HOW TO MEASURE KITCHEN COUNTERS & PRICE YOUR OWN JOB
4 Simple Steps
STEP 1 - Find or borrow a tape measure, or spend $5 at a hardware or box store.
STEP 2 - Measure length (end-to-end), & depth (wall to edge) of each "Area".*
JUST MEASURE TO THE 1/4 INCH. DON'T HAVE TO BE TOO PRECISE.
*An Area is a counter section forming a square or a rectangle. For L-shaped counters, the 1st leg is Area 1, and the 2nd is Area 2 (like the drawing below).
Note: Extend angles to form squares or rectangles (see the drawing below)
STEP 3 - Length x depth of each Area = square inches. Divide by 144 = square feet (SF).
HERE'S AN EXAMPLE:
Island 84-1/4" x 36" = 3,033 square inches, divided by 144 = 21.06 square feet. EASY, YES?
STEP 4 - Add up footage for all Areas. Multiply by our flat labor cost of $28 SF.
You've just priced the basic fabrication and installation for your stone-counter project!
