Estimate Cost of Drywall Hanging and Taping
How do you estimate drywall and taping?
Calculate how many drywall sheets you will need by dividing the total square footage of the area by 32 (if you’re using 4-by-8 sheets) or by 48 (if you’re using 4-by-12 sheets). If you want to get the cost, just multiply the total number of sheets by the price per sheet. Remember to add local taxes and delivery charges.
