To determine square feet, multiply the square inch count by 144. A measuring tape, calculator, and potentially a step stool or ladder are all likely to be needed.




Wearing protective clothing and equipment is recommended to be worn when working with insulation. Safety restrictions must always be discussed with the manufacturer of the product or supplier. If you're in an area that could contain potentially hazardous substances like lead or asbestos, it's important to be aware of the precautions required and, if needed employ the appropriate service contractors.
