### square feet to linear feet

I have a deck that is roughly 1300 square feet . What formular do I use to calculate to linear feet.

I'd use a tape measure.

If it is rectangular, it could be any two numbers whose product is 1300, like 10' by 130', or 25' x 52' or even 36.0555' in each dimension.

### Re: square feet to linear feet

You are looking for linear feet of your deck; â€ślinear feetâ€ť alone is not really a measurement of an area, it must be accompanied by a width. Perhaps you are looking for the number of linear feet of a material needed to cover the deck. If this is the case, you must know the width of the material in question. Then divide the area of the deck by the width of the material (in a common unit of measure) = linear measurement.

Examples:
1300â€™ / .5â€™ = 2600 Lin. Ft. of 6â€ť wide material
OR
1300â€™ / 1â€™ = 1300 Lin. Ft. of 12â€ť wide material
OR
1300â€™ / .25 = 5200 Lin. Ft. of 3â€ť wide material
OR
1300â€™ / 4â€™ = 325 Lin. Ft. of 4â€™ wide material

For any project you would take in consideration
LWH
Length, Width & Height
Most places go in that order.
so if I wanted to put casing around my door way and the casing size was
15mm x 2-1/4"-14'
I would know that it's
15mm in length
2-1/4" in width
14' in height
So to trim a door way with a rough width opening of 2" & 14' height I would need three pieces minus the corners if using them.
Same thing for a deck.....

Linear feet by definition does not take into account the width or height. Just the length.

If your rail is 12 feet long then it is 12 linear feet.

Nothing else would be taken into account.

If you are trying to make sure you have enough rail to go from point A to point B, then you would need AB linear feet. You would not care if the rail was 2 feet wide or 6 inches thick, you just need a certain length.

If he is trying to cover the area of a deck (and not just buying a rail), of course the width is important. Let's take the oversimplified example of a deck which is 2 feet white by 10 feet long. He would need 10 linear feet of 2 foot wide board. He would need 20 linear feet (i.e., 2 10 foot lengths) of 1 foot wide board. He would need 40 linear feet (4 10 foot lengths) of 6" wide board, and so on. The square footage (20 feet) has not changed, but the linear footage varies depending on the width of the material.
