## What is a construction calculator?

A good **construction calculator** will help you quickly perform **construction**-related calculations, such as how much paint is needed for a certain area, what the volume of an area is, how steep a slope is, or how many materials you need for a certain part of a structure.

## How do you calculate rafter length?

Just multiply the rise or run by the appropriate **rafter length** factor corresponding to your roof pitch. For example, if your roof pitch is 30ﹾ and your run is 2.4m then reading from the table the **rafter length** factor is 1.15. Multiply this factor by your run which gives your **rafter length**.

## How do you calculate rafters?

If you are **calculating rafter length** from the center of the ridge beam (as shown below), you will need to subtract half of the thickness of the ridge beam from the top end of the **rafter**. For example, if the ridge beam is 1.5 inches thick, subtract 3/4 of an inch from the overall **rafter length**.

## How do I calculate how much material I need?

**Figure out how much fabric** you **need** with this formula:

- Width of
**fabric**divided by width of one piece equals the number of pieces that fit into width (rounded down to the whole number). - Total number of pieces divided by number of pieces that fit into width equals number of rows you
**need**.

## How do you calculate building materials?

Multiply the total height and length of the wall to **find** the total area. Multiply the width and height of each opening to **find** the area. Subtract the area of the openings from the total area of the wall. Divide the result by 32.

## How do you calculate construction costs?

For example, if your new home is to be 2,000 square feet and your builder estimated that it would **cost** $350,000 to build, then your **cost** per square foot is 300,000 divided by 2,000, or $175.

## How do you calculate inches on a calculator?

**Convert** feet to **inches** by multiplying the number of feet by 12, since there are 12 **inches** in a foot. Using a feet to **inches** conversion **calculator** also simplifies this step. Try our other length conversion **calculators** to **convert** other units to decimal **inches**.

## How do u do fractions on a calculator?

First enter the numerator of the **fraction**, then press the division key and enter the denominator. Hit the “equals” key and the **fraction** will display as a decimal. You can’t convert a decimal to a **fraction** on the **calculator**, but the **calculator** can help you **do** it with a pencil and paper.

## How do you calculate number of stairs?

Divide the rise by 6 or 7 inches (15 or 18 cm) to find the total **number of stairs**. For larger **stairs**, divide by 6 and for smaller **stairs**, divide by 7. The total you get is how **many stairs** your future **staircase** will have so you can plan accordingly.

## How do you calculate slope of stairs?

**How To Calculate Slope** Of **Staircase**

**Measure**the distance of treads (Exclude the width of nosing). If all the treads are uniform in size,**measure**one tread otherwise you will need to**measure**all treads.**Measure**the height of risers.- Divide the riser height by the tread width and then
**calculate**the inverse tangent.

## How do you calculate stair height?

So to **calculate** the number of treads (**steps**) you will need, we simply take the **height** to deck measurement and then divide this **figure** by 175 (**rise height**). We than take that final **figure** and subtract 1, as this final **figure** has given the total amount of rises and not total amount of treads.
