# How To Measure Linear Feet For Granite Countertops

**For our example, because there are no specific measurements listed other than the overall width and length, your linear edgework would be estimated as follows:**

**How to measure linear feet for granite countertops**.
The calculator includes installation price, dimensions, length, as well as the type of material such as granite, marble.
So, for a countertop that you figured 20 square feet, you'd actually have 7 more square feet.
How to measure countertops l shape counter top to measure section a:

Divide this number by 144 2500 ¸. Kitchen countertops can change the entire look and feel of your kitchen, and can range in price from inexpensive to exorbitant. You need to give an approximate calculation of the countertops’ square footage to receive an estimate for the cost of your new countertops.

Begin with a scale drawing of your countertop layout or layouts. To calculate the area of each countertop section, multiply the length times the width. Write down the length of each segment as you measure them.

Add the two totals together to find total square footage: To find the linear feet of multiple pieces of lumber, you need to measure the length of each piece and add the measurements together. Divide that number by 144 and that should give you square feet of granite backsplash needed.

Same size as a in this case, so 1562.5” piece c: Total edge length (feet) 120” ÷ 12 = 10 ft. To calculate how many square feet of countertop you need, measure the linear footage of your current countertop and add 1 ½” overhang at each end.

Our technical solution is an excellent guide that helps to determine the final cost based on the correct quotes for the edge profile. Start at one end and measure each straight segment of countertop. 62.5” x 25” = 1562.5” piece b:
