How to calculate bricks in a wall with brick calculator

Determine square footage of the wall

To work out the required number of bricks for a wall, initially, find out the area to be covered, in ft2. For this purpose, calculate the width and height of your wall or surface. After that, determine the area in square footage by multiplying the width of the wall in feet with the height of the wall in feet. As for instance, a 10′ wide wall with 8′ high would cover 80 ft2.

Determine square footage of each brick

Once the area of the surface is known, determine the area that each brick will encompass. To simplify the process, just get the ft2 of each brick and divide with 144 for changing in2 to ft2. It should be kept in mind that there will also be a 3⁄8” mortar joint among each brick.
