If I already have a carpet and underpad I want installed how much would just the installation cost per sqft?

Also, if I have a straight, half enclosed carpeted staircase how much would it cost, per step, to install new carpet on it? It has 11 steps and pickets.

The general going rate for installation is $1.50 - 2.00 per Sq.ft and $10.00 each stair. depending on your contractor and geographical location.

Hello Edward,

My name is Chantal & i'm the administrative assistant here at Dream Touch Renovations. In order to properly provide you with a price I will need you to elaborate a little more.

I would need the measurements of the areas you want carpeted. Once I receive the following information, I will be better equipped to answer your question.

I would say anything around 1$ is good. I tried Argos Carpets in Nepean and they told me that I could even do it myself
