Decking Calculator

Use our Timber Decking Calculator to estimate the materials you’d require to build your deck so you can adequately budget for your project.


  • Decking size 70 x 19mm
  • Lineal metre 100 LM

    How to choose the right type of decking?

    Selecting the suitable decking type for your project involves many different factors. One of the first is the budget and determining the material options available within that price bracket, and then comes the costs associated with the deck maintenance. Other factors to consider include the structure’s intended purpose, the desired aesthetic and the environmental factors at the site, such as sun exposure or moisture.

    How do you calculate decking requirements?

    To determine the material needs for your project, you must first calculate the structure’s dimensions. Establish what type of subframe the structure will have and the footing requirements. Based on the length and width of the decking board, you may need more or less depending on what building material you have selected. It is essential to consider handrails, steps, and edge design, as additional products may be necessary. It is also necessary to calculate hardware, including the method of fixing selected (i.e., nails or screws). Enter this information into the timber deck calculator to estimate the linear metres of timber required.

    How To Use Decking Calculator?

    Estimating the cost and amount of materials required to install a new timber floor calculator will help you adequately budget for the project. Using the ATPine decking calculator, you can plan, estimate, and purchase all the products needed to start building. To use this tool, enter your project details into the three boxes. You will need the area size (in square meters), the decking size (70 x 19mm, 90 x 19mm, 140 x 19mm), and the wastage percentage. After entering this information, you will receive a material estimate in linear metres.
