Flooring Takeoffs & Estimating Services

flooring takeoff includes a list of floor material quantities classified as per the type of floor finishes used in the project. A typical flooring take-off includes the square footage of tiles, carpet flooring, wood flooring, and the linear footage of cove base, number of transition strips, etc. It can be a time-consuming task to measure the quantities of flooring material for a large commercial construction project. The flooring estimation with manual calculations can be suitable for small residential projects. However, for big commercial jobs, it is useful to use some construction estimating software like Planswift or Bluebeam, etc.  If you are a busy flooring contractor or supplier company then you can also outsource flooring estimating services from a professional company like us.

Flooring Cost Estimation Per Square Foot
Traditional method:

The traditional method to calculate the per square foot cost of flooring is very simple. First, measure the total area of the house. For instance, if you want to install flooring tiles in one room, then measure the area of the floor by an inches tape. Multiply the length by the width to get the total area of the room. It is better to convert the entire area into inches for more efficient calculations. As one foot has twelve inches, multiply the total area by the square of twelve to convert into inches. You can do this manually or by using a calculator to convert it into square footage. There are several online foolproof calculators available for the calculation of this cost.

New Method:

With the advancement of technology in the construction industry, some useful softwares like PlanSwift, Blue Beam, Autocad, etc. are used for all kinds of estimation jobs including floor areas. Softwares like NavisWorks are also being employed in the BIM industry to do automatic quantity calculations and costing of projects. The process is very simple; you just need to import the digital drawings into the software, scale them and start drawing the areas for each kind of flooring type. This way, the software will automatically calculate the areas as well as the cost of flooring. Finally, you can export the quantities to MS Excel spreadsheet and price the material takeoff sheet to get the total bidding cost of the project.

Estimating the Cost for Carpet and Tile Flooring
Cost of Tile Flooring:

Now that you’ve decided you want to tile your house with some fancy tiles, you should know how heavy it’s going to be on your pockets. In the market, there are ceramic and porcelain tiles, stone tiles, tiles in different polygonal shapes, and so on. If you don’t overextend your liking, still it would be easier for you if you know the exact cost of installing tiles in your house. For this, measure your floor and its total area which you need to cover with tiles. However, the cost factors for tile flooring include the type, installation charges, sales tax, shipment, grading, and the brand.

The generic cost of tiles mainly depends on your choice. You can go for cheaper options or the more high-end ones, it all depends upon you. To calculate the total cost of tile flooring, first, measure the area where you want to install the tiles. After getting the total area, multiply it by 110%. The extra ten percent accounts for any miscalculations, edges, and manual mistakes. Now that you have calculated the total amount of tiles required, you can estimate the budget. On average, tiles cost vary between $8-$24/sq.ft. This price includes the material as well as installation costs.

Cost of Carpet Floors:

The carpet flooring material and installation cost range between $2 to $3 per sq ft on average. Carpets come in three main categories which are builder grade, mid-grade, and high grade. And the prices mainly depend on the quality. However, the material and style are its cost determinants. The builder-grade carpets get sold at a lower $ rate per sq. foot. Whereas, the ones made of delicate material are comparatively expensive.

The installation cost of carpet flooring is usually $0.65/sq.ft. They come in a house-friendly variant called peel and stick. Moreover, the different sizes available are 12 feet by 12 feet, 18 feet by 18 feet, and 24 feet by 24 feet.  The carpet installation costs depend upon a lot of factors like the size and shape of the room, furniture removal, hauling out the old flooring, style, and labor.
