Estimating square footage is a pretty easy process. Simply measure the length and width of each room you want to have the hardwoods in. If there are curves or angles in the room, there is no need to panic! You should measure as if the area was a square, using the longest part of the curve or angle and then measure the width the same way. After you have the individual area measurements, multiply the lengths and widths together of each room then add the measurements together to get the total. After you have the sum, don’t forget to add a waste factor of 8%!
