Preserving the Past, Building for the Future

Building Materials Calculator

building materials calculator

Not sure how much material you’ll need for your project?  Our calculator can help you get a material list to help you with your plan.

None of the fields are required, so you may use this calculator for anything from calculating how much paint to use in a room, to how many shingles are needed to re-roof your home, to planning a shed.

Note that the formulas used to calculate building materials are approximate based on industry standards for our region.  Other factors may determine that you require more or less.

Lumber prices change often, as it is a commodity.  Therefore we cannot use this calculator for the price of your project.  Stop into the store for a quote on your material, or give us a call!
