Local Cost Information for Carpet Installation

Square Footage

For carpet installation, the amount of square footage will determine the overall project cost. You'll pay more per square foot for a smaller area than you will for a large, open one. This is because:

  • It's more challenging to install in tighter spaces.
  • There's also a greater chance of unintentional material damage when you work in close quarters.

Understand that large room installations might require expensive specialty tools to cover a larger space quickly.  The average consumer in the greater Cleveland, Ohio, area will spend just under $800 for a carpet installation. Some people spend as little as $150, while others splurge by paying as much as $1,500.

Materials

First consider how long you want your carpet to last. The least expensive materials can last as little as a year, which does serve a purpose. If you're not sure you'll stay in your home for long, it doesn't make sense to splurge on carpet. You can save a third of your budget by paying just over $500 for your install without compromising on your flooring needs.

Conversely, the best carpeting can last 25 years, which is almost the length of the average mortgage. By paying more for materials now, you'll assure yourself fewer carpet worries. Even a higher end carpet only boosts the total cost of the project by about $500. If you have the money, it's a worthwhile consideration.

Here are some popular carpet fibers and their price ranges:

  • Olefin: the cheapest solution with the shortest lifespan. You can buy it for as little as a dollar per square foot.
  • Polyester: the second cheapest solution. Its lifespan isn't great, but it's better than olefin and typically costs $1.50 per square foot.
  • Nylon: a high-quality fiber that delivers a nice appearance with a long lifespan. It costs $3 per square foot and looks great.
  • Wool: the finest fiber possible if money's no object. At $9 per square foot, it's exponentially more expensive than olefin as well as nylon. You get what you pay for with wool, though. It'll last decades and look plush throughout its lifespan.

Padding

Several factors determine carpet cost. Other than type and quality, you'll need to decide if you want carpet padding. Like the carpet itself, padding comes in many styles, and the price range fluctuates greatly. You might start by getting quotes that include padding in the total cost. That way, you'll know the maximum potential financial outlay and can cut costs if you don't want padding. Note that some installers will not quote a price until they inspect the designated installation area. Padding concerns are a key reason for this.

Pros and Cons of Carpet vs. Other Types of Flooring

Tile Flooring

Some experts argue that tile is a better flooring choice than carpet. They consider the difference in pricing to be negligible relative to the benefits. While the cost of tile varies greatly depending on the type, you'd be hard-pressed to find a ceramic tile option for less than $800. Tile flooring is inexpensive in small spaces but much costlier if you install it across your home. Consider the average cost variance depending on installation size:

  • Less than 200 square feet costs $1,174.
  • 200-1,000 square feet costs $2,914.
  • More than 1,000 square feet costs $6,970.

While tile looks nice and clean, carpeting remains the most cost-effective flooring. If you're still on the fence, debate whether you would rather live with scuffed tile or stained carpet. Both are likely to occur over time. The primary advantage of tiling is its lifespan, which can double even that of the best carpet if maintained properly. Of course, if you prefer to redesign your home from time to time, the long lifespan isn't necessarily a positive.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is another option, but it's likely to cost more than carpet. The national average cost for hardwood installation is $4,435. In the greater Cleveland area, it's slightly lower at $4,100. Still, the cheapest type of wood flooring you can add to your home will still cost at least $2,533 and could cost as much as $5,666. Wood has the same wear and tear issues as tile but hides damage better. Your floor simply becomes more rustic looking as it ages.

Local Licensing and Qualifications

As you consider potential contractors for your install, research the area's licensing and qualifications parameters. The state of Ohio is particularly puzzling in this regard. People without proper licensing can legally perform tasks that ordinarily require certification. This is because the Ohio Construction Industry Licensing Board doesn't license residential contractors or general contractors.

So, since the state of Ohio doesn't do it for you, be sure to:

  • Verify the qualifications of all potential installers.
  • Take the extra time to view a potential installation company's ratings & reviews.
  • Pay particular attention to complaints about code compliance, as those are the ones that can cost you thousands of dollars long after the work is done.
  • Note the list of Requirements and Regulations on the Ohio Small Business Development Center page. Make sure you're hiring an installer who understands the rules with regard to carpet and floor covering sales and installation.
  • Ask for certifications if you're debating between multiple bids. These extra qualifications provide peace of mind.

Other Projects to Consider When Having Carpet Installed

Carpet installation might be great opportunity to make other changes in your home. Use this project as an excuse to do a quick renovation. Let the rooms where you're adding new carpet determine what other projects you tackle. For example, if you are placing carpet beside the kitchen, consider adding new tile or a backsplash to your cooking area. You might even alter the lighting in the rooms to accentuate the new carpet's color. You might also redo your cabinets to match these other changes.

On the other hand, if the carpet is going in the master bedroom, you might update the tile in your master bathroom and possibly even update your sinks, shower and bath. Rather than tackling one project at a time for years on end, do a complete remodel in a short period.
