Convert Board Foot to Square Foot:

Board Feet: Board Width:

To Compute square feet from board feet, simply find the flooring dimensions and divide the board footage by the following conversion factors:
1/2" x 2 divide BF by 1.25
1/2" x 1-1/2" divide BF by 1.33
3/8" x 2" divide BF by 1.25
3/8" x 1-1/2" divide BF by 1.33
3/4" x 3-1/4" divide BF by 1.23
3/4" x 2-1/4" divide BF by 1.33
3/4" x 2" divide BF by 1.38
3/4" x 1-1/2" divide BF by 1.50

Example: if you have 186 BF (board feet) of 3/4" x 2" wood flooring, you compute:
     186 / 1.38  = 134.8 ft˛

.

Find Bundled Square Footage:

    # of Runs

Bundle Length (ft) Board Width

(# of runs X bundle length in feet X width in inches) / 12
Example: if you have 16 runs of 2-1/4" flooring in a bundle that is 8 feet long, you would compute:
(16 x 8 x 2.25) / 12 = 24

.

Convert Lineal to Square Footage:
Lineal Feet:
Board Width:
Square Feet:
 

(Lineal feet x Width in inches) / 12  =  Square Ft.

Example: If you have 40 lineal feet of a 2 inch wide feature strip, you would compute:
(40 x 2) / 12 = 6.66 ft˛

Convert Square to Lineal Footage:
Square Feet:
Board Width:
Lineal Feet:

(square feet x 12) / width in inches = lineal footage

Example: If you have 8 square feet of a 1-1/2 inch feature strip, to get lineal feet you would compute:
(8ft˛x 12) / 1.5 inches = 64 lineal ft
