A bigbox store has this priced at $1.47 sqft. with a free pad. They salesman figured up the price of install at $22.38 a sqyd. This leaves around $9.00 difference from the price of carpet to the install price. Does this seem like the installers are getting a huge price or the pad is NOT free or both?? Secondly, this carpet is 6.6 Wear-Dated nylon, 55 face wt, 4.75 twist, 4400 thread count made by Coronet and is 1/2" cutpile. The twist rate threw me a little, but would this still be a good medium-grade carpet to buy? Thanks alot.

In my part of the country carpet installation is about $4.00 per yard.

Now the question comes; what does installation involve?

For my price I remove all the furniture from the room and remove the old carpet leaving the tack strips down. The installer does the pad, carpet and border strips.

He would charge me more if he had to do the muscle work. The big lot store is quoting a price that reflects them doing it all I reckon or they take a big cut of the installer's charge.

thanks for the reply. I decided to go with the Mom and Pop local store for a good install price and they move everything. I really liked the Lowe's carpet, but was having trouble getting them to pin down a price I could understand.
