# Cement sand calculation for tiles of 100 sq.ft area

Cement sand calculation for tiles of 100 sq.ft area and cement sand calculation for tiles of 100 sq.ft area and how we calculate consumption of cement in fixing of tiles flooring and wall site

Description:- cement sand calculation for tiles. In this topic we calculate cement sand calculation for tiles of 100 sq. ft area . We know that the tile is thin object material usually comes in the shape of square and rectangular and it is made of hard material like ceramic ,stone and used for generally covering of roof ,floors and wall.

What are different steps of floor tile installation process

Tile installation:- we know that tile installation process require adhesive material like clay of cement and cement mortar for laying of tiles at flooring and wall site.

First we mix sand and cement and form mortar, after preparing mortar work there is a coating and adhesive material of clay of cement for tile fixing for floor and wall site.

What is thickness of cement mortar for flooring tiles installation

● Thickness of cement mortar:- The
thickness of cement mortar used in flooring tile installation is thicker than wall tile installation and thickness for cement mortar in flooring tile is about 1.5 inch and in wall tiles is 1 inch.

## Cement mortar calculation for flooring tile installation of 100 sq.ft

The estimation of the quantity of cement bags and required to install the floor tile can be calculated by fixing the following data: mix ratio of mortar, thickness of mortar and floor area for tiles installation

Now cement sand calculation for tile of 100 square feet we have given following:-

Area=100 sqft , thickness = 1.5 inch

First we should calculate wet volume of cement mortar

Wet volume = Area × Thickness
Wet volume =100 ×1.5/12 Cu.ft (12″=1 ft)
Wet volume of mortar = 12.5 CFT

We know that volume increased by 33% in case of dry volume calculation so we multiply cofactor 1.33 in wet volume for calculation of dry volume.

Dry volume =12.5 ×1.33 = 16.625 CFT

Mix ratio:- generally flooring tile fixing ratio of cement sand used in flooring tile installation is 1 ratio 3 (1:3).

Cement/sand = 1:3, total proportion =1+3 = 4, in which parts of cement = 1/4, and parts of sand = 3/4.

### Quantity of cement calculation for 100 sqft tile installation

Volume of cement =part of Cement × dry volume, putting all the value we get
Volume of cement= 1×16.625/4 = 4.156 CFT

And also 20% extra amount of cement required for adhesive material and coating

20% extra cement= 4.156×20/100=0.83125 cft
Hence total cement require for 100 square feet flooring tile installation is 4.156 + 0.83125 CFT= 4.987 CFT

We know that 1 bag cement is equal to 1.226 CFT
1bag cement volume = 1.226 CFT

Number of bag of cement= 4.987/1.226= 4

Typically, an average, the total amount of cement required for 100 square feet (sq ft) floor tile installation is about 4 bags of 50 kg each. So a 100 square foot floor tile installation requires total 200 kg (4 bags of 50kg) cement.

### How many bags of cement required for 100 sq ft floor tiles

The total amount of cement required for 100 square feet (sq ft) floor tile installation is about 4 bags of 50 kg each. So a 100 square foot floor tile installation requires total 200 kg (4 bags of 50kg) cement.

### How much sand required for 100 sq ft floor tiles

Quantity calculation of sand:- in mix ratio 1:3 quantity of sand is 3 part in mix proportion

Volume of sand = 3× 16.625/4 CFT
Volume of sand = 12.468 CFT

Weight of sand in kg = 12.468 × 45 = 560 kg

The total amount of sand required for 100 square feet (sq ft) floor tile installation is about 12.5 CFT (or 560 kg, or 0.56 tons). So a 100 square foot floor tile installation requires total 560 kg (12.5 CFT) sand.

### How much cement and sand required for 300 sq ft floor tiles

Thats 12 bags of 50 kg cement and 37.5 CFT sand are required for 300 square feet (sq ft) floor tiles installation. Therefore a typical 300 square foot floor tile requires 12 bags cement and 37.5 CFT sand.

### How much cement and sand required for 400 sq ft floor tiles

Thats 16 bags of 50 kg cement and 50 CFT sand are required for 400 square feet (sq ft) floor tiles installation. Therefore a typical 400 square foot floor tile requires 16 bags cement and 50 CFT sand.

### How much cement and sand required for 500 sq ft floor tiles

Thats 20 bags of 50 kg cement and 62.5 CFT sand are required for 500 square feet (sq ft) floor tiles installation. Therefore a typical 500 square foot floor tile requires 20 bags cement and 62.5 CFT sand.

### How much cement and sand required for 600 sq ft floor tiles

Thats 24 bags of 50 kg cement and 75 CFT sand are required for 600 square feet (sq ft) floor tiles installation. Therefore a typical 600 square foot floor tile requires 24 bags cement and 75 CFT sand.

### How much cement and sand required for 800 sq ft floor tiles

### Calculate quantity of cement mortar for flooring tile installation of 1000 sq. ft area

Solve:-

Flooring tile instalation required for 100 sq.ft

Cement quantity = 4 bags cement

Sand required = 12.468 cubic feet

Hence flooring tile instalation required for 1000 sq.ft

A) Cement quantity calculation

100 sq. ft = 4 bags cement

1 sq. ft = 4/100 bags cements

1000 sq. ft = 1000(4/100) bags cement

1000 sq. ft = 40 bags cement

Hence flooring tiles fixing or installation of 1000 sq. ft required approx 40 bags of cement

B) Sand volume calculation in cft

100 sq. ft tile fixing = 12.468 cubic ft sand

1 sq. ft = 12.468/100 cubic ft sand

1000 sq. ft = 1000 ( 12.468/100) cft sand

1000 sq. ft required= 124.68 cft sand

Hence Hence flooring tiles fixing or installation of 1000 sq. ft required approx 124.68 cubic ft sand.

Thats 40 bags of 50 kg (or total 2000 kilo) cement and 125 CFT (5.6 tons) sand are required for 1000 square feet (sq ft) floor tile installation. Therefore a typical 1000 square foot floor tile requires 40 bags cement and 125 CFT sand.

### Calculate quantity of cement mortar for flooring tile installation of 2000 sq. ft area

Solve:-

Flooring tile instalation required for 100 sq.ft

Cement quantity = 4 bags cement

Sand required = 12.468 cubic feet

Hence flooring tile instalation required for 2000 sq.ft

A) Cement quantity calculation

100 sq. ft = 4 bags cement

1 sq. ft = 4/100 bags cements

2000 sq. ft = 2000(4/100) bags cement

2000 sq. ft = 80 bags cement

Hence flooring tiles fixing or installation of 2000 sq. ft required approx 80 bags of cement

B) Sand volume calculation in cft

100 sq. ft tile fixing = 12.468 cubic ft sand

1 sq. ft = 12.468/100 cubic ft sand

2000 sq. ft = 2000 ( 12.468/100) cft sand

2000 sq. ft required= 249.36 cft sand

Hence Hence flooring tiles fixing or installation of 2000 sq. ft required approx 249.36 cubic ft sand.

Thats 80 bags of 50 kg (or total 4000 kilo) cement and 250 CFT (11.2 tons) sand are required for 2000 square feet (sq ft) floor tile installation. Therefore a typical 1000 square foot floor tile requires 80 bags cement and 250 CFT sand.

Conclusions:-

Thats 4 bags of 50 kg (or total 200 kilo) cement and 12.5 CFT (0.56 tons) sand are required for 100 square feet (sq ft) floor tile installation.
