Calculating your Composite Decking Requirements.

Determine the Square metre of the area if it is an odd shape measure it as a square or rectangle.
If more than one area add the areas together to make one.
Area 1 = 3 x3
Area 2 = 2 x 2

Total area to be decked 5×5 =25sq mtrs

Long hand way to calculate number of boards:

Total area = 5 x 5 = 25 sqr mtrs x 7.2 (number of mtrs in a square mtre of our boards) = 180 linear metres (divided by)/ 3.6 (board length to get the number of boards you will require) =50 x 3.6 mtr boards (you will need to round up to nearest whole number if not a whole board, e.g. 49.6 becomes 50) multiply 50 by 3.6 to get the new number of linear mtrs i.e 50 x 3.6 = 180 linear mtrs

The shorthand way to calculate number of boards:

Multiply square mtrs x 2 e.g. 34 sq mtrs x 2 = 64 boards (@ 3.6 mtr long)

For screws work on the basis of 40 per square mtr (available in boxes of 200)

Multiply the number of sq mtrs by 40 eg: 34 x 40 = 1360 (you will need to round up to the nearest 200) = 1400 screws divided by 200 means you will need 7 boxes.
