How to Estimate Total Square Footage

You will need a tape measure and some simple calculations for total square footage. For a rough estimate, you should be able to divide your siding into squares, rectangles, and triangles Squares and rectangles use the simple formula: square footage = height x length. Triangles use the formula: square footage = (height x length)/1.5

Squares & Rectangles


square footage = HxL This works for any square or rectangle shape



square footage = HxL/1.5 The area of any triangular shape is the height times the length divided by 1.5
