Drywall is a construction product commonly used to finish building interiors. For hundreds of years prior to its development, the interior walls of buildings were usually made of plaster. This was applied in layers over narrow boards called laths that were nailed directly to the studs. The plaster was pressed into gaps between the laths to make it adhere, and was built up in progressive layers.

Priming the wall seals the joint compound, which has a different texture than the rest of the wall and absorbs more paint than the drywall. Priming blends the joint compound and the drywall, so the surface is uniform. Use a primer designed for painted walls. Apply with a paint roller and use a brush for smaller areas.

Eco-friendly Drywall

One significant way to have a greener home is in the choice of drywall used in the walls.

  • Green E-Board

    3’ by 5’ by ¼ @ $8.49. Green E-Board is a combination of recycled wood fragments and the natural mineral elements magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride, which are brought together in a slurry process.

  • Fire-resistant Drywall

    The gypsum in the drywall is chemically combined with water molecules which turn to steam in the case of a fire, thereby acting as a fire retardant.

  • Moisture-resistant Drywall

    These are mostly installed in areas where moisture is a daily occurrence, such as in a bathroom.

  • Traditional Drywall

    This white drywall is available with either square or tapered edges, and historically it has been the most prevalent type of drywall used in residential construction for living rooms and bedrooms.

  • Soundproof Drywall

    Typically built with the soundproofing materials sandwiched between two layers of gypsum, this is by far the most expensive type of drywall.

Drywall Cost per Square Foot

Drywall installation costs vary based on several factors, and it’s important to consider them all before budgeting for your project. One of the main factors is the type and size of the job, which can significantly impact the final cost. For example, a whole-house installation of sheetrock typically costs less per square foot than smaller jobs. Additionally, the cost of materials and installation can vary between $3.50 to $8.50 per square foot, depending on the scope and complexity of the project. More expensive materials will affect the overall cost as well. If your project is in a garage or basement, you may be able to save on costs by opting for unfinished drywall. To give you a better idea of what to expect, we’ve provided average costs for installing drywall in various wall and room sizes below. By reviewing this information, you’ll be better equipped to estimate the total cost of your drywall installation.

Drywall Installation Cost by Type

There are many different types. In most applications, standard or traditional sheetrock is used unless otherwise specified. However, when installing it in a basement, bathroom, or another wet area, you may want a different type. If you are installing it in a commercial building or apartment building to meet codes, you may need a different type. The exact type differs by your personal preference, room type, and building codes in your area.

Average Cost to Install Drywall Ceiling by Size

The ceiling drywall cost depends on the size, with prices ranging between $13 and $35 per board. Installation costs $58 to $195 per board. The installation cost is higher than installing drywall on walls because bringing the heavy panels up towards the ceiling and installing them takes more time than placing them on walls. It may also require more than one person, increasing the labor cost. There are several standard sizes of drywall boards, each having a different price. The most common size is 4 feet by 8 feet, but sheets can also be found in 4‘ by 12’ and 4’ by 16’. The size of the board used depends on the design of the room and your preferences. The table below shows the price you can expect to pay for each drywall board.

Drywall Repair Cost per Square Foot

Drywall repairs can be quite complicated and there are a lot of factors that can influence the cost. In general, the method of charging for drywall repair can differ depending on the scope of the project. For larger areas or multiple rooms, contractors tend to charge hourly rates rather than by the square foot. However, for smaller projects such as patching up holes or repairing cracks in a single wall, square footage charges may be more common. The cost range for repairs varies depending on the specific project requirements, with hourly costs being most typical for repairing multiple small cracks throughout the home or replacing larger sections of damage. For larger issues confined to a single wall, square footage pricing is more frequent. If you’re wondering what kind of costs you can expect, prices typically fall between $65 and $90 a square foot, and the cost per square foot may vary depending on the size of the repair project.

Drywall Cost Estimator

2 sq.ft.$150 – $260

Repair vs Replace Drywall

Superficial damage is easily repaired, such as nail holes and hairline cracks. Even moderate holes can generally be patched and repaired easily without needing to remove or replace the damaged section. However, very large sections of damage and sheetrock that are no longer structurally sound, such as drywall that has experienced water damage, should be replaced to address damage behind the wall and prevent further issues. Very old drywall may also not be repairable because the material can become more brittle. In this case, a damaged section may need to be removed and replaced.

Repair$300 – $600
Replacement$500 – $900

Drywall Installation Work

Installation of drywall, also known as sheet metal, masonry or wall panel construction, is an important part of home construction. Before the widespread use of drywall, it would take a long time to build a foundation that would hold up the paint or wallpaper. Now you can easily install your own drywall in a matter of hours, depending on the size of the room.

How to fix holes in Drywall?

Small nail and screw holes are easiest to fix. You need to use a putty knife to fill the holes with spackling or wall joint compound. You need to allow the area to dry, then sand lightly. If there is a larger hole then you must be covered with a bridging material for strength before patching compound can be applied.
