Average Cost to Install Carpet

The cost of carpet installation is usually measured in dollars per square foot. The average cost currently sits around $2 to $5 per square foot. The cost can rise or drop depending on the size and shape of the room with more intricately-shaped rooms requiring a bit more bespoke work. On the other hand, a room with a simple box shape is typically much easier to install carpet into, making it a little cheaper.

Extra Labor Costs

The costs also depend on the existing carpet and the style of carpet you wish to install. Expensive carpet styles will cost more per square foot and if there’s a lot of labor involved (such as moving out furniture or ripping out existing carpets) then you can expect the price to continue rising based on the amount of work required.

Additional Features

Carpets also have additional options that will increase the average cost per square foot. For instance, water-repellant carpets can add an additional $1-2 per square foot and antimicrobial properties can increase the cost by anywhere from $4 to $12.

Materials Matter

Material costs can also have a drastic effect on the average cost of your carpet installation. Cotton carpets are generally the most expensive, followed by acrylic and wool. The most affordable styles of carpet are nylon, polyester and olefin, all costing an average of under $1 per square foot.

The average of $2 to $5 per square foot is fairly reliable and a good way to estimate the costs of installing carpet in your rooms. However, this value can increase depending on the type of carpet you want to install and the circumstances, so please get in touch with us with your requirements and we’ll be able to deliver a more accurate quote.

Average Cost to Install Laminate

Laminate flooring is a cost-effective and versatile way to ensure that you get a great look at a fantastic price. It’s durable, scratch and waterresistant and can be engineered to give a wide range of realistic appearances. And because it is relatively quick and easy to install, it usually results in some significant labor cost savings, too. 

But what will it cost you to install laminate flooring in your home? Your mileage may differ depending on where you live, where you buy from, the type of laminate flooring and the size of your home. However, on average you can expect to pay…

Per Square Foot

The average cost of installing laminate flooring in the US is between $3 and $8 per square foot. This is a complete cost, inclusive of labor and materials. The laminate flooring itself varied between $0.68 and $2.59 per square foot.

On average per floor

Again, this number can vary greatly depending on the size of the floor and the quality of materials. The average cost of installing laminate flooring ranges from $1,411 at the low end to $3,395 at the upper end.

This results in a national average of $2,352.

Additional costs?

Additional costs may apply if subfloor prep is required or if additional features such as baseboards or molding are needed. If the flooring has a specific pattern, this may also incur additional labor costs.

Average Cost to Install Hardwood

If you’re looking for a floor that feels amazing underfoot and looks fantastic in any design concept, it simply has to be hardwood flooring. While not the cheapest form of flooring on the market, it is extremely hard wearing and comes available in a huge range of finishes for a seamless fit with your decor. It’s very low maintenance and will only look more lustrous as it ages. Broadly speaking, there are two kinds of hardwood- solid and engineered. Engineered hardwood is more durable and easy to install. However, solid hardwood is thicker and can be sanded down and refinished time after time.

But what will it cost you to install hardwood flooring in your home? The costs may differ depending on whether you opt for engineered or solid wood, where you live, where you buy from and the size/shape of the space.

Materials matter

The average cost of installing solid hardwood flooring in the US varies between $3 and $14 per square foot, for the materials and an additional $3-$5 per square foot for the installation. The biggest variation is in the cost of the wood itself which is lower for softer woods but much higher for cypress, mahogany or Brazillian walnut.

Engineered hardwood is more versatile and can be installed in bathrooms and basements etc. as it is more heat and water-resistant. You can expect to pay between $3 and $13 per square foot for engineered hardwood and this price usually depends on the quality and thickness of the visible upper layer.

Additional costs?

Additional costs may apply the space is an unusual shape or if the removal of furniture is required.

2019 Vinyl Flooring Installation Costs + Prices Per Square

Vinyl flooring is a great option for all kinds of homes. It is highly versatile giving a great look that fits a range of design aesthetics at a great price. It’s also highly cost-effective and durable enough to withstand heavy foot traffic. It can be cut to size and shape easily and because it is fairly quick and easy to install, you can expect pretty reasonable labor costs.

But what will it cost you to install vinyl flooring in your home? Contractors in your area may provide different quotes depending on where you live, where you buy from, the type of vinyl flooring you buy and the size of your home.

On average, however, you can expect to pay…

Prices Per Square Foot

The average cost of installing vinyl flooring in the US is anywhere between $2.50 and $5 per square foot. This is a complete cost, inclusive of labor and materials. Costs will vary depending on the size and shape of the room and whether you’re installing vinyl sheeting or vinyl tiles/planks.

On average per room

For a room measuring around 200 square feet you can expect to pay anywhere between $500-$1000. As you can see, this is a huge variation, with planks and tiles presenting greater labor costs due to their implementation being much more complicated in non-rectangular spaces.

Additional costs?

Additional costs may apply if subfloor prep is required or if additional features such as baseboards or molding are needed. You can reduce labor costs by ensuring that all furniture and previous flooring is removed before your contractors start.

Average Cost to Install Tile

Nothing says “classy” like an elegantly tiled floor. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms, tile is a hard-wearing, durable, cost-effective, water-resistant and even eco-friendly contributing to the air quality of the room. On average, you can expect tile floors to last around 20 years without the need for repairs.

Tile flooring also gives a wonderfully cool, smooth feel underfoot making it a great choice for those who live in hot states. And because tile is such a valuable and sought after material, it can even add to your home’s resale value.

Material Type Effect Cost

But how much does it cost, on average, to install tile flooring in your home? This amount can vary enormously depending on the raw materials used to create the tiles (ceramic/porcelain/stone) and the size and shape of the room in question.

On average, however, here’s what you can expect to pay…

Average cost per square foot

Average prices for floor tile installation in the US vary between $15 and $24 per square foot all-inclusive. This is divided between $5-$10 per square foot for the tile itself and $10 to $14 per square foot for the installation.

The average cost per room

To tile the floor of a 200 square foot room you can usually expect to pay between $3,000 and $5,000 all-inclusive. At the top end, homeowners have been known to spend anywhere up to $13,000 on tiling a 200-foot room with a lowerend price of around $2,700.
