# Floor Finishes Carpet Quantity Takeoff Calculator

## Detailed Calculation

To determine the quantity of carpet required for a flooring project, follow these steps:

### 1. Measure the Area to be Carpeted

**Length (L)**and**Width (W)**of the room in meters (or feet).**Area (A)**= Length (L) × Width (W)

### 2. Calculate the Total Carpet Area Required

**Total Area Needed**= Area of the room**Add Wastage**: Typically, 5-10% for cutting and fitting.

### 3. Calculate the Quantity of Carpet Rolls Needed

**Roll Width (RW)**: Standard roll widths are usually 3, 4, or 5 meters.**Roll Length (RL)**: Length of the carpet roll.**Carpet Roll Area**= Roll Width (RW) × Roll Length (RL)**Number of Rolls Needed**= Total Area Needed / Carpet Roll Area

### Example Calculation

**Room Dimensions:**

- Length (L) = 5 meters
- Width (W) = 4 meters

**Area Calculation:**

- Area (A) = 5 meters × 4 meters = 20 square meters

**Adding Wastage:**

- Wastage = 10% of 20 square meters = 2 square meters
**Total Area Needed**= 20 square meters + 2 square meters = 22 square meters

**Carpet Roll Details:**

- Roll Width (RW) = 4 meters
- Roll Length (RL) = 10 meters
**Carpet Roll Area**= 4 meters × 10 meters = 40 square meters

**Number of Rolls Needed:**

- Number of Rolls Needed = 22 square meters / 40 square meters = 0.55 rolls
- Since you can't purchase a fraction of a roll, round up to 1 roll.
