How many boards do I need?
The simplest method for working out quantities is as follows:
For each face of the building, multiply the width by the height to get the square meter area of that face. Small windows and doors should be ignored as you will need to allow approximately 10 to 15% for waste.
Our cladding boards are ex. 25x150mm, finishing at approximately 18x144mm and in standard profile they require 7.5lm per square metre. For secret nail profiles please allow 8lm per square metre.
Alternatively, please use the calculator to this page to calculate the number of boards required.
