### What will be the installation cost of UV PVC marble sheets?/Estimating the cost of UV marble sheets.

Let us calculate the installation cost of UV PVC marble sheets for a wall of size 10'x 12'

Calculation:

Area of wall = [10'x 12']

= 120 sq ft.

Size of one sheet = [4' x 8']

Area of one sheet = 32 sq ft.

No. of sheets required

= [area of wall ÷ area of sheet]

=[120 sq ft.  ÷ 32 sq ft.]

= 3.75 nos.

As we cannot purchase cut pieces, the number of sheets required = 4 nos.

Let us install these sheets as shown in the below drawing.

Total length of profile Patti required

= [4nos. x height of wall + 3nos. x  width of the wall]

= [ 4nos. x 10 ft. + 3nos. x 12 ft.]

= 76 ft.

Let us purchase a profile patti of 8 ft. in length.

No. of profile Patti required

= [total installation length ÷ length of one patti]

= [76ft. ÷ 8 ft.]

= 9.5 nos.

By rounding off, we need 10 nos. of profile patti.

Material rate:

Cost of UV marble sheet  👉     INR 1800/- to 3000/- per no.

For the calculation purpose, let us consider the average rate =   INR 2400/-

Cost of profile patti          👉     INR 180/- to 220/- per no.

For the calculation purpose, let us consider the average rate =   INR 200/-

Screw                               👉     INR 100/- (approx.)

Glue                                 👉     INR 300/-  (approx.)

Labor rate:

Installation cost of labor    👉      INR 18/- to 28/- per sq ft.

Let us consider the average rate = INR 23/- per sq ft.

Total cost of labor

= [ wall area in sq ft. x rate/sq ft.]

= [ 120 sq ft.  x 23/-]

= INR 2760/-

Transport       👉   INR 350/- (lumpsum.)

Let us calculate the total installation cost in a table format.

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

Installation cost per sq ft.

= [total cost ÷ wall area]

= [15,110 ÷ 120]

= INR 126/- per sq ft.

👀. If the UV marble installation work is handed over to any contractor, then you have to add 15% extra for his profit.

= [ installation cost/sq ft. + 15% of installation cost/sq ft.]

= [ 126/- + ( 15 ÷ 100) ×  126/-]

= [126 + 18.9]

INR 145/- per sq ft.

Thank you for going through these calculation steps. Have a good day 😄.
