What You Need to Know
When it comes to carpet installation prices, there are several factors that a potential buyer needs to take into consideration: local labor costs, the carpet supplier, and the standard of quality. These are the factors that are most important to understand why carpet installation prices are what they are. Let's discuss each one.
Local Labor Costs
Labor costs tend to vary depending on where you live and the cost of living associated with that specific area, but this isn't nearly as important as other more important factors that contractors take into consideration which is the total square footage of the job and the amount of time it takes for a job to get completed. These two factors are what determine the labor portion of carpet installation prices. Other factors that are also important include delivery costs and disposal costs associated with getting rid of old carpet or flooring. Of course, you can save money by tearing out the carpet yourself if you like.
The Carpet Supplier
The size of the carpet supplier's operation will largely determine how much it will cost to have the carpet costs to have installed. If the supplier has a huge warehouse with many workers who help install the carpet, you'll notice a higher cost. However, if the supplier operates out of his truck with just a couple workers, you won't spend nearly as much.
Standard of Quality
Standard of quality really refers to the materials that a supplier uses in the carpet installation. Of course, much of the cost has to do with carpet prices, which involves many different materials that can or cannot be used and that have varying levels of quality. For example, there is a cost associated with padding which is the layer of cushion that is installed beneath the carpet to make it feel comfortable to walk on. This cushion isn't always installed though. There are other materials that may be added to carpet prices, which include adhesives, moisture barriers, stair nosings, and baseboards.
