How many feather boards do I need?
Hereof, how do I calculate how much fencing I need?
Add the slat or picket spacing to the width of each one, then divide this number into the total length of the fence to find the number of slats or pickets you need. For example, if you're using 6-inch slat, which is 5 1/2 inches wide, and you're spacing them by 1/2 inch, you need 400 of them for a 200-foot fence.
Likewise, can you screw feather edge boards? Use 50mm galvanised nails to attach them - it is important you only use one nail per pale per rail (i.e. 3 nails) - do not nail two pales together. The single fixing is to allow the pales to expand and contract with the weather. As the top of the fence is continuous, capping can be any length.
Accordingly, how much do you overlap feather edge boards?
Feather-edge cladding is designed to be laid horizontally with a vertical overlap of approximately 40mm for boards up to 150mm, and 50mm for boards wider than 150mm. It is important to follow fixing advice, particularly when using green (wet) timber.
How many boards do I need calculator?
To find this multiply the width of the floor-board in feet times the length in feet. You can use our feet and inches calculator to convert the board width in inches to feet. To find the number of boards you need, divide the total deck square footage by the board square footage, eg. total ft2 / board ft2.
