How Much Recommended Overage of Laminate Flooring Will I Need?

When it comes to ordering laminate, you will want to include overage or waste factor. We recommend you will want to include 5-10% waste, this will factor in for any extra cuts, errors or damage. Including overage into your order will help avoid any shortage issues or need for replacement/repair box (es) in the future. Calculating waste is also a simple equation:

5% Waste: Square Footage x 0.05 = Waste amount + square footage = Final Square Footage

10% Waste: Square Footage x 0.10 = Waste amount + square footage = Final Square Footage

 

*Note: Order 1 or 2 extra box(es), in case item is discontinued and repairs are needed in the future.
