The Drywall Pricing Survey contains pricing information for drywall, also known as sheet-rock and gypsum board. The information is updated in a table regularly to provide price ESTIMATES based on nationally advertised prices for drywall. The pricing is manually extracted from the websites of the national (U.S.) home improvement and lumber stores. It does NOT include taxes. It does NOT included specialized drywall such as mold resistant or specially fireproof. It is just simple and basic drywall. However, it does show trends in general pricing and is useful for the most common use of drywall which is general construction. The pricing is designated by drywall thickness and panel dimension. The following price per sheet information is available as follows:

Drywall is an indoor paneling used to cover studs, plumbing and wiring, which also serves as the base for finishing such as paint or wallpaper. Drywall is also known as wall board, sheet rock and gypsum board. Drywall has a paper layer cover and an interior made of gypsum that is easily cut and somewhat pliable. Drywall typically comes in two sizes, 4x8 and 4x12 feet, and in several thicknesses including 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", and 5/8". Drywall can be common, mold/moisture resistant and with higher fire prevention ratings. Drywall is affixed to interior walls via drywall nails and/or drywall screws.
The Drywall Calculator functions include calculators and data that support the use of drywall including:
The Drywall Calculator utilities also include a pricing survey from nationally advertised retailers. The survey is done to help vCalc's users make rough cost estimations on drywall projects, but the user is always encouraged to use local pricing for the most accurate cost calculations.
