Formulas to use when determining coverage

[Click here for downloadable PDF version]

NOTE: When determining coverage, use actual face size (e.g. 5-1/2" for 5/4x6 boards)


Square Feet to Linear Feet

Formula: SF x 12 / face size

Example for a 500 SF deck of 5/4x6 meranti:
500 x 12 / 5.5" = 1090 LF

 

Linear Feet to Square Feet

Formula: LF x Face Size / 12

Example for 1090 LF of 5/4x6 decking:
1090 x 5.5" / 12 = 500 SF

 

Linear Feet to Board Feet

Formula: LF x Nominal Face Size x Nominal Thickness / 12

Example for 1090 LF of 5/4x6 decking:
1090 x 6" x 1.25" / 12 = 681.25 SF
