Sheetrock Installation Cost Tips

How Much Does Sheetrock Cost?  

Whether you refer to it as sheetrock, drywall, or gypsum board, it is still one of the most construction materials used today. This innovative material is primarily made up of gypsum, with paper covering it. It is used to create interior walls and ceilings faster and more easily than the older methods that used plaster. Drywall can be finished in many different ways and comes in different thicknesses, sizes, and types. For this reason, sheetrock installation comes with a range of associated costs.

The national average to install drywall ranges from $1,500 – $2,000, and most homeowners can expect to spend from $1,750 on a 1,000 square foot of standard ½” drywall, that has been both hung and finished. At the lower end, you can install 500 square foot of ½” standard drywall for around $690. On a higher scale, you can install 1,000 square feet of ½” soundproof drywall for around $7,500.

Cost per Square Foot

Drywall has various installation costs, depending on the sheetrock used and job size. Most installers will charge less a square foot for an entire house of drywall installations than for smaller jobs. Labor starts from approximately $1 per square foot, however, can increase to $2.50 per square foot, depending on the job size, and the level of finish desired.

Cost by Type

There are several different types of drywall available today. And in most applications, standard drywall will be used unless otherwise dictated. But, when installing drywall in basements, bathrooms, or other wet or damp areas, you should use a different type. If you are installing sheetrock in a commercial building, in order to meet building codes, you will need to use a different type.
