    Default wallpaper, adhesive and sealant calculation

    Hi all,

    Please shed me some advice.


    Calculation
    ===========

    1)
    Wallpaper

    I use following calculator;
    Wallpaper Calculator
    homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/THDCalcWallPaperView?metric=false&catalogId=&store Id=10051&langId=-1


    Example:-
    Wall 1 Length: 14 ft (including windows)
    Wall 1 Height: 8 ft
    Wall 2 Length: 12 ft
    Wall 2 Height: 8 ft

    Square Feet per roll = 56.1 sq ft
    (Wallpaper size
    A standard roll of wallpaper is 20.5 inches in width and just under 33ft in length.
    20.5 = 1.7 ft
    Total size = 1.7 x 33 = 56.1 sq ft)

    Wallpaper Rolls = 4.4 rolls
    Then purchase 5 rolls


    2)
    Ready Mixed Wallpaper adhensive

    Example:
    Wickes Ready Mixed Wallpaper Adhesive 5kg
    wickes.co.uk/invt/610094/?source=123_75
    Size: 5kg

    Wallpaper capacity: Hangs up to 5 rolls

    So I only need one tub.


    Whether above calculating work? Any further advice in addition? Thanks


    Regarding sealant.
    Example:
    Peel Stop Clear Binding Primer
    zinsserdirect.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=1_4&products_id=26
    How to calculate the quantity needed? The walls are quite smooth with few light scratches and dirty marks on it.

    If use fabric wallpaper (wallpaper with textile-backing)
    Do I need adding extra quantity of adhesive?

    You have the right approach to estimating materials. Just add 10% to each (for spoilage, waste, mistakes and extras).
