In our store, the average price for cheap carpet is 1.50 / square foot. This includes carpet, pad, and basic install. It's ideal for starter homes, rentals, and flips. It is by no means, base grade carpet; if that's what you want, we have it and it's a little less. These carpets are in stock and can be installed usually within a day or two.
Lets assume you have two average rooms, and large master, a hallway, one flight of stairs and a living room. Just for an estimation, will say thats about 1,200 square feet and would cost approximately $2,000 plus tax. Furniture moving and tear-out of old carpet would add about .10 / square foot for each, or $130 each.
Mid grade carpets have an average price of 2.50 / square foot. This also includes a better pad and installation. Our experience has this as the average choice for homes in the 250 to 400,000 price range. We have a few choices in stock, and on average, it would take about a week to bring in any other choice you have.
In the same size house as above, the average total cost would be around $3,500 and would also include furniture moving and tear-out of old carpet.
Carpet is by far the quickest and easiest floor covering, and it is also the least expensive to purchase and have installed. Best of all, it doesn't take long to become proficient in carpet. A little common sense will go along way. The best advice we can offer is this: don't get bogged down with the minutia, the arguments of fiber, or the empty promises of warranties. Start with feeling the carpet with your hands, you'll quickly be able to tell the difference between a good carpet and a bad one. Once you've figured out the proper feel or construction, then you can move on to choices of fibers, colors, and stain protections.

We strive to be the friendliest carpet store possible. Fun is a core value of our business, and we have managed to live the American Dream while barefoot and laughing.
Our carpet installers are professional and courteous. This is what separates us from every other carpet dealer. With IQ Floors, you'll know exactly who is installing your carpeting before he even shows up. Usually, you'll get a chance to meet them when they measure. If not, we'll send you an email with a picture along with a little information about them. This way, you'll feel more comfortable when they arrive to do their job. Please, let us know if you are outside of Colorado Springs.
This chart is a comparison of carpet fibers, not carpets. The main reason I included it is to show how strong of a fiber SmartStrand Triexta PTT is. You still need to choose a quality carpet that is strong in Density and Twist.
