This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Many people are surprised how math-intensive construction is when they first enter the industry. While you may be able to handle a lot of these computations yourself with a regular calculator, you'll probably find that you waste a lot of time and wind up with more than a few errors. These purpose-built models are specifically designed to solve common building-related equations. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best construction calculator on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 17, 2018:

In addition to functionality, we believe durability is also important in construction calculators since they may often be tossed in a bag with other tools or jumbled around in the back of a work van. After that, we did our best to include fully-featured models that support a wide variety of calculations.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
