Price to install carpet on stairs?


As a flooring rep for a major company "not a big box store" I really hate to hear these stories! I write estimates daily and I have never heard of such a rip off? In addition to the actual yardage, which we charge $2.60 per step for the standard waterfall step, and $5.50 for hollywood style. The most expensive type are full warp floating steps @ $10 per step. Other costs that can add to the labor would be wrapped stringers @ $.65 per lin ft, upholstered, capped, pie steps and landing figure $5 each. Spindles are $1.60 each. A birdcage step can run up to $26. The average job probably works out to under $50 for stairs, and the max might be $150-200 for a very complex stairway?

A simple answer is:

Waterfall: Continuous run of carpet, acroos the surface of a step, down the riser, across the surface of the next step, doen the riser, and so on.

Hollywood: Open stair requiring each individual stair to be wrapped, see-thru where a riser would otherwise be.

hi there, i actually own a carpet cleaning / install business. what you asked for in the first post would run a max of 400 in labor for all of it, stairs and rooms, possibly less. the $2000 quote is out of line for the industry, it's at most a half day job

Putting dates on these comments appears to be a waste of time.
