You may be able to do it yourself for really cheap if your even slightly handy. It's not that expensive to get it done professionally. Especially if you only have two square rooms.

re: How much does it cost to put carpet in a house?


I almost had new carpet put into 3 of my bedrooms but held off. The cheapest carpets probably run around $2.50 per sq ft and the padding cost about $.50 per sq ft IRCC. Most places sell it by the sq yd.

Installation is usually cheap if you buy it from a place like home depot. I think they will do everyroom in a house for like 130 or individual rooms for 40 depending on the carpet purchased.

Labor only?

Do yourself a favor, look for carpet in the 13' widths. Then all they have to do is cut, no seems.

I paid about 10k for my 3000sf house. My house is all shag carpets now, it's pretty sweet.

If you get 13', you'll need 37.5 yds.

X-LSU player, Lionel Turner's uncle does carpet for me. Let me know if you need someone good.

12' widths are standard and that's what you need. Based off of $25/sy allowance and a little waste, you're looking at $950 or so.

Home Depot is running a special, $39 dollars for installation when you buy certain types of carpet. I just paid $1939.00 for three bedrooms, 14 x 12, 12x 12 and 15 x 12. Don't let them charge you to remove the carpet. $0.39 sq ft. It is too easy to take out on your own and Garbage men will pick it up.
