`TC = (L * W) " at " FP" `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Flooring Material Cost of Room** calculator estimates the cost of flooring needed to cover an area based on the unit price per square foot.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**L**) Floor Length - (
**W**) Floor Width - (
**FP**) Flooring Price per Square Feet (e.g. $1.98 per square foot. See Price Survey below)

**Flooring Material Cost (TC):** The calculator will compute the flooring material cost for the area in U.S. dollars and the area of the floor in square feet. However, these can be automatically converted into compatible units via the pull-down menu next to the answer.

- High - This is the 75 percentile of surveyed costs.
- Mid - This is the median of surveyed costs.
- Low - This is the 25 percentile of surveyed costs.
- Economy - This is the lowest cost per unit surveyed.
- n - This is the sample size of the survey (number of products in the survey).

The above prices are for different flooring materials and price points in the United States as advertised on the date indicated by a large big-box DIY retailer on their public website. A retailer is surveyed and the number of products included in the survey is listed. Survey sample is typically not the complete product line of the retailer. This is purely for convenience of calculator users to make a rough estimate. Sample pricing is entered into Price Survey Tools to generate the statistics found above.

**CAUTION**: The pricing information provided is for calculating convenience with NO implied guarantees to the accuracy of the values listed. Authoritative sources should be sought to confirm any value **before risking health or wealth **on the veracity of the data. Furthermore, vCalc gives no guarantee that you will be able to buy products at listed prices or even if they will be available. The data provided is purely a convenience for making estimates, so we strongly recommend that one ALWAYS use local pricing and authoritative specifications.

The formula for Flooring Material Cost is:

TC = L⋅W⋅UP

where

- TC = Total Cost of Flooring
- L = Length of Room
- W = Width of Room
- UP = Unit Price per Area (e.g., $2.45 per ft
^{2})

**Floor Area by Dimensions**- Computes the square feet (area) of a floor based on the length and width (LxW) of the room entered in feet and inches.**Floor Area + (Angle Bump-out) -**Computes square feet of a room based on the length and width of main room and the front and back width and depth of a bump-out.**Floor Area + (Squared Bump-out)**- Computes square feet of a room based on the length and width of main room and squared bump-out.**Flooring Cost by Square Feet Covered**- Computes the cost of flooring material based on the square feet of the room and unit price per square foot of the flooring. Use this for cost of flooring with rooms with bump-outs after computing the total area (TA) using the bump-out functions above.**Cost of Flooring a Room**- Computes the cost of flooring based on the dimensions (LxW) of the room and the unit price per square foot of the floor.
