The store that has the better price is store"B". By store "A" charging $5.95 per square foot their price comes out to $53.55 per square yard. There are 9 square feet in a square yard. By store "A" advertising the price by square foot instead of square yard, they are hoping that people will just look at the price {$5.95 vs 38.95} and think that store "A" is a better deal. It is just an advertising gimmic and it is a gimmic because everyone knows that carpeting is measured and sold by square yard.

Trinity Church is planning to carpet the pastors living room floorThe floor is 4ydby 5 yd The carpet costs19.95 per square yard How much will it cost to carpet the floor?

If the room is 4 yards by 5 yards you will need 20 square yards. 20 square yards of carpet at $19.95 is $399.00. Remember you may still have to pay for padding and labor if that is not included in the $19.95 per yard. That may be $3.50 per yard of padding and $7.00 per yard labor approximately. If the room is wider than 12 feet you will use a lot more carpet because of the fill piece required to finish the room must run in the same direction. Total costs summary: * Cost for the carpet ($390) * Installation costs (Labour, underpad) ($210) * Old carpet disposal ($50 est.) * Sales Taxes (@ 10% = $50) * Impact of clergy discounts (@ 10% discount on materials = -$50)

A carpet costs 20 per square meter A room is 7 meters long and 4 meters wide how much would it cost to carpet the room?

Carpets are sold per square meter (unless you find an off cut the size required). Your longest length is 7m, so your carpet will be 7sqm @ £20 per sqm = 7 x £20 = £140. Would exclude gripper rod, underlay and fitting though!

How much does it cost to carpet a room?

If you are not terribly picky, a carpet remnant store is your best bet. It typically costs only about $150 or so to carpet a room up to about 12' by 16' or so. You still need a pad and generally need professional installation so the full price would be roughly near $300. If you have already purchased your new carpet and are simply looking for installation costs, plan on spending approximately $5 to $10 per square yard. More details on prices on
