For any construction project, small or big, it is necessary to make initial rough estimations. Designing, calculations and estimations are to be done to know the overall budget of the project. These calculations take the maximum amount of time of the designer or the construction contractor.

To make things easier, faster and efficient, there is nowadays an option of online calculators and designers. These applications make instant cost estimations for different types of construction materials required in a construction project. All that is required is the rough data like some dimensions, some specifications and some parameters, and these software calculates the type and amount of materials required, the cost estimation and the design/ layout of the project.

These free online services provide 45 different types of calculations. Materials for construction of pitched or mansard roofs such as rafters can be estimated. Depending upon the no. of turns, angle of rotation, span and type of staircase, a layout of stairs can be generated with the amount of material required. Concrete amount, shapes and rings can be calculated and designed using this software.

Even for building the most basic structures like walls, floor and fences of any construction project, estimation for the materials can be calculated using these online calculators. Amount of cement, concrete, gravel, accessories, tiles, plasterboard can be found depending upon the requirement. Calculations can be also be done for the excavation works.

All the calculations can be done by just entering the dimensions and parameters, extracting designs, material and cost estimations using the online calculators and designers.
