**How
to Calculate Cement and Sand Required for Floor Tiling?**

** **

The calculation
of the quantity of cement and sand required to install the floor tiles was done by
using the following data

much Cement and Sand need for Tile flooring?**

**Cement and sand Mortar Mix Ratio**

**Mortar Layer Thickness**

**Floor Area for tile Installation**

**Let
us Start,** Calculation of **Cement and sand** for installing Floor Tiles on a **100Sqft** Area

**Consider Given Data:**

Cement
and sand Mortar Mix Ratio = 1:3 mix ratio

Mortar
Layer Thickness = 1.5”

Floor
Area for tile Installation = 100sqft

**STEP
1: Calculation of Wet Volume of the Given area**

Wet
Volume = Area of Floor Tiling x Thickness of Mortar

Wet
Volume = 100 x 0.125 = 12.5scft

**Wet
Volume** **of Cement Mortar = 12.5scft**

Dry
Volume = 33% increase in Wet Volume

Dry
Volume = Wet Volume + 33% Wet Volume

Dry
Volume = 1.33 Wet Volume

**Dry Volume**
**of Cement Mortar** = 1.33 x 12.5

**Dry Volume** **of Cement Mortar** = 16.625 cft

**STEP
2: Calculation of Cement from Mortar Mix Ratio**

Cement and sand Mortar Mix Ratio = **1:3 mix ratio**

Sum of Mortar Mix Ratio Proportion = 1+3 = 4

**Therefore,**

** **

Volume of Cement = (1/4) x 16.625 = 4.15625 cft

Provide 10% extra for Wastage

10% extra cement = 0.10 x 4.15625 = 0.415625 cft

Then, **Total volume of cement** = 4.15625 + 0.415625 = **4.57 cft**

** **

**1 bag of cement = 1.226 Cubic Feet**

**Number of bags for 4.57 Cft = 4.57/1.226
= 3.72nos - 4 Nos**

** **

**The number of bags required for 100 sqft installation of tiles will be 4 nos**

**STEP
3: Calculation of Sand from Mortar Mix Ratio**

Cement and sand Mortar Mix Ratio = **1:3 mix ratio**

Sum of Mortar Mix Ratio Proportion = 1+3 = 4

**Therefore,**

** **

Volume of Sand = (3/4) x 16.625 = 12.468cft

Provide 10% extra for Wastage

10% extra Sand= 0.10 x 12.468 = **1.2468cft**

Then, **Total volume of Sand **= 12.468 + 1.2468 = **13.7148 cft**

** **

**Volume of Sand Required for 100 sqft = 13.71 cft – 14cft**
