NEW Siding Squares Calculator

Siding Squares Calculator (screen shot)

We’ve created another useful siding calculator.  This one is for figuring out your Siding Squares.  See our Siding Squares Calculator at SquareFootage.org.

In the above example you can see that with our Squares Calculator you can use Feet, Inches, Decimals or any combination of the three for both Height and Length.  The calculator returns the: Squares of Siding, Square Footage, Height in Feet, Length in Feet, Square Inches, Height in Inches and Length in Inches.  How’s that for thorough?  No it doesn’t convert to meters or cups of water or translate into Spanish… maybe those will be in future updates. *wink*

Siding Professional Challenge: if you’ve got a keen eye and are familiar with siding, you may have noticed an oddity with the calculator example above.  What ever may it be – you ask?  No cheating.  If you haven’t spotted it, take another look above then see the answer below.
Answer: in house siding, a wall that is 40 feet tall and 8 feet wide is pretty uncommon.  You would only “typically” find a wall like that on commercial structures like condos, apartment buildings, warehouses, and the like.  It would be extremely rare to see a wall like that on a residential structure.  However, the calculations are correct BUT the example was supposed to be… a variation of 40 feet wide by 8 feet tall.  If I wouldn’t of said anything, would you have noticed?  Be honest. ;)

What is a “Square” of (House) Siding?

A “square” is a unit of area measurement used in House Siding (specifically Vinyl Siding) that equals one hundred (100) square feet.
1 Square (of House Siding) = 10 feet X 10 feet = 100 Square Feet

If you’re interested… and I’m guessing you are if you’ve read this whole post to this point… you can go check out our Siding Squares Calculator and we’d love to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks for the helpful article. It is also my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an really long latency phase, which means that warning signs of the disease may well not emerge right until 30 to 50 years after the first exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, that’s the most common type and has effects on the area round the lungs, could potentially cause shortness of breath, upper body pains, plus a persistent coughing, which may result in coughing up blood vessels.
