RECTANGLE

To calculate thickness:

The size of your material will determine how thick you should place your material.

If your material is:

3/8″ = 1″ to 2″
3/4″ = 2″ to 3″
1 1/2″ = 3″ to 31/2″



TRIANGLE

Weight Per Yard

Looking to pick up your own materials and want to know the weight?

The chart below will give you a rough estimate of the weight.

Due to the moisture content of materials, the products’ weight will vary.

We can load in ¼ yard increments: $10 minimum for quarter yard



To calculate yardage:

Length x Width x Depth = Cubic Feet

Divide by 27 (27 cubic feet in a yard) = Cubic Yards

Depth Conversion to Feet

1" = .087" = .58
2" = .188" = .67
3" = .259" = .75
4" = .3310" = .83
5" = .4111" = .92
6" = .5012" = 1.0
