I recently purchased a property and I have lumpy carpet. The inspector and realtor told me I can just re-stretch it and not need to replace it. I have around 800 sqft maybe less. A contractor quoted me $3 a yard.

Does that seem reasonable? Ballpark ~ how much should this be?

Thanks

Stone

$40 bucks. That's how much you can buy a carpet stretcher for and do it yourself.

I had three bedrooms and a den done for $120. It didn't take them long at all.

800 sqft is 89 yards which would make it $267 dollars. Personally I would buy the tool and do it myself. Any excuse to buy a tool.
