If you know you need flooring for your retail space and you have an idea of what type of material you want, then the next question most likely is “How much do I need?”
The methods used by estimators to calculate retail flooring estimations utilize various units of measurement: square feet, square yards, linear feet and item counts. The first step is to determine the amount of flooring materials needed to complete the project. In most retail flooring estimations, the project floor plan, finish schedule and specifications can be used to help identify the types of flooring, the locations of each flooring type and the total measurements required.
