A carpet installation invoice is provided to a homeowner or property owner after the completion of a carpet installation for payment.
A carpet is a type of fiber used to semi-permanently go over a floor designed for comfort and/or design in residential and commercial buildings. Carpets come in various textures, styles, and colors. Depending on the type of fabric and the amount needed, an installation can be inexpensive or very costly. A floor typically needs carpeting when the sub-floor is not suitable for habitable conditions, such as a cement floor. Existing carpets tend to need re-installation when the edges start to unravel or if water damage (mold) is to occur. Most carpets need to be replaced after 5-10 years of service.
Not only are carpets designed for style but also are offered to cater to homes that have children and pets living in them. Because children and pets can cause unexpected messes (liquid spills, dropping food), high strain resistant carpets (such as nylon) are highly recommended.
Most carpets are offered in the following fabric types:
- Nylon (good for pets and young children)
- Wool (great for properties located in cold weather but harmful to those prone to allergies)
Average Cost to Install Carpet
The cost of a carpet install is calculated on a per square foot basis. The average cost per square foot is anywhere from .99 cents to $4.00 dollars, depending on the fabric and the amount needed. Always get a measurement and a quote before agreeing to a price. The larger the project, the cheaper the per square foot cost will be, as a discount is typically issued when ordering a large quantity of carpet. Not only do you need to factor in the cost of the fabric but also the labor needed to install the carpet.
