Common Drywall Types
Before we can start with our estimating guide, it is important to know about the different drywall types.
Here’re some common drywall styles:
1. Regular whiteboard: It is a common drywall type that is fire-resistant and is also known as Type-X. It is a regular whiteboard that comes in thickness between ¼” and ¾”. With a different number of layers and thicknesses, you can choose an appropriate one keeping in view the required fire rating.
2. Another common type is the green board drywall. It derives its name from green-colored paper that is famous for deflecting water and is mostly used around wet areas of the house like bathroom and laundry.
3. For areas where you need water and mold resistance, the blueboard type has a lot to offer.
4. Other types include cement board, soundboard, mold-resistant, and enviro-board.
Common Drywall Thickness and Sizes
Knowing common drywall thickness and sizes will help you a lot in your estimation and takeoff jobs. In most common cases the width of a drywall sheet is 4 feet. It is pretty uncommon for a drywall sheet to be of different width. The most common size of the drywall sheet is 4 ft x 8 ft. Therefore, commonly the length is 8 feet.
