Enter the length of the wood beam (ft) and the cost per foot of wood ($/ft) into the Wood Beam Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Wood Beam Cost. 

Wood Beam Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Wood Beam Cost. 

WBC = LW * CPF

  • Where WBC is the Wood Beam Cost ($)
  • LW is the length of the wood beam (ft) 
  • CPF is the cost per foot of wood ($/ft) 

How to Calculate Wood Beam Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Wood Beam Cost.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the length of wood beam (ft). The length of wood beam (ft) is given as 40.
  2. Next, determine the cost per foot of wood ($/ft). The cost per foot of wood ($/ft) is provided as 30.50.
  3. Finally, calculate the Wood Beam Cost using the equation above: 

WBC = LW * CPF

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

WBC = 40 * 30.5 = 1220 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

length of wood beam (ft) = 60

cost per foot of wood ($/ft) = 70

Entering these values and solving gives:

WBC = LW * CPF = 4200 ($)
