out and the price went up to 2144.29. Later they were going to charge me more because we had heating pads under our tile. None of the bids before Pacific Floor or the 4 bids after Pacific Floor said they couldn’t do the project had any issue with the heating pads. 2) Then the date kept changing. First I was told they could start in a day if I left my deposit, which I did. That would have been a Tuesday. Then when the contract came it said they would start Friday, July 30. Eventually it was going to be Sept 8. 3) Communication was very unprofessional. Contract was signed and deposit left on 7/26. On 7/26 I emailed to see what time they would arrive on Friday. They said they were meeting at 11:00 but it would probably be a 9:00. I did not hear back. The next day I emailed. No answer. Then I called and was told that they were trying to find a special certified installer because of the heating pads. Note again: No other bids had any issue with the heating pads re: extra cost or doing anything special to remove them. I was angry at this point as we had stopped all search for an installer assuming Pacific Floors was doing the job. Then I got an email saying they could not do our job on our timeline. We had a signed contract saying they would finish by august 2. He said it was not valid because he didn’t put my credit card through. I have all paperwork and emails to confirm this review. The only piece I am missing is the phone conversation when he kept saying they had to have a special installer to do the job right. I would not recommend Pacific Floor for anyone needing a tile project done.

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Vlad and his crew. They did an amazing job! Vlad was quick to respond, helpful with my questions and super professional and personable. Had the carpet and laminate replaced throughout my first floor and in one day! Would definately recommend Vlad and his crew and won't hesitate to call on them again for my next project.

Francisco came for bid a job on my floors that were previously ruined by another Floor guy by the name of ROBERT DRAKE AKA ROB. Rob burned our family badly by doing a Botch job and when he got paid acted like it was our fault and he could not help and than when asked to return to fix would not answer the phone and actually blocked us!! We were devastated at the job he left and thought there was no hope but Francisco came in and really helped us understand what he could do to help. He was very professional and knew his stuff!! I wish we would of gone with him first!! He told me exactly step by step what they would do how they could fix the mess that The previous guy left. I recommend Francisco and his team 100%! He will get the job done Fast and efficiently. We made a very costly mistake but glad to know we have people in this world that very much value their customers and their job.

Antonio was quick to respond to a last minute job installing some LVP in my kitchen. He was very punctual and when the job got MUCH more complicated by discovering extensive water damage that required complete subfloor replacement and structural stabilization of the floor, he handled it amazingly. I was more worried about how much longer the job was taking of his weekend than he did, he kept reassuring me everything would be fine. Thanks Antonio! You work is amazing! Will be calling soon for baseboard installation!

We estimated the job would take 3-4 days to complete and due to their high demand we expected to wait at least 3 wks. Then Stepan called to say that he had a two day opening. To our surprise and delight the job was completed in less than two days! Stepon and his father are highly skilled professionals with a strong work ethic. They went above and beyond what we had expected to insure the highest quality outcome. Their prices were fair, workmanship excellent and the men were prompt and courteous, asking if wished to modify anything throughout the process. We highly recommend Viktoria LLC and in fact we plan on hiring them again for additional flooring installations. Judy & Smokey

WORK OF ART, I WOULD HAVE GIVEN 10 STARS IF I COULD!!! We've lived in our new home only 6 months and really wanted to have the hardwood floors refinished. Concerned with price we put it off, but now I wish I wouldn't have waited so long. Francisco was able to offer options that fell right in line with our budget. The work was greater than we expected and we still cant get over how beautiful the end result is. Francisco's knowledge and readiness to explain every step as to what to expect helped us understand the process and set clear expectations. We had such a great experience with Francisco and Betty, his right hand gal, that when the job was done we hated to see them leave. If you want a custom woodworker who knows his craft, is respectful of your time, money and property and you want an A+++ job done...WORK OF ART IS THE ONLY CHOICE!!!
