Fiber cement cladding calculator that will calculate the amount of boards needed to cover a wall using metric measurements. It can be used for any type of external wall cladding, including Engineered Wood Cladding that comes in boards of one length.
Siding length, siding width and exposure required need to be entered in millimetres.
Ex: A board 4200mm x180mm with an overlap of 30mm
Siding Length: 4200mm
Siding Width: 180mm
Some common board sizes
4200mm x 180 mm
4200mm x 300mm
4200mm x 230mm
4200mm x 205 mm
3600mm x 180 mm
Total amount needed:
- Siding needed does not include a waste factor.
- House Wrap needed does not include amounts needed for overlaps.
- Nails are based on nailing the siding boards at 600mm centers.
- In addition this calculator does not provide the amount needed for joint flashing and tape.
