What's involved in a carpet installation?

A carpet installation expert should come and visit your home to take measurements before the installation (they may ask you for your home's floor plan instead). When the installation professional comes to install the carpeting, they should bring the underpadding, carpet, and all appropriate tools. Some homeowners choose to install the underpadding on their own to save money; however, one should always consult an expert about the product before making a purchase.

How much does an carpeting installation cost?

Carpeting is loved by homeowners and designers because it is an affordable and cozy alternative to its competitors. It's best to invest in a high-quality product. This ensures that your carpet will last a long time. High-quality products are more durable. They will remain comfortable throughout their lifetime. Here is a cost breakdown for this project:

  • Underpadding: $0.30/ft2
  • Underpadding installation fee: $0.50 - $1.00/ ft2
  • Polyester and nylon carpet: $1.00 - $3.00/ft2
  • Wool carpet: $5.00 - $9.00/ft2
  • Carpet installation fee: $1.15 - $2.00/ft2

Is this a DIY project?

It is very difficult to lay carpeting! If done incorrectly, the carpet will gather and bunch. This tends to happen over time. It isn't easy to avoid unless you have sufficient installation experience.

Carpet installers are experts at their craft, and they can install a product that will last through time (even as it stretches). You should definitely hire a well-seasoned and highly rated expert for a tricky space with cupboards and nooks throughout.

Additional tips

Get sufficient carpet samples before you choose a product and decide to redecorate. It's more difficult to match a carpet colour to a room style than matching a room style to a carpet.

Finally, choose your carpet texture based on the function of the room. Loop pile carpets are best for low-traffic rooms (because they get damaged easily). Cut pile carpets are better for high traffic areas.
