Minneapolis Carpet Installation

Besides the quality of the carpet you purchase, no other factor plays a bigger role in the longevity and function of your new carpeting than proper Minneapolis carpet installation. The days are past in Minneapolis-St. Paul when carpet installation only required a knee kicker and some muscle. Modern carpets, and the materials they're made of, necessitate the use of power stretchers and proper technique if you expect your new carpeting to last.

Hiring a Contractor If you're an experienced DIYer, don't rule out carpet installation as a potential weekend project as long as you can procure the right tools and are willing to do the research required to do the job right. For the rest of the homeowners in the Twin Cities, the question isn't whether it's possible to do it on your own, but how much it's going to cost to hire someone to do it for you. HomeAdvisor.com can help you out in that department, since we use post-project homeowner surveys to track project costs of jobs that start as contractor referrals in our system. Those surveys tell us that the average cost of a carpet installation in Minneapolis runs $1,385, though we have records of installations that ran upwards of $4,500, and others that cost as low as $300. Regardless of averages, highs, and lows, carpet quality and square footage (actually square yards, as measured in the carpet installation business), are the two most influential factors in determining your final cost. Contacting a professional carpet installer in the Twin Cities is the best way to figure out exactly how much your individual carpet installation is going to run.

DIY How much can a person save by doing it themselves? That's a tough question to answer, since the carpet you purchase, the size of the area you're carpeting, and the cost of renting tools that most homeowners don't keep in their garage play such a large role in determining how much your total project cost is going to be. Just to give you an idea of what to budget for, however, here's a list of common expenses. First and foremost, there's your carpet. Carpet can run anywhere from $10 to $100 per square yard, depending on the style and quality of the carpet you purchase, and don't forget to buy tackless strips and carpet underlayment while you're at it. As for tools, besides the basics (utility knife, measuring tape, work glove, chalk line, etc.), you'll also need some specialty items, like a power stretcher, knee kicker, seam iron, seam roller, seam cutter (see any common threads here?), and strip cutter, all of which you can rent at most equipment rental stores. Finally don't forget to figure in "hidden" expenses, such as ordering out for meals (you won't want to have to break to cook dinner with this job), and the gas required to get you from the carpet retailer to the equipment rental store to the hardware store, and back again.

Ways to Save Money Minneapolis carpet installation is rarely cheap. That being the case, homeowners in the Twin Cities are always on the lookout for ways to trim a little fat here and there. Here are some suggestions that could save you money if there's a carpet installation in your immediate future.

  • Purchase Carpet and Installation Separately—Carpet retailers don't always have the best deals when it comes to carpet installation prices (in fact, that's rarely the case). Often times you'll find that purchasing your carpet first, and then finding an independent carpet installation contractor to put it in for you, is the most economical way to go.

  • Shop Around For a Contractor—Whether you use a referral company like HomeAdvisor to find a list of contractors, or go some other route, resist the temptation to hire the first contractor you talk to. You won't just save money by collecting bids from several different businesses, and checking references, but you'll be able to weed out contractors with less than stellar track records, and ensure you're getting the best service possible as well.

    Good carpet installation in Minneapolis is the key to good looking carpet that you'll enjoy for years to come. Poor carpet installation is a good way to get familiar with the local carpet repairman just a few years down the road. Whether you DIY or seek out the services of a carpet installer in Minneapolis, this is one job where you want to do whatever it takes to get it done right.
