Repair is serious and troublesome, especially when it comes to replacing the flooring. With a bathroom or kitchen, everything is relatively clear - most people prefer to lay tiles there.
But for the room there are a lot of options, one of which is the laying of the laminate coating. Laminate coating is not only durable, but also durable. It does not require special skills in repair work. Installation of laminate is simple. Any business starts with a plan. The start of the repair is no exception. A work plan and estimate are drawn up, which includes all the costs of acquiring construction material. In this article, you will learn how to calculate the amount of laminate flooring.
Before you buy a laminate , it is necessary to clearly know what amount is required per room. When calculating, it is necessary to take into account not only the features of this type of coating, but also the manufacturer, and the brand, as well as the method of laying the board - diagonally or directly.
If you buy less material, it may happen that you will not be able to purchase it, because there will not be such a color of the laminate board in the building supermarket. Repair for this reason may take indefinitely.
Laminate per room
You can independently calculate the number of boards that will be needed for repair. To do this, use a simple algorithm. How to do it correctly?
Room drawing is a prerequisite for the calculation of laminate panels, especially if the room is non-standard. Detailed drawing should take into account doorways, indents, pipes, niches and radiators.
It is only necessary to measure the area of a room by floor. The walls of the room may be uneven, so the measured area will differ from the true floor area.
The resulting area of the room should be divided by the area of one laminate board. The result of the calculations is rounded up.
To accurately determine the amount of laminate it is not enough to have only a drawing of a room and know its area. Depending on the location of the slats on waste can take from 5 to 10% of the material.
Knowing the features of the calculation and types of installation of laminate coating, you can independently create an algorithm for counting:
After installing the laminate, there may remain several panels that can be used in case of emergency repairs.
