vCalc.Wall - Drywall Cost

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 your preferred units and enter the following:wall - drywall.png

  • (L) The length of the wall
  • (H) The height of the wall
  • (sS) The size of the drywall sheet (pull-down to choose)
  • (uP) The unit price associated with the drywall boards (See Unit Pricing below)

The calculator computes the total surface area of the wall (CLICK HERE) and the number of drywall sheets that it will take to cover the area.  It then uses the number of drywall sheets and the unit pricing to compute the Total Drywall Cost for a Wall in U.S. dollars.
