Details Tab

The Room Details tab displays an area where room dimensions (L x W x H) are inserted. The room dimensions are used by each substrate component to calculate labour and paint materials as set in Paint Defaults. Simply select the appropriate substrate components you are quoting. Applying a quantity to individual items such as doors and door frames, etc., will automatically calculate labour and materials for these items. You can also add or remove the undercoat requirement plus an individual colour selection per substrate.
Feature Walls – this feature requires m2 to be inputted to calculate accurately.
