Rules of Thumb for Construction Estimators
“How much of that am I going to need?” As an experienced pro, you’re probably pretty good at ballparking those material estimates. But now, with this basic Estimators’ guide, you can know for sure.
IPS has prepared this reference sheet as your quick go-to guide for accurate estimates on quantities for many common construction supplies, including:
- Metal – screws, pins, marking, etc.
- Wallboard – lift sizes, screw specs and quantities
- Joint Treatments – ratios for compounds, tape, and more
- Ceilings – grid measurements, seismic requirements by zone, etc.
- Weather Barriers – fluid applications for glass mat gypsum, plywood, OSB, and CMU
- Wraps – common Tyvek® measurements and quantities
