Hey guys. I need to start asking more questions I'm a bit unfamiliar with, or it's been too long I've quoted such jobs. I'm almost a senior citizen :D

Job #1 Example- 3 1/4" x 24" 2,400 sf. One large great room combined with a 25 foot hallway and into 3 bedrooms. I'd figure 15% overage

Job #2 Example= 3 1/4" x 24" 400 square feet. One area. I always figure 10% overage on square or rectangular rooms.

Your thoughts? Thanks

first if your using 3 1/4" the boards will need to be 26" long a multiple of the width. And I'll assume you are doing a border so you don't need much waste just the small overhangs that you will cut off 5-10% should be fine then I just figure the border separately.

You just always have extra for a job, never just enough! I think your estimate is going to be close, with the longer length of parquet strips.

I never understood the multiple part Jeff. Care to explain.

I go 20% on any patterned goods.
X number of ends should equal length of long side.

Not really a good explainer but if you look at some pictures you can see by the way they have to lie up. I have only done herringbone a couple of times but that is the only way my supplier sells it.

Unfortunately I don't get to see many jobs completed, but over the years with Uptown I have probably sold a dozen with no attention to equaling ends. A few with pictures. I have seen an NWFA article and it didn't make sense either.
