Estimating building materials with a calculator designed for it is easy and saves time and money. The Material Estimator calculator helps construction estimating professionals who need to estimate building materials accurately with an adjustable allowance factor. Using the Estimator ensures you get exactly the materials you need without shortages or overages. The calculator’s ability to work in and convert various measuring units makes it adaptable and convenient. Its capability to define material sizes enables you to work within the constraints of your project and not the calculator’s. The added convenience of being able to do quick linear, area and volume calculations allows you to determine requirements so you can find instant solutions for your material requirements. To make sure it is ready to work when you are, it has a dual power source with both solar and battery.
Save time and money by reducing estimating errors with the Materials Estimating Calculator (model 4019) from Calculated Industries. You’ll be able to quickly and easily calculate material costs and allowances and get exactly the materials you need. It’s designed for contractors, trades people and estimators who need to estimate materials and costs for concrete, fences, decks, bricks, tile, flooring, gravel, painting, drywall, paneling, and more.
You’ll be able to accurately find material requirements for studs, 4×8, 4×9, 4×10, 4×12 sheets, board feet, floor tiles, blocks, bricks, gravel, and paint, as well as calculate material costs and allowances using cost and percent functions. Some examples include calculating the number of standard 8-inch bricks for both face and paver applications, the number of needed concrete bags (in either 40-, 60-, or 80-pound quantities), and the number of tiles needed based on area and grout width. It works directly in yards, feet, inches, fractions, and meters, including square and cubic formats–no need to convert to decimals. Store your measurements to instantly get accurate material estimates for your jobs and projects.
The Materials Estimating Calculator can be powered by both solar and battery (CR2016 battery included). It measures 5.7 x 3 x 0.55 inches and weighs 4.15 ounces, and it’s backed by a one-year limited warranty.
