Calculating material requirements is outlined in our Decking Installation Guide. Let's walk through this process.
Calculating Material Requirements
Step 1: Determine Square Footage
To determine how much TimberTech decking material you will need, start by calculating the square footage of your deck surface by multiplying length by width.
Step 2: Determine Plank Length
Once you know this number, divide it by the numbers provided below for:
- 12' planks
- 16' planks
- 20' planks
Step 3: Divide by Plank Length
Once you know the square footage number, divide below by:
- 5.5 for 12' planks
- 7.3 for 16' planks
- 9.1 for 20' planks
When calculating the amount of decking you will need, it’s recommended that you add roughly 10% to the total for a scrap factor.
