# Deck Material plus Cost for Joist and Decking Calculator

Calculates the deck joist and the amount of decking material needed to build a deck.

Results for the amount of material in lineal feet.

The number of boards needed for the decking is based on the width of the board and ¼" spacing

#### The Calculation

- length of deck
*(the distance away from the house in feet and inches)* - width of deck
*(feet and inches)* - spacing of the deck joist
*(in inches on centre)* - beam ply
*(number of ply's of the beam)* - the width of the decking board
*(inches)* - Lineal foot price of joist material
- lineal foot price of beam material
- lineal foot price of the decking material

- number of joist based on spacing
- the length of the joist
- deck joist needed in lineal feet
*(in addition to the result for 1 it adds 2 joist for doubling the end ones plus a ledger and rim board in the lineal foot count)* - the lineal feet of the beam material
- the number of boards for the decking
- the lineal feet amount of the decking boards
- total cost of the material
