Calculate Building Materials using the
enhanced calculators provided by Source4me
the building materials sourcing specialists have launched new & improved
online building & construction material calculators & estimators.
in addition to adding new calculators to the existing FREE area of the
Source4me the Sourcing Specialist, have
again extended their online building and construction materials calculators to
include new enhanced versions.
This is in addition to the
popular FREE building material calculators.
Use of the FREE calculators
is fairly self explanatory.
For Example using the is quite simple
Simply enter the overall
length, width and depth of the proposed dig and click on ‘calculate’
This will then provide you
with the volume/mass of various types of dry or wet strata such as clay, gravel
There is also an optional
calculation for the number of skips, lorry loads required for removal.
The is only a little more complex, but provides so much more
Enter the excavation
dimensions as in the free version. Then you also have optional values to input
for costs. Including material removal per tonne or m³, labour & plant
The same applies for the
following enhanced calculators, all with optional variables such as individual
material costs: bags of opc, sand per tonne, bags of plaster, plasterboard
costs, tiles, paving slabs, insulation and so on.
Labour costs per square or
cubic metre for brickwork, concrete, plastering, tiling and more.
(also known as bulking) - Enter the
length, width and depth of excavation in metres. The results estimate will be
given for the cubic metres of resultant spoil. Includes quantity and tonnes of
excavations for sound rock, chalk, earth, clay, sand & gravel
Enter the area in square metres (length x
width) and the required compacted depth and the estimator will provide the
approximate quantity of crusher run required for a consolidated sub base.
Enter the length & width in metres and
the depth in millimetres and the estimator will work out the total volume of
concrete required for your project.
Enter the dimensions asked for and this will
calculate the required quantities of sharp sand, gravel (aggregate) and cement.
Calculates you building materials required to
lay a specified patio area. Allows various sizes of slab/flag to be specified.
Estimator for a given area and slab size,
this works out the overall cost in square metres & yards of any size of
flag or slab.
Calculator for floor screed. Enter the
dimensions asked for and this calculates individual quantities for sand,
cement, lime, plasticiser etc with many variables.
This calculates the approximate volume of
ready mix screed required for the given dimensions.
Calculate plaster. Enter the width &
length or height of the wall or ceiling to be plastered in metres. The results
will be provided for 25kg bags of bonding, browning, hardwall, multi finish,
board finish, & 1st coat render. Assuming 11mm thickness. (see below for a
more extensive internal plastering estimator).
calculate metal, wood or timber quantity.
Enter the length and height of your wall or walls and this will estimate the
quantities of stud partition, insulation, plaster board, scrim tape, screws and
calculate insulation requirements in foil,
pur, quilt and plasterbord.
calculate number of flooroards to cover a
specified floor area.
the number of tiles required to cover a specified area. Can be used for both
wall and floor tiles.
Enter the area of brickwork in square metres
and this calculates the sand & cement requirements for a general 4:1 mix.
Calculator for Brick, block, sand, cement
quantities for single skin, 6", 9" walls.
This Calculator will estimate the quantities
of bricks, blocks and mortar (sand & cement) insulation, ties & render
required for a given area of cavity wall construction. It will also provide the
approximate costs involved for cavity work.
Calculator for render. Enter the dimensions
in the yellow boxes and this will calculate the approximate quantities required
for external rendering including sand, lime & cement etc.
This calculator calculates the required
quantity of slates, holing and battens for your roofing requirements.
Enter the length & width and either the
height of the gable or the fall to calculate the areas for tiles, slates, felt
