## Rate Analysis For Tile Flooring – Cost & Quantity

** First,** **We have to Calculate the qty & Cost of these 5 Materials to calculate the flooring cost.**

1). Tiles quantity & cost.

2). Cement quantity & cost.

3). Sand quantity & cost.

4). Grouting quantity & cost.

5). Labor Cost.

**Cost & Quantity Of Tiles In A Room**

**Suppose,**

Room Size – 15’ x 12’

**(Step 1) Qty of Tile & Rate…. **

Total Area of Tile Flooring – 15’ x 12’ = **180Sqft**

Area of Skirting – (12 x 2) + (15 x 2) = 54feet

Consider, the Height of the Skirting – 6’’

Consider the Height of the Skirting – 6’’ or 0.5’ (covert inch to feet)

**(Because, 1 feet = 12inch)**

Total Area of Skirting – 54 x 0.5 = 27Sqft.

**Total Area for Tile – 180 + 27 = 207Sqft.**

Wastage & Breakage @ 5% – 207 x 5% = 10.35Sqft

Total Tiles Required including Wastage – 207 + 10.35 **= 217.35Sqft.**

**Consider tile size – 2’x 2’**

So, the Total area of 1 tile – 2’ x 2’ = 4Sqft

Hence,

Total Tiles required – Total Area/1 Tile Area

= 217.35 /4 **= 55Tiles **

No. of Tiles contains in 1 box – 4Nos.

Total Tiles Box Required – 55/4 = **13.58 or 14Nos. **

**Total Cost of Tiles**

Here, we consider the tile average Rate – 35/-Sqft

1Box Tiles Contain – 4Nos. Or 16Sqft

So, Total Cost of 1 Box – 35 x 16 = Rs.560/-

**Total Tile Box Required – 14Nos.**

**Total Cost of Tiles – 14 x 560 = Rs.7840/-**

**(Step 2) Cost & Qty of Cement for Tile Flooring**

**Mortar Ratio – 1:6 (1Part Cement & 6 Part Sand)**

Total Area of Tiles – 217Sqft or 20.16Sqmt.

Consider the thickness of Mortar – 50mm or 0.05mtr.

So,

The volume of Mortar – Area x thickness

= 20.16 x 0.05 = 1.008 Cum.

But it is Wet Volume,

To convert wet volume to dry volume multiply it by 1.33(constant)

Hence, Dry Volume = Wet Volume of Mortar x 1.33 = **1.008 x 1.33 = 1.340Cum**.

Now, We calculate the quantity of cement mortar

**Quantity of Cement – **Part of Cement in Mortar/Sum of Ratio x Dry Volume

**Quantity of Cement – **1/7 x 1.340 = 0.1914Cum.

As you know, the Density of Cement = 1440Kg/m3

So, Total Cement in Kg – 1440 x 0.1914 = 275.6Kg

(1 cement bag = 50kg)

**So, Total No. of Cement Bags **= 275/50 = 5.5Bags

Consider 1 Bag for Cement Slurry

**Total Cement Bags Required – 5.5 + 1 = 6.5 or 7 Bags **

**Total Cost of Cement**

Here, we Consider Cement Bag Average Rate – Rs.380/-Bag

We Required cement Bags – 7Bags

**So,Total Cost of Cement – 7 x 380 = Rs.2660/-**

**(Step 3) Cost & Qty of Sand for Tile Flooring…**

**Mortar Ratio – 1:6**

Dry Volume = Wet Volume of Mortar x 1.33 = **1.008 x 1.33 = 1.340Cum**.

**Quantity of Sand – **Part of Sand in Mortar /Sum of Ratio x Dry Volume

**Quantity of Sand – **6/7 x 1.340 = 1.148 Cum. Or 1.148 x 35.3147 = 40.56Cft

Because, 1Cum = 35.3147Cft

**Total Cost of Sand**

Here, we consider sand average rate – Rs.50/-Cft

Total Sand Required – 40.56Cft

**Total Cost of Sand – 40.56 x 50 = Rs.2028/-**

**(Step 4) Grouting**

1kg white Cement is enough for grouting the Joints

**1kg White Cement Cost – Rs.25/-**

**(Step 5). Labor Cost for Tile Laying…..**

Labor rate for Tile Laying work Approx – Rs.12 to 14/-Sqft

Total Tile Laying Required – 217.35Sqft

Consider an average labor charge – Rs.13/-Sqft

**So, Total labor cost – 217.35 x 13 = Rs.3695/- **

Total Tile Laying Cost – Tile Cost + Cement Cost + Sand Cost + White Cement Cost + Labor Cost

**Total Cost – 7840 + 2660 + 2028 + 25 + 3695 = ****Rs.16248/-**

**Tile Cost Per Sqft – Total Amount/Total Area**

** – 16248/217.35 = Rs.74.75/-**

__Important Notes –__

1). The materials rates considered in this rate analysis are exclusive of GST.

2). The Materials & labor rates may vary, depending upon the site condition, location & type of project.

3). I have not considered the wastage of cement & sand in mortar.

**So this is the easiest method to calculate tile flooring Cost and materials quantity.**

I earnestly hope that this post has been both meaningful and useful to you & help you to make your house flooring estimation.
