The **Drywall Calculator** has functions that help compute the amount of materials needed when working with drywall (gypsum) boards. It also includes pricing information and cost estimations.

The Drywall Calculator functions are:

**Drywall for a Room**: This computes the number of 4x8 or 4x12 panels and drywall screws or nails needed for the interior of a room (walls and ceiling).**Cost of Drywall for a Room**: This computes the cost of drywall based on room dimensions and unit price of drywall boards.**Drywall Nails or Screws for a Room**: This compute the number of drywall of pounds of screws or nails for a room based on the dimensions.**Joint Compound for a Room**: This computes the amount of joint compound (spackling, mud) needed for a room based on the dimension.**Drywall for a Wall**: This compute the number of 4x8 or 4x12 sheets and drywall screws or nails needed for one wall.**Cost of Drywall for a Wall**: This computes the cost of drywall based on the wall dimensions and unit price of drywall boards.**Drywall Nails or Screws for a Wall**: This computes the number of pounds of drywall nails or screws needed for a wall based on the dimensions.**Joint Compound for a Wall**: This compute the number of gallons of joint compound (mud, spackling) needed for a wall.**Joint Compound for an Area**: This computes the number of gallons of joint compound needed for a specified number of square feet in drywall.

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 Pricing Survey Date: 3/28/23
- Drywall Pricing Survey Store: Menards
- Pricing of 3/8 inch 4x8 drywall is $11.56
- Pricing of 1/2 inch 4x8 drywall is $10.67 USD
- Price of 5/8 inch 4x8 drywall is $17.78 USD
- Price of 1/2 inch 4x12 drywall is $17.78 USD
- Pricing of 5/8 inch 4x12 drywall is $21.16 USD
