ESTIMATING YOUR DRYWALL AND FINISHING NEEDS

Use our Calculator
Quantity
To determine how much drywall you need, follow these steps:

 

Measure your walls corner to corner (length). Do not subtract for openings: windows, doors, etc. Measure your walls floor to ceiling (height). Do not subtract for openings: windows, doors, etc. Multiply the length by the height to find the square footage. Measure the ceiling and multiply the length by the width. Add the square footage of your walls and ceiling to determine the total square footage. Divide the total square footage by the square footage of a single sheet of drywall (see chart) to determine the number of drywall panels required. Certain types of drywall come in limited sizes. Please keep this in mind when calculating the number of drywall panels required (see below).

For example, if your ceiling height is 8’ and you have 4 outside corners, you will require 4 8’lengths of paper bead. Or, simply measure the lineal footage of each outside corner and add together to get the overall footage required.
