Step 1: Enter the Total Area

  • Total Area to be Covered: Begin by inputting the total area of the surface where the tile backer boards will be installed. This area should be entered in square feet. For accuracy, measure the length and width of the space in feet, multiply these numbers together, and enter the result.

Step 2: Select Panel Size and Thickness

  • Panel Size: Click on the dropdown menu to select the size of the backer board panels. The sizes available are:
    • 36"x60": Suitable for various applications, available in thicknesses of 1/4", 1/2", 5/8", or 1".
    • 48"x96": Larger panels for bigger areas, available in thicknesses of 1/2" or 5/8".
    • 24"x96": Long, narrow panels, available in a 2" thickness.
  • Thickness: Each size option includes the thicknesses available for that dimension. Selecting a size will implicitly select its thickness options as listed in the dropdown menu.

Step 3: Calculate the Panels Needed

  • Calculate Button: Once you have input the total area and selected the panel size and thickness, click the ‘Calculate’ button. The calculator will compute and display the number of panels required based on the panel dimensions and the area entered.

Step 4: Read the Results

  • Results Display: The result will appear below the calculate button, indicating how many panels you will need. It will specify the number and describe the size and thickness of the panels calculated to cover the area entered without shortfall.

Tips for Accurate Measurement

  • Ensure all measurements are taken at the widest and longest points of the area to be covered to account for any irregularities.
  • Consider adding extra area for cutting waste, especially in irregularly shaped rooms or when matching patterns.

By following these steps, you can efficiently utilize the Tile Backer Boards Calculator to estimate materials accurately, helping to streamline your purchasing process and ensure that you have sufficient materials for your project.
