How Much Should You Spend on New Carpet?

By Alan Fletcher - 30-Year Carpet Expert and Consumer Advocate

 

 

First, take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to see what grade of carpet you need to buy for your home.

 

Foot Traffic

In a Heavy Foot Traffic applications you must buy a higher grade of carpet than if you have a low or medium traffic application. 

 

Higher grades of carpet are made with better materials and are designed to tolerate more wear and tear. But the more durable the carpet is... The more it's going to cost you!

 

Life Span

If you want your carpet to last 20 years, you will need to buy a higher quality carpet than if you only want your new carpet to last just 5 or 10 years. Again, the higher the quality the longer your new carpet is going to last, and the more it's going to cost you. 

 

To use my Carpet & Pad Price Chart below, simply cross reference your Level of Foot Traffic with the Number of Years you want your New Carpet to Last. The corresponding number you find is the approximate COST for Carpet & Padding that is designed meet your needs and goals. 

 

For example, if you have MEDIUM Foot Traffic and you want your carpet to Last 10 Years  you should expect to pay about $25 per yard for the right grade or quality of carpet. (providing you buy from a reputable carpet dealer)
