The **Mortar for a Wall** calculator estimates the number of bricks or blocks needed for a wall based on the wall dimensions and the size of the bricks or blocks and the associated amount of mortar. * MASONRY WALL*

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

- (
**l**) Length of Wall - (
**h**) Height of Wall - (
**bL**) Brick or Block Length - (
**bH**) Brick or Block Height - (
**bW**) Brick or Block Width - (
**MJ**) Mortar Joint Thickness - (
**OVR**) Overage (percent added to total estimate)

**Mortar for a Brick or Block Wall (V): ** The calculator returns the volume of concrete mortar in cubic yards. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The **Mortar for a Brick or Block Wall** calculator estimates the number of brick or block needed for a wall based on the dimensions of the wall and the size of the brick or block to compute the associated amount of mortar needed. The step to calculate are as follows:

- Compute the number of rows, which is the wall height divided by the brick or block height, with the results rounded up.
- Compute the number of units per row, which is the wall length divided by the brick or block length, with the results rounded up.
- Apply safety margin, which is the addition of the overage percentage to the total.
- Compute the mortar needed per unit and apply it to the total number.

**Bricks or Blocks for a Wall**: Computes the number of bricks or blocks needed for a wall based on the wall's dimensions and the size of the bricks or block.**Brick Block Wall Cost**: Computes the number of brick or block needed for a wall based on the wall dimensions and the brick or block size, and then applies a cost per unit to the number to estimate the total cost of bricks or blocks.**Mortar Requirement for Wall**: Computes the amount of mortar for a wall based on the dimensions of the wall and the size of the brick or block used.**Bricks for a House**: Estimates the number of bricks needed for a four walled structure (e.g., house) based on the building dimensions, the size of the bricks or blocks and the square footage dedicated to doors and windows.**Cost of Bricks for a House**: Estimates the number of bricks for a four walled structure and applies a unit price per brick or block to estimate the total cost.**Block for a Foundation**: Computes the number of blocks needed for the walls of a foundation based on the dimensions of the foundation and the size of the blocks.**Cost of Blocks for a Foundation**: Estimates the number of block for the wall of a foundation based on the dimensions of the foundation and the size of the blocks, and then applies the unit price per block to provide cost estimate.**Mortar Needed for Foundation**: Estimates the amount of mortar needed for the cinder block walls of a foundation based on the dimensions of the walls, size of blocks, and thickness of the mortar joint.**Bricks per Row**: Computes the number of bricks in a row based on the length of the row, the size of the bricks and the width of the mortar joint.**Bricks High**: Computes the number of rows of bricks to achieve a height based on the height and the size of the bricks.**Custom Stone in a Wall:**Computes the number of masonry units (stone, block or stone) in a wall based on the dimensions of the wall and the dimensions of the units and the thickness of the mortar joints. It also returns the number of rows needed and the number of stone per row.**Concrete, Rebar and Forms for Wall:**Computes the volume of concrete, amount of rebar and the surface area of forms for a concrete wall.**Price of Delivered Concrete:**Computes the price of delivered concrete based on the volume, price per cubic yard, pumping cost, delivery distance, and mileage.**Water Needed for Concrete:**Compute the amount of water needed to make a volume of concrete.
