Simply select the size of deck you wish to build, then see roughly how much material you'll need. These sizes and numbers are based on a basic square deck attached to a house on one side. For more complicated designs please consult with Seven Trust's Pro Services or a professional contractor.
To go across the width of the deck you would use 1.25 16' boards. multiply your lenght 12' x 2 = 24 since it takes two boards widths to equal a foot. Then multiply the 24 x 1.25 = 30. you should add for waste and if you decide to run decking diagonal you should up the waste factor to 20%.
If your deck is slightly out of square different widths , calculate results for both widths, and set out each end to suit. If necessary, adjust number of deck boards to match in both calculations, and see if different board gaps at each end of deck are acceptable, compared to equal gaps and cutting the last board at an angle.
Deck Board Fastener Calculation: Step 1. Determine size of deck and direction of deck boards. Step 2. Determine length of deck board required. Step 3. Calculate number of deck boards. Width in inches divided by 5.65 = Number of deck boards. Step 4. Calculate number of Deck fasteners required.
This deck will require 32 rows of decking boards. 2- Calculate the total decking board lineal meters. Next, we need to work out the total lineal metres of decking required. Multiply the number of rows by the length of the deck again ensuring to allow for the fascia and the overhangs on both sides of the deck.
If the area you are decking is not a simple rectangle then you will need to divide it into rectangles and calculate each area individually. Step 2 The number of boards required depends on the chosen board length 2.4m or 4m and the direction the boards are laid.
