### How to calculate the cost of wall putty per sq. ft.? / Estimating the cost of cement wall putty. (Part - 1)

For the calculation procedure, go through the following steps.👇

Let us find out the application cost of cement wall putty for the below-given wall.

Given data:

Height of the wall = 10 ft.

Length of the wall = 16 ft.

Area of the wall

= [length × height]

= [ 16 ft. × 10 ft.]

= 160 sq ft.

A. Material calculation:

Let us apply Asian wall care putty for this wall as shown below.

The coverage area as specified by the company for 2 coats is 10 - 15 sq ft./kg.

Let us take the average of these coverage areas = 12.5 sq ft./ kg.

So, total wall putty consumption

= [total wall area ÷ coverage area in sq ft.]

= [ 160 sq ft. ÷ 12.5 sq ft.]

= 12.80 kg.

B. Labor calculation:

The labor rate for applying 2 coats of wall putty is between INR 3/- to 5/- per sq ft.

Let us take the average rate of INR 4/- per sq ft.

The total cost of labor

= [ total wall area × labor rate / sq ft.]

= [ 160 sq ft. × 4/- ]

= INR 640/-

Now, let us calculate the cost of applying Asian wall putty in table format.

 Sl. no. Item. Qty. Rate. in INR. Unit. Cost in INR. 1. Wall care putty 12.80 21/- Kg. 268.80 2. Miscellaneous Lump-sum 50.00 3. The material cost = 318.80 4. Add 5% wastage = 15.94 5. Total material cost = 334.74 6. Labour cost = 640.00 7. The total cost of applying wall care putty = 974.74

Note: To get accurate results, insert your regional market rate of materials & labor, in the above table.

1. Cost of applying cement wall putty /sq ft.

= [ Total cost  ÷ area of the wall ]

= [ INR 974.74/- ÷ 160 sq ft. ]

= INR 6.09 / sq ft.

2. Cost of applying cement wall putty /sq m.

= [cost per sq ft. × 10.764]

( As 1 sq m. = 10.764 sq ft.)

= [ 6.09 × 10.764]

= INR 65.57 / sq m.
