Tips for Drywall Estimator
Most rooms are standard squares or rectangles. If so, please use the steps above to determine how much drywall you need. On the other hand, if you have an irregularly-shaped room, sloping walls or would like to estimate how much sheetrock you need without our calculator, consult our drywall calculation tips below:
- If your room is not a square or rectangle, break it up into smaller sections. Measure walls and ceilings in each section and then add together.
- Sloping walls all together form a triangular area. Therefore, you can calculate the triangular space by using the area equation: length of the wall at the base of the triangle multiplied by its height and divided by 2. See image above for more details.
- If measuring by hand, always add at least 10% to the drywall sheets required. There will be waste.
- If measuring by hand, you must know the size of your desired sheetrock. Once you do, determine the square footage of one sheet. For example, if you’re using 4′ x 10′ sheets, the total square footage of one sheet is 40sf. Once you determine surface area of the entire room, or how much drywall is needed, divide that number by 40. This is the number of drywall sheets required.
- Despite the drywall sizes listed above, drywall sheet lengths can go up to 16’. The most common drywall size is 4’ x 8’. Anything bigger is very difficult to carry and install on your own.
What is a construction material takeoff?
An accurate construction takeoff is an integral part of developing a construction estimate.
A construction material takeoff is a document that lists all of the materials on a project and their associated costs. Compiling a construction takeoff is one of the most important steps in a project. An estimator will prepare an estimate based on the material takeoff, so it’s incredibly crucial that it be as accurate as possible.
When an estimator receives a set of plans or drawings, they need to determine which materials are necessary to actually build the project and in what quantity. They do this by “taking off” the materials from the blueprint. By carefully measuring walls, floors, pipes, electrical conduits, and other items based on these plans, they can determine with great accuracy how much of each item they’ll need.
The process doesn’t stop there. The construction takeoff also helps to establish the cost of each of the materials. By multiplying the number of materials by a unit price, the estimator can establish the overall cost for items like lumber, flooring, ceiling tiles, drywall, and other materials vital to the completion of the project.
When the estimator takes their time and accounts for all the materials needed, they can create an accurate estimate that helps protect the contractor’s bottom line. If they do a poor job, they’ll miss materials or make mathematical errors, resulting in too much material, too little, or none at all. An inaccurate takeoff can destroy a project’s timeline and profitability.
