This tool helps you estimate the total square footage of areas in your home or office.

## How to Use This Calculator

This Sq Ft Estimator helps you calculate the total surface area and volume of multiple rooms in a building. To use it, simply enter the following:

**Length:**The length of a single room in feet.**Width:**The width of a single room in feet.**Number of rooms:**The total number of rooms.**Ceiling Height:**The height of the ceiling from the floor in feet.**Floor Thickness:**The thickness of the floor in inches.

Click on the ‘Calculate’ button to get the total square feet of the surface area and the total cubic feet of volume for the entire set of rooms. The result will be displayed in a text field that you cannot edit.

## Explanation of the Calculation

The Sq Ft Estimator calculates the total surface area by multiplying the length and width of a single room and then multiplying this by the number of rooms. It also adds the surface area of the walls by taking into consideration the ceiling height. The total volume per room is calculated by multiplying the length, width, and ceiling height. The floor thickness, which is given in inches, is first converted to feet and used to calculate the floor volume per room. The floor volume is added to the room’s total volume to give a comprehensive estimate of the total volume for all rooms.

## Limitations

While this calculator gives a good estimate of the square footage and volume, it has limitations:

- The calculator assumes that all rooms are of equal size and shape.
- Irregular shapes or multiple ceiling heights in a single room are not accounted for.
- Additional architectural details like windows, doors, and built-in furniture are not considered.
