Installing a new type of flooring in your house can be a daunting task. There are many choices to consider, but two of the most important things to consider are the costs of your flooring and the overall longevity that you expect your flooring to provide. Residential carpeting and commercial carpeting are a great way for a business or a family to save money on flooring costs without sacrificing quality and comfort. Cadillac Carpet & Flooring is here to help you understand the different costs associated with installing commercial carpet, residential carpet, and carpet tiles.
When looking at the costs for residential carpet, commercial carpet, and carpet tiles, you must first consider what level of traffic your floors will receive. This will help you choose an appropriate style that is capable of lasting. On average, carpet ranges from $3 to $7 per square foot. Higher quality carpets and fancy designs will cost you more. For the sake of finding the median, an average square foot of standard carpet will run you $4.50. Rugs and carpet tiles vary in price depending on how large of an area you need to cover. However, unlike traditional whole room carpet, carpet tiles and rugs offer unprecedented versatility.
When deciding on residential carpeting and commercial carpeting, choose a style, color, and texture that work best for you. Once you have decided on those features, it is time to look at your price point. Entry level carpet brands could cost around $1.50 to $5 per square foot, mid-range brands will cost around $2.50 to %10, while high-end brands can cost as high as $25 per square foot. There are major differences between the levels, but we recommend that you look into a brand that can cater to your needs.
Most residential carpeting and commercial carpeting is made of nylon. This material is durable and somewhat resistant to stains. The cheapest carpet material is Polypropylene. This material is stain resistant, but susceptible to wear and tear and is best suited to low traffic areas.
The most common styles for residential and commercial carpet are textured, loop, frieze, and patterned. The various styles cater to different price points and have varying levels of longevity.
How Much Carpet to Buy
When purchasing commercial carpet, residential carpet, and carpet tiles, you must calculate the square footage of a room. Simply multiply the length and width of a room. Whatever number you come up with, you should purchase enough carpet to cover that total with a 5 percent buffer. This will allow for trimming and any potential mistakes. No one is perfect and one of the worst mistakes you can make is to purchase too little carpet, forcing you to take another trip to the store and causing you a lot of unnecessary frustration.
A carpet installation service may be more expensive than doing it yourself, but it will provide you with peace of mind. On average, a carpet installation will cost you an additional $0.50 to $2 per square foot. This is a small price to pay to have a team of trained professionals install your carpet the right way the first time. No headaches, just a beautiful brand new floor.
