Pinwheel Pattern Quantity Calculator…


The above is a photo of a recent customer slate installation. This pinwheel pattern looks great for those people who don’t like the uniformity of long, intersecting grout lines. It is a little tricky to install (it does needs very accurate layout) but the results are worthwhile.

Many of my customers have trouble working out the quantities of each size required to complete the job, so I created a spreadsheet to simplify the estimates. Download it here.
