 # Rate Analysis For Tile Flooring – Ceramic Tiles

## 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.
