Estimation Guide for Chinking
Lineal feet per full gallon (231 cu. in.)
Width of Joint
0.5" 1" 1.5" 2" 2.5" 3" 3.5" 4"
Depth of Joint 1/4" 154 77 51 39 31 25 22 19
3/8" 102 51 34 25 20 17 14 13
1/2" 77 39 25 19 15 13 11 9
You may calculate gallonage needed by finding the feet per gallon and dividing your lineal feet by that number.

Keep in mind that the depth is an average depth across the joint. We tend to think of the depth in the middle of the joint where it is actually the thinnest. If your estimations are generally short, check to see that you use average joint depth.
