Laying a carpet - these costs are incurred

Laying a rug is not art, but for a layman, this task is a risk depending on the strength of the rug. Customers do not have to be afraid of the costs because the investment is worthwhile.

Beware home improvement!

In theory, it simply looks like laying a carpet yourself. With an extremely cheap and thin ripstitch, this may not be a great deal of witchcraft. But an expensive rug, which is rigid and firm, can not easily be placed in the corners and on the edges.

The result is missing parts and expensive mistakes. In the worst case, the carpet shrinks even after a few days, and there are gaps on the sides. Therefore, the expert is often the better choice.

Prices per square meter

The prices are calculated by square meters for most carpets. However, if there are many corners and small sections, a surcharge can be made here. The customer should not gloss over here if the professional asks for it in the offer.

Remove old carpet

To replace a glued carpet again makes a lot of work, but also this task takes over the professional like - for a surcharge.

  • remove bonded carpet between 3.00 and 7.00 euros
  • remove loose carpet about 1.00 euros
  • Dispose of the old carpet between 1.50 and 3.00 euros

Preliminary work for the new carpet

An old screed may have bumps and holes after removing the old carpet. These must then be filled. Some subfloors should additionally be primed so that the adhesive or tape does not peel off immediately.

  • Apply primer between 0.50 and 1.00 Euro
  • Primer material between 1.50 and 3.00 euros
  • Subfloor filling about 2.00 euros
  • Putty for the floor from 2,00 to 4,00 Euro

Lay the carpet

The prices shown here are inclusive of material and always for one square meter. If the material itself is to be purchased, the expert must know that in advance. Usually he will refuse to work with foreign material anyway.

These prices are of course only indicative. Locally, the price can be quite higher.

  • Bond carpet to the entire surface - between 5.00 and 9.00 euros
  • Carpet loosely laid on tape - between 3.50 and 6.50 euros
  • Lay carpet loosely on Velcro tape - between 5.00 and 7.50 euros
  • Bonding carpeting dry on the adhesive grid - between 11.00 and 16.00 euros

Check the offer to see if the carpet rug additionally calculates how to get there. Depending on the size of the job, you may be able to convince him to delete this post.

Another way to save money is to remove the old carpet. Tedious as that may be, it can save you up to seven euros per square meter.
