What is the average cost for builder grade carpet and installation?
There really is no such thing as "builder grade " carpet. The closest definition would be low cost carpet. When buying carpet the general rule is the more it costs the better the carpet. The cost for installation is a bit trickier because installation prices can vary widely from area to area and also depends on what the installer will be doing ie; wood floor or concrete, a lot of seams, hiring a helper, etc. Unlike buying carpet paying more doesn't necessarily mean a better installation. So, the answer to your question in my opinion and in my area of the country would be about $9 per square yard for carpet and installation (not including padding). But at those prices I honestly wouldn't expect much.

It depends on the level of service being provided. For newconstruction no furniture to move or old flooring to remove, pricesin the Northeast are approximately 65 cents per sq…uare foot. Forreplacing residential carpet where the installers are movingfurniture and ripping up old carpet prices are approximately $1.00a square foot. If you are considering purchasing the highestquality carpet, plan to budget for at least $4.50 to $5.50 persquare foot. Prices may vary throughout the country and in othercountries. Also the brand of carpet and store that is selling thecertain carpet will change the price, most likely.
plan on a range of about .50 cents per foot for something decent up to $1 per feet for the premium stuff with all the bells & whistles
About $5 per square yard. Been doing it 45 years.
What is the average labor cost for carpet installation And What is the avg mark up on materials for a contractor?
Average would be $5/ sq yd. Although prices would very depending on Geographics, and type of carpet. This price is just to install pad and carpet. Removing old carpet would be… extra, and stairs etc would be extra. As far as the mark-up that would depend on a lot of things. The easiest would be to figure out your overhead including everything for the job that will be an expense (cost of materials, shipping, fuel etc.) and figure the profit you want, or play with some percentages until it is worth the effort on your part for the job.
$1550 uninstalled with pad, $2025 installed with pad
About $2 per sq ft.
It is about $350 at Anderco Carpet.
How much a foot for carpet Mark Twain said that "One foot on fire & one foot on ice & on AVERAGE your pretty comfortable" I share his view that average is a pretty illusion…ary tool when it comes to being really useful. There is no one price, & no one quality, could be junk for about a buck a sq ft or premium stuff for $6-10 or more a foot. Here's a good rule of thumb, assuming you shop for value and don't over pay.. Expect 5 years of good service for every $1 you spend on carpet, (not pad or labor) per foot. $1 buck/ sq /ft=
How much a foot for commercial carpet Mark Twain said that "One foot on fire & one foot on ice & on AVERAGE your pretty comfortable" I share his view that average is a prett…y illusionary tool when it comes to being really useful. Commercial is a very vague term & can mean a lot of different looks & uses, so this is the generic, general purpose answer Nylon & Level loop lasts a long time, Nylon cut pile smooth not so much Polypropylene carpet is very stain resistant & cheaper than nylon but doesnt keep its looks as long... There is no one price, & no one quality, could be junk for about a buck a sq ft or premium stuff for $6-10 or more a foot. Here's a good rule of thumb, assuming you shop for value and don't over pay.. Expect 3 years of good service for every $1 you spend on carpet, (not pad or labor) per foot. $1 buck/ sq /ft=
A $25 a yard carpet = $2.77 per sq ft. 25 / 9 = 2.77
20 to $25 per yard.
This question has no definite answer. Some suppliers quote it as an installed price already included. The price on the padding itself may vary with thickness and variety - rou…ghly $.50 per sq/ft. for a basic thinner pad to $1.00 per sq/ft. on a thicker and more durable material. It may be sold by the roll with so many square feet in the roll or not depending on your installer or supplier. You usually use no more than 1/2" pad with cut pile carpet and recommend 7/16" or less for berber or low pile carpets. Synthetic padding is best for berbers or loop piles. This type of padding has less bounce but will out perform foam padding in this application.

The cost of Carpeting varies on the type of carpeting and company you get the carpeting from.
A zillion variables here, big building or small, warehouse or showroom or stocking dealer or sample store. Start up or mature, big market or small rural store, lease or own. M…ost of us look at occupancy as a % of sales and in a start up, it could be huge but in a mature store we see the range from about 6% on the low to 9% on the way high as a % of total sales, (like it would appear on a standard P&L. As an aside we often look at advertising + Occupancy as a combined number, Lower occupancy/Rent Higher Rent, better visibility & lower advertising, but combined they often average about 12%+ of sales Hope that helps
It varies greatly from product to product and from market to market. The best way to get an answer is to put an ad on Craigslist telling what you want installed, the more …detail you can give the better the quote will be... ie.. "3/4 inch, unfinished oak hardwood over wood subfloor, new construction, 400 sq feet, need it done this week, paying cash.". . The lesson here is that the more detail you put in the ad, the better the quote.. You will have to understand that not every installer has Golden Hands, some are thieves & butchers, so you may not always want the low bidder..
The average cost to purchase a carpet cleaning machine will run about $400.
These prices can vary as a function of desired type, surface, finishing, color, installation costs and possible other service fees. It's pretty hard to give an quotation strai…ght away, as each project is unique in its own.
