## Calculation for Exposed Ceilings Quantity Takeoff

To accurately estimate the quantity of exposed ceiling panels needed for a given room, follow these steps:

1. Calculate the Area of the Ceiling:

The area is obtained by multiplying the length and width of the room.

Example: For a room with a length of 20 ft and width of 15 ft:

Area = Length × Width = 20 ft × 15 ft = 300 sq ft

2. Determine the Number of Panels Needed:

Calculate the area of one panel and divide the ceiling area by this panel area.

Example: If each panel is 2 ft × 2 ft (4 sq ft):

Number of Panels = Ceiling Area / Panel Area = 300 sq ft / 4 sq ft = 75 panels

3. Calculate the Number of Boxes Required:

Divide the number of panels by the number of panels per box and round up to the nearest whole number.

Example: If each box contains 12 panels:

Number of Boxes = Number of Panels / Panels per Box = 75 / 12 ≈ 6.25

Since you can’t purchase a fraction of a box, round up to 7 boxes.
