Estimating tile weight for demo

I have a job coming up with about 300 ft.² of porcelain tile on the floor. It’s 12 x 12“

Then a shower that’s about 200 feet with backer board behind it.

Do any of y’all have a formula to try and determine the weight? Obviously I want to price it high so I have money built into my price.

Thanks advance.

Look in your TCNA Handbook, John. They have general weights listed for each type of tile floor installation. That might give you some idea what you're looking at.

If you want a quick rough estimate, pounds per foot:
Tile: 3.5 to 4
Single layer of mortar: 1
1/2” cement board: 2.5
