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.

Edgar & his team did an amazing job installing our new hardwood flooring. They pulled up old flooring and installed new very efficiently and the floors look beautiful. They cleaned up after themselves, leaving only their beautiful workmanship behind. We are hiring him again to do flooring in another room. Highly recommend

Otto’s Hardwood Floors is such a great company. José took the time to come out and give a free estimate for the work to be done, repaired part of my floor for free, and finished the work early. He was courteous enough to take the time to answer all of my questions throughout the process. The work he and his team did was fantastic and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. Our floors were in pretty rough shape and had not be treated in many years as the top clear coat was non existent, there was water damage, and had other problem areas that floors of almost 70 years would have. We will definitely hire again and would highly recommend to anyone needed their floors refinished.

Josh was fantastic to work with and was more than willing to tackle our small project. They walked us through the entire process, who to buy our flooring materials from, what to buy, and the bill was itemized and we knew exactly what each cost was. Our floor is just gorgeous!! We will be using Kingdom Flooring for other projects in the future. Thank you!

John did an incredible job on our vinyl flooring. He was timely and completed our job within a very tight time frame and even did 2 extra rooms after we saw how beautiful the floors looked. He was neat and cleaned up after himself each day. His price was reasonable and a good value. John was very personable and worked with us to pick out the right flooring and the accessories needed to complete the project. The response of people has been great as we covered older hardwood floors with vinyl plank. It made a huge transformation in the appearance of the house! I would recommend John for any flooring job as I think you will find him great to work with on your project

Viktoria LLC, they were fantastic! They responded immediately, were so kind, and informative. They leveled our floors and did a beautiful job installing and finishing our cork flooring. The cork flooring did not come with the bull-nosing going in the direction we wanted the grain to flow through our house so they were clever enough to find a solution we are very happy with. We could not be happier with the end result.

Working with clean cut flooring was excellent. Nick came and gave me a very fair estimate. I was very impressed by Nick and his team attention for little details and great communication during the project . He went above and beyond to make sure I was completely happy with the installation. I highly recommend this company for your flooring needs. I definitely will use them for my next flooring projects.

If you're looking for a professional to refinish your hardwood floors that is excited about their trade, responsive to their customer's needs and time, does quality work and has great communication skills then look no further than New Concepts Hardwood Floors. My wife and I are flipping her mother's house. The original plan was to do everything ourselves including refinishing the 65 yr. old abused hardwood floors. As with most projects the timeline was getting longer and longer. I was seeing another 3 full weekends of work to do the floors myself so the research into finding a trustworthy, reliable and affordable company to refinish the floors began. I chose New Concepts because of the reviews, the very quick initial response and after meeting the owner, Tim. The knowledge, passion and experience Tim expressed made the decision easy. I definitely knew he truly cared about his craft and his customers. Tim and his team truly exceeded our expectations on quality, time and service. The only drawback is I'm finding it hard to get the rest of the work in the house done because I can't stop staring at the awesome beautiful floors we now have.

These guys did an AMAZING job rescuing the wood floors in my new (old) house that I bought a few months ago. The floors were in really bad shape, but Francisco was extremely helpful and informative in laying out my options. He gave me his honest opinions but let me make the final decisions; he wasn't pushy about anything. And the results surpassed my expectations! Francisco even made a before-and-after video, and the results speak for themselves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZJhJV6Mm_o Will definitely hire again for my next flooring project!

We were very happy with LeviArs’ work on our home refinishing and installing hardwood flooring. They worked through Seattle’s “Snowpocalypse” driving on icy roads to our house when others might have stayed home. They accommodated all of our requests and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. They were the most competitively priced too. Our floors look amazing and we couldn’t be happier. We’d highly recommend LeviArs to anyone!

I hired Ultimate Flooring for a luxury vinyl plank installation (SmartCore brand from Lowe's). My house is about 900 sq ft. Vlad and his crew were on time and did the job with a quality of workmanship that I could not have done myself. Including removing an old kitchen floor to get everything down to the same flat level. I also like their easy-to-use online payment service. A great experience and awesome work.

I had a kind of complicated logistics situation moving into my new house and needing the floors done on a tight timeline. Josh was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. He went way above and beyond to help me get the job done within the time frame I really needed it completed, effectively communicated every step of the way, and did a beautiful job refinishing what were once some very old, beat-up looking floors. All the costs were perfectly clear and laid out ahead of time with no surprises. He even helped me with a separate small house repair just because he is a super nice guy. I would absolutely recommend Kingdom Flooring on every metric: quality of work, professionalism, integrity, and efficiency.

We were super happy with our decision to have Edgar refinish the hardwoods in our new house before we moved in. Our closing date changed more than once and I had to reschedule him and he was very patient and professional about the changes. The floors turned out beautiful and we are excited to start moving in tomorrow! I can not recommend Edgar highly enough. We will definitely be sharing his name with our friends and family when they need their floors refinished. Thank you, Edgar!!
