Carpet install and painting

Submitted by: piperpilot Sparta, MI USA (Friday, January 27, 2012)

About 900 sq.ft. needs old carpet ripped out and replaced with new carpet. Also painting done in four rooms. The total paint job is around 1200sq.ft.

Estimate: $1800 not including cost of carpet.

    I’m thinking about $6.50 a yard carpet isn’t measured by the foot 9 square feet = 1 square yard. Add another 3.50 a yard for carpet demo. Add another 1.00 a yard if it’s a concrete sub-floor (not plywood). Add maybe $35-$75 a room to move furniture. Add more if it’s got a pattern to match up in carpet. If you have steps to carpet add per step depending if it’s a box step, single side wrap, double wrap, has spindles, or a pie step. I’m not sure of the up charge for each step type simple box steps are maybe $10 and a floating pie step that wraps 2 sides with spindles is maybe $40 a step maybe more I’m not quite sure. I’m mostly a tile/ hardwood guy only 1.5 years of carpet installation and done floors 11 years.
