Tape Measure Video

Most home improvement or remodeling jobs require measuring. Some people have asked how to use or read a tape measure. The majority of tape measures are marked in feet and inches. The individual inches are broken down into fractions - 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16. Each division is represented by a smaller and smaller line, with the 1/2 inch mark being the largest.

Some tape measures have color coded marking indicating the 16" on-center spacing. Be careful when reading a tape measure upside down.

Remember, take your time, measure twice and cut once!
