How-to calculate the number of AWS™ from square footage

Using the square footage of your deck or patio, calculate the number of AWS™ pedestals or joist plates needed to install any size of paver.

Formula:

# Pavers Needed = Deck Area/Paver Area
# AWS™ Needed = # Pavers Needed + (Deck Perimeter / Paver Width)

Example: For 24″ x 24″ Pavers on 20′ x 50′ patio:
# Pavers Needed = (20′ x 50′) / 2′ x 2′ = 250 pavers
# AWS™ Needed = 250 + ((20′ + 20′ + 50′ + 50′) / 2′) = 320 pedestals
