Need Some Help Figuring.


i have to bid an insurance job for a man.it is a split face brick,16x2 1/4x4.how do i figure pieces per sq ft on this?

is going to be about 560 sq ft.
the man who hit the wall must have been driving a tank.the only brick that were broken was where his bumper hit,but shifted the wall enough the poor woman inside the building couldnt get out the only door(he hit about 15 feet from the door).they had to use crow bars to get her out.it also sent a chair flying about 15 feet inside the wall that was hit.

anywho,if anyone could tell me how to figure brick per sq ft on this i would most great full.
