# Subfloor Cost Calculator

When it comes to home renovation or construction projects, estimating costs accurately is crucial. If you’re planning to work on your subfloor, you’ll want to know the expenses involved. Our Subfloor Cost Calculator is here to help you calculate the cost of your subflooring project with precision.

Formula

To calculate the subfloor cost, our calculator uses a straightforward formula:

1. Multiply the length of the subfloor (in feet) by the width (in feet) to find the total square footage.
2. Multiply the total square footage by the cost per square foot to determine the total cost.

How to Use

Using our Subfloor Cost Calculator is easy:

1. Enter the length of your subfloor in feet.
2. Enter the width of your subfloor in feet.
3. Input the cost per square foot for your subflooring material.
4. Click the “Calculate” button to obtain the total cost.

The result will be displayed in the “Result” field, showing you the estimated cost of your subfloor project.

Example

Let’s say you have a subfloor that is 20 feet in length and 15 feet in width, and the cost per square foot of your chosen subflooring material is \$2. Using our calculator, you would enter these values and click “Calculate.” The result would be \$600, indicating that your subfloor project is estimated to cost \$600.
