Difference between Carpet Area, Built-Up Area & Super Built-Up Area
Carpet Area –
Carpet area is the area that can actually be covered by a carpet or the area of the apartment excluding the thickness of inner walls. Carpet area does not include the space covered by common areas such as a lobby, lift, stairs, play area, etc. Carpet area is the actual area you get for use in a housing unit.
Built-Up Area –
Built-up area is the area that comes after adding carpet area and wall area. Now, the wall area does not mean the surface area, but the thickness of the inner walls of a unit. The area constituting the walls is around 20% of the built-up area and totally changes the perspective.
Super Built-Up Area –
It is the area calculated by adding the built-up area and common area that includes the corridor, lift lobby, lift, etc. In some cases, builders even include amenities such as a pool, garden, and clubhouse in the common area. A Developer/Builder charges you on the basis of the super built-up area which is why it is also known as sale-able area.
