Take guesswork out of projects

Spring has arrived, and with it, a desire to spruce up the house. Whether you plan to hang wallpaper in the bathroom, replace the roof, or paint the family room, how do you know the quantity of supplies needed?

One easy way is to use the materials calculators at ImproveNet, www.improvenet.com/plan/index.html.

The site explains which factors to take into consideration when calculating amounts of materials, and shows how to make accurate measurements - including three methods of determining your roof's pitch.

Free online calculators are also available for drywall, ceramic tile, concrete, and lumber.
