ORDERING FOR YOUR PROJECT
To determine the number of panels needed you can use the following basic guide. For flat walls, determine the number of rows of panels by dividing the height of the wall (H) by 16” and rounding up to the nearest whole number. Next, measure the length of the wall (L), measuring from corner to corner to the nearest increment of 4” and rounding up to the nearest whole number. Add 4” for each corner detail. Multiply the number of rows by the length and divide by 48” rounding up to the nearest whole number.
H/16” = ______(# of rows) , L x # of rows / 48” = ______ panels
For gable ends you need to remember that the panels are 48" long and 16" high. You will have some waste on the gable ends as the material that will be cut off cannot be flipped upside down and used elsewhere.
To calculate how much you can reduce the number of panels you need to order, you will need the window and door opening sizes and you will need to determine where the rows fall with respect to those openings. Depending on your project and shipping costs, it may be better to have a few extra panels than to be one panel short.
