Steps Involved In Drywall Takeoff and Estimating
If you are wondering how to do the drywall quantity takeoff then here are a few steps to be followed;
- Measure Out – The first part of any estimate is completing a thorough and accurate measurement of the entire area that needs to be drywalled.
- Drywall Sheets – Next, we’ll calculate how many sheets of drywall you’re going to need to complete the entire project. We’ll also include a percentage for waste and mistakes to ensure that you have enough material to complete the job, but not too much.
- Drywall Tape – The next step in the process is estimating how much drywall tape you’re going to need to complete the entire job.
- Joint Compound – After you sheet and tape, you’re going to need to know how much joint compound you’ll need.
- Drywall Screws – It’s often the small things that add up. We’ll calculate approximately how many screws you’ll need to finish the entire project.
- Corner Beads – We’ll measure the corners throughout the project and give you an accurate number of corner beads you’ll need for all your outside corners.
- Labor Costs – We can calculate labor costs based on the size of your project, the speed of contractors, and hourly or project-based rates.
- Miscellaneous Accessories – Damage, sandpaper, fees, permits, site repairs, and cleanup will all be taken into account.
- Painting Costs – If your gypsum board walls need painting then we can also quantify that for you.
