2. Finding out the Ceiling Area to be Ceiling

Another method, can be done by calculating the floor area in each room. That way, the final figure obtained from the entire building area is the area of the ceiling to which the PVC ceiling will be installed.
For example, for a type 36 house, the room area is about 36 square meters. So the ceiling area is also about 36 square meters.
3. Calculating the Required PVC Ceiling Sheet
After the two methods have been done, the next step is to find out how many ceiling sheets to buy.
Currently, the size of PVC ceilings sold in the market has a size of about 3 meters, 4 meters, 5 meters and 6 meters. As for the width, the average is around 20 cm, with a thickness of about 6-8 mm.

For example, the area of the room and the ceiling for a type 36 house is 36 square meters. While the PVC ceiling sheet to be installed is 3 meters in size. Then the calculation is 36 square meters x 3 meters x 20 cm = 60 sheets.

The price for this type of ceiling is around 24 thousand rupiah per sheet. Then the way to calculate the budget is, 60 sheets x Rp. 24,000, – = Rp. 1,440,000, -.
Thus, the total price that must be provided to purchase the PVC ceiling needs of the doff white type (for a 36 meter type house), which is around the amount mentioned above.
