How much extra tile.


I am getting ready to order tile for my basement. The tiles are 6 X 24. How much extra should I order?

How much extra tile.


it depends on how you are laying it. laying on a 45 degree angle uses more tile. normally 10-15 percent depending on how much you waste with bad cuts or mis-measuring.
