Carpet Price and Longevity Guide 2024


Here is a basic estimate about carpet cost. My Carpet Pricing Guide is designed to help you understand the current cost for New Residential Carpet based on it's grade or quality. 


No matter where you shop for new carpet, you need to know exactly what grade, type and style of carpet you need to buy. It's the only way for you to be sure you are happy with the end result. First you need to decide how long you want your new carpet to last, and what is your level of foot traffic in your home.


Start by taking my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to see what grade of carpet you need to select for your home based on your own unique needs and goals. Then you can determine about how much your new carpet is going to cost using the chart below. 


These figures are based on minimum manufacturing specifications and reflects the low-end of the pricing scale. If you modify carpet manufacturing specification values you also change the carpet cost and its potential lifespan. For example, the carpet fiber you select will affect the carpet cost. Nylon is the most durable synthetic fiber and the most costly. Polyester is the least costly fiber but not as durable. There are five basic carpet specifications you can change or manipulate to vary the lifespan of your carpet. Carpet Specifications


Take a look at my Carpet Durability Guide to help understand the relationship between carpet cost, durability and lifespan by changing or altering carpet manufacturing specifications to suit your needs, goals and budget.

How Long Does New Carpet Last?

If you want your carpet to last 20 years or longer, you will need to buy a higher quality carpet than if you only want your new carpet to last just 5 or 10 years. The fiber you select is the most critical factor when it comes to regulating carpet quality and longevity.


To use my Carpet Price vs. Longevity Chart, 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 minimum cost for Carpet for your level of foot traffic and lifespan.


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 square yard (or about $2.78 per square foot) for the right grade or quality of carpet you need. (providing you buy from a reputable carpet dealer)
