Stairs Calculator, Decking Estimator / Calculator, Setout, Concrete and other calculation!

StairCalc is designed for carpenters, contractors and builders who need accurate stair, decking & flooring calculations.

It is designed to save you the time and effort required for these building calculations - but it is not intended to teach you how to build stairs or decking - you already know how.

No need to remember complex data entry steps in order to enter data - start entering in any field. Double tap on buttons for help and guides.

Simultaneously find solutions when restrictions on tread, step rise, incline and 2R+G are required or ignore All or any number of restrictions - maximum flexibility.
Calculate when overall Rise & Run are both variable or fix either one - uses Long press Option.

Accurate and reliable, it is an indispensable tool for the stair framing, decking & flooring construction pro.
Developed by carpenters and used by contractors and builders around the world.

Metric or US/Imperial (feet, inches - decimal or fractions).

Also includes a general calculator simplified for construction calculations including a tape which can be emailed.


STAIR FRAMING (currently for single stair runs):-
Set upper and lower limits for step rise, treads, incline values and the slope formula 2R+G (2R+TD in some areas) where required by codes - all or only some applied at the same time.

In addition to handling multiple restrictions simultaneously Staircalc also allows for situations where the overall stair rise is fixed or the stair run is fixed or both rise and run are fixed allowing maximum flexibility.

Too unwieldy to use

I just purchased this in order to figure a stairway that will rise 7' with a 4' landing and another 7' rise. There is nothing intuitive about this and there are no instructions. Save your money. Now if I can just get the App Store to refund my $6.99.

Developer Response ,

Hi RevB,
Sorry you were not happy with the experience.

You can get detailed help on each button by double tapping it.

Also the 'help' button on the top Left of the screen gives a quick overview.

You do not need to enter in any order and values are saved as changed and recalculated.

Main choices are to 1): Select whether the overall stair rise or run are both changing or either is fixed -' Long Press' to Change (orange Buttons).
2): Select if restrictions are to apply - 'Long Press' - ON or OFF - scroll up to set restrictions values.

Please email us from Setting -> More Information->Support and we are more than ready to assist.
Kind Regards
