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 have hired Petru with Elevate Hardwood Floor to install hardwood floor in a new room and to repair the floor in a second room. He provided outstanding services and I am beyond satisfied with his work because he was able to repair what was said to be irepairable by another company initially and everything went really well with spotless and great results. He has tremendous knowledge of the wood and flooring and he recommended us the best floor which we love it! I will strongly recommend his work to all of my friends who needs a professional and great quality hardwood floor.

Theo is the owner and flooring repair/install of L'Oswego Flooring. I was impressed with him from the first visit to the job. He was punctual, professional and a hard worker. We needed scratches removed and the floor refinished inside an apartment. Since the apartment was occupied, Theo worked with our timelines which included working over the weekend when the tenant was out of the apartment. We were very impressed with his work and the new look of the refinished floor. We would highly recommend him and will definitely call him again for our next flooring job!

My wife wanted a natural look to out slightly beat up 106 year old fir floors. After meeting a few floor refinish era that had less than adequate knowledge of finishes and wood, Petru showed up to bid and what a relief it was to meet someone who knew what he was talking about. We settled on a Swedish finish for our floors and he finished in two days. The floors are everything I had hoped for and more. The follow up was also great. I'll be recommending Elevate floors to anyone who asks.

It was a very great pleasure to work with Petru for my project. If you ever need a contractor for any type of work, especially hardwood floors, this is the guy you should hire. Very punctual, organized, no mess left behind, dust-free, honest and transparent in communication and giving us the details of the project before and during the process. He accomodated us and worked with our schedule. What more can you ask for from a contractor like him? I am giving him a 5 star review. I was never more satisfied and happy with the job and the look of our floors than ever before. I also have several other projects that I need a contractor for and I think you already know who I am hirring; that’s right, Petru with Elevate Hardwood Floor! You will never regret hirring him for your hardwood floor projects!

My floors had been trashed by tenants. There was major water damage in 2 places in the kitchen, heavy wear and water damage at front door and sliding door, and lots of damage from wheelchair treads. Except for the master suite (which is Spanish tile), I needed the entire rest of the house floors redone. I estimate about 1400 sf of floor. I tried to get 4 bids. One didn’t respond at all. Three gave me bids. One was $5660, one was $5200, and one was $13,500. I eliminated the $13k bid because that’s just dumb. The $5200 guy then ghosted me. So I ended up by default with the last bid, which was Viking Floors. Owner/operator is Brad Eller. Brad was very responsive to texts and email. I questioned him about 2 bad reviews on his site (among countless good reviews), and he was very open and honest about what happened on those 2 jobs. He accepted responsibility for his part and explained things to my satisfaction. After the main sanding was done, Brad put down 5-6 sample stains for me to choose one. The final product is really quite amazing, especially considering what the floors looked like before. The job ended up taking one day longer than expected. But the floors really look great. There were 2 small “dry spots” (missed sealant) but Brad fixed these. He blue-taped all the door frames to protect them. (Baseboards we’re already removed.) I would have appreciated his removing all this tape so I didn’t have to. But this is a small thing. There are before and after photos. The floor is a lovely chestnut brown. Some of the after photos show an orange tint because of the sun. Throughout this project, Brad kept me informed of progress daily. I am really pleased with everything and I can highly recommend Brad Eller and Viking Floors.
