Estimate waste % with install


I need to cover 1600sqf with laminate wood. Is 10% waste correct? So I need what, 1760 sqf?

Sounds about right. However, it's always nice to have some left over in case something happens to it down the road, as you probably won't be able to buy the style you have in a few months.

The wider the plank, the more waste is needed. 5% for strip floors and 10% for plank.
