Houston Carpet Installation

Houston is one of the largest cities — not only in Texas — but in the United States. The city itself has a population of over 2 million people, and there are over 6 million people living in the metropolitan area. Houston is also one of the most varied cities when it comes to architectural styles. Styles vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, but most consist of one- and two-story single family homes. With the big construction boom of the late 1990s to early 2000s, several high-rise buildings filled with luxurious condos went up. While Houston is a city of opportunity, part of its attractiveness lies in the climate as well. Lows in the winter rarely reach below 46 degrees Fahrenheit, and highs in the summer often stay within the 90s.

Homeowners in Houston can breathe new life into their homes as well as increase their value by installing new carpet throughout. Hiring experienced installers is a wise choice because they can help determine which type of carpet will work best for the home. Additionally, they have the knowledge and tools to get the job done quickly.

Local Carpet Installation Project Costs

Homeowners in the Houston area who plan to install new carpet in their homes should carefully choose an installer. Shopping around for price quotes can help them get an idea of how much it will cost. Several factors dictate how much the total project will cost, including installation, the type of carpet, and additional materials. On average, homeowners can expect to spend a total of $1,200 to $1,400 for installation in a 250-square foot space.

Carpet Installation Costs

When it comes to carpet installation, the costs vary considerably. Every aspect of the job affects the price. The base price for labor is $3 to $6 per square yard, on average. However, the cost is closer to $9 to $12 per square yard when all of the other services are factored in. The table below illustrates some of the common services for carpet installation and their additional charges.

Carpet Installation Service

Average Cost

Berber carpet installation

$3 per square yard

Removal and disposal of old flooring

$2-$4 per square yard

Subflooring repair

$70 per hour

Moving furniture

$2 per square yard

Rooms that are not a standard square or rectangle shape may also incur additional fees because of the tools and labor required to cut the material to the unique shapes.

Carpet Costs

The cost of the carpet is perhaps the most expensive part of the installation. The prices for carpeting range considerably. However, when shopping, homeowners should decide how long they need the carpet to last. Those who only plan to stay in the home for 10 years do not need carpeting designed to last 20 years. Homeowners must also consider how much traffic the floor is exposed to. The table below illustrates how the quality of the carpet affects its price per square yard.


5 years

10 years

15 years

20 years
















While the table shows prices ranging from $15 to $45 per square yard, most homeowners typically spend about $30 to $40 per square yard for the carpet. This does not include padding, which adds another $3.50 to $5.50 per square yard. When purchasing carpet, homeowners should purchase more than the measured square footage. Waste overage is expected when installing to fit the exact specifications of the room.

Many manufacturers also often include a warranty with the product. Warranties usually protect against abrasions and stains to make investing a little bit more worth the money.

Licensing, Qualifications, and Insurance Information

In the State of Texas, contractors are not required to obtain a license unless they are specialty contractors. Carpet installation does not fall into one of these specialties. However, a license does not guarantee quality work. Instead homeowners should research the experience and qualifications of the installer before hiring them for the job. It is a wise choice to hire a contractor who carries general liability insurance because this will protect the property in case of damage.

Other Projects to Consider When Installing Carpet

When installing new carpet as part of a renovation project for a home, consider updating the baseboards and moldings. Over time, these can wear out as well, so updating them can brighten up the home and give it a fresh look. The project is relatively inexpensive, and only increases the total project cost by an average of $250. Additionally, homeowners should consider replacing floor coverings in kitchens or bathrooms to complement the newly carpeted areas of the house.

Houston Neighborhoods and Suburbs

In addition to being one of the largest cities in the country, Houston is also one of the most diverse. Housing options range from small bungalows to high-rise apartments and condos to enormous mansions on the outskirts of the city. It is also one of the fastest growing areas in the country, with as many as 27,000 single-family home permits issued in a single year. There are dozens of neighborhoods offering homes to buy or space to build, but some stand out among the rest.

  • Some of the oldest neighborhoods in the city include the historic Fifth Ward, the Greater Third Ward, and Midtown. These neighborhoods have a thriving historic district with art and antique dealers as well as boutiques. Additionally, River Oaks is one of the oldest and most exclusive neighborhoods in Houston, featuring luxurious homes dating back to the 1920s.
  • The Woodlands is a planned community that started as a Houston suburb and has grown to be a metropolis all its own. The main feature of this area is the 28,000 acres of lush forest that surround the area. Housing options range from urban lofts to family homes to grand estates.
  • In the southwest area of Houston is the Sharpstown neighborhood. The area has a lower average income than other parts of Houston, and many of the homes date back to the 1950s. Despite its rough reputation, Sharpstown made a comeback and evolved into one of the more appealing neighborhoods in the area.
  • Bellaire is Houston's original suburb. It was founded in 1908, and has a quiet small-town feel. It is just a hop, skip, and jump away from all of the entertainment and excitement of the city. Bellaire offers quiet residential neighborhoods with libraries, parks, and top-rated schools.

Whether purchasing a home or renovating a home, the costs of carpet installation can vary depending on the neighborhood and the type of home. For example, new carpet in a large home in the Woodlands would cost considerably more than in a downtown loft because of the size. Additionally, historic homes may require renovation or repair to the floor before installing carpeting, thus increasing the cost.
