Free calculator increases the efficiency of the manufactured stone calculation process by saving time, reducing potential for errors, and minimizing waste from over-ordering.
SUGARCREEK, Ohio, Sept. 18, 2020 – ProVia®, a leading manufacturer of professional-class building products, announces the launch of the industry’s first automated calculator for manufactured stone. The Stone Calculator automatically creates a materials list for ProVia’s stone veneer, replacing the traditional pencil-and-paper process that is tedious and time-consuming. The calculator increases the efficiency of the manufactured stone calculation process by saving time, reducing potential for errors, and minimizing waste from over-ordering.
This online tool automatically populates associated order values during the calculation process, in real time, as installers fill in their initial measurements. The Stone Calculator is free of charge, and while it’s designed for the detailed requirements of professional dealers and installers, is open for use by the general public.
Key Features of the Stone Calculator
- Real-time calculations prepopulate associated order values based on installer inputs
- Intuitive series of parameter choices prompt the user to include all materials needed for the order
- Optimized for use on mobile devices (tablet or phone), making it easy to use while on job sites
- Consistent with NCMA (National Concrete Masonry Association) language and standards
