The **Cost to Drywall a Wall** calculator computes an estimated cost of drywall to cover a rectangular wall defined by length and height. The user can choose the length (4x8 or 4x12) and enter the unit price of the wall boards (gypsum).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

**(L)**Length of Wall**(H)**Height of Wall**(sS)**Size of Drywall Drywall Sheets (pull-down to choose)**(uP)**Unit Price of Drywall Boards (See Unit Pricing below)

**Total Drywall Cost (TC): **The total cost of drywall is returned in U.S. dollars. The calculator also returns the number of drywall boards required and the total square feet of the wall. However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The Cost of Drywall Calculator:

- computes the total surface area of the wall (CLICK HERE)
- the number of drywall sheets that it will take to cover the area,
- uses the number of drywall sheets and the unit pricing (see survey below) to compute the
**Total Drywall Cost for a Wall**in U.S. dollars.

**DRYWALL CALCULATOR** includes functions and data that support the use of drywall including:

**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 Sheets 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.**Weight of Drywall Boards**: This computes the total weight of a number of drywall boards (sheets).

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.

**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.
