Materials Checklist

Having everything you need is a key component to a successful result. Our Materials Checklist helps you determine what you have and what you still need for all phases of your project.

The following checklists include materials required for a wide range of projects. See our Surface Preparation and Recommendations page to learn what is required for your specific project before you compile your lists.

How to Use Our Materials Checklist

  1. Check the appropriate boxes for items that you “HAVE” and items that you “NEED.” Leave boxes unchecked next to items that your project does not require.
  2. Click Generate My Lists.
  3. Your lists will be divided between what you have and what you need. Any items you left unchecked will not appear on your lists.
