Estimating Drywall

Drywall, often referred to as Sheetrock, Gypsum Board or Gyprock is a typical wall lining finish used in modern construction that provides a smooth, ready to paint or wall paper surface.

Drywall is typically installed as single layer on internal wall partitions and can be fastened to wood or metal frames. Drywall panels are butted together and the joins are sealed and sanded with joint tape and join compound.

Exposed corners are often protected with a metal or vinyl corner bead that is set and sanded in place with join compound.

Deductions for large openings should be taken into account to minimize excessive waste.
