The brick calculator calculates the number of bricks and mortar required to prepare a given area of the wall based on the wall length, height, and thickness.

## Why Calculate the Number of Bricks?

Bricks are an essential material in construction. If you want to know how many bricks in a square foot are required, then it is essential to find the wall height, depth, and width. The other important thing is the cost of bricks and how much money you need to purchase the required number of bricks. Just log in to the brick estimator and find the number of bricks and their total cost.

You can calculate the number of bricks and their cost with the online brick wall calculator. It would assist you to figure out the number of bricks and the total cost of the bricks required in moments.

### How Many Bricks Do I Need?

If you are wondering how many bricks per square foot are required, then the online brick calculator is a simple solution to the problem. You need to precisely estimate the number of bricks you need. You can save a lot of money by estimating the cost and the number of bricks.

For calculating the number of bricks, you need to estimate:

• The area covered by the single brick
• The size of the mortar joint
• The area of the wall

The formula for calculating the number of bricks how many brick per square foot required:

Wall area = Wall Length*Wall Height

Brick Area = Brick Length*Brick Height

Number of Bricks = [Wall Area/(Brick Length+M.J)(Brick Height+M.J)]*Waste (%)

Where:

M.J = Mortar Joint Thickness

Are you worried about the cost of the bricks in your home? Our brick calculator will assist you to find how many bricks in square footage are required and the total cost of bricks and mortar. This is great to avoid the inevitable wastage and cost of construction.

#### Example:

It is quite fast with our brick calculator to estimate the number of bricks. But as a contractor, you need the manual calculations as well. Being a constructor, it is quite necessary to identify the total cost of bricks by brick wall cost calculator.

Suppose Peter wants to build a wall dimension of 10 by 20 feet and a width of the wall 1 foot. He wants an MJ thickness of 10mm. What would be the required dry volume of mortar, and mortar needed if he wants to plaster the wall with mortar of 1:4 ratio of cement and sand, respectively? Assume the percent wastage for bricks is 5%.

Given:

Wall length = 10 ft

Wall height = 20 ft

Wall width = 1 ft

Sand to Cement ratio = 4:1

Bricks wastage = 5 %

Mortar Joint thickness = 10mm

Number of Bricks =?

Solution:

Number of Bricks = [Wall Area/(Brick Length+M.J)(Brick Height+M.J)]*Waste (%)

Number of Bricks = [200/(7*(⅝)”+0.167ft)(2*(1/4)+0.167ft)]*5(%)

Number of Bricks = 49 Bricks (without wastage)

The actual number of Bricks = 49+3= 52 (including wastage)

The brick calculator for wall construction makes it easy to calculate the total cost of the bricks.

## Working of Brick Calculator:

The brick wall calculator allows you to calculate exact number of bricks and other related values by entering the following inputs:

Input:

• Select the type of wall and enter length, width and height
• Select the type of brick and enter the percentage of the wastage
• Enter Mortar joint thickness
• Enter the wet volume of mortar and number of bags
• Enter the price per brick
• Hit the Calculate Button

Output:

• The number of bricks needed
• Wall area and cost of the bricks
• The mortar required
