Calculating Square Feet (be sure measurements are in feet)
Calculating Cubic Yards
To calculate the Square Feet needed: Assume you have a rectangular area such as a room and, for example, you want to calculate the square footage area for flooring or carpet. The way to calculate a rectangular area is by measuring the length and width of your area then multiplying those two numbers together to get the area in feet squared (ft2).
To calculate the Cubic Feet needed: Length (ft) x Width (ft) x Depth (ft) / 27
*Ensure that you Length, Width, and Depth are in feet and not inches.
