Quick Guide to Measuring for hardwood floors.



Measuring for wood flooring – Basic Guidelines

Planning on getting new wood flooring done for your house? Don’t know how to calculate hardwood flooring square footage? Worry no more!
Here are all the basics of measuring for wood flooring that will help you in getting the right measurements:

• Compute the size
To start off, you need to compute the size of the area that will get wooden flooring. All the numbers and math confuses you? Don’t worry! Here is a simple trick for you

Take a measuring tape and measure the room from wall to wall if the room has a square or rectangular shape. In case the room does not have a definite shape, take the longest ends.
How to calculate hardwood flooring square footage? For instance, if the room comes out to be 15 feet wide and 15 feet long, multiply these numbers and you will get the square footage which is 225 square foot in this case.

• Round off the measurement
Again, don’t get stuck in numbers! If your room is 14’10” x 14’99”, don’t make it difficult for you and start multiplying these mind-boggling numbers.
You have the advantage of rounding off the measurements to the highest number that is 15 x 15! This will make your task a lot easier.
And by the way – 15 x 15 means the room is 15 feet long as well as 15 feet wide. This is the general way in which we represent the measurement – length x width.

• Take measurement when no one is around
Mismeasurement of the floor is one of the biggest problems that one might face when it comes to measuring for wood flooring.
While taking the measurement you want make sure that no one is around or if they are they remain quiet while you are measuring. This will ensure accurate measurements and will save you a lot of trouble.
Don’t forget to move the appliances as you don’t want to miss any area. If you are measuring your kitchen you might want to call a professional who can help you out with moving the dishwasher and then installing it back.

• Keep in mind the waste factor
Waste factor, usually expressed in percentages, is the amount of material that will go wasted during installation of the flooring.
How much waste to calculate for hardwood flooring? Generally, a 5% to 10% waste factor is calculated for cutting and installing.

For someone who has an eye for detail and cannot use certain boards due to color variations, then you should keep in mind a waste factor of up to 15%.
If you are flooring the diagonals then you should definitely keep in mind a waste factor of 15%.

The answer to how much waste to calculate for hardwood flooring depends upon your personal preferences and also on the grade of wood you are using. Low grade always requires a higher waste factor.
As a starter, remember this simple formula – length x width + waste factor = total square footage.

All these basic guideline regarding measuring for wood flooring will enable you to formulate accurate measurements which will in turn making the installations process hassle-free!
