CONCRETE CALCULATOR FORMULA:
(LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH) DIVIDED BY 27 =# OF CUBIC YARDS

EXAMPLE:  18 FEET LONG, 18 FEET WIDE,  6 INCHES DEEP  
THIS WOULD BE:    (18 X 18 X .5)/27 = 6 CU.YARDS
 



To use the Concrete Volume Calculator, simply enter the width, length, and thickness of your pour, click on whether you are measuring the thickness in feet or inches, then click on the Calculate button. The calculator will estimate the number of cubic yards of concrete that will be required.

To use the Block Wall Calculator, simply enter the height and length of the wall, click on whether you are filling an 8-inch or 12-inch wall, then click on the Calculate button. The calculator will estimate the number of blocks that will be required. Note that this is an estimate. There is significant variation in fill space among different blocks.

Examples:

BLOCK WALL
8" Block: 9(L) x 9.75(H) = 98.5 Blocks Needed
12" Block: 10.64(L) x 9(H) = 72.0 Blocks Needed

BRICK
Approx. 7 Bag of Mortar per 1000 Brick
Approx. 1 Ton Sand per 1000 Brick
Figure 7 Brick per Sq. Ft. (Allows for Waste) 4.625 Courses Brick per foot of Wall Height
5 Brick per Sq.Ft. for Pavers, Hearths

CONCRETE
Small batch formula 3-2-1 mix = 3 shovels of gravel, 2 shovels of sand, 1 shovel of cement, water to desired consistency

WALLTIES
1 per every 10 Brick (100 Wall Ties per 1000 Brick)

ZONOLITE
4 Cu.Ft. Bag Fills Approx. 9-12" Block or 16-8" Block
12" Block yields 11.5 R-value
8" Block yields 7,14 r-value
