Ideas & Inspiration from Atlanta Flooring & Carpet Contractors

Atlanta Carpet Installation

Atlanta is one of the largest cities in the southeastern United States. There are more than five million people living in the city and the surrounding metropolitan areas. Though winters are mild, it is not uncommon for summer days to reach a humid 90 degrees. In either season, you want a home that is comfortable from top to bottom, starting with the carpet.

Shopping for new floor coverings in Atlanta can be an overwhelming process in and of itself. Finding someone qualified to install carpet is an equally difficult task. However, having experienced professionals install the carpet ensures excellent results. They possess the tools and skills that most homeowners do not have to get the project done on time with high-quality results. By comparing the differences in homes in various neighborhoods and suburbs around Atlanta and evaluating the costs associated with carpet installation, homeowners can estimate how much the projects will cost for their homes.

Atlanta Neighborhood and Area Information

In addition to the city of Atlanta, its suburbs are some of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Homes range from new construction in the suburbs to historic homes in the older parts of the city. Carpet installation services and costs vary depending on the part of the city in which the homeowner requires service.

  • Old Fourth Ward is one of the oldest and most well known neighborhoods in the city. This neighborhood dates back to the post-Civil War era. A fire in 1917 left a large part of the neighborhood in ruins, but ambitious renovators brought new life to the area at the beginning of the 1980s. When installing carpet in the Old Fourth Ward, homeowners can expect to pay additional costs for floor preparation as well as disposal of old floor covering.
  • On the eastern side of the city lie Ormewood Park and Glenwood Park. These areas of town have a mix of 1920s style brick bungalows, new single-family homes, and high-rise condos and apartments.
  • Located right in the center of Atlanta is Midtown. The buildings and homes in the area are as diverse as the people who live there. Midtown is the area of town that hosts many events and parades. Additionally, it attracts students, artists, professionals, and families alike. It is home to Georgia Tech, the Savannah College of Art and Design, and the iconic Piedmont Park.
  • Just north of Atlanta is its most popular suburb: Alpharetta. It has some of the most highly sought after real estate in the area, meaning that there is a lot of new construction. Homeowners can save on carpet installation by having the entire home done at once prior to moving in. Additionally, they do not have to worry about disposal of old floor coverings in a new home.
  • Lawrenceville is also located north of Atlanta and highlights a large selection of affordable homes. Home buyers get more square footage for their money, which is why it is popular for families with children. Lawrenceville also boasts some of the best schools in the area.

The size of the home affects the overall cost of carpet installation. The higher the square footage of carpeted area, the higher the cost will be. While the average per-square-foot or hourly installation cost is relatively the same in all areas of Atlanta, the overall cost will be higher in the larger homes of Alpharetta than in the smaller homes of Glenwood Park. Additionally, older homes that require renovations may warrant higher costs if the subfloor needs to be repaired or replaced prior to installing new carpet.

Carpet Installation Project Costs

In general, Atlanta homeowners can expect to pay $9 to $12 per yard for carpet installation. This figure covers labor for installation of the new carpet as well as removal and disposal of the old carpet. This figure does not include the cost of carpet and other materials necessary for installation. When considering the cost of labor and materials, the total cost of installing carpet in a 250-square-foot space is $1,200 to $1,400.

Licensing and Insurance Requirements

When selecting carpet installers in Atlanta, it is important to verify their expertise and qualifications. In the state of Georgia, those completing projects that exceed $2,500 must hold a general contractor's license. Licenses are available through the State Construction Industry Licensing Board. In order to obtain the license, the contractor must pass an exam as well as show proof of bond and insurance. This is especially important when the carpet installers must move furniture from room to room, and the risk of property damage is greater.

Other Projects to Consider When Installing Carpet

When replacing the carpet, there are a few other projects that homeowners should consider completing at the same time. First, homeowners should consider replacing the baseboards and other trim or molding in the room. If these are in poor condition, they can affect the appearance of the plush new carpet. New molding can truly make the carpet stand out. Additionally, homeowners should consider updating the floor coverings in other rooms of the house, such as the kitchen or bathroom, so that the floors in the entire home have a fresh, new, unified appearance.
