Go Figure-An Easy Way to Calculate Material Requirements and Costs for Home Projects
One of the first steps in most home improvement projects is determining how much material is needed and how much it costs. The Home ProjectCalc is an easy-to-use calculator that quickly answers those questions for homeowners, do-it-yourselfers, woodworkers, hobbyists and decorators.
The Home ProjectCalc works and converts directly in yards, feet, inches, fractions and meters-including square and cubic formats of each. Just enter the values like you say them. For example, if you're installing new molding, simply enter the measurements-12 feet 7 1/8 inches, plus 14 feet 6 � inches, plus 12 feet 7 3/16 inches and press "equals" and you have the amount of molding you need: 39 feet 9 1/16 inches. Fractions are entered directly and don't need to be converted. If needed, it is easy to convert fractions to decimals or decimals to fractions.
In addition, the Home ProjectCalc has dedicated keys for instant calculations to determine how many gallons of paint, rolls of wallpaper, number of tiles or bags of concrete are needed for a particular project. The palm-sized calculator fits in a pocket or purse. It is also a fully functional standard hand-held calculator.
Priced under $20, the Home ProjectCalc can pay for itself in saved time and materials during just one project. Measure twice, calculate and cut once and you may never under-purchase or over-purchase materials again. Home project enthusiasts can save time and money just by eliminating extra trips to the store and half-full cans of paints in the garage.
